Good afternoon and welcome to the results show, it is one of my

:00:17.:00:22.

favourite weekends of the year, because it is the fourth round of

:00:23.:00:27.

the William Hill Scottish Cup. Giants will be killed, potentially,

:00:28.:00:32.

banana skins will be slip on and romantics will be brokenhearted. We

:00:33.:00:40.

have the Motherwell captain Keith Lasley and Steven Thompson. Let's

:00:41.:00:43.

feast our eyes on the latest scores and one full-time result. I will

:00:44.:00:48.

cherry pick this. The full-time score from Ibrox is

:00:49.:01:28.

2-1. Rangers going through to the next round.

:01:29.:01:43.

Two matches to be played tomorrow. As I told you, Rangers are the first

:01:44.:01:51.

team through to the last 16, beating Motherwell in the lunchtime

:01:52.:01:55.

kick-off. Kenny Miller got the winning goal a minute from time,

:01:56.:02:00.

only five minutes after Rangers drew level. It looked as though

:02:01.:02:05.

Motherwell were heading to the next round when they got a headed goal.

:02:06.:02:09.

Miller equalised with another header and then Rangers' new signing set up

:02:10.:02:17.

Miller who went past Craig Samson for the winner. Keith, I don't know

:02:18.:02:23.

what to say. It was blue Monday on Monday and that was a sickener of a

:02:24.:02:28.

Saturday. How do you feel? I do not know what to say. It is d j vu for

:02:29.:02:30.

know what to say. It is d ja vu for us unfortunately. We were beaten

:02:31.:02:35.

earlier in the season and it was similar. We were 1-0 up and again it

:02:36.:02:43.

was Kenny Miller. We went in there with a game plan and we thought we

:02:44.:02:49.

executed pretty well. Then we felt comfortable and that is the biggest

:02:50.:02:53.

disappointment, that we did feel comfortable in the match and to lose

:02:54.:02:58.

the next goal is sickening. You thought you were home. At Ibrox away

:02:59.:03:06.

from home you still know you have to be on your guard right until the

:03:07.:03:10.

end, but we felt as if it was going to be our day and we had good

:03:11.:03:16.

support there today. When Miller scores a goal, in my mind they are

:03:17.:03:20.

going on to win the match. But it wasn't to be. As hard as it is, we

:03:21.:03:26.

go away with our wounds and we have to look forward to next week. He

:03:27.:03:32.

hugged you when you came into the studio. I could tell. I thought

:03:33.:03:37.

Keith was Man of the Match. Motherwell defended ever so well and

:03:38.:03:42.

their game plan was executed brilliantly, to a tee. In the second

:03:43.:03:46.

half the team grew into the game and created more opportunities. The goal

:03:47.:03:53.

was a thing of beauty. The movement from Louis Mould for this goal is as

:03:54.:03:59.

good as it gets. He takes the defender to the front post and then

:04:00.:04:02.

he dropped him and the header was fantastic. At that point I am

:04:03.:04:09.

thinking Motherwell. Rangers, for all their possession, had not

:04:10.:04:11.

threatened Motherwell too much in the game. As the game wore on you

:04:12.:04:16.

knew Rangers would get an opportunity. All credit to Rangers

:04:17.:04:21.

because they're headed goal that Kenny Miller scored was an excellent

:04:22.:04:26.

goal. Maybe Motherwell could have dealt with it better. But to lose

:04:27.:04:30.

the goal that you did in the last minute and the manner. Steve McManus

:04:31.:04:34.

is one of the most experienced players and has seen it and done it

:04:35.:04:39.

and bought the T-shirt. To make a mistake like he did, he tried to put

:04:40.:04:44.

a wee ball into the middle of the park and he tries a cute one into

:04:45.:04:48.

the middle of the park and the new boy for Rangers threads a great pass

:04:49.:04:53.

through for Kenny. Great credit to Kenny Miller, even at 37 he still

:04:54.:04:58.

produces. He is one of Rangers BIG BROTHER: Great players, week in,

:04:59.:05:03.

week out. On reflection and draw would have been a fair result. What

:05:04.:05:14.

was the mood like post-match? It was very quiet. I am still going through

:05:15.:05:18.

things that happened in the match. Are you a bit shell-shocked? I think

:05:19.:05:24.

so. It will take a couple of days and we have to sit down and look

:05:25.:05:30.

back on it. Unfortunately positives are hard to see at the moment.

:05:31.:05:38.

Speaking of hard to see! We decided earlier that you would sit in the

:05:39.:05:44.

studio and cast an eye over the match in Dingwall between Ross

:05:45.:05:47.

County and Dundee United. Little did we know that it would be fogbound.

:05:48.:05:57.

Dundee United with a white strip has made it even harder. Dundee United

:05:58.:06:01.

started with an outstanding goal, a great one to look forward to

:06:02.:06:05.

tonight. And then there was another superb finish. And then Cammy Bell

:06:06.:06:10.

spilt a couple of crosses and he should have done better and Ross

:06:11.:06:16.

County get up to four goals. Dundee United in the last three games have

:06:17.:06:21.

lost ten goals. They have problems defensively. I was speaking to

:06:22.:06:27.

Raymond McKinnon and he said defensively, we have been strong.

:06:28.:06:34.

