Martyn Waghorn's aiming to go all the way to Hampden

Martyn Waghorn scored the winner for Rangers in their 2-1 William Hill Scottish Cup clash with Morton at Ibrox - then targeted another final appearance.

Rangers were handed a home quarter-final tie against the winners of the Dunfermline and Hamilton replay following their 1-1 draw at East End Park, and Waghorn hopes it is the next step to Hampden.

He said: "It's a positive draw, another home tie. It's one we have to go out there and win and another chance to progress in the cup.

"We want to move this club forward to win trophies and compete in finals.

"You come here to win things. That's what I want to do and what everyone here is aiming to achieve. It's important we are in the next round, but it is back to the league next week and hopefully we can continue off the back of the win today."

Holders Hibernian will host either Ayr or Clyde in the quarter-finals if they overcome rivals Hearts in a replay.

The Edinburgh derby finished goalless and the two sides are scheduled to meet again at Easter Road on February 22, with the reward for the winners a home tie against Championship strugglers Ayr or League Two Clyde.

Ayr and Clyde drew 1-1 and they will contest their replay at Broadwood Stadium on Tuesday night, when Dunfermline and Hamilton will also meet again.

Premiership champions Celtic are bidding to lift the trophy for a 37th time and they will continue their quest at home to St Mirren, who are currently bottom of the Championship.

The only all-Premiership tie sees a repeat of last weekend's league fixture between Aberdeen and Partick Thistle.
