    Betfred Cup - Quarter Finals
    Aberdeen      v.   St. Johnstone
    Celtic     v.   Alloa Athletic
    Greenock Morton   v.  Dundee United
    Rangers     v.   QOS
     
    This will be the first time Alloa Athletic have played Celtic at Parkhead since season 1982/83, when they met after the sides were drawn together in a Group Section along with Arbroath and Dunfermline Athletic. Alloa lost the home game 5-0 at Recreation Park, Stuart Munro unfortunately having his penalty saved saved on the evening. However in the 2nd Group match at Parkhead, The Wasps gave a very good account of themselves and silenced the home crowd when Bobby Gray scored for The Wasps from a free kick, at half-time the score was still 1-1, however the turning point in this match was when Alloa winger Drew Paterson suffered a horrible head knock, which unfortunatley was latterly to end his playing career.
     
    Speaking after tonight's draw, Alloa Athletic Chairman, Mike Mulraney said "Looking forward to the next round, first time at Celtic Park, as Chairman of the club"
