Veteran Celtic midfielder Natalie Ross got the early breakthrough and was unlucky not to get a hat-trick and there were also two wonderful goals from Amy Gallacher, the first a brilliant free kick that found the postage stamp corner of the Ayr goals and the second demonstrated as much bravery and determination to hammer home while knowing a late challenge was coming her way.

Watch the highlights below and the draw is live on The Scottish Cup’s You Tube channel at 5.30pm.
