Teams up and down Scotland are looking to stop Celtic dominance in the competition, with the Hoops winning the last four tournaments. The final of last season’s was played less than a month ago, Celtic beating Hearts in a dramatic final.
Already this season’s has kicked off and we have reached the third round. But the first round has still to be completed, Camelon Juniors v Brora Rangers still to play a tie to complete that round, Hearts awaiting the victor.
More than half of Saturday’s second round ties were postponed due to the weather too, meaning 46 teams were in that hat for this round. Some glamour ties were pulled.
Dundee United could host Partick Thistle in one tie while Kilmarnock will travel to League One or Two opposition, Motherwell likewise facing lower league opposition. Cove Rangers travel to Ibrox in one glamour tie while Arbroath or Falkirk will make their way to Celtic Park. There’s also a Highland derby and an all-Premiership tie.
