The Scottish League Cup semi-final draw has thrown up two mouth-watering fixtures, with Rangers squaring off against Hearts and Hibernian facing Aberdeen in the other tie.

Michael Beale’s Gers breezed into the last-four stage of the competition for a third consecutive year with an emphatic 4-0 thrashing of Livingston as they took another major step towards getting their hands on the silverware for the first time in 12 years.

Hearts became the first team to book their place in the semi-finals after overcoming Kilmarnock 2-1 and Rugby Park on Tuesday night, with Gers loanee Alex Lowry netting a 92nd minute winner.

Rangers, Hibs and Aberdeen followed suit by punching their tickets for a trip to the national stadium after recording victories over fellow Premiership sides Livi, St Mirren and Ross County respectively.

Both semi-final ties are scheduled to take place on the weekend of November 4/5, with the final set for December 17.