That has not been the case. Four in this match so far. In the second

:06:35.:06:43.

half, Floods came on and he hardened them up a bit. But it has been the

:06:44.:06:51.

pick of the game is for sure. Do you think Dundee United's best chance is

:06:52.:06:56.

the fog comes down even bigger? They are still capable. It is only two

:06:57.:07:01.

goals. They get another one and it is game on and that might change

:07:02.:07:05.

Ross County's mentality as well and they might sit back. I think in the

:07:06.:07:10.

second half Ross County are definitely the better team. But it

:07:11.:07:23.

is a more even contest. It is time for our first bounce around the

:07:24.:07:28.

stadium was this afternoon. It was one apiece between Inverness and

:07:29.:07:38.

Elgin. Good afternoon. It is still 1-1. It is the first time Elgin have

:07:39.:07:43.

hosted top-flight opposition in 45 years and they are making a fist of

:07:44.:07:49.

it. In fact, they went ahead. Mark Nicholson with the final shot. It

:07:50.:07:54.

sneaked in at the bottom corner and gave Elgin a lead. Lionel Cole has

:07:55.:08:00.

been the danger man for the visitors and he walks through to the centre

:08:01.:08:04.

of defence to put Inverness back on level terms. A few moments ago there

:08:05.:08:11.

was a header that crashed off the bar. Inverness are back into it, but

:08:12.:08:16.

we could have an upset on the cards. Let's stick with a potential upset

:08:17.:08:22.

and head to dens Park. It is Dundee against Saint Mirren. It looks like

:08:23.:08:28.

there could be a shock, but Saint Mirren are deservedly in front. John

:08:29.:08:32.

Sutton put St Mirren in front after 24 minutes. He found the bottom

:08:33.:08:41.

right-hand corner. They added a second early in the second half when

:08:42.:08:47.

McKenzie fired home from ten yards. Some confusion about the goal,

:08:48.:08:53.

either way it was St Mirren's second goal. Dundee have failed to take

:08:54.:08:56.

their chances and that could be costly. What would have been

:08:57.:09:01.

undoubtedly the biggest upset of the day. Bonnyrigg Rose against

:09:02.:09:08.

Hibernian at Tynecastle. A Scottish Cup dream not becoming a reality for

:09:09.:09:14.

Bonnyrigg Rose. They trailed by 5-1. It was a fairly even opening ten

:09:15.:09:20.

minutes, but after that the ruthless streak of Hibernian kicked in. James

:09:21.:09:28.

Keating had a fabulous effort. Chris Humphrey made it 3-0 after 24

:09:29.:09:33.

minutes. Bonnyrigg got a lifeline with Dean Hoskins who scored a

:09:34.:09:40.

penalty. It was 3-1 at half-time. After the second half Jason Cummings

:09:41.:09:44.

put the game beyond doubt. A brilliant scissor kick. And then

:09:45.:09:51.

Stevenson himself added another goal in 61 minutes. Five different

:09:52.:09:56.

scorers for Hibs, there might be more. Potential upset looks less

:09:57.:10:03.

likely. There has been another goal in the Inverness game. Yes, our goal

:10:04.:10:11.

for Inverness. It hit the back of the net as opposed to the crossbar.

:10:12.:10:18.

Inverness now lead by 2-1. And another go at Tynecastle. And it is

:10:19.:10:27.

another goal from Jason Cummings for Hibs. It is 6-1. The Premiership,

:10:28.:10:38.

Aberdeen at home to the bottom of League 1 club. It took 30 minutes

:10:39.:10:45.

for Aberdeen to make the breakthrough against stubborn

:10:46.:10:51.

Stranraer defending. But it was only ever going to be a case of how many

:10:52.:10:52.

for the Dons. Aberdeen did not need ever going to be a case of how many

:10:53.:11:04.

a helping hand, but Morgan Neill gave them one anyway, conceding and

:11:05.:11:08.

needless penalty early in the second-half. It was excellently

:11:09.:11:17.

taken by Rooney. Only a series of breathtaking saves has spared the

:11:18.:11:23.

bottom club a real doing. And we can go to Partick Thistle against

:11:24.:11:40.

Frommer teen United. Half an hour for the second goal to come, Stephen

:11:41.:11:46.

Lawless set up nicely by Welsh. Barely 60 seconds had ticked away

:11:47.:11:49.

when Chris Erskine got his second of the game. It was a delightful

:11:50.:11:56.

finish. Just one goal in the second half for Partick Thistle, Abdul

:11:57.:12:04.

Osman with a lovely volley. John Welch has gone off, he has been the

:12:05.:12:09.

best player for me. Here she is a goal free zone this afternoon. It is

:12:10.:12:15.

0-0 and no goals between Kilmarnock and Hamilton either. It all seems to

:12:16.:12:21.

be happening everywhere else today. There has been precious little in

:12:22.:12:26.

the way of chapters today. Callum Roberts drew a comfortable save from

:12:27.:12:32.

the Hamilton goalkeeper. Hamilton have thrashed a header over. The

:12:33.:12:37.

main talking point was the fact that Lee Clark named by debutants in his

:12:38.:12:42.

starting line-up. He left Coulibaly on the bench. There are no goals,

:12:43.:12:53.

but I want to start there just because. That interesting point,

:12:54.:12:58.

five debutants. Is that because they do not care that much about the

:12:59.:13:04.

Scottish Cup? Or is it because Lee Clark thinks changes have got to be

:13:05.:13:11.

made. I would agree. The argument down south is about diluting the FA

:13:12.:13:15.

