St Johnstone will begin the defence of the League Cup with a trip to face Championship side Arbroath.
Callum Davidson’s men, who defeated Livingston in last year’s final, avoided the group stage thanks to their league position.

Like Saints, Dundee and Dundee United were seeded for the last-16, after cruising through their respective pools, with United also on the road against lower league opposition, Ayr United, and the Dark Blues given a home tie against Motherwell.
The draw handed Dunfermline a daunting trip to face Rangers, while Fife neighbours Raith Rovers will welcome Aberdeen to Kirkcaldy.
