Old Firm kept apart in cup draw

Scottish League Cup

The Old Firm have been kept apart in the draw for the semi-finals of the Co-operative Insurance Cup.

Holders Rangers will line up against Falkirk, while Celtic face Dundee United for a place in the final.

The draw took place at the Scottish Parliament, where last year the Presiding Officer Alex Fergusson miscalled the ties.

The ties will be played on 27 and 28 January at Hampden, with the final taking place on 15 March.

There could be a repeat of last season's final, which Rangers won on penalties after Kris Boyd twice equalised against United in a 2-2 draw.

United last won the tournament in 1981 when they beat city rivals Dundee to retain the silverware.

Falkirk are in their second semi-final in three years having lost 3-0 to Kilmarnock at Fir Park in their previous encounter.