Cup. It is not the same in the Scottish Cup, it means everything to

:13:16.:13:19.

everybody, players, managers and fans. I do not agree with that. I

:13:20.:13:25.

knew that would happen. There would be a goal. It is 5-2. Can you talk

:13:26.:13:34.

us through the fog? Yes, it was a great pass and it is laid back to

:13:35.:13:36.

the edge of the box. On the first great pass and it is laid back to

:13:37.:13:46.

shot Bell gets a good block on it. That is game, set and match for Ross

:13:47.:13:52.

County. That is why we pay you big bucks!

:13:53.:13:58.

Looking for upsets, it looks like the most likely place is Dundee for

:13:59.:14:06.

St Mirren. Your former club 2-0 up. Fantastic result for them. Not a

:14:07.:14:13.

result yet! Tempting fate, sorry. In terms of the league, it has not been

:14:14.:14:19.

going great. I'm sure they would swap it for three points but you

:14:20.:14:20.

have to take the win. The new swap it for three points but you

:14:21.:14:24.

signings came in as well. Maybe that has given them a boost. They have

:14:25.:14:28.

not been there, not been used to going through this tough period. Not

:14:29.:14:33.

suffering from a lack of confidence. You know how that is when you are

:14:34.:14:39.

struggling. It builds. And you know when you get that cup game when you

:14:40.:14:42.

have been struggling in the league, it is a different pressure

:14:43.:14:45.

altogether, isn't it? It takes you away from the league. You don't have

:14:46.:14:50.

it sitting on your shoulders. The supporters can't understand it. They

:14:51.:14:52.

it sitting on your shoulders. The could beat eight shahada team. That

:14:53.:14:57.

is the psychology, what St Mirren needed. And Dundee's home record has

:14:58.:15:01.

been phenomenal, winning four of the last time, the last before the

:15:02.:15:04.

winter break against St Johnstone so that makes it even better. We are

:15:05.:15:10.

getting excited by the Elgin City score against Inverness, especially

:15:11.:15:10.

Stephen when he thought it was 1-0 score against Inverness, especially

:15:11.:15:16.

when it was 1-1. It was looking dodgy for Inverness. Yes, Inverness

:15:17.:15:20.

find themselves struggling in the league at the moment. Albeit I

:15:21.:15:23.

believe they are in a false position. They are better than that,

:15:24.:15:30.

than the squad is showing, in bottom position. These games are always

:15:31.:15:33.

difficult but it looks as though they have managed to turn things

:15:34.:15:37.

round. Another goal between Bonnyrigg Rose and Hibs at

:15:38.:15:42.

Tynecastle. Kenny? It is getting sorer and sorrow for the junior

:15:43.:15:46.

side, it is now 1-7, and James Keatings has his second of the game.

:15:47.:15:50.

Martin Boyle, the substitute, played him in and from a tight angle on the

:15:51.:15:54.

right-hand side, he has squeezed it into the far corner, so we really

:15:55.:15:58.

need Bonnyrigg Rose to close the doors at the back because this is

:15:59.:16:05.

getting humiliating. With all the James Bond stuff this week, at least

:16:06.:16:10.

it is not... You've been dying to get that in! Keith, speaking to Neil

:16:11.:16:16.

Lennon this week, he said they had to make sure there was no

:16:17.:16:19.

romanticism, it would be a tricky tie. It has not proven that way,

:16:20.:16:26.

hasn't -- has it? They have been the ultimate professionals. You always

:16:27.:16:30.

expect Hibs to get through, but in the first 20 minutes, if you don't

:16:31.:16:33.

get the first goal, the crowd can start to get a new and before you

:16:34.:16:36.

know it, you invite pressure on yourselves but it looks as though

:16:37.:16:39.

they have taken care of business there. I think it is a fantastic day

:16:40.:16:44.

out for Bonnyrigg. Speaking earlier, 7000, 8000 fans there which is an

:16:45.:16:51.

unbelievable turnout, even to get to cheer a goal at least and enjoy the

:16:52.:16:53.

unbelievable turnout, even to get to day. They won't enjoy this because

:16:54.:16:57.

I'm not letting them creep under the radar, but 2-0, Falkirk, Morton

:16:58.:17:03.

going tremendously well. They got to the League Cup semifinal and it

:17:04.:17:06.

looks as though they are going to put Falkirk, another Championship

:17:07.:17:10.

site of the sort. They've been ever so impressive under Jim Duffy,

:17:11.:17:13.

really consistent in the league and this was going to be quite tough

:17:14.:17:16.

because Falkirk and Morton are quite evenly matched but at home or are

:17:17.:17:20.

superb. They have drawn the two previous league encounters this

:17:21.:17:22.

season so far but it looks like Morton will win this. Elsewhere, a

:17:23.:17:28.

couple of Premiership clubs cruising twins, Partick Thistle 4-0

:17:29.:17:30.

Formartine United which looks a formality. This'll come you have

:17:31.:17:35.

been watching that occasionally, coming in. Again, coming back to the

:17:36.:17:40.

