COMMENTATOR: This could be something quite sensational! Right out of the
top drawer. The shot is an absolute beauty! Oh yes! It's unbelievable!
Unbelievable. What a finish. Time to hear Rose. It is not a dream, it is
reality! -- heroes. STUDIO: We've got all the goals from
yesterday. A very good evening. It's day two of
the William Hill 's Scottish Cup fourth round weekend. So much to get
through this evening. Pat Nevin and Scott McDonald are poised and ready.
Could Albion Rovers produced one of the greatest Scottish Cup shocks of
all time against Celtic? Beside a huge favourite at the Excelsior
Stadium. COMMENTATOR: This is about as close as it gets to David and
Goliath. Celtic got a run of 18 successive wins domestically, head
and shoulders above Albion Rovers, seventh in League 1. It shouldn't
really be a contest. Don't tell that to Rovers, they won their last two
games and beat Queen of the South to get here. They look to cause a shock
of seismic proportions. Celtic's last game was at Rangers. A return
from injury for Kieran Tierney after an absence of three months and only
his second game of the season for Boyota. That's a good save from
Stewart. The first time he's been called into action. He shows he is
up to the test, Armstrong. Forward comes Celtic on the counterattack.
Scott Sinclair with a bit more room... Here he is on the edge of
the box. Dembele couldn't take it in his stride. It might have been in
for the opener. A lovely return pass. He was onside but he couldn't
take control of the ball, Sinclair. Here is Dembele now, the Sinclair. A
good save from Stewart. High up into the air, still. A goalkick,
eventually. This was a chance, Dembele into the feet of thing
Claire. That is a really good save from Stewart. Tierney is the
Sinclair, keep on moving. He's lost none of his sharpness in the time
he's been out. A real chance. What a fantastic goal from Scott Sinclair.
It's going to take something special to break through the Albion Rovers
defence. Scott Sinclair has provided that. With half an hour gone, Celtic
finally hit the front. It's Scott Sinclair's 13th goal this season. He
found room and that is just about perfect from Scott Sinclair. No
stopping that one. Celtic, who are looking for their first domestic
treble since 2001 take a step closer to advancing in the Scottish Cup.
Albion Rovers have stuck it out for half an hour but they can do nothing
about that. Feeding it into the feet of Armstrong. Gets it back once more
to the Celtic captain. Closed down by Ferry.. The flag is up, it's a
fine finish from Sinclair but the offside flag is up. But would have
been a good goal. The past is was excellent. The run was very good.
Half a yard offside. The assistant getting it right.
Lustig uses pays to get past. He's done brilliantly, Sinclair. Forrest
gets the shot away, another good save from Stewart. Three really good
saves from Stewart, now. Forrest did well to written. -- to gather it in.
Quickly off his line and rolling the ball out to Scott Sinclair who puts
the afterburners on, and Jets forwards. Into the feet of Dembele.
Armstrong for Forrest, just behind Forrest. That's only a whisker away
from Celtic's second goal. Frustration the Stewart Armstrong.
Whipping the ball towards the far post. Stewart beaten on that
occasion. Just over from Armstrong. It's a decent effort. Gamboa was in
an advanced position, lovely turn but drags the shot just a couple of
yards wide. There is an interested onlooker.
Forrest trying to take on Turnbull. Got the space for the cross. Again
Dembele meeting with a head. Once more, his effort is off target. If
he gives him chances like this, he's going to take one sooner or later.
Stewart on that occasion is untroubled. Dembele... It's a decent
shot but a good save again from Ross Stewart on his near post. It have
been disappointed to be beaten from that angle. The keeper got plenty
behind it. Karl McGregor, a chance to come forward. It's a deep cross.
Off the crossbar, how unlucky. Almost a second Celtic goal. Boyota
close to doubling Celtic's advantage. They don't come much
closer than that. Back to Sinclair again on the
left-hand side Celtic. Conflict between the legs and cleared off the
line. To the dismay of Simunovic, Albion Rovers had a man on the line.
