SPL - Celtic could face Caley in Cup

Mon, 09 Jan 15:00:00 2012

Celtic could face Scottish Cup nemesis Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the fifth round of this season's competition after the draw was made at Hampden Park by Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and former Italy boss Marcelo Lippi.

Inverness - 0

Caley must first overcome Dunfermline in a fourth-round replay if they are to have a chance of eliminating the current holders from the tournament at the Caledonian Stadium for the third time in their short history.

The first of their two wins over the Hoops came in February 2000, when a 3-1 win led to the infamous headline "Super Caley go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious" and spelled the end of John Barnes's disastrous reign of the Hoops.

Three years later lightning struck twice when Dennis Wyness scored the only goal to eliminate the Glasgow giants once again.

Rangers' reward for a comfortable 4-0 win over Arbroath in the last round is a home tie against Dundee United.

Last season's beaten finalists Motherwell have a home tie against First Division side Greenock Morton.
