Deacon Blue lead singer Ricky Ross will help conduct the draw for the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final draw immediately after Sunday’s final sixth round tie between Dundee United and Celtic at Tannadice

The Dundee United fan will be drawing out teams alongside Scottish FA President Campbell Ogilvie and Brian McColgan from competition sponsors William Hill.

Speaking to the Scottish FA, Ricky said: "I’m really excited to make the draw. I never made it as a professional football player so this is the closest I’ll get!

"This is our best chance out of the three games we have coming up against Celtic. It will be tough but St Johnstone went to Celtic Park and won during the week so you never know.

"1994 was very emotional and I went to the 2010 cup final with my wee boy so that was great. They were both really great memorable finals."

There are four Sixth round ties taking place this weekend, starting with Queen of the South v Falkirk later this evening.