The keeper out. Roberts, probably the last man
Albion wanted to see coming on. Into the net! Eventually Celtic have
doubled their advantage, surely now they have booked a place in the
quarterfinals. Mousa Dembele will clear that goal, it looked like it
might have been heading in already from Scott Brown. It was definitely
Mousa Dembele's goal. Squared across goal from Brown. The easiest of
goals for Mousa Dembele. At last Albion Rovers resolve is completely
broken. Armstrong gets it back from
Sinclair. Good save from Ross Stewart to deny him. It would have
been a fine goal. He reacted well. Roberts dropping the shoulder,
trying to get the cross in. He's done really well, Patrick Roberts.
There is the third from Celtic and Stewart Armstrong does get his goal.
It's all thanks to Roberts. Pace and skill here from Roberts. Just
tremendous. The poised to pick out the path left by thing Claire and
hammered home by Stewart Armstrong for his ninth goal of the season --
left by Sinclair. Celtic make that scoreline look more emphatic. Our
tempo and professionalism was very good today. We had good
concentration. As the game went on, particularly in the second half, I
thought our tempo was very good. It very pleasing performance. Maybe we
could have tried to keep the ball a wee bit better but with the guys
they are up against, they are under pressure so quickly. You are trying
to keep the ball and making it back. It's some quality they've got. We
are in every single competition to win it. Every game we play we want
to win. Whatever competition. This was our next game. We've had a good
win, a good professional performance, move on to Wednesday
night. It will be a tough game for us but we look to maintain this
momentum and keep bringing the victories and good performances.
STUDIO: Giant-killing, comfortable in the Enver Brendan Rodgers 's
side. A moment of brilliance with that goal, wasn't it? It's great to
see Tierney back, as if he hasn't been away. That's a wonderful
finish. You can see, he thinks the goal is going wide. Even us, we
thought it was going well over the bar. We were looking for a
deflection or something. When he hits it off that surface, he manages
to get underneath the ball, it takes a dramatic dip. Fantastic finish.
Patrick Roberts came on, he was just a fantastic presence in terms of the
creativity. One player you don't want to see coming on if you are an
Albion Rovers player, that's for sure. He's showing great skill to
get by someone. It's a great link to Dembele. There are three players
around him, there. It's a skill that gets him by. On this surface it's
hard to do. You guys are critical of this surface. That time you use
skill. There's three players around him again. This time it's just
blistering pace. That was the problem is Albion Rovers all the way
through the game. That was a brilliant piece of skill, there. He
looks absolutely upfront. You need to do it against the top teams like
that. All the way through the game, not just when he came on, complete
and utter control by Celtic. It's no real surprise but they managed to
keep it down to 2-0. I think Albion can walk away quite proud of
themselves. Who can stop Celtic winning the trouble? We seen it
before with big teams, some decisions go against you in these
big games. It is a possibility that obviously they are going to go for
the trouble. There are still a lot of good teams in this cup ready to
take it often. In terms of Albion Rovers, it wasn't their day. This
was a chance to have a day in the sun. Celtic such a tough
proposition. What are their ambitions? On the day, they didn't
want to be embarrassed. We all know in Scottish Cup day in the earlier
rounds, if you, pay -- if you, against a big team can be a cricket
score. That didn't happen. They can walk away with no embarrassment and
say, we gave them a bit of a game. Let's concentrate on the leak. It's
a cliche because it is true. And they made a bit of cash, too. Raith
Rovers were looking for a Scottish Cup shock as they took on Hearts.
COMMENTATOR: Raith Rovers stick largely with the team of last week
at Capel. Another former Hearts player, no fewer than four debutants
in the starting XI. That's as close as anyone has come.
Should have hit the target, the delivery is superb. It's a free
header. Get it on target. It's a goal.
That is a poor one. This might be the opening for hearts, there it is.
Jamie Walker does it again. 11th goal of the seriously profitable
season and that will relieve some nerves. The frustrating thing for
Raith Rovers is it is self-inflicted. Mistake in midfield.
