After conducting the draw, Craig Gordon reflected on his memories of winning the trophy for the first time in 2006 against Gretna. 

He said: "I didn’t drop any balls doing the draw, which was the main thing. I was worried about messing it up but it went well and it’s great to kick off the competition, especially in its 150th year.

“I remember winning my first Scottish Cup back in 2006 and going to a penalty shoot-out against a team two divisions below in Gretna. It was a difficult afternoon, going all the way to penalties after a long, hard season but thankfully we managed to prevail. I managed to save one penalty and one went over the bar.

“It was more a sense of relief, winning that one when you’re expected to win. The fairytale was there for them and it was up to us to spoil that. That brings its own pressures and thankfully we managed to get it done in the end, but it was a bit too close for comfort."
