Winning the Scottish Cup, reaching that final, making that Johnny. It
is a lot more than just work, it is about crossing the finish line, you
need passion, determination and drive to get over that line. This
fourth round, let them play. A massive cut Cup shock! Rangers
surely into the fifth round. Goal, what an equaliser from Queen of the
South! Aberdeen hoping to draw a line in their long wait in the Cup
wilderness. For the Cup holders, Celtic, out to defend the trophy
they have one for a record 36 times. This is where the line will be
drawn, but who will cross that finish line?
We draw the line under the wino -- under the foreground, and you are in
the right place you want goals. Today, it was above average. And we
have two above average pundits, Billy Dodds and Pat Nevin. Partick
Thistle against Aberdeen later, but first the clash against two Scottish
Cup winners. It is 5-star Hearts! Winning the
Scottish Cup! Suddenly, the SPL champions move a
step closer to the double! It is party time for Celtic! The Scottish
Cup will be there as! Hearts at Celtic at Tynecastle
Stadium. Commentary comes from Billy dogs -- Billy Dodds and Liam McLeod.
The standard type of this fourth round. Parts of Midlothian -- heart
of Midlothian, the Cup run with boost them, but also provide them
with a financial return. The problem with them is up against a Hearts
hunting, and since their defeat at the hands of Hearts in the
semifinals the season before last, they have countered to be each time
they have come here, scoring 11 in just three games.
The players could not ask for better conditions. That edge looking good,
this guy is above still blue. -- the pitch looking good. And there will
be a minute silence observed as a mark of respect for those who lost
their lives and those who remain injured in hospital following the
horrific helicopter crash on Stockwell Street in Glasgow on
Friday evening. Taking some time out in silence.
WHISTLE. CHEERING. Gary Locke has a small squad to
choose from, the guys talking about that, but starting David Smith on
the right, Ryan Stevenson supporting Callum Paterson. Jamie MacDonald in
gold is the only one who started the 2012 Scottish Cup final. -- in goal.
The Israeli Nir Biton coming in. Stokes has scored against Hearts
including in September, with Joe Ledley also restored.
There is no one over the age of 20 on the Hearts bench. The Celtic
striker from Finland, with two golds, one on his debut year. The
referee is Willie Collum, taking charge of last season's final, as
Celtic took care of Hibernian. Positive news on Friday in the
knitting from here. The company voluntary agreement was
conditionally agreed for Hearts. Still work to be done with a meeting
in Lithuania in January. It seems holding the keys to their future.
But the fact that Hearts could have been closed on Friday, it is a
massive, major step in the right direction. Billy dogs, this is
normally a keenly fought contest? Absolutely no doubt, never roll
Hearts out, especially with this Tynecastle atmosphere, but quality
opponents with Celtic, and beaten opponents in the league. But Albion
Rovers knocking out opponents yesterday. Hearts will make it tough
for Celtic. McCarty doing well there. -- McHattie. Celtic need to
bounce back, and think about getting out of the Scottish Cup, after their
continental adventure came to an abrupt end on Wednesday. -- it would
be an thinkable to go out of the Scottish Cup. I come looking at
Celtic's permission, but they would go with a 4-4 -1, but a diamond in
the field Mulgrew dropping off, with Brown in plain of them -- play in
front of them. Comments gives a wonderful goal for Celtic. Hearts
ripped open here in the opening few minutes. Celtic take a big step
towards the fifth round already. -- Kris Commons gives a wonderful goal.
The start that Hearts dreaded, but brilliant playing from Kris Commons.
Hearts not in a bad position, but Celtic works it, passes it about.
Ledley into Kris Commons. Still other to do, but he fires it right
into that far corner, wonder. For Celtic. -- a wonderful start for
Celtic. Celtic might have had a bad hangover
after Tuesday. The good thing for Hearts, despite losing the early
goal, not looking too rocky. They have created a couple of other
opportunities. Apologising there,
through some dodgers there. Just does not get it on target.