Hibs scenario, similar opposition, and again, I remember being involved

:17:41.:17:44.

in cup games before and you really need to still have that professional

:17:45.:17:48.

head on and go out and not think you are going to be able to turn up and

:17:49.:17:51.

get the result. Again, Partick have gone out with the right attitude,

:17:52.:17:55.

gone in front which is massive in these games and once you get in

:17:56.:17:59.

front, the longer the game goes on, part-time opposition, they will tend

:18:00.:18:05.

to tire. That is when the next goal, more goals tend to come. Partick had

:18:06.:18:11.

a good festive period, seven out of nine so they went into the game in

:18:12.:18:13.

a good festive period, seven out of really good form despite the small

:18:14.:18:17.

break. They are continuing the form. A bit concerned about that, I was

:18:18.:18:20.

thinking some of the Premiership clubs have had a long break, they

:18:21.:18:24.

might be a bit rusty but it does not seem to have proven that way. That

:18:25.:18:30.

was a good dig! I wish I was back there, after today. But I think the

:18:31.:18:37.

winter break, yes, you have time off but what it does, certainly from our

:18:38.:18:41.

point of view, we went to the game with a fit squad, we had given the

:18:42.:18:46.

guys who were maybe struggling with injuries and niggles, and again, it

:18:47.:18:49.

gives you time to prepare for the match. We knew we had two weeks odd

:18:50.:18:53.

to prepare. All right, it never turned out the way we wanted it

:18:54.:18:56.

today but I think a lot of it was right and it gives you time to

:18:57.:19:00.

prepare properly. It would have turned all right had it not been for

:19:01.:19:03.

the last minute. It would have been a decent result to take back. We

:19:04.:19:07.

would have been delighted. The game plan worked for you. Don't talk it

:19:08.:19:12.

down. You are going to Tenerife on your own! Aberdeen were in Dubai,

:19:13.:19:15.

down. You are going to Tenerife on compare that to the preparations

:19:16.:19:18.

Stranraer had, sucking Andrew Amonde, going to the game at

:19:19.:19:21.

Pittodrie without a manager, Aberdeen, look at these corals,

:19:22.:19:24.

Niall McGinn and Rooney and you can see the Gulf. Absolutely, Stranraer

:19:25.:19:29.

has been struggling down the bottom of League 1 and Aberdeen actually,

:19:30.:19:33.

right before the break, they did not want it, the one team that didn't

:19:34.:19:36.

because they had built up a head of steam, beating braking, back to the

:19:37.:19:43.

team they were last year or even at the start of the season and a lot of

:19:44.:19:46.

that is down to team selection. Derek McInnes has gone back to what

:19:47.:19:49.

he knows, picking his best and strongest players and it is working

:19:50.:19:52.

for him and today, he picked the strongest Aberdeen side, for me, and

:19:53.:19:56.

it has worked with Niall McGinn and Rooney producing. Actually, not a

:19:57.:20:04.

turning point but certainly, the trigger for the form was the game

:20:05.:20:07.

against us and it was the team selection, Rooney, Niall McGinn,

:20:08.:20:11.

Hayes, it seemed to be, those boys in midfield and it just seemed to be

:20:12.:20:17.

back to that real 11 that has got them success at this point and it

:20:18.:20:21.

looks as though that is the 11 that Derek is going to trust to hopefully

:20:22.:20:24.

go forward and fight for second place. One of the teams probably

:20:25.:20:30.

desperate to get to the winter break when Inverness, bottom of the

:20:31.:20:33.

Premiership and they have recruited one of your former team-mates, Henri

:20:34.:20:39.

Anier, who has just come on. Yes, he is a terrific athlete, he really

:20:40.:20:44.

looks after himself, Estonian international. He has bounced about

:20:45.:20:48.

a few clubs but certainly on his day, he can be a handful. I think

:20:49.:20:52.

probably a different option to what they have got already and I think as

:20:53.:20:56.

a manager at this time of the Yukon in January, that is what you are

:20:57.:20:58.

looking for, something different from what you have got. -- at this

:20:59.:21:04.

time of the year, in January. It has always struck me when I have watched

:21:05.:21:08.

him. Is to rivet athlete going both ways, running in behind and when you

:21:09.:21:12.

don't have the ball, he does a shift behind. Crawford is not much of an

:21:13.:21:18.

athlete but you can't fault his. Another as Bonnyrigg Rose. 1-8 now

:21:19.:21:24.

and Jordon Forster with the header from a free kick which was riding by

:21:25.:21:29.

James Keatings. Bad challenge by Dean Hoskins on Chris Humphrey and

:21:30.:21:33.

I'm afraid Bonnyrigg Rose were made to pay. Just under ten minutes to

:21:34.:21:37.

go. We'll Hibs make it ten? That is the question. We will find out in

:21:38.:21:43.

the fullness of time but right now, chaps, we can sit back and relax so

:21:44.:21:47.

we will take a break from the Scottish Cup action and look at the

:21:48.:21:50.

lunchtime match in the English Premier League, Liverpool started

:21:51.:21:53.

the day in third place at home to struggling Swansea. Let's hear how

:21:54.:21:58.

it went from Steve Bower. A result hugely significant at both ends of

:21:59.:22:02.

the Premier League table as Swansea stunned Liverpool to end their

:22:03.:22:04.

unbeaten home record of 25 games. They were 2-0 up, five minutes into

:22:05.:22:11.

the second half after defending very well in the first. The Arendse with

:22:12.:22:14.

both goals. But Liverpool hit back with the 2-goal hero themselves,

:22:15.:22:19.

