Scottish Cup quarterfinal draw voided by technical error

The draw for the quarterfinals of the Scottish Cup had to be conducted not once but twice on Monday night after a technical issue forced the whole thing to be restaged live on air.

Being broadcast live on television, the first tie between Dundee United and Celtic had already been drawn out before the home side for the second fixture, Dumbarton or Dundee, emerged from the pot.

However, as SFA president Alan McRae reached in to pull out the away side, the ball came undone in his hand.

Then, after an incredibly awkward delay that seemed to drag on for several minutes, the whole draw was voided and re-started.

Thankfully, draw host David Tanner was on hand to fully explain exactly what had gone wrong from a technical standpoint.

Glad we got that sorted out.