A Celtic free kick. They are taking it quickly. Kris Commons making it
two. Celtic take out their insurance policy in the capital. It is Kris
Commons with a double. It is 2-0 to Celtic. Game over already? You would
think so. Experience shows. Maybe someone talking to them. Commons was
to the right. Only six or seven yard dark from Kris Commons, but when he
gets there, he is showing the left boot. But Hearts completely switch
off all stop --. Kris Commons into double figures for the season.
That would have been some way to get the hat-trick for Kris Commons. It
is movement getting himself between centre half and right full-back.
Once he gets this full-back, you can see the awareness, where McDonald
is. A decent save from him. Dundee United manager, and assistant
manager coach, two former Celtic players, of course.
Mulgrew was trying to play in Stokes. Growing making it three, and
Celtic surely now through to the fifth round! Just beyond the
half-hour mark at Tynecastle. It is the Celtic captain, Scott Brown, and
it is 3-0 to the holders. It is that area. From stalks, -- Stokes. That
movement is killing Hearts. Even though McGee is young, he has to be
more aware. He hits the shot, deflected into the post from Joe
Ledley, then it falls to the ones that Hearts fans did not wanted to
fall to, Scott Brown, with the easiest of tap ins, and it really is
game over, you would think. We do not want this to be a
trouncing. But it looks to be that way. Just a little tight, giving go
again, gets its debt, probably from Stokes, just wraps the food around
it. That is the deepest Kris Commons has
been in play today. An early ball, and the fourth
arrives! Joe Ledley, who scored in last season's final, ensures that
Celtic are taking a Sunday stroll down easy Street in this fourth
round tie. 4-0, not even have time. Working from left-to-right, out to
Nir Biton. The fullbacks going forward. What a ball that was. A
forward thinking midfielder, or forward, getting a tap in, and Joe
Ledley does exactly that. Brilliant again from Celtic. What a ball!
The Celtic fans will be absolutely loving this. As a Hearts fan in
particular, it is tough viewing. And there was the fifth, and what affect
it was from Mikael Lustig, an absolute stunner, putting Hearts to
the sword! Hearts were caught on the park there, a few coming forward, we
talked about that, but Mikael Lustig breaks forward into the centre area,
cuts in the central area, with Stokes making the run, but not using
him, hitting it from 25 yards, and it flies over McDonald. A great
side, isn't it? -- great strike. You feel for Hearts, 5-0 down, young
manager, we do they go from here? -- where do they go? Some great play
there from Jamie Walker. Not even getting the bonus of a consolation.
He keeps his clean sheet. A great touch from Fraser Forster. A fine
distinctive save. Walker again, positive one, gets through. He
wanted a penalty, but good effort from him.
And it is half-time and, Hearts will be gutted that it is not full time,
they want this game over and done with. We have an under believable --
we have an unbelievable scored line of 5-0 to Celtic. And that is Brad
Mackay, defender, replacing David Smith, who is playing on the right
of midfield in that first half. We shall get to Billy's. In a second.
-- we shall get to Billy's thinking on that in a second. The biggest
loss for Hearts was a 7-0 lost on New Year's Day 1973 against
Hibernian, a at Tynecastle. They will look to salvage some pride
from proceedings tonight. Try to work it back to the big Dutch
man, who likes to get forward when he can. How does it look Hearts are
going? Just trying that defensive mid-field.
To set and protect and try and get a hold of the Celtic movement.
Commons - Stokes comes back to Ledley, who fires it across. Back to
Commons agains. It is a penalty kick and Celtic too have the chance for a
sixth. You with bet Commons will try and find this ball. He'll want the
hat trick. Just rubbing it in, isn't it? We'll get a look at it. Ledley
could have had the strike. Back to Commons. I cannot believe
that, to be honest. His hands are down - it is not a natural... It
could be Commons' day. Celtic looking for a sixth.
And they have it! And he has his hat trick!
