The most recent Scottish Cup finalists will meet again in the fourth round of this season's competition after Dundee United were handed a home clash against Ross County.

United will open the defence of their trophy against a team they have beaten in their previous three domestic cup campaigns.

Peter Houston's men defeated County 3-0 at Hampden in May and clinched a 2-1 victory after extra-time at Dingwall in the Co-operative Insurance Cup in September.

Rangers have been handed a potentially difficult tie against in-form Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

Rangers needed Kenny Miller to complete a hat-trick after beating 10-man Killie 3-2 with the help of two penalties in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Saturday.

Celtic will face Berwick Rangers with the tie scheduled to be held at Shielfield Park.

Fourth round draw:

Aberdeen v East Fife

Dundee United v Ross County

Queen of the South v Brechin City or Annan Athletic

Montrose v Dunfermline Athletic

Greenock Morton v Airdrie United or Beith

Falkirk v Partick Thistle

Berwick Rangers v Celtic

East Stirlingshire v Buckie Thistle

Rangers v Kilmarnock

Hibernian v Ayr United

Stenhousemuir or Threave Rovers v Stranraer

Hamilton Academical v Alloa Athletic

St Mirren v Peterhead

Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Elgin City

Dundee v Motherwell

Heart of Midlothian v St Johnstone

Ties will be played on 8th and 9th January 2011
