A wide Docteur Ben Knight, but no slick pop as Sol take win their

:00:15.:00:23.

match. -- a wet October night as Celtic win their match. United pay

:00:23.:00:28.

the penalty as Falkirk grab more headlines. It is the League Cup

:00:28.:00:34.

semi-final. Don't write off the underdogs.

:00:34.:00:42.

Who will play Karl -- Kilmarnock in seven weeks with a chance to lift

:00:42.:00:47.

this trophy? We will let you know in a couple of hours. The second

:00:47.:00:51.

semi-final is of course between the SPL leaders Celtic and First

:00:51.:00:55.

Division Falkirk. It is live on the BBC and later we will have

:00:55.:01:02.

highlights of the first semi-final, with the Kilmarnock manager and the

:01:02.:01:06.

Bolton manager. This is a spy mission for you. Are you expecting

:01:06.:01:11.

Celtic in the final? It is Cup final. You don't know. Yesterday's

:01:11.:01:16.

game went to extra time and it is difficult to say. Celtic should be

:01:16.:01:20.

favourites but you do not know in the Cup. Looking at the Falkirk

:01:20.:01:23.

team, they are organised and disciplined and I think they will

:01:23.:01:28.

give a good game today. Falkirk was your first managerial job. Is there

:01:28.:01:34.

a place in your heart? Very much so. They are a fantastic club. They

:01:34.:01:37.

have had difficult years with finance and everything else. What

:01:37.:01:43.

they have been doing recently, they have a tremendous set of kids, they

:01:43.:01:47.

are growing and getting better. Today they will have to be at their

:01:47.:01:51.

maximum. They will have to hope that Celtic is hoped the league of

:01:51.:01:56.

their game at the bit, and that can happen. -- hope for Diouf their

:01:56.:02:06.
:02:06.:02:08.

game. Will pat -- Falkirk try to do what they did yesterday? It will be

:02:08.:02:12.

interesting to see. United were fairly defensive, and we will talk

:02:12.:02:17.

about it later. I was polite about it yesterday. I don't think Falkirk

:02:17.:02:20.

did that. Because they are doing well in the league and scoring

:02:20.:02:25.

quite a few goals, they will have more of ago. There are plenty in

:02:25.:02:31.

the team that just love to attack. They score a lot of goals as well.

:02:31.:02:36.

I expect that it will be an open game. Le of promising players at

:02:36.:02:41.

Falkirk. It seems to be a great system. -- lots of promising

:02:41.:02:50.

players. They are producing lots of talent. Yes, all the managers were

:02:50.:02:54.

coach's first and foremost. You need to work with young players to

:02:54.:02:58.

help them develop. You need to do that in terms of a business plan

:02:58.:03:02.

for your club. You can generate cash for your club. It is a

:03:02.:03:09.

positive outcome for the years to come. He is a fantastic lad and he

:03:09.:03:14.

is driven to succeed and he has Alex Smith. That is a great

:03:14.:03:18.

combination. They are not all young. Darren Dods lends a bit of

:03:18.:03:22.

experience to the centre of the Falkirk defence. We are expecting

:03:22.:03:31.

James Forrest at the head of a diamond behind Hooper. That will be

:03:31.:03:35.

difficult for them to contain. have mixed opinions on that. I

:03:35.:03:38.

think he might be more effective on the outside of the team because he

:03:39.:03:42.

can get down the sides and things can happen for the front players.

:03:42.:03:46.

He is definitely a threat. He has been fantastic this season. He is

:03:46.:03:51.

doing really well. They talk about the young players at Falkirk and

:03:51.:03:55.

rightly so. There are some good young players coming through.

:03:55.:03:59.

have spoken to Alex Smith and Steven Pressley. The manager

:03:59.:04:04.

certainly believes that the upset here is possible. There is no point

:04:04.:04:10.

going to a game if you do not think it is possible. I think people in

:04:10.:04:15.

First Division football may not be aware of Farid El Alagui, and he is

:04:15.:04:19.

a goalscorer. The problem is that all the way through Celtic's team

:04:19.:04:27.

there are guys that can score goals. That will make it a tough win for

:04:27.:04:31.

Falkirk but I am looking forward to it. It is Celtic against Falkirk

:04:32.:04:35.

for the right to play Kilmarnock on March 18th at Hampden Park in the

:04:36.:04:43.

final. Billy Dodds and Liam McLeod of commentating. -- are

:04:43.:04:53.
:04:53.:04:54.

best sides in Scotland right now, even though there is one league

:04:54.:04:59.

between them. Falkirk have only lost four of 29 games in

:04:59.:05:05.

competition this season, including beating Dundee United and Rangers

:05:05.:05:14.

in this competition. Celtic have turned a 15 point deficit into a

:05:14.:05:24.
:05:24.:05:25.

potential four point lead over Rangers. They produced 1- 1 point

:05:25.:05:35.
:05:35.:05:40.

with victory. -- they reduced that to one point. They have not been on

:05:40.:05:49.

such a good run in the early four years. -- nearly four years. A

:05:49.:05:52.

pleasant day compared to yesterday for the derby. It was freezing them

:05:52.:06:00.

but not as bad today. Darren Dods leads the Falkirk team. He is 36,

:06:00.:06:08.

nearly 37. It is the youthful Falkirk squad. Steven Pressley's

:06:08.:06:13.

starting 11 features 17 year-old Jay Fulton, the son of Steve,

:06:13.:06:19.

former Hearts defender. He scored in the Scottish Cup against

:06:19.:06:26.

Dunfermline a couple of years back. Wallace is in defence with Farid El

:06:26.:06:32.

Alagui, who is scoring in every game so far, up front. James

:06:32.:06:40.

Forrest scored last week against St Mirren and twice against Hibernian.

:06:40.:06:45.

Playing behind Anthony Stokes and Gary Hooper. Many feel that is his

:06:45.:06:51.

best position. He and Garry Hooper have scored 31 goals between them

:06:51.:06:59.

during this campaign. 16 year-old Craig Sibbald is on the Falkirk

:06:59.:07:05.

benches. He made his debut in July, the first graduate of the SNP

:07:05.:07:11.

performance school. He scored against Aberdeen in the semis last

:07:11.:07:21.
:07:21.:07:23.

season. He has to make do with the substitute position. The referee

:07:23.:07:33.

has been an official since 2005. He has the man they are all talking

:07:33.:07:40.

about. Farid El Alagui up front, 21 goals already. I have already

:07:40.:07:42.

mention the number that Anthony Stokes and Gary Hooper have, as

:07:42.:07:47.

they get us under way at the National Stadium. Neil Lennon will

:07:47.:07:53.

be wary of the threat that Steven Pressley's Bairns will pose the

:07:53.:08:03.
:08:03.:08:14.

team. The Bairns have started on yesterday. They are such a small

:08:15.:08:18.

and youthful squad. They are currently so passing the

:08:18.:08:22.

expectations of even the most diehard supporters this season. --

:08:22.:08:32.
:08:32.:08:33.

Pressley, with his glittering career as a player, as Neil Lennon

:08:33.:08:39.

had. Falkirk having plenty of possession in the early stages.

:08:40.:08:48.

