Hibernian and Hearts have been drawn to face each other in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

The Edinburgh sides have been paired in the fourth round draw where Premiership sides enter the competition, with one of the city rivals certain to be knocked out at the first opportunity.

The sides drew 1-1 at Easter Road at the beginning of the league season, and will meet at Tynecastle on January 2 before their cup clash on the weekend of January 21.

The tie was one of the highlights of a draw that also sees Rangers travel to face St Johnstone as the holders begin their defence of the trophy under new manager Michael Beale.

Celtic have been drawn to face Morton at home, while Aberdeen travel to face West of Scotland Premier Division side Darvel.

University of Stirling made history by becoming the first university side to reach this stage of the competition and their reward is a trip to play Dundee United at Tannadice.

Linlithgow Rose are at home to Raith Rovers and Drumchapel United travel to play Elgin City in the other ties involving teams from outside the SPFL.

Premiership side Kilmarnock have a home tie against Dumbarton, while St Mirren will welcome Dundee to Paisley, Motherwell are away at Arbroath while Livingston go to Stenhousemuir.

Partick Thistle play Dunfermline, Alloa host Falkirk, Hamilton Accies play Ross County and Inverness are at home to Queen’s Park in an all-Championship tie.