Firmino with both, and with 21 minutes to play, it was firmly

:22:20.:22:23.

forward for Liverpool to go and launch a memorable victory but

:22:24.:22:26.

Swansea had not read the perfect script. Up popped Sigurdsson on 72

:22:27.:22:31.

minutes, with a left footed shot steered past Mignolet and despite

:22:32.:22:34.

Liverpool's efforts which ended with Joel Matip as an emergency centre

:22:35.:22:38.

forward, they could not flip -- pull it back. Their first home defeat in

:22:39.:22:43.

over a year in all competitions at Anfield. Time will tell how

:22:44.:22:46.

potentially damaging this is for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp but for

:22:47.:22:51.

Swansea, a piece of history, their first-ever league win at Anfield and

:22:52.:22:54.

a shot of belief in the arm in their attempts to stay in the Premier

:22:55.:23:00.

League. Liverpool 2-3 Swansea. In the Scottish Cup, that might just be

:23:01.:23:04.

the surprise of the day, the score. A big surprise for me, I thought

:23:05.:23:09.

Liverpool were going to be the team that would challenge Chelsea. I'm

:23:10.:23:10.

not saying they are not now but a that would challenge Chelsea. I'm

:23:11.:23:14.

result like that gives them a dent. They could have gone second. 2-0 up

:23:15.:23:20.

at home and fighting to win league titles, you don't lose to the bottom

:23:21.:23:24.

team at home, 3-2, when you are too- zero up, that is not a team that is

:23:25.:23:29.

going to win the Premiership. The last time you on the show, you were

:23:30.:23:33.

talking about Manchester City. They looked as though they would run away

:23:34.:23:36.

with it, leaving Chelsea and Liverpool in the dust but Chelsea,

:23:37.:23:40.

like Manchester City did about six or eight weeks ago, are doing that.

:23:41.:23:44.

It can all turn around but a result like that for Liverpool, as I

:23:45.:23:48.

said... New manager as well at Swansea. Massive for them. He will

:23:49.:23:54.

hope to build on that. Right, we will head back to Borough Briggs in

:23:55.:23:57.

the Scottish Cup, Elgin City against Inverness. That match kicked off a

:23:58.:24:03.

bit late. It did, ten minutes late because there were still so many

:24:04.:24:08.

fans outside. It is a fantastic attendance, 3500 inside. They have

:24:09.:24:13.

been treated to a very good game as well, Inverness very close to making

:24:14.:24:16.

it safe, Iain Vigurs with a free kick that crashed back of the bar.

:24:17.:24:20.

Twice Inverness have hit the woodwork but they lead as we go into

:24:21.:24:26.

the final minutes, 2-1. Inverness will be happy to see that one out if

:24:27.:24:31.

they do. It looked dodgy for a while, 1-0 to Elgin City who are

:24:32.:24:34.

decent but the gap between the sides, and the difference in budget

:24:35.:24:38.

and players, you would not expect it. Richie Foran spoke about the

:24:39.:24:43.

winter break, how the team had started to look low in confidence

:24:44.:24:46.

and that could have been a severe blow if they had lost that one

:24:47.:24:50.

today. I think so. As I said, I think they are innate. Position but

:24:51.:24:55.

when you get a run of results, we know from our own experience, the

:24:56.:24:58.

year we were in the play-offs and things, the longer you are in that

:24:59.:25:03.

part of the table, no matter how good you feel the squat is, you need

:25:04.:25:07.

to get results as a result like that, well, Richie Foran will be

:25:08.:25:10.

hoping it can kick-start their league form. Are Dundee still

:25:11.:25:12.

capable of getting a result at home league form. Are Dundee still

:25:13.:25:18.

to St Mirren in the cup? The bodies still 2- -- two goals to the good.

:25:19.:25:22.

And another chance for Clarkson who has come on as a substitute, but his

:25:23.:25:26.

shot was saved by the likes of Scott Bain. It looks cut and dried as far

:25:27.:25:30.

as St Mirren are concerned because Dundee Civic can't create anything.

:25:31.:25:34.

I have to say, it looks more likely St Mirren will add to their tally.

:25:35.:25:40.

It looks like Dundee are heading out but Aberdeen are comfortably through

:25:41.:25:43.

to the fifth round. They were at home to Stranraer today, the bottom

:25:44.:25:48.

club in League 1. That match has now reached its conclusion. A convincing

:25:49.:25:53.

win for the Dons. Let's go to Scott Davies. Doubles from Niall McGinn

:25:54.:25:56.

and Adam Rooney Majher Aberdeen made it past the first hurdle in the

:25:57.:26:00.

Scottish Cup for the first time in three seasons. The Dons could have

:26:01.:26:03.

beaten their struggling League 1 opponents by double that for - zero

:26:04.:26:07.

margin added not been for a series of outstanding saves from the

:26:08.:26:10.

Stranraer goalkeeper, Cameron Bell. For all his heroics, it was a case

:26:11.:26:13.

of when rather than if the Premiership side would score, Rooney

:26:14.:26:17.

provided the answer on the half-hour, Jonny Hayes key in the

:26:18.:26:24.

setup, why Cardiff have made two unsuccessful bids for him this month

:26:25.:26:27.

so far. Niall McGinn made it two before the break, Rooney scored his

:26:28.:26:30.