That's clinical from Commons. Don't expect anything else with the day
he's having. Even when MacDonald goes the right way, there's no
chance he's stopping that. Wonderful from Commons, right into the bottom
corner. And they got this penalty because of
this handball from Wilson. What can Wilson do there? He's tried to get
his hand behind his back. Commons is only two yards away.
Celtic are winning 6-0. But individually you have to look at
that goal. It is a poor, poor decision. How hearts heart -- Hearts
would love to have that man. He's scored twice in the final against
Hibs. He's a legend, in his first spell, let alone the second. He
scored in the 2006 time as well on penalties. Could have made a
difference today? No! Hamill! Almost. A good strike. We talked
about the this. Gets his shot away. MacDonald.
Stokes clipping it in. Yes - seven!
Hearts are heading just now for a record defeat, it seems. Brown
leathers home Celtic's seventh. It is seventh heaven for the holders!
That was a good save from MacDonald, right away - it comes through, was
it, I think McKay's legs. Brown has the strike. Takes the deflection.
MacDonald had gone the wrong way. Going for you, going for you - a
decent strike. Good technique from Brown. And the deflection. Gets them
the seventh. Boerrigter comes on to replace Commons. List on the the
ovation this man is about to receive. Quite rightly so.
Gets it back from Stokes. It has found Boerrigter. Celtic
corner. That deflection nearly got him that
hat trick. A lovely cross. Knocked down by Boerrigter. Celtic's eighth
nearly. He will be... Ledley. And now
Ambrose. And there is the final whistle.
Celtic celebrate a magnificent victory and a magnificent victory to
celebrate Neil Lennon's 200th game in charge of the club. From the
third minute they did not look back. Commons completed his hat trick.
Scott Brown got the third on 32. Ledley scored the fourth. A stun
stunner right on half time made it 5-0 before the interval. Commons
adding the sixth just shy of the hour mark, before Brown volleyed
home after a deflection to make it seven.
Scott Brown goes up the tunnel. Two goals himself today. He's got his
eye on the double himself this season. It finished incredibly here
at Tynecastle. Is that about as close to perfection
as you could have asked for this afternoon? It is the best
performance I've had in my time as manager. You always look for me, but
in terms of Utopia it is as good as it gets. It is as we've tried to
build this team. That is the way we want them to play and the way we
want Celtic team to play. It was everything I could have asked for.
Is that an afternoon to forget or to learn a hard lesson from? We have to
get it out of the system as quickly as possible. There is a lot to learn
from it. We did miss out in the game. We lost a poor goal and you
know sometimes you have to hold your hands up. We're a young side, but we
got out-classed today. The players around me make me the player I am.
Without being slipped in from Charley and the others I am useless,
but I am blessed with playing with such a good group of players. Did
you have the shooting boots on today? It has been a long time since
I last scored. Take them as they come. It is the hardest I have
scored ever. A tap in and a deflection for the second. I'll take
them all. A brilliant performance today. Great
reaction following the European disappointment. Fulsome praise from
Neil Lennon as well - it is massive praise when you consider some of the
praise they've had during that time. To what extent were Celtic excellent
and Hearts were awful? We have to analyse it like that. Celtic were
brilliant. They were immense. They can only beat what is put in front
of you. Celtic did that - their movement, their interchanging and
you know, we have to look at it as well and say there was some poor
defending from Hearts as well. Take nothing away from Celtic. They were
clinical on the day. How impressed were you - especially given their
disapointment mid-week? It is part of it. I think there's a reaction
from the Celtic players that is what Neil Lennon wanted. The quick
passing, good appreciation of the passes as well. And also the
movement was great right from the first minute. They adapted to the
new adapted system. They were playing, really, really well. From
the start, it was great. We will talk about how poor Hearts were and
reasons for. That but take nothing away from the Celtic performance.
Neil Lennon is right to say it was a brilliant display. Probably no
Celtic player reacted better than Commons, who was pretty much
outstanding throughout the afternoon. The passing and the
movement was great. I mentioned before there. It is a great finish.