They will have to do that throughout. Scobie is one of the

:08:48.:08:53.

more familiar figures for people that have not seen much of Falkirk

:08:53.:09:01.

since they went down. How is this going to go, Billy Dodds? A bit

:09:01.:09:05.

like yesterday. A positive start from Falkirk but they will have to

:09:05.:09:11.

sit and soak a bit today. A bit of pressure to keep Celtic at bay.

:09:11.:09:21.
:09:21.:09:29.

They have pace with El Alagui scoring goals. He finished the game

:09:29.:09:39.
:09:39.:10:19.

against St Mirren with James been on since the end of October.

:10:19.:10:24.

36 points out of the 36 in the league. Neil Lennon and Celtic have

:10:24.:10:34.
:10:34.:10:48.

the trouble in their sights. -- with the way that Falkirk have

:10:48.:10:55.

started this game. They were in the right half of the pitch for long

:10:55.:10:59.

periods. Getting it over the crossbar, he just cannot keep it

:10:59.:11:04.

down. Certainly getting the ball forward. Higginbotham is trying to

:11:04.:11:14.
:11:14.:11:35.

get forward to support Farid El earlier in the campaign. It was an

:11:35.:11:45.
:11:45.:11:58.

Ledley went down. He scored in the final game against Rangers in

:11:58.:12:08.
:12:08.:12:29.

rhythm now. Joe Ledley coming in, getting forward up the pitch, down

:12:29.:12:39.
:12:39.:12:39.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:12:39.:13:24.

-- chip it across. So the first against Rangers earlier in the

:13:24.:13:30.

competition. They were 2-0 down and they got it back to 2-2 with a few

:13:30.:13:34.

minutes to go. Then that Mark Millar free kicks stunned the

:13:34.:13:40.

holders. Billy Dodds was there. Goalkeeper mistake, you have to say,

:13:40.:13:44.

but we can't take anything away it from Mark Millar. He will provide

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:14:30.

the service for Al Allardyce. -- shows how much of a financial hit

:14:30.:14:35.

they took when they went down to the First Division. Young boys, but

:14:35.:14:39.

they have got experience. The academy has been working because

:14:39.:14:45.

lots of people have come through. Jay Fulton on the right hand side,

:14:45.:14:55.
:14:55.:15:05.

for example. Plenty coming through That will give Falkirk hope,

:15:05.:15:11.

without a doubt. without a doubt.

:15:11.:15:13.

Higginbotham, is the one who I said gets forward. You can see here a

:15:13.:15:17.

good space out in the front for El Alagui. He maybe should have tried

:15:17.:15:27.
:15:27.:15:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:15:27.:17:54.

Alagui. He maybe should have tried this season, hasn't he?.

:17:54.:18:04.
:18:04.:18:32.

He's off-side. The flag's gone up. That won't count. It's a great

:18:32.:18:37.

touch from McGovern, you have to say. He curled it with that right

:18:37.:18:41.

foot. An all-important touch.

:18:41.:18:48.

You can see he's not off-side. He's on. That's a big let-off for

:18:49.:18:58.
:18:59.:18:59.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:18:59.:20:07.

Falkirk. Was it Duffie on that the ball quickly. Should have had

:20:07.:20:15.

the opening goal, Liam. He's great to watch, Vladimir Lenin,

:20:15.:20:25.
:20:25.:21:00.

front at the semi-final. Should it have stood? It looks like it should

:21:00.:21:04.

have done. It's not close. It's not inches.

:21:04.:21:09.

It's half a yard to a yard. Playing alongside an explosive

:21:09.:21:17.

finish. He's got that one really badly long. When you're the

:21:17.:21:27.
:21:27.:21:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:21:27.:22:24.

underdog you need things like that He did win the Scottish Cup at

tracking by Fulton as well. a head on it. Unlucky. On to the

:24:13.:24:23.
:24:23.:24:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:24:23.:25:11.

yesterday. They had to be patience and got there.

:25:11.:25:21.
:25:21.:25:50.

Millar. A former Celtic player. If he had the time he'd do it all day

:25:50.:25:55.

long. Diagonal away to... As I said, that is the way for Duffie. Down

:25:55.:26:00.

the right. He gets it across. Nothing gets across. A corner

:26:00.:26:10.
:26:10.:26:47.

are, how top a day you are, you'll get some of that.

:26:47.:26:57.
:26:57.:27:28.

they have plenty of options ahead of them.

:27:28.:27:38.
:27:38.:27:40.

It's Wanyama for Celtic. Stokes got that horribly wrong!

:27:40.:27:45.

I can only thing and I have done it a few times myself, it is one where

:27:45.:27:51.

you go to cross it. You see here, if it just touches the ball, here

:27:51.:27:56.

you are, have that! He's not going to want to watch

:27:56.:28:06.
:28:06.:28:06.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:28:06.:29:03.

that again, is he? yellow.

:29:03.:29:12.

Letting him know he's there. He los a bit of that -- loves a bit

:29:12.:29:17.

of that, doesn't he? I think Brown will try and get him

:29:17.:29:20.

back. You talk about Falkirk and that option and the extra man in

:29:20.:29:25.

the middle of the pitch, they do it well. Pass it about. Celtic

:29:25.:29:30.

struggling in there to match up numbers, maybe more of a threat.

:29:30.:29:40.
:29:40.:29:59.

Pushing at that mid-field trying to Must have been tight. Scobbie. I'd

:29:59.:30:09.
:30:09.:30:38.

Forster clawed it away. That was great play down the right hand side.

:30:38.:30:48.
:30:48.:30:48.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:30:48.:31:38.

He kind of drives across. I fancy 0 up against Aberdeen so recently.

:31:38.:31:48.
:31:48.:31:53.

once they don't get that early goal, they start going after a certain

:31:53.:31:57.

stage in the game. I am sure Falkirk want that and Celtic

:31:57.:32:07.
:32:07.:32:11.

certainly don't. United's goalkeeper Cuthbert was fantastic.

:32:11.:32:16.

Eight goals this season for James Forrest. Including one in pays the

:32:16.:32:26.
:32:26.:32:58.

right Frank, Cha Du-Ri. Especially going forward. -- right flank.

:32:58.:33:02.

Charlie Mulgrew, one of the scorers and the Scottish Cup final against

:33:02.:33:09.

Motherwell, taking the corner. Straight to the spot and a yellow-

:33:09.:33:16.

card for Darren Dods. What it closely and we will see it again.

:33:16.:33:25.

Or over him. -- all over him. The tall ones against one another. He

:33:25.:33:31.

looked at that and he pointed straight to the spot. There you go.

:33:31.:33:35.

