Hibs will face Aberdeen in the semi-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The holders, 3-1 victors over Ayr United in the quarter-finals yesterday, have been drawn to take on Derek McInnes’ side at Hampden on the weekend of April 22-23.

The other tie – which will also be played at the national stadium – sees Celtic line up against Old Firm rivals Rangers.

Hibs beat Aberdeen last season on their way to the League Cup final, goals by Jason Cummings and Dominique Malonga sealing a 2-0 third-round win at Easter Road.

The teams’ last meeting in the Scottish Cup came in 2013 when Gary Deegan struck to give Pat Fenlon’s side a 1-0 home victory to reach the quarter-finals.

The previous season, Hibs overcame the Dons at the semi-final stage, Garry O’Connor and Leigh Griffiths scoring in a 2-1 success at Hampden.