13th of the season just after it and Niall McGinn rounded it off with his

:26:31.:26:33.

tenth of the season after 54 minutes. So Aberdeen comfortably

:26:34.:26:38.

through. The Scottish Cup is not one that Derek McInnes has enjoyed great

:26:39.:26:41.

success with Aberdeen, they have been more League Cup specialists and

:26:42.:26:43.

he will be targeting that this season. Yes, he made the point

:26:44.:26:47.

earlier this season when Aberdeen reached the League Cup final, that

:26:48.:26:51.

Aberdeen should be competing for cup finals like they have been for

:26:52.:26:55.

decades. He feels as though that should come back now they have the

:26:56.:26:58.

squad to do it. They will not be far away. I think the cup final will

:26:59.:27:03.

between the top sides this year. I thought you were going to predict it

:27:04.:27:07.

there! And the score as well? I'm not that good. I think Celtic will

:27:08.:27:10.

be there but it's going to be one of the top six that go and compete

:27:11.:27:15.

against Celtic for the top final -- that the final. Parted just outside

:27:16.:27:17.

against Celtic for the top final -- the Premiership top six and they are

:27:18.:27:20.

safely through to the fifth round this afternoon. It is full-time

:27:21.:27:23.

against Formartine United. Let's get the story from Paul Mitchell. 4-0,

:27:24.:27:29.

the final score, Partick clinical and entertaining today as they

:27:30.:27:33.

cantered past Formartine United, whose previous round against Annan

:27:34.:27:36.

Athletic, therefore - zero win proved to be the high point of their

:27:37.:27:40.

season. They were taught a lesson by Partick Thistle today, who really in

:27:41.:27:47.

the second half should have scored more. They were seeking the perfect

:27:48.:27:49.

goal rather than running up the tally. In the first half, it was

:27:50.:27:52.

3-0, a double by Chris Erskine and in between a cracking goal from

:27:53.:27:55.

Steven Lawless, the only one in the second coming from Osman, and it was

:27:56.:27:58.

worth seeing Sean Welsh down the right, playing the ball into the

:27:59.:28:01.

middle and a lovely volley by Abdul Osman. For Martine should have got

:28:02.:28:04.

on the scoresheet but the terrible mistake, a kicking error set up

:28:05.:28:11.

Gethin's Kadric in the last round but he leaves without a goal today.

:28:12.:28:15.

It was not to be for the Highland league club and Partick are very

:28:16.:28:20.

safely through. Thomas journey looks as though he enjoyed that one. Kept

:28:21.:28:22.

safely through. Thomas journey looks a clean sheet. As I said before, the

:28:23.:28:28.

Inverness clean sheet, hopefully these results can take you on into

:28:29.:28:32.

next week, busy with the pictures now and Partick, I think... A run of

:28:33.:28:37.

four matches altogether. Their league form had been good before the

:28:38.:28:42.

break as well. For me, the manager has done a fantastic job and he

:28:43.:28:46.

continues to put his soul into it. When you play gets Partick, they

:28:47.:28:49.

play in the right way, some fantastic football. They will be

:28:50.:28:52.

looking to challenge for the top six. Let's go to Somerset park...

:28:53.:28:57.

No, we were going to hear from Charlie but now we're going to

:28:58.:29:01.

Dingwall, instead. It is full-time, I believe? I hope so!

:29:02.:29:10.

Ross County in the end were convincing winners.

:29:11.:29:15.

They started the match ever so well. It is not full-time. It must be the

:29:16.:29:26.

fog. It definitely is a full-time. Boyce scored a goal, Quinn scored a

:29:27.:29:31.

goal. From the Dundee perspective the goals are bad defensively. Then

:29:32.:29:35.

they go back just before half-time and Andrews scored another goal. His

:29:36.:29:40.

first goal is incredible, but he gets another one just before

:29:41.:29:47.

half-time. Dundee improved with a couple of substitutions and looked

:29:48.:29:50.

harder to break down, but they did not threaten. Then Ross County got

:29:51.:29:58.

another goal. As it stood it finished 5-2. Liam Boyce on the

:29:59.:30:03.

scoresheet once again. A prolific scorer. He was fantastic for them

:30:04.:30:12.

last year. I think he had a little bit of a barren spell. But he looks

:30:13.:30:20.

like he is back in the goals. 6-2. It must be the fog! Did you see that

:30:21.:30:35.

goal going in? Come on, lads. Give us a chance. I think it was Jim

:30:36.:30:43.

O'Brien. He slotted it away nicely into the corner. To be fair, it was

:30:44.:30:52.

the last kick of the ball. Do you know what? Let's hear from Alistair

:30:53.:30:58.

Lambert. He was up there at the Dingwall watching the aid goal match

:30:59.:31:02.

between Ross County and Dundee United. Take us through it. What a

:31:03.:31:09.

match it was. It was threatened not to go ahead because of the fog in

:31:10.:31:14.

Dingwall. I am so glad, as the others in the ground will be, apart

:31:15.:31:20.

from the Dundee United fans. They got up and running with a superb

:31:21.:31:27.

volley. Tony Andrew equalised with an equally special goal for Dundee

:31:28.:31:32.

