CELTIC face an away tie against Alloa after this evening’s Scottish Cup fourth round draw.
Ange Postecoglou’s side will travel to Clackmannanshire to take on the League One outfit who are managed by ex-Ibrox captain and Scotland international Barry Ferguson.
The ex-midfielder took over the role from Peter Grant in the summer when the one-time Hoops favourite left to manage Dunfermline. Unfortunately, the ex-Celt was sacked last month following a string of bad results.
The Parkhead men are going for a fifth success in six years in the competition and the intriguing tie against Alloa at their 3,10 capacity ground will almost certainly be televised live by Premier Sports or BBC Scotland.
Holders St Johnstone face a trip to either Kelty Hearts or Montrose while Giovanni van Bronckhorst will manage the Govan side in the competition for the first time with a home tie against League Two Stirling Albion.
Last year’s runners-up Hibs, who take on Celtic in the Premier Sports League Cup Final at Hampden on December 19, will face either Cove Rangers or Queen of the South in Edinburgh, while Scott Brown’s Aberdeen have a home draw against League Two outfit Edinburgh City.