It is a difficult angle. Have a look here in the centre of the pitch. The
normal thing is to go towards the ball, but no, he goes intelligently
wide, to where the space is. The full back does help by diving in
there. That is intelligent movement. Not the obvious place to go.
The finish is superb. Everything they had done was superb. You see
here again we could talk about the defending. He's just - it is an
eight-yard run. He's in and he's run for it and he's put it in the far
corner. So much game intelligence. Just head down there, but he knows
where the goalkeeper is. He seals his day - it was a fine day for him
with that penalty on the side net. He's got so much quality. He was
great. At times Celtic were unstoppable.
We'll talk more about that shortly. In terms of Hearts, how culpable
were they in their own downfall A full circumstance wl the back to the
ball. Maybe Wilson could come across. With the ball where it was
rolled, it was rolled and they will show them this. Materially... This
is a big problem. They played a high line a lot of the time. As well,
play a high line and you leave a lot of space for a guy on the ball. They
will always cause problems. It's not obvious that is what the initial
problem is. He's scratching his head a little bit there. He'll know if
you play have the high line, get tight every time with the
mid-fielders. If you don't, they will destroy defence. Uncomfortable
for Hearts' fans. I don't think we'll have many Hearts' viewers
tonight, it is fair to say. Mesmerising. It was not the
interchanging and the mid-field to the front ones. It was the - this
goal sealed it for me. That's a ball that You love on the
end of it. It is lovely. But this is another one. Here is your problem
with the defence. Now they are scared to go out because they are
caught behind it. You cannot give that much space and
when you do, someone eventually has to go and nobody goes. Again it is
just this naivety they have got. This inexperience they've got. They
didn't know whether to come or go. Sometimes it was Commons, sometimes
it was Stokes coming back there as well. They had no idea who to pick
up. Celtic did not need a helping hand today, but they got it in the
second half. You were very clear about your thoughts about this
penalty. I don't suppose it has changed much. Cruel! As I said - and
I stand by it - if we analyse Hearts and Celtic. Of look at the picture -
eight yards away. Look at Wilson' arm, it is behind his back. It is
cruel when you are 5-0 down. Has to be deliberate handball. Be
serious... That is nowhere near deliberate. There's a psychological
difference between six and seven. One thing about Hearts, they did
keep on trying - particularly in that second half. By this point,
Celtic have not taken their foot off the gas, but they are not playing as
well. They are still playing well enough to get another couple of
goals. Scott Brown becoming a goal machine, it seems. It seems cruel to
talk in this way about Hearts, given all the problems they obviously have
in the league and off the field - it is well documented - but that result
has to be crushing in terms of their morale, you would imagine. Next
weekend they are away to Dundee united in the Scottish premiership.
How do they bounce back from this? It will be tough. You know, they
have got a lot to fight for. They are fighting that relegation period.
The festive period is coming up. Down to six points. They'll have toy
wait that. They will be wiping it with Lock. You have to teach young
lads. He'll tell them what he wanted from them. If they do that and get
it out of their system and look forward to that relegation battle,
then that is a way forward. I've had a 7-0 myself. It is how you
fight back. A tough day. The fourth round of the
Scottish Cup is a special time, for some clubs, et cetera specially
those in the lower echelons. Sometimes, just sometimes we catch
that illusive glimpse of the romance of the cup.
Due to fire damage, Albion Rovers moved there match against Motherwell
to New Douglas Park. They were vastly outnumbered by their
Premiership opponents, and the chance for a class at shop, when
Gary Phillips got his chance and did not miss. -- classic shock. It was
almost cut short, but a missed chance, and it meant Albion Rovers
have Dell Scottish Cup giant-killing scalp. A real moment to savour for
the club where success has never come easy. It has to be the best,
cannot compare it to anything, scoring a goal and a great Cup like
that. The Stranraer captain led his side
out at Clyde, after working through the night at the Glasgow helicopter
crash. Thoughts go out to the friends, relatives and staff. A
moment of silence, making you reflect, and I suppose it is things
into perspective. We are still in the heart, probably lucky, I thought
Clyde came out of the straps -- came out of the traps quickly. The second
half, we were definitely better. A stunning free kick from Lee Currie
looked like it might set the wee Rangers on their way, but Dumbarton
bounce back, on the way to a 3-1 victory.