United, but then Ross County managed to assert their authority when Quinn

:31:33.:31:41.

scored and then boys made it 4-1 before the half hour was out. Just

:31:42.:31:52.

on the stroke of half-time they were presented with another goal. United

:31:53.:31:59.

dominated the start of the second half, but they were put to bed by a

:32:00.:32:08.

fifth goal for Ross County. Just on the stroke of full-time Jim O'Brien

:32:09.:32:14.

on his Ross County debut made it 6-2. They progress to the next round

:32:15.:32:23.

of the Scottish Cup. United concentrate solely on promotion in

:32:24.:32:34.

the Premiership. Kilmarnock versus Hamilton, Richard, fill us in. It

:32:35.:32:38.

was late drama at Rugby Park. Hamilton scored the only goal of the

:32:39.:32:45.

game in time added on. Being stepped up to score a penalty. It was hard

:32:46.:32:50.

luck for Kilmarnock, they had a chance early on in the second half.

:32:51.:32:54.

They played five new players at the starting line-up and left Coulibaly

:32:55.:33:01.

on the bench. It is a very disappointing afternoon for the home

:33:02.:33:04.

side. It was a late goal and Kilmarnock are into the next round.

:33:05.:33:10.

I think the score line is that wrong way around, it is 1-0 to Hamilton.

:33:11.:33:16.

And the score line at Bonnyrigg Rose and Hibs. It finished 8-1 in this

:33:17.:33:23.

Scottish Cup tied. The dream is over for Bonnyrigg and a bit of a

:33:24.:33:27.

humiliation for them. That they got here in the first place through a

:33:28.:33:34.

terrific run and they'd be done in the last round. It just did not

:33:35.:33:38.

happen today. The opening ten minutes was even, but after that

:33:39.:33:43.

Hibernian's ruthless streak showed through. James Keating 's made it

:33:44.:33:53.

two, Chris Humphrey put in the third, then Dean Hoskins got a

:33:54.:33:57.

lifeline for Bonnyrigg Rose. It was a penalty and Dean Hoskins fired it

:33:58.:34:04.

into make it 3-1 for Hibs. Then Hibs resumed normal business after the

:34:05.:34:15.

break. Jason Cummings made it four, then he got another one to make it

:34:16.:34:20.

six, Jason Keating 's made it 7-1. Then Jordan Foster with a downward

:34:21.:34:27.

header from a free kick made it 8-1. Thanks for bearing with me and

:34:28.:34:31.

making it through all those goals. The Bonnyrigg fans are clapping the

:34:32.:34:39.

team, but their journey is over. Chris McLaughlin has been quiet this

:34:40.:34:43.

afternoon, but he will have plenty to tell us about the mass between

:34:44.:34:48.

modern and Falkirk. It was a good contest, but the home side is

:34:49.:34:54.

deserving of 2-0 victory. Jamie Lindsay and Ross Forbes got goals

:34:55.:34:56.

deserving of 2-0 victory. Jamie either side of the break. I

:34:57.:35:00.

defensive mix-up in the Falkirk defence and the visitors had a

:35:01.:35:04.

couple of decent chances, the best way James Craig. But it was saved at

:35:05.:35:13.

point-blank range. But Morton are through. Not only are they threw to

:35:14.:35:19.

the next round, they are also stretching their unbeaten run to 17

:35:20.:35:28.

games at Cappielow. Morton are through and so are their arch rivals

:35:29.:35:34.

St Mirren. Perhaps the surprise of the day. A shock win for Morton

:35:35.:35:42.

which caused a real upset. Sutton fired St Mirren in front after 25

:35:43.:35:49.

minutes. Gary McKenzie swept another one in from ten yards. A whole host

:35:50.:35:55.

of chances wasted, but St Mirren deserve their place in the next

:35:56.:36:00.

round. Charlie, I was on the verge of coming to you earlier when it

:36:01.:36:05.

struck full-time in Dingwall. I hope it has been worth waiting for.

:36:06.:36:11.

Always worth waiting for for you, David! But not much of a game here

:36:12.:36:16.

this afternoon. All the action was in the first half. McKeever had a

:36:17.:36:21.

header for Queens Park which was cleared off the line. Paul Wood

:36:22.:36:24.

might have done better with another effort. Brian McKeever nearly scored

:36:25.:36:32.

an own goal for Queens Park and Scott McKenna had a header for Ayr

:36:33.:36:40.

United. The second half died a death. Not much happened at all.

:36:41.:36:45.

They all do it again on Tuesday at Camden and that will be a whole lot

:36:46.:36:49.

by death, let me assure you. That is a bold prediction. The surprise of

:36:50.:36:55.

the day, St Mirren winning away to Dundee. We were chatting earlier and

:36:56.:37:01.

St Mirren are like specialists. They are in the Challenge Cup semis.

:37:02.:37:10.

There you go. We were both at the 1987 cup final when St Mirren won

:37:11.:37:14.

it. 30 years ago. That shows our age. It was a long time ago and that

:37:15.:37:20.

was the very first game of football I went to, so it is quite evocative

:37:21.:37:27.

for me for St Mirren to get to that cup final. It is a fantastic result

:37:28.:37:31.

and I hope it gives them a confidence boost. Elgin city against

:37:32.:37:38.

Premiership Inverness. Inverness put their name in the draw for the next

:37:39.:37:42.

round, but it was not exactly plain sailing. In front of over 3000 fans,

:37:43.:37:48.

it was the home side that took the lead. Larnell Cole got his first

:37:49.:37:57.

goal for his new club and Doumbouya had a header denied by the crossbar.

:37:58.:38:01.

