Celtic face Killie in Scottish Cup as Dundee United land winners of Rangers against St Mirren

By Sportsmail Reporter

Celtic will face a third successive away tie in this season's Active Nation Scottish Cup after being handed a quarter-final draw at Kilmarnock. 

The Hoops, who beat Morton and Dunfermline in the previous two rounds, will return to Rugby Park, where they lost for the first time in nine years when they went down 1-0 in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League last week.
