Scottish champions Celtic will travel to Dundee in the fifth round of the William Hill Scottish Cup after being paired with Paul Hartley's side.

Holders St Johnstone have been handed a trip to Dumfries after drawing Queen of the South, while Rangers will meet Raith Rovers in the last 16 at Ibrox.

Non-league outfit Spartans' reward for beating Morton in the previous round is a home tie with either Berwick Rangers or Albion Rovers.

There is another all-Scottish Premiership tie, with Partick set to take on the winner of Tuesday's replay between Inverness and St Mirren at Firhill.

The other ties see Hibernian host Arbroath, Annan or Brechin travel to Falkirk and the victor from the Stranraer versus Dunfermline tie progress to a home clash with last year's beaten finalists Dundee United.

Pele 'lucid and stable'

Doctors say Pele is in good condition and will remain off kidney support treatment.

The Albert Einstein hospital says the 74-year-old Brazilian great was reevaluated on Monday and doctors decided not to put him back on the hemodialysis that had been needed to help support his only kidney.

The treatment was suspended on Sunday but doctors said it was possible that Pele would need the hemodialysis again depending on how his body responds.

The hospital says Pele remains in an intensive care unit but is "lucid" and "stable."

The three-time World Cup champion was hospitalized early last week after being diagnosed with a urinary tract infection that stemmed from a November 13 surgery to remove kidney stones.