Then he made up for it, albeit with a little deflection. It may have

:38:02.:38:08.

been harsh on Elgin who can take plenty of positives from this

:38:09.:38:14.

performance. It finished 2-1. That takes us nicely to today's

:38:15.:38:25.

classified round-up. And we begin today with the William Hill Scottish

:38:26.:38:27.

Cup fourth round. A couple of games tomorrow. Raith

:38:28.:39:17.

Rovers against Hearts is on BBC live.

:39:18.:42:43.

Right, enough talk about English football. Let's get back to the

:42:44.:42:49.

Scottish Cup and we can talk to Allan Preston, who was watching one

:42:50.:42:54.

of the matches this afternoon, St Johnstone against Stenhousemuir. At

:42:55.:42:59.

full-time and McDiarmid Park, 2-0, the 200 -- 2014 runners-up through

:43:00.:43:02.

to the last 16 with a comfortable victory, two goals in the first

:43:03.:43:06.

half, the first in the sixth minute, Blair Alston to the byline and his

:43:07.:43:09.

outswinging cross was met by Steven MacLean with a diving header from

:43:10.:43:13.

five yards, to put the Saints 1-0 up. 2-0 on 32 minutes, Steven

:43:14.:43:18.

MacLean with a lovely backheel into the path of Blair Alston and his 20

:43:19.:43:22.

yard deflected shot found the back of the net. Total domination from

:43:23.:43:27.

the Saints, they had chances, five, six, seven, Cummings had an effort,

:43:28.:43:31.

Swanson and Steven MacLean again, Shaughnessy with a couple of headers

:43:32.:43:34.

over but all credit to Stenhousemuir, they dug in, in the

:43:35.:43:40.

second half and kept it to two. League 1 Stenhousemuir out and let's

:43:41.:43:48.

find out how Alloa Athletic bail at -- bed this afternoon attended an

:43:49.:43:53.

firm in from the Championship. Let's welcome Jim Spence back to the show.

:43:54.:43:58.

It finished 2-3, nervous into the game which Dunfermline seem to be

:43:59.:44:01.

travelling in one direction, towards the fifth round, Nicky Clarke on 12

:44:02.:44:06.

minutes, Paul McMullen on 43 and Joe Cardle on 61 had given them what

:44:07.:44:09.

looked like an unassailable lead, 3-0 up but back came Alloa Athletic,

:44:10.:44:14.

on 67 minutes a fine goal from McCluskey and them off curled a shot

:44:15.:44:20.

which the keeper saved but they came scoring back -- storming back and

:44:21.:44:24.

scored with a minute to go. Then another fine save from the Alloa

:44:25.:44:27.

Athletic keeper as the game swung into end but Dunfermline progressed.

:44:28.:44:32.

Good result for Dunfermline and now we can hear from a former

:44:33.:44:35.

Dunfermline hero, Jim McIntyre. Now manager of Ross County, of course.

:44:36.:44:41.

He spoke after their 6-2 win over Dundee United, two Alasdair Lamont.

:44:42.:44:47.

It was an emphatic victory but it didn't always necessarily feel like

:44:48.:44:50.

it was going to be. No, I think in the second half, we have actually

:44:51.:44:55.

been a bit sloppy at times, you know, and made it hard that

:44:56.:44:58.

ourselves. I thought in the first off, some of the play was

:44:59.:45:02.

exceptional and we made two mistakes and United have punished us twice

:45:03.:45:06.

which then gives them a wee bit of belief that they can come back into

:45:07.:45:10.

the game. The second half, we knew they would come out and have a go

:45:11.:45:15.

and they certainly done that. But I thought defensively, we managed to

:45:16.:45:17.

deal with that. A lot of balls coming into the box. Scott has not

:45:18.:45:26.

had any real notable saves to make. But it was a real mixed bag from us

:45:27.:45:30.

today. We had some brilliant play, scored some great goals but we also

:45:31.:45:35.

made some really, you know, poor decisions, some basic mistakes that

:45:36.:45:42.

put us under pressure. Despite scoring six goals, Ross County not

:45:43.:45:45.

the top scorers of the day. That distinction belongs to Hibs, the cup

:45:46.:45:49.

holders were 8-1 winners against Bonnyrigg Rose and now we can hear

:45:50.:45:54.

from Neil Lennon. You must be delighted to get through because

:45:55.:45:57.

beforehand, you had been talking about this game potentially causing

:45:58.:46:02.

some problems. But 8-1 tells its own story. Yeah, a very good

:46:03.:46:07.

performance, the attitude was great. Just some sloppy moments in the

:46:08.:46:10.

first half. The second half was excellent. That will give the

:46:11.:46:15.

players a lift. Some players needed the game as well, and to get on the

:46:16.:46:19.

scoresheet, the likes of Keatings and Jason pops up with a couple as

:46:20.:46:24.

well but overall, I'm very pleased. Obviously the most important thing

:46:25.:46:27.

is we are in the next round. Keith, that is a bit harsh on Bonnyrigg

:46:28.:46:32.

Rose. Could they not have eased up a little bit? I think when you out

:46:33.:46:36.

there, you just play and keep going. It's fantastic result and expected,

:46:37.:46:42.

and they have taken care of that. Would you like to select your cup

:46:43.:46:47.

upset of the day? I know what it is going to be. There wasn't much

:46:48.:46:51.

romance in the cup, all the scores ended up being pretty much

:46:52.:46:56.