Since taking over as Alloa manager, he is hotly tipped to take over the
vacant managers job at Inverness. He masterminded their Cup progress.
Graeme Holmes amongst the goals for Alloa, Graham Weir for Stirling
Albion, but merely a consolation. Another league one side through to
the last 16, Stenhousemuir progressing at the expense of
Highland League said Fraserburgh. Ross McNeil have the double as
Stenhousemuir ran out 3-0 winners. A crackling, dear I see it, Stormy
Angus derby, three red cards, two red cards, we can sell you --
Brechin City 1-0 in front, but Martyn Fotheringham equalised,
sending them into Cup replay fever. Dunfermline athletic, in light blue,
at Somerset Park, taking the lead through Andy Geggan. But 1-1 is
hybrid with the news, Kevin Kyle with the knock-down, and Michael
Donald with the equaliser. At the Falkirk Stadium, David
McCracken's sending-off would be pivotal, as Rangers eventually find
a route into the next round. The biggest moment of the game so far,
and it is saved, Nicky Law with the effort, and it goes into the net,
but the offside flag is up on the near side. Nicky Law puts Rangers
surely into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup! They are definitely
through now, David Templeton, in second-half stoppage time!
No doubt, Albion Rovers, what an incredible result from them, and
great to get that kind of shock. What will it mean for the club like
Albion Rovers to put out Motherwell? Absolutely massive, David Ward
there, Goodlad, I did my badges with him. He works away at small clubs
and then gets his reward. It is hard graft working with small clubs, but
they will enjoy every moment. You can just be it. It is so much joy
for them. Seemed like an emotional moment for him as the manager, but
the Gary Phillips, personal trainer, going back to the scene of his glory
tomorrow, it must be magic. It must be magic. A fantastic moment for
them. What does it mean to Albion Rovers? Talk to the bank manager.
That is for sure. After a good start to the season, party this all have
gone off the boil, in fact losing their last four matches, one of
which was a 4-0 defeat to Aberdeen, facing them today. -- Partick
Thistle have gone off the boil. It is advantage Aberdeen. They have
scored the oven and conceded nine in two league meetings. If you are
looking for or mince, when the teams have met, Aberdeen have lifted the
trophy. Looking for omens. Thistle beset by problems. Some changes by
Aberdeen, bringing back Barry Robson in the middle of the park. And Gregg
Wylde replacing an injured Jonny Hayes on the wing. The match referee
is Bobby Madden. A decent sized crowd. Inside Firhill for this
match. And we are underway. Ballot -- Balatoni under some
pressure there. Oswald in charge of the intervention.
Throw well dealt with by Balatoni. The first corner kick of the match
goes Aberdeen's way. Barry Robson to deliver this one. We will know what
he is capable of in terms of delivery. That wand of a left foot.
Thistle have to be on their guard here. Aberdeen have the lead, Andrew
Considine, inside five min! -- minutes! It has put Derek McInnes'
side in front. Terrific delivery from Barry Robson, as we have come
to expect. Considine lost his marker and hit it emphatically past Scott
Fox. The early advantage goes Aberdeen's way. Just the start they
would have wanted. Just the start Partick Thistle must have been
dreading. Aberdeen enjoying plenty of
possession. Bobby Madden had a look at that,
nothing given, though. Peter Pawlett with the effort, and a
brilliant save by Scott Fox. Still in play, as Calvin Zola tries to
pick up the pieces. Really good goalkeeping by Scott Fox, who found
himself off his line. Peter Pawlett with the effort. And a brilliant
save by Scott Fox. A deflection and Scott Fox again.