Fantastic pass through to Jimmy Walker for his 11th of the season.
This pass here from Cali. No more than hearts deserve you would say.
Quick throw. Gets the break of the ball. Big opportunity. Stewart
spurns it. What a mess. I do not think he can quite believe he's
missed. McHattie does ever so well. Make the right decision. How
dizziness it? Three yards out. Incredible miss. If Raith Rovers do
not somehow call themselves back into this time Mark Stewart is not
sleeping the night. Another opportunity. Handball? Hamilton
makes a save. They have Hearts on the ropes. Fantastic save in the
end. Turning it around for the corner. Incomes the corner. Still
alive. Raith Rovers have live here. Hamilton again. The last five or ten
minutes for Raith Rovers have been their best of the match by a
distance. This time it is Ian Davidson denied. Martin will take
the corner. They wanted a penalty, nothing
doing. Not a good delivery it has to be said and I did think he was
pushed to the ground. Benedictus all over him. Mvoto. Backed up by
Benedictus. They will accept the corner. Not done yet. They have
caused problems with their set plays so far. Certainly they have a height
advantage. They will take the replay. They would snap off your arm
for a replay right now. Benedictus. Wouldn't you just know it! Wouldn't
you just know it?! Hearts appealing but Raith Rovers have levelled.
McManus got the final touch. From the Skacel effort. One more in the
final minute of the 90. Really decent hit from Skacel and I'm not
sure if he is offside. He is on. Definitely on. In the second half
they really have been the better side by a large margin. They deserve
to come out of this match with a draw. Huge moment potentially here.
Mvoto up, Hamilton saves and Hearts player. Mvoto causing absolute panic
in the defence. I do not think Hamilton knew much about it. How
difficult is that to take? It is OK. It is this situation... How is it
difficult, what is difficult? We just had to beat them again. Did you
pay the price perhaps for not putting it to bed in the second
half? Possibly, possibly. Maybe we could have apply more pressure, more
chances. But we didn't and I have just been informed we will play in
midweek so we need still with that. We have had wee bit last few games.
-- wee blip. Great bunch of boys in addressing and they work ever so
hard so I'm delighted their effort is awarded. On another day we have
the chances to win the game. Very interesting game, in the end Raith
Rovers almost winning. It would have been a shock, the Hearts players
some of them vociferous in their complaints about the goal that he
was definitely on-site. They will not speak vociferous after they see
this. Well done to Rudi Skacel keeping that down. The technique is
brilliant. Most players take it from there and it goes over the crossbar
but when it comes in there, still on side and he is well on side. There
is not even a question. Good call from the officials? Not easy as well
because it looks as if he is well offside. Good call in particular
Martin who was formerly the best player. But good timing from Skacel.
Skacel always has a say in this game. But Mark Stewart has to be the
most relieved man. He will be, would have had nightmares otherwise. We
have all been there. You have never been there. May be in training. Can
I save his flushes, probably not, he should score. If anything it is a
bit tight when it comes to him. I will give him the benefit of the
doubt. He will know like anyone else he should have scored. Such a
charitable individual. That interview there was very
interesting. What do you make of the fact he didn't know they will play
on Wednesday. That is the slight surprise that he is learning areas
of the position and maybe wasn't aware of that. But he won't make
that mistake again. It will be mentioned by a number of people.
Oddly enough I think when you look at what he looks at in the game,
first half they were the better team, third in the Senate after they
were second best by the distance. He is just delighted he is not out of
the cup and he only has one thing on his mind, he has another shot. I
don't care when it is. Hibs beat Rangers in the final last season,
and last season 's finest began the campaign yesterday, Rangers up
against Motherwell the first Hibs took on Bonnyrigg Rose at
Tynecastle. , set step away by Andrew Shinnie, it has gone in. That
is a nightmare for Michael Rogers. That is the kind of thing when
Michelangelos went to bed last night he would have dreaded. Keatings. My
fancy a go. Why not. Why not indeed? -- Andrews. Stevenson. The
goalkeeper has spilt it. Humphrey gets there. Now, penalty. Not much
context to be fair to Jordan Foster. Bonnyrigg Rose reduce the arrears.
