The draw for the 2020/21 Scottish Cup Third Round took place at Hampden Park this morning.
Host Gordon Duncan was joined by former Rangers star Peter Lovenkrands to conduct proceedings.
The former Danish international lifted the Scottish Cup twice with the Ibrox side in consecutive seasons back in 2002 and 2003.
Looking back on his memories of the competition, Lovenkrands said: “The 2002 final actually came on television recently and I watched it with my daughter, it still gives me goosebumps to this day. It’s crazy that it is approaching 20 years ago now. I knew at the time how big it was, of course, but it isn’t until now when I still hear so many stories from fans all these years later that it truly sinks in that bit more.”
On the Third Round draw, he added: “No cup games are easy, Rangers drawing Cove Rangers at home is an interesting one to watch and anything can happen in knockout football. It will be a special day for Cove Rangers travelling to Ibrox of course and there are some very exciting ties in there. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Scottish Cup unfolds this season.”
45 teams went into the mix following a number of postponements, the 32 eventual winning teams will form the 16 fixtures in the Third Round.
The ties will be played on the weekend of 30/31 January.