In the blink of an eye, Celtic have an opportunity to go in front in

:33:35.:33:42.

the semi-final and their skipper takes it. Brown! Falkirk had the

:33:42.:33:46.

stuffing knocked out of them. In the blink of an eye, Scott Brown

:33:46.:33:55.

converts. To give Scott Brown his due, he stepped up. Celtic have

:33:55.:33:59.

missed a few penalties this season. It does not matter if the

:33:59.:34:03.

goalkeeper goes the right way, he just does not save that. Good goal,

:34:03.:34:09.

a good pace. Back-to-back goals, having scored last weekend. Last

:34:09.:34:12.

week was his first of the season and he has got his second now. This

:34:12.:34:19.

was why it was a penalty. Darren Dods on Thomas Rogne. From the most

:34:19.:34:26.

experienced man, they are cheaper penalty. He can't have any

:34:26.:34:29.

complaints. He was unlucky to be caught because it happens all over

:34:29.:34:35.

the box. Every time there is a set piece, it happens. With the referee

:34:35.:34:40.

five, 10 yards away from you, that was all wrong. When Darren Dods

:34:40.:34:50.
:34:50.:35:03.

looks back and sees it, he will let their heads go down. It was a

:35:03.:35:06.

case of getting the formation and protecting it until extra-time and

:35:06.:35:13.

penalties. Fraser Forster has not been tested so far in the match,

:35:13.:35:18.

but they did look quite comfortable in the game. They were great for 26

:35:19.:35:24.

minutes. Suddenly the skipper gives away a penalty like that. You can't

:35:24.:35:33.

account for it for the manager, who will be extremely unhappy. Darren

:35:33.:35:37.

Dods is a man among boys in that squad, but he did not cover himself

:35:37.:35:43.

in glory. It could have been an awkward time for Celtic if they had

:35:43.:35:53.
:35:53.:36:00.

not got their noses in front, as with St Johnstone and then with

:36:00.:36:10.
:36:10.:36:18.

the way. I am all for blogging people and stopping goals, but you

:36:18.:36:25.

cannot start grabbing them. If anyone tells you, if anyone has a

:36:25.:36:30.

hold of you, you have every right to go down. He was grabbed all over

:36:30.:36:40.
:36:40.:36:40.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:36:40.:38:22.

against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Celtic should be in front because

:38:23.:38:27.

of the goal that was chopped off anyway. But I think it has been a

:38:27.:38:37.
:38:37.:39:03.

pretty even match. Falkirk have had generally speaking have a great

:39:03.:39:11.

understanding. Very rarely do you see Neil Lennon pick the same

:39:11.:39:21.
:39:21.:39:21.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:39:21.:40:55.

Murray Wallace think? As Celtic moved the ball about well, but to

:40:55.:41:05.
:41:05.:41:35.

be fair to Falkirk, they are around the area, sniffing around,

:41:35.:41:45.
:41:45.:41:57.

trying to find space in the Falkirk changed since Celtic scored, that

:41:57.:42:05.

is for sure. Just trying to get the ball, tried to get the full Back's

:42:05.:42:15.
:42:15.:42:15.

forward. They are keeping it tight at the back, giving nothing away.

:42:15.:42:23.

They are trying to use their man in midfield. Higginbotham and Mark

:42:23.:42:33.
:42:33.:42:43.

Millar are getting forward to had a mixed bag, the assistant

:42:43.:42:51.

referee. He had a howler but that one was right. SPL highlights

:42:51.:42:58.

tonight at 10 o'clock on BBC Two Scotland. You'll get the highlights

:42:58.:43:03.

from the weekend as well. But if you have not seen it yet, the derby

:43:03.:43:13.
:43:13.:43:44.

at Hampden Park highlights will go for that. Scott Brown put him

:43:44.:43:54.
:43:54.:43:54.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:43:54.:44:46.

the season because of injury but he came back and has been an important

:44:46.:44:49.

force for Celtic. The way they have turned things round, when you think

:44:49.:44:54.

back to being 3-0 down against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in the

:44:54.:44:58.

autumn. They have turned things round in the SPL and Scott Brown

:44:58.:45:06.

coming back has helped with that. Of course. Leading by example.

:45:06.:45:16.
:45:16.:45:40.

Celtic missed a few penalties the covering player for Falkirk.

:45:40.:45:49.

Scott Brown again. Celtic fans don't like him. He's

:45:49.:45:59.
:45:59.:45:59.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:45:59.:46:57.

Decent shot in goal. Dods stands and they have.

:46:57.:47:07.
:47:07.:47:10.

Would you believe it. Falkirk have got themselves back on level terms.

:47:10.:47:16.

The 17-year-old son of Steve has brought put Falkirk back into the

:47:16.:47:25.

league cup semi-final. Absolute quality. Higginbotham

:47:25.:47:32.

could have let it go, but what a pass! That gets in, spots Fulton

:47:32.:47:39.

coming in. He has so much to do. How about that for composure?

:47:39.:47:44.

Falkirk back in it. A moment he would have dreamt of,

:47:44.:47:51.

big time - the biggest moment of his life so far.

:47:51.:47:57.

Jay Fulton, equalising against Celtic at a crucial time.

:47:57.:48:01.

Five minutes to go until half time. You can see what it means to his

:48:01.:48:06.

manager. A double celebration, because his team are back into it.

:48:06.:48:10.

He's put a 17-year-old into the start today. He's the man who has

:48:10.:48:20.
:48:20.:48:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:48:20.:49:10.

had the chance for a second Celtic goal.

:49:10.:49:20.
:49:20.:49:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:49:20.:50:20.

at some point. I take nothing away from Falkirk, pure quality - I am

:50:20.:50:30.
:50:30.:50:34.

sure - I mean it's come from the for Jay Fulton? He had to get

:50:34.:50:44.
:50:44.:50:56.

Trying to get himself back in. Maybe a little harsh on him. It was

:50:56.:51:03.

Wanyama. Rogne so close to making decent contact with the ball as the

:51:03.:51:13.
:51:13.:51:35.

the stadium. Falkirk equal loizing through

:51:35.:51:38.

youngster Jay Fulton. Here they -- equalising through younger Jay

:51:38.:51:48.
:51:48.:51:48.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:51:48.:52:59.

Here it may be a touch too much. You cannot take anything away from

:52:59.:53:09.
:53:09.:53:11.

the goalkeeper. The goalkeeper was brilliant - out quickly.

:53:11.:53:16.

Topsyure I have stuff in Mount Florida.

:53:16.:53:26.
:53:26.:53:55.

Forrest holds on. fantastic first half to watch. Dods

:53:56.:54:01.

conceded a penalalty. Brown converted this - this was the

:54:01.:54:09.

incident, Dods hauling him to the deck. Straight to the point. Scot

:54:09.:54:13.

Brown got it up the other end. Falkirk attacked. A great pass

:54:13.:54:18.

through from the man of the match so far, Higginbotham, rolled calmly

:54:18.:54:23.

to the net by 17-year-old Jay Fulton. That delighted his father

:54:23.:54:30.

there - Steve. That means, at half time, at the National Stadium it is

:54:30.:54:40.
:54:40.:54:50.

theme developing here, remembering theme developing here, remembering

:54:50.:54:56.

young Dean's goal yesterday. Yes. Falkirk have been fantastic.

:54:56.:55:00.