Brilliant finish. Chance for Stevenson. Hibs enjoying themselves
when Lewis Stevenson scores a goal. Sixth, great save, Cummings is
there. Keatings, seven. Free kick. It is eight, it is eight! The fairy
tale dream on Bonnyrigg Rose turning into a nightmare. On the Fulford
work, down under the challenge of Hammell and Rangers had a shout for
a penalty. Into the middle, his 30th goal, his 60th appears and it has
Motherwell ahead at Ibrox. Kenny Miller with the header. Stunning
goal romp Kenny Miller. All to play for. Chance for them, virginity back
to McDonald's. Wes Foderingham with the save. Given away by McManus.
Chance for Kenny Miller to win the match, he has! Rangers have come
from behind to win at Ibrox. STUDIO: Scott, are you feeling today after
watching that? Obviously gutted. Quite distraught after the game, we
put a lot into that game and frustrated Rangers for big parts.
They didn't really have many shots on goal until obviously we scored.
We probably dropped off a little bit that take nothing away from Kenny
Miller, 37 years of age and still producing the goods. Even more so
this one, excellent finish under pressure. To concede that late on,
that is twice at Ibrox this year and that has happened to us. Sorloth
McManus with a pass again, what was the general feeling in the dressing
room? Just distraught really, there wasn't much so I think the manager
said it all after the game. How disappointed he was. The were
exactly the same. The cult once again goes missing. In the fourth
round. For another season. We will have to put an end to that at some
point. Hopefully we can do that next time. Shocks are the lifeblood of
the cup, time to see which permission clubs came a cropper. --
Premiership clubs. On paper this looked like a banker home when and
how they found the net instead of the posted may well have been. Saint
Mary, the bottom side in the Championship, grateful of any gifts
and it psych Dundee defending allowed John Sutton to open the
scoring. -- slack. Five minutes after the break they made it safe.
Again some defending to infuriate Paul Hartley with Stevie Mallon
allowed to tee up Jack Beard. This one in Dingwall had to pass a
couple of pitch inspections, Kevin Clancy seeing enough through the
gloom to give it the thumbs up and it didn't disappoint. COMMENTATOR:
Good ball, what a finish from Christopher Ritchie.
There he goes. Two County Brezovan, cross in and what a finish from
Andrew. Good effort. And on the rebound from Paul Quinn and they are
back in front. He continues on his own. Across the face of goal. It
breaks for the third Ross County goal. Boys on the right-hand side.
Inside his man, Lillian Boyce sliding in there for. That is some
gold from the boys. Really slack, Tony Andrew... He has tucked it
away. Can he finished the match
altogether? Great save but on the rebound... Boyce. Lovely feet. Jim
O'Brien. To round things off in terrific fashion for Ross County. It
is a long bus journey and the Highland league side had barely got
the fresh air in their lungs before they found themselves behind at
Firhill. Chris Erskine shining brightest to open the scoring. Touch
of offside about the second. The visitors certainly thought so.
Stephen Moore was not hanging around on punishing the defence as they
waited for the whistle that never came. The Martin taught a lesson in
the dangers of playing out from the back. No questioning Chris Erskine's
mind as to what he would do with this little gift. The goal-scoring
was rounded off by the captain. More holes in the Martin defence, Osman
the man to exploit and put the finishing touches on a comfortable
afternoon for Partick. Safely through to the next round.
