Celtic to play Hearts in Scottish League Cup third round draw

Scottish Championship leaders Hearts have been handed a trip to Celtic Park in the Scottish League Cup third round draw.

The draw for the third round of the League Cup has also served up Dundee and Lanarkshire derbies.

The City of Discovery derby will take place at Tannadice while Motherwell make the short journey across the M74 to play Hamilton, days before they host Accies in the Scottish Premiership.

Meanwhile, the winners of the second-round clash between Rangers and Inverness will travel to Falkirk.

As well as the derbies, there are two other all-Premiership ties in the seeded draw - Kilmarnock host St Johnstone and Partick Thistle take on St Mirren at Firhill.

The games will take place on September 23-24 with Rangers meeting Inverness in the second round a week earlier on September 16 at Ibrox.