Especially after they scored. When Celtic get position they are using

:55:00.:55:04.

half a pitch to play on. When fall Falkirk get possession they are

:55:04.:55:09.

playing in quarter of the pitch. Their build-up play has been good,

:55:09.:55:13.

with incisive passing. At the top of that is Higginbotham, just

:55:13.:55:18.

behind El Alagui. He's been fantastic. For me, he's been the

:55:18.:55:23.

best play on the pitch so far. worried is Neil Lennon? I don't

:55:23.:55:30.

think so much worry, he'll be concerned. 1-1, they were comfort

:55:30.:55:31.

concerned. 1-1, they were comfort concerned. 1-1, they were comfort

:55:31.:55:38.

without. Within that they have not had a lot of penetration. When they

:55:38.:55:45.

got the goal, that was a penalty. I think it was and we'll see it later

:55:45.:55:50.

on. The passing never improved. Falkirk, to their credit have

:55:50.:55:53.

continued to pass, using a lot of triangles. They are prepared to

:55:53.:55:58.

take the ball into tight areas. They have been a credit.

:55:58.:56:05.

The goal, it was so well exsuited. They -- executed. They deserved it.

:56:05.:56:09.

It is easy to feel sorry for yourself. They acted in a positive

:56:09.:56:15.

manner. Kept to the game plan. That resulted in that. A great goal-

:56:15.:56:20.

scoring chance. There's been a high-profile blip for Falkirk in

:56:20.:56:28.

that first half. Other than that, it working to perfection? It's the

:56:28.:56:32.

mid-field - it's that whole mid- field area where you expect a

:56:32.:56:39.

smaller team not to have the belief at Hampden Park, on the big stage.

:56:39.:56:44.

Higginbotham - he's been absolutely outstanding. Particularly - they

:56:44.:56:54.
:56:54.:56:56.

all want to get the ball, all happy to receive the ball, with players

:56:56.:57:00.

around them I think there was a blip for five minutes. I think

:57:00.:57:05.

Darren Dods would be the first to concede it was a moment of madness,

:57:05.:57:10.

wasn't it, that allowed Celtic to get into the lead? Very much so.

:57:10.:57:14.

The most experienced player. You see there's no excuse for it.

:57:14.:57:21.

A clear penalty. The thing about that is we all want players to mark

:57:21.:57:27.

tight corners, et cetera. He man handled from the outset.

:57:27.:57:34.

That's a clear penalty. When you see that is averted from the six-

:57:34.:57:38.

yard line, great composure, Stokes into the corner. From that point,

:57:38.:57:43.

you think that will give Celtic the chance to push on and score more

:57:43.:57:45.

chance to push on and score more goals. They have come back roaring

:57:45.:57:50.

a lot of quality. They can be hard to spot for a referee, but not that

:57:50.:58:00.
:58:00.:58:00.

time. I didn't see it. That tells time. I didn't see it. That tells

:58:00.:58:04.

you about me. One of the big characteristics of

:58:04.:58:09.

the Falkirk time is they are all tall and good in the air. What he

:58:09.:58:14.

might do is put Forrest at the front and maybe get something back

:58:14.:58:19.

on the front and get slide throughs. What they are doing now is they are

:58:19.:58:25.

getting into the box. That is where getting into the box. That is where

:58:25.:58:30.

Falkirk are very strong. D They have to think about changing things.

:58:30.:58:35.

What an equaliser - both in the way it was created and finished, but a

:58:35.:58:42.

17-year-old, Jay Fulton. Celtic, not under pressure. Every

:58:42.:58:46.

part of this - the weight of the pass here, he was going on about it

:58:46.:58:51.

beforehand as well. It is fabulous. He doesn't panic. He's got time to

:58:51.:58:57.

panic when the ball arrives at him. Passed, perfect, a stride, it is

:58:57.:59:02.

what a composed finish. That is a finish of an international striker.

:59:02.:59:07.

To have the composure and go on, 17 years of age, remember. Such

:59:07.:59:13.

composure. His father is an outstanding player. I know the kids

:59:13.:59:19.

well, because they are family friends. You can see the smile on

:59:19.:59:26.

Stephen's face. Most would panic. Kids - that's exactly what they'd

:59:26.:59:30.

do. On that stage to show that composure - I think it speaks

:59:30.:59:34.

volumes for the way hay have been developed at the football club.

:59:34.:59:44.
:59:44.:59:45.

They have been a credit to the football club. Falkirk have played

:59:45.:59:51.

so much top-quality football, great confidence. I am highly impressed

:59:51.:59:56.

with them. From that goal he was in position, he received it on the

:59:56.:00:03.

left side. He's let it come across his body. He has presence of mind.

:00:03.:00:09.

He's done it all. Playing it quickly as well. This is a team

:00:09.:00:15.

that people think are big underdogs. Higginbotham has this. Again, they

:00:15.:00:18.

are comfortable on the ball. They did not have a lot of

:00:18.:00:21.

penetration. They will take confidence from the fact they know

:00:21.:00:31.
:00:31.:00:34.

they can score. They are prepared I have been impressed with the

:00:35.:00:40.

Falkirk team when they have been meet with that kind of ball. Celtic

:00:40.:00:47.

are finding it difficult to pick them up. A clever pass. They could

:00:47.:00:55.

be better in that situation. question remains, do Celtic need to

:00:55.:00:59.

kill that area? I think they need to pass the ball quicker than they

:00:59.:01:04.

are doing. They are getting loads of possession but there is no real

:01:04.:01:12.

sense of urgency. If they pass it from side to side, then Falkirk

:01:12.:01:15.

will be comfortable. I am not convinced they are defending well

:01:15.:01:24.

against Celtic. What are you shouting about? I'd do a lot of

:01:24.:01:31.

shouting! I think you might have some competition on the back of

:01:31.:01:36.

today. If you were thinking of that signing. He was off the radar fall

:01:36.:01:43.

while, but who knows? -- for a while. The way he is playing, I

:01:43.:01:47.

think Celtic have to duplicate what they are doing and that somebody at

:01:47.:01:51.

the top of the midfield. There are too many straight lines for me for

:01:51.:01:54.

Celtic. Higginbotham is making things happen and the support runs

:01:55.:02:04.

are getting connected. There was no penetration until Celtic scored.

:02:04.:02:10.

They have got Weatherston on one side. In my opinion, at this moment

:02:10.:02:17.

in time, Falkirk are favourites to win. They assistant referee is not

:02:17.:02:20.

the centre of attention that he might have been if there had been

:02:20.:02:26.

two more goals. This was blatantly the wrong decision. I can't

:02:26.:02:29.

understand why they did not get this one right. It is a long way

:02:29.:02:36.

from being offside, even after it hit the post. He is a good two

:02:36.:02:39.

yards on there. If we got it forward from here, he is still on

:02:39.:02:45.

side. That is a bad decision, to be fair. Don't forget that Celtic have

:02:45.:02:50.

had very good chances. They have hit the crossbar. They have the one

:02:50.:02:56.

on one with James Forrest as well. We have to keep in mind the kind of

:02:56.:03:00.

team that Celtic are as well. Falkirk are still underdogs but

:03:00.:03:04.

they have got a chance. This maybe explains why Darren Dods was

:03:04.:03:09.

nervous about Thomas Rogne. He had hit the bar from a set piece

:03:09.:03:16.

earlier on. He was marked down as a potential danger. You know where

:03:16.:03:21.

your opponent is so he knows that he is a threat. That is a good

:03:21.:03:26.

header. The most experienced player, do not put his team under pressure

:03:26.:03:34.

as he did. He is tight there, so he is doing his job in essence, but to

:03:34.:03:37.

concede the panel to the way that he did, that is hard to take for

:03:37.:03:47.
:03:47.:03:51.

the rest of the team mates. -- the penalty. Compare that with the gold

:03:51.:03:57.

that young Jay Fulton scored. That is a young player that will

:03:58.:04:01.

learn as he goes. Celtic have to move the ball as quickly as they

:04:01.:04:08.

can. Then they will have more opportunities. Michael McGovern

:04:08.:04:18.

becomes even more important to Falkirk than Jay Fulton. And yes. I

:04:18.:04:21.

was talking to Steven Pressley and he was talking about bringing in

:04:21.:04:24.

