The Scottish Cup quarterfinal match between Rangers and Hibs will take place at a suspiciously quiet time as accusations of a Hampden conspiracy fade.

With Rangers facing a challenging away trip to Hibs in the last eight of the Scottish Cup, the talk of conspiracy theories surrounding the draw has quieted down across the city. Meanwhile, Celtic secured a home draw against Livingston, the bottom side in the Premiership, adding to the anticipation for the upcoming matches.

In another fixture, Championship side Greenock Morton, who overcame Motherwell, will host Hearts at home, while Aberdeen is set to face Kilmarnock in the final clash of the round.

The Scottish Cup quarter-final matches are scheduled to be played during the weekend of March 9th, promising exciting encounters and intense competition.

Despite the jokes about conspiracy theories surrounding the Scottish Cup draw, Rangers recognize that they face a tough challenge with their upcoming tie against Hibs. The previous encounter between the two sides resulted in a routine 3-0 victory for Rangers in January, but the upcoming cup clash promises to be an entertaining and competitive affair in Edinburgh.

Rangers advanced to the Quarter Final by defeating Ayr United 2-0 at Ibrox, with goals from Borna Barisic and Fabio Silva securing the win and silencing former Celtic captain Scott Brown, who now plays for Ayr United.

On the other hand, Hibs showcased their potential with an impressive 3-1 away win against Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Myziane Maolida, Martin Boyle, and Ellie Youan displayed the talent within the Hibs squad, while Aaron Doran managed a late consolation goal for Caley Thistle.

While Rangers manager Philippe Clement acknowledges the fans’ right to dream, he emphasizes the importance of maintaining focus on the immediate task at hand. Despite the fans’ aspirations of a legendary quadruple, Clement remains grounded and encourages his players to adopt a one-game-at-a-time mentality.

The Scottish Cup clash against Hibs has been postponed until next month, allowing Rangers to concentrate on upcoming fixtures without distractions. Clement acknowledges that dreaming is a natural part of being a fan and believes it’s essential for supporters to have aspirations, but he also stresses the importance of staying present and focused on the team’s objectives in the current moment.
