The quarter-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup take place this weekend, featuring five Premiership and three Championship teams.

Ahead of the crunch ties, here are five things to look out for…

1) Return of the Kane

Dundee striker Kane Hemmings returns to Ibrox on Saturday hoping his fine goalscoring form can help knock his old club out of the cup. Hammings spent a total of five years at Rangers making just nine appearances before spells at Cowdenbeath and Barnsley. Since returning north of the border with Dundee last year, the 23-year-old has found the net 18 times in all competitions, and was on target as recently as Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Can the Englishman come back to haunt his old club?

2) Payback for County?

Dundee United recorded an impressive 3-0 away win over Ross County in the Premiership at the weekend, and Dingwall will again play host to the sides on Saturday. The victory boosted United’s bid to avoid automatic relegation but Jim McIntyre’s team will be looking to avenge that defeat on Saturday and seal a place in the last four of the William Hill Scottish Cup. County will also be hoping to banish memories of their 2010 cup final defeat to the Arabs.

3) Can Morton do it again?

Greenock Morton recorded a famous win over Celtic in the League Cup in 2013 and will be hoping to create more history on Sunday in the Scottish Cup. Dougie Imrie’s penalty was enough to secure a 1-0 win – their first victory at Parkhead since 1971 and their first over Celtic since 1985. Morale at Morton will be high following their excellent 3-0 win over Championship challengers Hibernian at the weekend, but can they cause a cup upset on Sunday at Celtic Park?

4) Hibernian against the holders

It’s been 114 years since Hibernian last lifted the world’s oldest national trophy – the longest wait of any team left in this season’s competition. They went close to winning the competition in 2013, although suffered a 3-0 defeat to Celtic in the final. They host the most recent winners of the trophy left in the competition – holders Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

5) Derby dates?

Depending on the weekend’s results, we could see at least one derby match in the semi-finals. Dundee could meet Dundee United, Inverness Caledonian Thistle could be drawn against Ross County and Celtic could come up against rivals Rangers.  The semi-finals will be played on the weekend of 16/17 April.