Darren Dods because he has so many young players and he needs more

:04:24.:04:28.

experience. Sometimes a senior player that has to take so much

:04:28.:04:32.

responsibility onto the pitch is worried about the younger lads, and

:04:32.:04:39.

overlooks his own job, which he has done twice from corner kicks. That

:04:39.:04:43.

can have an adverse effect as well, but his experience will help them

:04:43.:04:48.

organise around him. United yesterday, their goalkeeper was

:04:48.:04:53.

magnificent. Michael did a very good job when Forrest came through

:04:53.:04:59.

on goal. Some drama as the teams came in at half-time. Steven

:04:59.:05:03.

Pressley involved in an altercation. This was the prelude to an

:05:03.:05:10.

altercation with the referee. We gather that he pushed Emilio

:05:10.:05:13.

Izaguirre at the way to get to the referee when they were in the

:05:13.:05:18.

tunnel area. Of the back of that he has been called into the referee

:05:18.:05:23.

room to be spoken to. What is the upset about? We have to assume it

:05:23.:05:29.

is the penalty, don't we? Surely when he sees it? As a manager, he

:05:29.:05:33.

will see it. I know it happens every week, but it is a penalty.

:05:33.:05:40.

There is no issue there. It is a clear penalty. They passed to be

:05:40.:05:45.

that that he is taking issue with. I can't think of anything else. --

:05:45.:05:51.

it has to be that. He is releasing his emotions. He will be sent to

:05:51.:05:56.

the stands for the second half. much is a blow for that for the un

:05:56.:06:05.

team used to having the manager next door? -- the young team.

:06:05.:06:09.

if they have a quiet word then nobody sees it, but the cameras are

:06:09.:06:15.

on, so that will be the cause of action that he takes. Steven

:06:15.:06:18.

Pressley has just added to the problem because he has done it

:06:18.:06:23.

publicly. It is a passionate game and we all get passionate. But you

:06:23.:06:27.

have got to remember that you have to look after your team. For me

:06:27.:06:31.

there is no argument about that penalty. Unless it is the offside

:06:31.:06:38.

rule. If it was Neil Lennon complaining about the goal, I could

:06:38.:06:46.

understand the offside goal that was clearly onside. Steve Fulton is

:06:46.:06:56.
:06:56.:06:58.

a proud father today and Dean Shiels's father was proud yesterday.

:06:58.:07:04.

Are you speechless? He has followed up really well. He took his

:07:04.:07:10.

instincts on board. He took it very well. He had four, five attempts at

:07:10.:07:15.

goal yesterday, all opportunities, but what a relief that was for us.

:07:15.:07:20.

He worked tremendously hard. You can see myself, absolutely relieved.

:07:20.:07:26.

He is that as excited as you get? It was more relief than excited. I

:07:26.:07:29.

did not think we would do it because of the way the game had

:07:29.:07:32.

gone and I have seen it so many times when you have got domination

:07:32.:07:37.

and you cannot get the goal. I had a real strong feeling that it would

:07:37.:07:46.

go to penalties. Did you have a wee sherry? I am on antibiotics at the

:07:46.:07:53.

minute. There is a bit of doubt now, when there wasn't after a bit, at

:07:53.:08:00.

about who Kilmarnock will be facing? I still believe Celtic are

:08:00.:08:09.

the favourites. I think that Neil Lennon will be demanding that they

:08:09.:08:15.

pass and move the ball quicker. But Falkirk are in the game. It has

:08:15.:08:21.

been good to see. Bad news for you, by the way. I think you are away to

:08:21.:08:26.

Millwall, or Southampton. That is not something you wanted to know

:08:26.:08:31.

about. They are all tough games. It is the FA Cup and we love it. We

:08:31.:08:37.

will look to progress to the quarter-finals. Falkirk at Hampden

:08:37.:08:42.

Park, the same requirement for them. Let's not forget that we are being

:08:42.:08:47.

quite technical. It is a good game and really enjoyable. Very good

:08:48.:08:51.

football being played by Falkirk. Celtic can play better and I

:08:51.:08:56.

suspect they will play better. man that got it wrong in the first

:08:56.:09:00.

half, Darren Dods, conceding that panel take, from which Scott Brown

:09:00.:09:04.

scored. This is the man that very much got it right for the First

:09:04.:09:10.

Division team. Jay Fulton with that equaliser which sets the SPL

:09:10.:09:14.

leaders are big second half challenge. One all, halfway through

:09:15.:09:19.

into the second half of the League Cup semi-finals. Back to Hampden

:09:19.:09:29.
:09:29.:09:42.

half-time. Emilio Izaguirre has been replaced. It is Sung-Yueng Ki.

:09:42.:09:49.

I wonder how much that is down to the goal. Emilio Izaguirre, good to

:09:49.:09:58.

be struggling for match figures? Maybe he has an injury. -- could he

:09:58.:10:08.
:10:08.:10:17.

with Jay Fulton. I think it must be an injury. He is a top-class player

:10:17.:10:24.

and he could have done better in front of goal. Falkirk have not

:10:24.:10:34.
:10:34.:10:36.

been to the semi-final since 1947. Celtic last won in 2009. That was

:10:37.:10:42.

after an extra-time victory over Rangers. That is El Alagui in the

:10:42.:10:50.

thick of the action already. A problem with Victor Wanyama. He has

:10:50.:11:00.
:11:00.:11:00.

taken a saw one in that challenge. -- a painful one. We will look at

:11:00.:11:07.

that in a moment. He is injured. Another blow for Celtic. Neil

:11:07.:11:12.

Lennon has been adding to his squad in the last week or so, certainly

:11:12.:11:21.

in a transfer window. He will be bringing in some new players. From

:11:21.:11:31.
:11:31.:11:31.

Nigeria, Sweden, we can't wait to see them. Victor Wanyama looks like

:11:31.:11:35.

he is going to be OK. The drama continued during the half-time

:11:35.:11:44.

interval. Steven Pressley is now in the stand. He could have gone to

:11:44.:11:50.

the left-hand side, it is only a few yards away, and still got his

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:12:00.:13:52.

message across. As you can see, audience the Falkirk now that

:13:52.:14:02.
:14:02.:14:02.

Steven Pressley is in at the stand. -- barking the orders now Steven

:14:02.:14:12.
:14:12.:14:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:14:12.:15:32.

Celtic was in 2007. Neil Lennon Falkirk to get out once more.

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:55.

Fulton. The headlines were there for him. He's already got some

:15:55.:15:59.

potentially. He'll make his dad double proud. He has to keep it

:15:59.:16:07.

down. Brilliant again. Higginbotham, so confident. Stands up that cross.

:16:07.:16:17.
:16:17.:16:35.

