Revised Scottish Cup Third Round Draw

The Revised Scottish Cup Third Round Draw was made late on Tuesday night after the Second Round fixtures were played out.

All 12 Scottish Premiership teams join in this round, as the competition really starts to get interesting.

The famous competition has been placed on hold due to the lower levels of Scottish football being halted in recent months.

However the remainder of the round two ties were completed on Tuesday and now we have a better idea of who plays who.

The magic of the cup is still very much alive in Scotland and the third round has thrown up some very tasty ties.

Both Rangers and Celtic have been handed home games, both of which are live on Premier Sports, while there is a potential Highland derby between Ross County and Inverness on the cards.

There is one all Premiership game and the likes of Livingston, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen and Hibs will play against lower league opposition.

Hearts were on the end of a shock cup upset when they faced Brora Rangers on Tuesday.

Christophe Berra cancelled out Jordan Macrae’s opener for Brora, but Martin MacLean’s winner stunned last season’s finalists in the second round

Neilson admits that it’s the worst result of his management career.

“Everyone has to question themselves that’s part of Hearts,” he said.

“From our perspective, it’s not good enough,” Neilson told BBC Scotland. “We still have remnants of the relegation season still there in the group, in the club. We need to deal with it and get it moved out.

“We can’t accept that tonight. It’s an embarrassment for the football club and for all of us involved, the standard is not good enough. We should not be coming here and losing games no matter how many shots on target we have, it doesn’t matter, it’s about putting the ball in the net.

“I knew when I came in here I was turning around a ship that was heading in the wrong direction, it had three wins out of 30 in the Premiership. We’ve changed it, we’ve turned it around in areas, but there’s still a lot of work to do here and you can see that tonight.”