Derek McInnis has made no secret of his desire to add more silverware to
the trophy room. And they got up and running, here. With any fears of a
potential cup shot delayed, Aberdeen were able to attack in waves. Nile
McGinn striding through to supply number two. Stranraer struggled to
handle the step up in quality. This handball was the last thing that
they needed. Rooney made no mistake from the spot. A landmark goal for
the striker, his 70th in Aberdeen colours. The final word would go to
McGinn, the Northern Ireland international curling home number
four as other gene marched confidently into round five --
Aberdeen. The Saints showed there was no rustiness as they sealed the
win before half-time against their League 1 visitors. Stephen McClane
all on his own with time to pick a spot. The number nine then
demonstrated he is just as dangerous as a provider as he is a
goal-scorer. A bit of cheek in the process, Blair Alston with a goal to
continue their Scottish Cup charge. Two teams who probably wouldn't mind
forgetting about the pressures of the Premiership basement battle for
a day, kill Marnoch handed debuts to five new players, Freddie Woodman
called into action by Ali Crawford. Perhaps first game nerves were to
blame for a rush of blood to the head from Osborne in second-half
stoppage time. Rakish Bingham brought down the curtain on the
Scottish Cup campaign from the penalty spot. All points north,
Elgin City took an Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The real Derby
buzz about this match there for us was Ellie Barber. Boro breaks, the
most northerly Football League ground in Britain. 12 and a half
thousand supporters crammed in here as Elgin City became the first and
last Highland league club to make it to the Scottish Cup quarterfinals in
1968. The ground hasn't changed much over the years. That was then, this
is now. Today Borough Briggs hosts top-flight opposition for the first
time in 45 years as city welcome Inverness Caledonian Thistle. A
fierce local rival from the past. There's a years of rivalry between
Elgin City and the two Inverness clubs. Today it will be quite
special in that it is the first visit to Borough Briggs for
Inverness. Obviously there's a bit of jealousy that someone local has
done a bit better than you. On the whole the fans are happy to see the
lads doing well. It goes way back to the 60s when they withered to top
teams in the high land league. Obviously they made massive strides.
It's great to get an opportunity to take them on again. We've got a
manager who has really brought another level of professionalism to
the club. His tremendous, and his assistant, they brought it to
another level. That's why instead of languishing at the bottom, we are
competing for a play-off place. We've done really well. When I took
the job here, the chairman stressed to me, if you get the team doing
well and winning, the support will come out in their numbers. They are
doing that today and I'm just looking forward to the start of the
game and seeing the crowd. I'm sure that will give us extra incentive,
the players will rise to that. It's the romance of the Cup. You never
know what might happen. Elgin have Shane Sutherland in their ranks, no
one in the British Football League setup has scored more goals this
season. Something to look forward to, no pressure on us really, with
them being a top-level team. There's an added motivation to do well being
an ex-player. It's got that feeling, it's going to be a big crowd, here.
We've got a week off, the lads of refreshed mentally and physically,
we are raring to go. We are looking hungry. We've got to produce a
performance. First half of the season you're looking to get
performance is right, second half is all about results. Today is about
results. Win at all costs. I don't care how we do it, as long as we
upgrade to the next round. Win at all costs would have to be winning
from behind, not pleasant viewing. A chance perhaps to try out a training
ground move. Mark Nicholson, the home hero. Borough Briggs, on its
feet. Losana Doumbouya with the level, not quite. This allowed by
the referee. No question about this effort, though. Larnell Cole dancing
through, delight for those in red and blue. Doumbouya causing
problems. Again, denied. Brilliant from keeper Mark Waters. Would it be
third time lucky for Doumbouya? But his afternoon would bear fruit.
Inverness in front for the first time. Would there be another twist
in this tale? It was written Shane Sutherland, but against his former
side, it wasn't to be. Shock avoided for the Premiership club. Plenty of
positives for the Highland neighbours. It's so pleasing for me.
I knew my players would give me everything they've got. The big
crowd, the fans got behind them and gave them that extra incentive they
needed. Getting the goal. Obviously I felt the first goal was important.
We didn't quite manage to hold onto it enough. Obviously we went a goal
behind. There was no panic or frustration in their play. There
were no fallouts on the park. Character was big for us, today.