The young lad will want the lovely cross.

:16:35.:16:41.

A chance for Higginbotham to be on live television. He's taking

:16:41.:16:45.

advantage of it. May well have some suitors after the performance he's

:16:45.:16:51.

put in at the National Stadium so far. Remains 1-1 into the second

:16:51.:17:01.
:17:01.:17:01.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:17:01.:17:41.

Maybe he's not back in. Taking nothing away from Falkirk. You come

:17:41.:17:51.
:17:51.:17:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:17:51.:19:09.

Scobbie does well because he just must be on the back foot, knowing

:19:09.:19:19.
:19:19.:19:44.

away a corner though. Which will be Should have scored. Comes off the

:19:44.:19:50.

crossbar. A handball.

:19:50.:20:00.
:20:00.:20:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:20:00.:20:44.

I think it was a yard away. It came Stokes. Celtic are -- superb from

:20:44.:20:50.

Stokes. Celtic are back in front. That's a beauty. He's got it before.

:20:50.:20:56.

Celtic started the second half well, but what an individual! Brilliant

:20:56.:21:01.

from Anthony Stokes. Up, over reverse, pace, down in the cornern,

:21:01.:21:09.

no chance for the hero. Another wild moment from Stokes. He's now

:21:09.:21:14.

level with Hooper, 16 goals for the season. They are both goal machines

:21:14.:21:20.

up front for Celtic. That is as good a free kick as you'll see. He

:21:20.:21:26.

knows it. The boss is happy. Celtic are in

:21:26.:21:36.
:21:36.:21:36.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:21:36.:22:21.

doubt. McGovern has made a couple of

:22:21.:22:31.
:22:31.:23:06.

Celtic play on. They have the bit between their

:23:06.:23:16.
:23:16.:23:16.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:23:16.:26:13.

Falkirk have come from behind once. changing the gears. A bonus for him

:26:13.:26:17.

is it's not a corner either. That change will be made just now. It

:26:18.:26:22.

will be Fulton, the Falkirk goal scorer who will come off.

:26:22.:26:32.
:26:32.:26:35.

He will be replaced. How do you rate his performance

:26:35.:26:43.

overall? He has done very well. You can see why, his dad will be proud.

:26:43.:26:47.

The young lad can be performed of his performance. He has got himself

:26:47.:26:57.
:26:57.:26:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:26:57.:28:52.

third, that's for sure. Celtic will try and put this tie to bed.

:28:52.:28:56.

They've had a couple of scares. This is Mulgrew with a free-kick.

:28:56.:29:06.

It's good quality, delivery. It's a corner. The linesman on the far

:29:06.:29:10.

side will give the line-kick there. Doesn't know what to do with his

:29:10.:29:20.
:29:20.:29:39.

goal's crucial. You can see it on every man setting up that defensive

:29:39.:29:44.

wall. They don't want a third. Maybe they'll have another forward

:29:44.:29:48.

or change their shape, as I said. Still in control, passing the ball

:29:49.:29:56.

about. It's been a fair journey for Falkirk. Earlier than el tick did

:29:56.:30:06.
:30:06.:30:18.

already, they have beaten Albion Had that chance just before the

:30:18.:30:28.

trophies back to the Park Head boardroom at Celtic Park.

They have every chance of doing it. They have been relentless for the

past few months or so. There is the final whistle.

was a difficult first half. I am just glad to be in the final.

you ever scored a better free kick? My be one or two! I am delighted to

win. -- maybe. What was the manager saying to you? Just say

:01:34.:01:42.

congratulations. I am sure he is delighted by the result.

:01:42.:01:45.

youngsters played some great football. Yes, they made it very

:01:45.:01:51.

well. We did not take some chances in the first half and we probably

:01:51.:01:54.

could have killed the game off. But we stuck in there and we got the

:01:54.:02:00.

result. Kilmarnock in the final. Everybody is talking about the

:02:00.:02:05.

trouble for Celtic. I am not going to speak about that. You know what

:02:05.:02:09.

happened against Kilmarnock before, so we will put that on the back-

:02:09.:02:13.

burner and concentrate on the next game. Well played, absolutely

:02:13.:02:19.

brilliant, congratulations. Thank you. The Bolton and Kilmarnock

:02:20.:02:26.

manages are with us in the studio. So that is who you are facing in a

:02:26.:02:31.

couple of months. They work really hard today. It was a great advert

:02:31.:02:35.

for Scottish football. The way that Falkirk tried to get it down and

:02:35.:02:40.

move it. For a First Division team to come up against Celtic and play

:02:40.:02:44.

with that courage, I was very impressed with Falkirk. And all

:02:44.:02:50.

credit to them. They came out in the second half and gave them what

:02:50.:02:57.

for an Celtic actually scored as a result of the free kick.

:02:57.:03:01.

Higginbotham has got a lot of mentions today and he gave them

great balance as he attacked. go back to Langdon Park and here

:03:13.:03:17.

How do you feel after that? Disappointed with the loss because

:03:17.:03:24.

we wanted to progress to the final and get the Cup. To come up against

:03:24.:03:27.

the Old Firm and put on a display like we did, at times we were on

:03:27.:03:32.

top, and we have shown good football. At times I had a lot of

:03:32.:03:36.

possession. I thought we gave as good as we got. So many young

:03:36.:03:40.

players in the Falkirk team. What do you take from an experience like

:03:40.:03:45.

this? Some of us will probably never get this game again in our

:03:45.:03:48.

careers. The gaffer said to us at the beginning of the game to savour

:03:48.:03:51.

the moment and go out and express yourselves and I think we did that

:03:51.:03:57.

today. You looked like you were enjoying yourself. Definitely. I

:03:57.:04:00.

got man-of-the-match which proved that I played well. I have to keep

:04:00.:04:05.

doing that. I hope we can play against them next year if we get

:04:05.:04:10.

promoted. What was the mood in the dressing room when you got promoted

:04:10.:04:14.

and you pulled that goal that? thought we could give them problems

:04:14.:04:17.

in the second half but they got but other goal, which killed off the

:04:17.:04:26.

game. They had lots of possession as well. I think our fans will be

:04:26.:04:30.

proud of us. What is your objective for the rest of the season? They

:04:41.:04:45.

Then it is the Scottish Cup. are the man of the match.

:04:45.:04:55.
:04:55.:04:55.

Not a local lad, judging by the accent, but he is going places.

:04:55.:04:59.

Falkirk will want to keep hold of her but I imagine he can move up

:04:59.:05:03.

based on that. If he brings out that performance consistently, he

:05:03.:05:08.

has lots of miles. He was terrific from start to finish. Even when he

:05:08.:05:12.

was tired he had the composure to get on the ball, try and pass, move

:05:12.:05:17.

it. He sees the passes, an intelligent player. They have not

:05:17.:05:22.

finished. They have to push on in the league and try and catch the

:05:22.:05:26.

next team. With players like that in the team they have every chance.

:05:26.:05:31.

I think they have been terrific. There was nearly a chance at the

:05:31.:05:37.

start of the second half for Falkirk. If they have got that, who

:05:37.:05:42.

knows how the game would have panned out? But Celtic took their

:05:42.:05:46.

goals very well, to their credit. Falkirk recovered from a daft

:05:46.:05:50.

moment when they allowed Celtic to get ahead by conceding the penalty.

