Accies beat Edinburgh City 5-0 at the weekend.

Brian Rice is excited by Hamilton's "fantastic" William Hill Scottish Cup draw against Rangers.

Accies' reward for beating Edinburgh City 5-0 at the weekend is a visit of the Glasgow giants in the fifth round next month.

Hamilton boss Rice said: "It is a fantastic draw for us, a really exciting draw.

"If you are going to draw the Old Firm, drawing at home is a bonus so I am really looking forward to it.

"There should be a good crowd, I imagine it will be on television so one to look forward to.

"It is the luck of the draw, it is who you get drawn against.

"We could have been away from home but we are not. So I am really looking forward to it."

Rice insists Saturday's win over Edinburgh City is "gone" as he turns his attention to the Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Jack Ross' Hibernian at Easter Road on Wednesday night.

He said: "This is a completely different game, different surroundings, different test for us. We know how difficult it will be, we understand that.

"I think I know what I am getting off the boys. I know I will get commitment, effort and we have that wee bit of quality and confidence.

"I have seen a wee bit of Hibs, I know Jack well. They have got good attacking players, they are a goal threat and I don't think you will see many games where Hibs don't score.

"We need to make sure we need to defend."
