Celtic are set to host Greenock Morton in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals after a malfunction with the draw on Monday night saw them avoid a trip to Dundee United.

The Bhoys were initially handed an away day at Tannadice Park before one of the team balls opened unexpectedly, forcing the live draw on Sky Sports News to be restarted.   

Morton stunned Parkhead in 2013 when a penalty in extra time from Dougie Imrie knocked Celtic out of the League Cup’s third-round stage.
