THE Scottish Cup Sixth Round is set to take place this weekend - if the weather allows it. 

To get in the mood, we headed to the Scottish Football Museum at Hampden Park to learn more about the competition's history.

In this exclusive video, curator Richard McBrearty explains the stories behind some historic Scottish Cup objects including trophies, medals, match balls and jerseys.

The Hampden Riot, a spectacular somersault cup final goal, the rise of the New Firm and the 'explosion of football' all feature in Richard's fascinating talk. 

This weekend's quarter-finals will see Celtic host Morton, Aberdeen face Kilmarnock, Rangers welcome Falkirk to Ibrox and Hearts travel to Motherwell

However, severe weather warnings remain in place across the country which could yet impact on the games going ahead.