Alert enough to push that one away. Kicked in by Gregg Wylde. A wicked
deflection. A chance for Gregg Wylde. And a wild
shot off target. That should have been the second for Aberdeen. Wylde
was clear of the Thistle defence. He shot and blazed well off target.
Piccolo claiming he was court by Calvin Zola in that match up.
Zola wins it, and should have scored. Just a foot too high. Again,
it was too easy for Zola to win it. Does well to find this space, in
fairness. It was Russell Anderson in the end
getting it behind for a corner. Again, that could have been so much
more for Partick Thistle. And the half-time whistle sounds,
with Aberdeen utterly dominant, a goal in the fifth minute from Andrew
Considine. It is 1-0 to Aberdeen. Partick Thistle really need to
improve on that first half showing. No shots on target in the opening
period. They really need to be seen as more of an attacking force. In
this second half, as Bobby Madden gets us back underway.
Thistle have a bit of work to do if they are to progress to the last
extreme. -- last 16. Michael Hector of doing the
defending there. Shapes to shoot, pushed away by Langfield. A good
effort from Kyle Higginbotham. Langfield, who has had nothing to do
all afternoon, manages to keep that one out. Thistle's first shot on
target. Partick Thistle now looking for an
equaliser. That is not too far away from Elliott. That was a really good
effort. And Josh looking to tie that one up.
A lovely back healed. -- heel. Niall McGinn goes down. Bobby Madden
shakes the finger and says no penalty. This could have been game
over. And certainly barged down by Piccolo there. He was trying to get
in between him and Osbourne. Partick Thistle will have to find something
special. Something they have not produced.
Aberdeen looked likely to score there. So close to a second.
Eventually, Thistle smashed it clear. It was a stunning strike from
Aberdeen's top goal-scorer. It rattled back off the upright.
Archibald's men are heading out the competition unless they can find
something in these dying seconds. They just cannot get hold of the
ball. And it was Osbourne all the way up
there, trying to force it home. But the full-back was denied. He was
denied at the near post. A corner comes own, not too far away, but it
was left to lead, it seems, to start piling bodies and shots in on goal.
Only seconds remaining. And it is all over. It is Aberdeen
who progress, thanks to Andrew Considine's fifth minute header. In
truth, Partick Thistle drop out of the Scottish Cup with a whimper,
Aberdeen progress to the last 16 of the William Hill Scottish Kip,
winning it here one - zero. -- Scottish Cup. They made it difficult
for us, as we expected. It was all about getting through today. We've
played better than we have in the second half. But a quality one as a
game. We're just grateful that the opportunities that we did score
under didn't come back and bite us A good victory for us. The first half
I don't think we threatened them enough. We got closer, which he
didn't do well enough in the first half. I thought we might get
something at the end. Having one goal - it's not very safe. Managed
to block it. It was quite an open game, you know. It was like we have
a chance, they have a chance, sort of thing, the whole game. It was not
very safe. We plugged away. Stat time. Before today's game,
Aberdeen had knocked Partick Thistle out six times. On three occasions
Aberdeen have gone on to win the Scottish Cup. Today potentially a
good omen for Aberdeen. It was a fantastic start. The marking was not
good enough. A decent bender - had a lot of
power. Well done, he attacks it. But in the end the defending is not good
enough. They changed it for this - changed a different marker. At that
point it is too late. They never after that got back into the game.