STUDIO: Elgin are out but in a final look at the action from yesterday,
two leaked to clubs remain involved. Clyde manager Barry Ferguson boasts
an impressive Scottish Cup pedigree. His side fell behind early on. A
slight deflection helping this effort from Dylan Bikey find the
net. Separated by three points in the league to table, always promised
to be a tight affair. Peter McDonald levelled things up. At 36 years of
age, McDonald proves that age is no barrier to scoring goals. His second
here, his 16th strike of the season. And the veteran striker would be
presented with a chance for a hat-trick, when he was taken down in
the box. The Stirling keeper's superb save kept his side in the
Cup. Six minutes from time, Bikey swept home the equaliser and insured
his side will have to do it all over again at Broadwood on Tuesday the
31st. One of the goals of the round. Nicky Paterson with a moment to
remember to give East Fife the lead at Livingston. Nicky Cadden with a
free kick as Livingston searched the equaliser. A fine save from Mark
asked. Another save in the 89th minute.
No shortage of goals in this one and it was done firmly and who struck
first. Nicky Clarke giving them the perfect start. Only Paul McMullen
can tell us whether he was attempting a cross or a shot just
before the break. Either way his effort found its way into the net to
double their lead. By the hour mark, the job was just about done. Joe
Cardle smashing home the third. Allah were refused to crumble and
Stefan McCluskey marked his debut with the gold -- Alloa refuse to
crumble. Greig Spence's persistence was rewarded with a goal but the
rally from Alloa too late, Dunfermline were through. Falkirk
had a great chance to take but he made the save. Jamie Lindsay, unload
from Celtic, scoring. It wouldn't be the Scottish Cup without a pillar of
scaring a vital moment of action. The goal sealed by Ross Forbes as it
finished 2-0. A game of few chances at Somerset Park. This header from
Ryan McGeever about as close as either side would come to finding
the net. There was to be no breakthrough and a fourth-round
replay of weights them on Tuesday. The draw for the fifth round of the
Scottish Cup has been made and it was actually quite entertaining.
Thanks mainly to Rod Stewart, who certainly seemed to be enjoying
himself. I think he left SFA President hanging, that's the
technical term. All good fun. Here is the draw for the first round of
the William Hill Scottish Cup. As you can see, some juicy fixtures in
there, if Hearts can make it past Raith Rovers on Tuesday. That has to
be the tie of the round, doesn't it? They have to get by Raith Rovers
then Faith Kilbirnie in. If he can get through that he's an absolute
hero. It does push on the pressure a bit more but it looks to me by some
distance if they get through that, Hearts, then that's the tie of the
round. There are some other good ties. Ross County and Aberdeen, try
calling that one. Raith Rovers will have a say. Disappointing in a way
that Rangers and Celtic both with home draws? Everyone else looking at
it I would imagine so. I think the Dunfermline Hamilton game is a tough
tie for Hamilton to go there. I don't really like talking about it,
actually, because we aren't involved, it's rubbish! Some really
good ties. With that thing that always you, if you aren't in it. I
was dreading coming on! Should babe pic Rod Stewart the next year?
Absolutely, he was brilliant! -- should they book Rod Stewart for
next year. Sportscene is back next weekend. The Ladbrokes Premiership
returns. The summit was all an illusion, for
others it remains very real. Until next time, good night.
The Robshaws are going back in time again.
I feel a little bit overwhelmed at the moment.
How people did this every day I don't know.
Looks like they're going to need it. Calf's head...
Leave the teeth out of it, won't you?
It's incredible the changes that have occurred in just 50 years.
Jonathan Sutherland presents highlights from the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.
Celtic have lifted the oldest trophy in world football a record 36 times, but will not take anything for granted against League One Albion Rovers, who knocked out Motherwell and took Rangers to a replay during an impressive cup run three seasons ago.
In the day's other cup tie Hearts travel to Raith Rovers.
Plus, a look back at all the goals and key talking points from the rest of the weekend's cup ties.