:05:50.:05:58.

I don't think that Falkirk have read the script. Steven Pressley

:05:58.:06:06.

will not agree with that! We will find out. That is not good marking.

:06:07.:06:13.

It is rugby not football. Celtic will do what they have to do. They

:06:13.:06:18.

have got class, going forward, and finishing. A lovely penalty kick

:06:18.:06:23.

there. Celtic's finishing was probably the difference between the

:06:23.:06:28.

two teams. You might have thought they would stop cruising but they

:06:28.:06:34.

did not. No mistake from the penalty spot. It has been a weekend

:06:34.:06:39.

for proud fathers. Dean Shiels did the business for Kilmarnock

:06:39.:06:42.

yesterday and Steve Fulton was looking on at 17 year-old Jay

:06:42.:06:49.

Fulton, scoring with amazing composure. This was great. As I

:06:49.:06:58.

said at half-time. In a remarkable position. Great presence of mind.

:06:58.:07:03.

Fantastic. His father should be very proud of him and rightly so,

:07:03.:07:11.

at that age. What vision from Higginbotham. Higginbotham in the

:07:11.:07:15.

past, you can be lucky and have a good game, but you don't get lucky

:07:15.:07:25.
:07:25.:07:29.

and do that sort of thing. That his talent. That was performance. That

:07:29.:07:34.

is precision passing. Such a composed finish. Fantastic to see.

:07:34.:07:40.

He will get a few more handshakes. Would it have been greedy if Jay

:07:40.:07:43.

Fulton had scored again? There was some chance at the beginning of the

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:07:59.

second half. Higginbotham again on composer. He stands on the ball, a

:07:59.:08:08.

little trick. I think that puts Jay Fulton of. If he keeps his head

:08:08.:08:18.
:08:18.:08:20.

over the ball, then it would be too -1 Falkirk and then who knows? --

:08:20.:08:26.

2-1. You have to take your chances. It is tough to do that on the side

:08:26.:08:32.

of your foot but it was a great opportunity. He is in at the back

:08:32.:08:37.

post trying to score. You'll never fault them trying to score goals

:08:37.:08:42.

and being in the danger area. hit the crossbar twice, with the

:08:42.:08:46.

help of a hand from Kieran Duffie. And there was a penalty claims

:08:46.:08:52.

against Murray Wallace in the scrummage that followed. That is

:08:53.:08:57.

certainly not intentional for May. It is hitting straight against him

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:09.

from a very short distance. I think if things had gone another way,

:09:09.:09:16.

Neil Lennon could have been very angry today. In my opinion, that is

:09:16.:09:21.

not a penalty. That second one is not but they could be a claim of

:09:21.:09:24.

the second one because the ball is deflected onto the bar. But

:09:24.:09:31.

certainly not the second instance. This shows the angle well. That is

:09:31.:09:41.
:09:41.:09:43.

going in the net. You probably do give that add a penalty kick. -- as

:09:43.:09:49.

a penalty kick. I don't think that his hand to ball. In the middle of

:09:49.:09:54.

all that, I think Thomas Rogne had a good game. Everybody went for

:09:54.:09:58.

Higginbotham as man-of-the-match, but he did well and he has

:09:58.:10:02.

fulfilled that role that Celtic have struggled with for some time.

:10:02.:10:06.

We were talking about El Alagui before the game but he did not get

:10:06.:10:12.

much of a sniff. Two penalty claims but neither upheld, and then they

:10:12.:10:20.

were 2-1 up after that free kick. Great effort from Anthony Stokes.

:10:20.:10:29.

Can you fold Martin may govern? -- Michael McGovern? I don't think you

:10:29.:10:35.

can fault him, he is a top-class goalkeeper. He jumps in the air and

:10:35.:10:40.

delays for that millisecond. By the time he is down, the ball is

:10:40.:10:43.

already moving and he might have been able to go over it. Having

:10:43.:10:48.

said that, he had a terrific game and he made some good saves. Celtic

:10:48.:10:52.

had some good chances. He is a young goalkeeper and there is a

:10:53.:10:59.

learning curve. That team will learn from this and be better from

:10:59.:11:07.

it. That goal scorer is important to Celtic. He is just natural. The

:11:07.:11:11.

fact that he jumped up, on his way down as he struck it, that took the

:11:11.:11:16.

emphasis out of his movement and he could not get across in time. It is

:11:16.:11:21.

nit-picking a bit, but I think he has done well today, Michael. He

:11:21.:11:30.

cannot do much with Anthony Stokes when he sniffs around that box.

:11:30.:11:34.

After that free kick, he did very well to sniff that one out as well.

:11:34.:11:39.

That was it. I think the script writer's plan was for Darren Dods

:11:39.:11:43.

to score the equaliser that took the tie into extra-time. He tried

:11:43.:11:53.
:11:53.:11:56.

his best. It was a great opportunity. Some would say that I

:11:56.:12:03.

did not see it coming. But it was very good goalkeeping. Good

:12:03.:12:08.

goalkeeping from the big man. Maybe not always the best at coming out

:12:08.:12:12.

and attacking the ball when it is in the air, but the size of him,

:12:12.:12:19.

the greatness. Great double save at an important time. Bailey said that

:12:19.:12:27.

Fraser Forster is growing into the job. I don't think that as Celtic

:12:27.:12:30.

goalkeeper there is any hiding place. We have always said this,

:12:30.:12:38.

but it is one thing to be a good player in a provincial club, but it

:12:38.:12:42.

is another to play for Glasgow team. You need the ability but also the

:12:42.:12:46.

mental strength. That is sometimes why players do not succeed because

:12:46.:12:49.

they don't have the mental qualities to go along with their

:12:49.:12:53.

other attributes. It is the huge honour to play for Celtic and

:12:53.:13:03.

Rangers. Celtic threatened to score again. That would have been really

:13:03.:13:13.
:13:13.:13:13.

harsh on Falkirk. Terribly harsh. The defending gets a bit tight, but

:13:13.:13:19.

a good understanding there. Acknowledgement that if you put it

:13:19.:13:23.

between the centre-back and the goalkeeper, you know that your mate

:13:23.:13:30.

Anthony Stokes will be there. He knew that area. Because Gary Hooper

:13:30.:13:34.

knows that area and Anthony Stokes knows it, they do it for each other.

:13:34.:13:44.
:13:44.:13:45.

Great play. Anthony Stokes's desire to get in and score, because

:13:45.:13:49.

sometimes it is difficult to hold on to what you have got at 2-1.

:13:49.:13:58.

That is what they did, tried to kill the game, and so it proved.

:13:58.:14:04.

He watched the second half in the stands. Steven Pressley is with

:14:04.:14:08.

