Cops are set to pull the plug on a bid to schedule a potential powder-keg Scottish Cup clash between Aberdeen and Rangers on a Saturday night.

It’s believed the authorities are anxious about the potential for a repeat of the crowd trouble which shamed this fixture the last time it was selected for a Saturday night TV slot, more than 17 years ago back in January 2002.

On that night home fans spilled on to the pitch to confront Rangers supporters after Aberdeen striker Robbie Winters had been struck by a coin.

Premier Sport had hoped to cash in on the latest instalment of this fierce rivalry, which could come hot on the heals of a stormy 4-2 win for Rangers last week.

Record Sport can reveal the possible Pittodrie grudge match has been selected for the prime time evening slot by the SFA’s new broadcast partners Premier Sports.

Monday night’s draw set up the prospect of a mouth-watering re-run of last week’s top flight blockbuster between the two sides – so long as Steven Gerrard’s men can overcome Kilmarnock in a fifth round replay at Ibrox next week.

But they are now expected to agree to the wishes of the police.
