Aberdeen draw St Johnstone in the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup, while Hearts will take on Inverness.

Aberdeen will have to get past St Johnstone in order to face either Hearts or Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the final of the Scottish League Cup.

The remaining four clubs in the tournament discovered their semi-final opponents during the draw today, with Hearts receiving a home tie against Inverness.

The Premiership outfits secured victories over Motherwell, Morton, Dundee United and Hibernian respectively to reach the semi-final stage.

Aberdeen remain the most successful club in the League Cup having snatched the title five times, while Hearts have not clinched the trophy since the 1962-63 campaign.

If Inverness see off Hearts, they will be finalists for the first time, while St Johnstone have come away as runners-up twice in the competition.

The ties will be played on the weekend of February 1 and 2.