Good defending. Not the best defending. Partick
Thistle have lost three times to Aberdeen this season. Partick did
have their chances in this game. They had been a bit toothless at
times and once again today. It is the story of the season - they play
lovely football. For me, I really enjoyed watching
them, genuinely up to the 18-yard line. Then after that, the finishing
has not been great. Just the final ball - they played it to well,
mid-field to front and you wonder why when they get up to this area,
when they are coming, there are players getting up there to support
and they might get on the end of that, but that's been the problem -
the finishing, particularly at home - the lig ga believe and then
obviously the final ball there and that starts to affect your
confidence. A wee bit more clinical. It was such a promising start. How
do they get their mo Joe back? There -- mojo back? They have lost 3-0 and
on the odd occasion, but they have to make sure they get the box - the
guy on the ball will be clinical and more decisive. It may work because
their football is good. They are losing confidence each week they do
that. There is not pressure on them to get a striker. They have to look
over the period of the season and say they've done all right. Do you
think Aberdeen should have won by a more convincing score line? Quite
often they were long shots. The keeper was doing well here. They
actually found themselves in a poor position to start with. He got
himself back. In the end, you think if anybody is going to score here,
particularly the first half - which wasn't bad, Derek was saying he
thought the second half was frantic. I think that is being polite about
it. I don't think it was any good. There was no passing. Any chances
that were coming up were genuinely come from the Aberdeen players. This
was the best one. They work it well and it's an excellent strike from
McGinn. Could this be Aberdeen's year? We have said it for a long
time. They've got themselves well on in two Cup competitions. Doing OK in
the league. The Dons fans have been saying that for a lot of years now.
The Aberdeen fans would abouts lightly love it. -- absolutely love
it. Now a round up of the remaining
games. The sunset on St Mirren's hope of
maintaining the League Cup when they lost back in August. They got off to
the perfect start as they aim for revenge.
A header from Naismith. Newton deflected.
A teasing ball. Back to Russell.
Off the post and in. It is clever, on the Riley - that is
even better. Thompson!
Great move down the left-hand side as Thompson tucks it home!
Ful A power failure at a substation meant the second half in Inverness
was delayed by over 30 minutes. When the match did get back under way it
was the home side who cruised through to the last 16.
McKay with his first of the afternoon. He was not finished for
the day. Doran setting up McKay for his 13th
goal of the season. Another another striker in demand
set St Johnstone on their way through.
The trip north is one that butch butch butch knows well. -- Terry
Butcher knows well. After two weeks in the job he's beginning to create
history. This was their first ever victory
against Ross County. The break through for Hibs.
And a flashing header from Lukinson. Handling's control.
A great run. Down he goes! And it's going to be a yellow card.
It is his second and he's off. The drama was far from over.
The substitute was replaced by Terry Butcher for tactical reasons.
Terry's word and point were ringing in his ears.
It is disappointing when that happens. Ross is a key player for us
and one we like. This week's action began at Tannadice and Kilmarnock
look looked in place for an upset. A strike from Johnson put the visitors
2-1 up. Not for the first time this season United's youngsters bounced
back and this rounded off the scoring for Kilmarnock. This
weekend's what happened next question. Look away if you are from
the blue half of Dundee! Only ir irirknows what -- only Irvine knows
what went wrong. You are a coach of Queen of the South.
Listen, we played well. We were unlucky. St Mirren had their
chances. They started the first half well. We fought back. A good
equaliser here and the second half as well.
They could have killed off the game, but we had chances to win it as
well. We were disappointed we didn't get through. Looking forward to the
replay. It was a really good cup tie yesterday. Let's talk of goals of
the round. Let's start with this. This is Lustig.
He's absolutely nailed that one. A great goal. Helped by the defenders
falling off a bit. A bit of space. This is Graham Weir. How do you rate
this? Spectacular. You have to get the technique absolutely right. And
Chris Johnston here. His wrong-foot, as it were.
He's time to think about the top corner - an absolute beauty. Which
was your favourite? Listen, all three are favourite. Chris Johnston
because it is the wrong-foot, right in the top corner. Brilliant! I
think the technique by Graham Weir is fantastic. To be honest if you
ask me in five minutes' time I will probably say Lustig. We have covered
them all. The fifth round draw will take place tomorrow.
These are the steam teams that will be -- these are the teams that will
be in the pot. As many League One sides as premier ship sides. That is
the romance of the Cup. If anybody is going to draw an old firm, it
could be Miller. It could be fate. Maybe that is why they choose him!
