Rangers and Celtic will meet again in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals.

The Glasgow clubs were drawn together in Sunday's draw and will face up at Hampden on the weekend of April 16-17.

The pair met in last season's League Cup semi-finals when Celtic comfortably won 2-0 but Ladbrokes Championship leaders Rangers will go into the latest meeting with far more confidence following their 4-0 quarter-final victory over Dundee. Celtic beat Morton 3-0 yesterday.

Dundee United, who beat Ross County 3-2, will face the winners of the replay between Inverness and Hibernian in the other semi-final.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller insists they will not fear the Scottish champions.

And Miller believes that the players' faith in Mark Warburton's methods will give them the confidence to cause an upset.

The former Celtic player told Rangers' official website: "There was every chance we were going to get them at some point, and as we said after the game yesterday, we don't fear anyone.

"Whoever we drew was just going to be standing in the way of our goal which is to win the Scottish Cup, and I've said all along, we have to get past Celtic if we want to win it.

"It will be a tough game as all the games are, but I am fully confident if we go about the job in the way we know we can that we can get the right result.

"The manager has got us playing and has got us believing in the way we are playing, and that will never change no matter who we play."
