The conspiracy continues - Rangers have been given another home draw in the Scottish Cup, taking on Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

The game could see the return of Lee McCulloch, Kris Boyd and Steven Smith to Ibrox, which we're sure is something you've been eagerly anticipating ever since they left.

The games will take place on the weekend of the 6th of February.

Other highlights of the draw included Celtic cruelly getting yet another away game against, er, East Kilbride or Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale. Hibs, amusingly, drew Hearts at Tynecastle.

Overall, it's a good test for us. We should be beating Kilmarnock handily, and while the game against St Johnstone was one we might've won eight or nine times out of ten, Killie are far less able to pull off such an effective counter-attacking gameplan - Kris Boyd isn't exactly going to trouble our defenders for speed.

Mark Warburton has suggested that we have what it takes to win it, and a return to Europe next season could be a real possibility. Thrashing Killie would be a fine way to show that.