Jonathan. Commiserations, 3-1 defeat, but

:14:08.:14:14.

such a young side with such promise. What is your overriding feeling

:14:15.:14:19.

about the performance? I think their performance was terrific. We

:14:19.:14:22.

came here with a real belief in our system of play and the way we go

:14:22.:14:27.

about things. Over the 90 minutes, players can go away from here

:14:27.:14:32.

exceptionally proud. We passed the ball brilliantly at times. Some

:14:32.:14:39.

switches of play, passing between the lines, I was delighted. Great

:14:39.:14:45.

passing. I thought we gave them one hell of a game. Your reaction when

:14:45.:14:49.

that goal went in just before half- time said it all. What was the

:14:49.:14:53.

atmosphere in the dressing-room at half-time? Was there a real sense

:14:53.:14:59.

that you could do it? Yes. I think it was similar to the game against

:14:59.:15:03.

Rangers and Falkirk Stadium. When you get there at half-time and you

:15:03.:15:06.

are in the game, as we very much work, there is that sense of belief

:15:06.:15:10.

that you can go on and do it. We started that game in the second

:15:10.:15:14.

half very well. Celtic were under pressure. There was fluency to

:15:14.:15:19.

their passing and I was really excited. Once again a controversial

:15:19.:15:22.

decision changed the game. I have to ask you about what happened at

:15:22.:15:26.

half-time. You ended up in the stand. Can you tell us what

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:38.

penalty kick. I have not seen the penalty. I asked if it had been

:15:38.:15:43.

given in the other box. That's a question to you. But, I am

:15:43.:15:46.

disappointed. Very disappointed, because when you play against the

:15:46.:15:51.

old firm, you definitely need factors like that to go for you.

:15:51.:15:55.

Unfortunately today they didn't. You feel with referees the big

:15:55.:16:00.

decisions go the big team's way? am not saying that. In reflection

:16:00.:16:05.

of today's game, there was some big decisions made. I felt,

:16:05.:16:10.

unfortunately for ourselves, they didn't go our way. What are the

:16:10.:16:14.

object -- objectives for the rest of the season? Progressing. I look

:16:14.:16:19.

at us from the July kick-off and the performances of my team now. I

:16:19.:16:25.

can ask no more from these group of players. Have been progressive. We

:16:25.:16:30.

set new targets for this season. We will continue to do that. All I ask

:16:30.:16:35.

is progression. I have seen that in abundance. Thank you. You know him

:16:35.:16:40.

well. Will he be embarrassed about his reaction to the penalty being

:16:40.:16:43.

given? He is still obviously furious? Obviously he made

:16:43.:16:47.

reference to that as well. I would have hoped if it had happened in

:16:47.:16:51.

the box, I am sure the penalty would have been given. Darren Dods

:16:51.:16:56.

is a good player. Had a very good career. It is inexcusable what he

:16:56.:17:00.

did. Sometimes you have to give it up

:17:00.:17:04.

and hope another team-mate will bail you out. I think to drag him

:17:04.:17:09.

to the ground. He reflects on it and realises it is a penalty. He is

:17:09.:17:14.

a young manager. He has passion and every desire to do well for Falkirk.

:17:14.:17:18.

That will stand him in good steed. Sometimes that pain makes you

:17:18.:17:23.

stronger. Is it worth mentioning the fact that everything else he

:17:23.:17:29.

said you will absolutely agree with? Yes. He said he was well

:17:29.:17:38.

between the -- passed it terrific. I would agree with every single

:17:38.:17:42.

word. Celtic scored a very good goal. It was on-side. It is not

:17:42.:17:46.

easy when they came back off the post, goalkeepers to have that

:17:46.:17:49.

composure and slam it in the net, as he did.

:17:50.:17:54.

Every motion of that - so I think he was a bit harsh there. As I say,

:17:54.:18:00.

we all do that on the spur of the moment. You finish the game, your

:18:00.:18:03.

team has performed admirally. Of course you will say some things out

:18:03.:18:07.

of context. You are passionate. You care about the game. There's no

:18:07.:18:11.

doubt he will go on to be a good manager. When the dust settles is

:18:12.:18:17.

there much that satisfied managers, Falkirk did themselves justice in

:18:17.:18:22.

what they put into the game. think Stephen will go away a very

:18:22.:18:25.

proud man and how his team played, I thought they were exceptional.

:18:25.:18:31.

They stuck at it and played really, really good football. And the

:18:31.:18:35.

penalty, it would not have been given in Italy or Europe. It is

:18:35.:18:42.

given here. Certainly, as Owen says the goal was never off-side. One

:18:42.:18:47.

bounced the other. I could see he was disappointed for the boys

:18:47.:18:57.

because they had done so much. Celtic, they have Higginbotham and

:18:57.:19:03.

Stokes. Two top-class finers. They will always -- finishers. They will

:19:03.:19:07.

always hurt you at some stage in the game. I thought they were going

:19:07.:19:13.

to get another one near the end, which would have taken in a true

:19:13.:19:17.

reflection of the game. Celtic had enough quality to win the game.

:19:17.:19:23.

That is how it panned out. We will look at the first league cup semi-

:19:23.:19:30.

final from yesterday. Air united against Kilmarnock.

:19:30.:19:40.
:19:40.:19:57.

thousands to make themselves heard He was picked out beautifully by

:19:58.:20:01.

Dayton. Not sure if he was going for the goal here. Looked to be

:20:01.:20:05.

heading to the back of the net, but for the intervention of the Ayr

:20:06.:20:15.
:20:16.:20:51.

He denies first of all James Dayton - a powerful effort, beaten away.

:20:51.:20:58.

It looks like Harkins would score. He stuck the leg out to divert it

:20:58.:21:08.
:21:08.:21:17.

A moment of real class by Dean Shiels.

:21:17.:21:27.
:21:27.:21:42.

It has been matched by the save of few minutes he's had! First Shiels,

:21:42.:21:52.
:21:52.:21:52.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 45 seconds

:21:52.:22:35.

then Pascali. Cuthbert!

:22:35.:22:45.
:22:45.:23:02.

He's kept out everything that has just a yard or so wide of the far

:23:02.:23:08.

post. Malone was exposed here.

:23:08.:23:18.
:23:18.:23:36.

through comes for Kilmarnock. It's heartbreak for Ayr United. There's

:23:37.:23:46.
:23:47.:23:49.

joy for Dean Shiels -- for Shiels and Kilmarnock. It looked like it

:23:49.:23:53.

would never come. Kevin Cuthbert could not keep them out forever.

:23:53.:23:57.

Perhaps he should have gathered that one. Who can fault him for the

:23:57.:24:07.
:24:07.:24:39.

work he's put in this afternoon. touching distance of that trophy.

:24:39.:24:47.

You want an early hold? I won't touch it. You had a blast at Ayr

:24:47.:24:50.

United afterwards. The manager thought they were disrespectful.

:24:50.:24:55.

That is what they put in the paper. Is that not what he said. It is not

:24:55.:24:59.

a blast. It is how you say it. I said if they had come out with a

:24:59.:25:05.

better game, I was disace pointed in the tactics. He is a super guy.

:25:05.:25:10.

He does a good job with Ayr United. Do these pictures confirm - that it

:25:11.:25:14.

was constant rear-guard action? When you are asked a question from

:25:14.:25:17.

the Scottish media, it was in response to a question I was asked.

:25:17.:25:22.

I was asked, did you feel Ayr could have come out and led more of a

:25:22.:25:26.

festival? I said, I was disappointed in how they set it up.

:25:26.:25:31.

You said they came looking for penalties, didn't you? Exactly. In

:25:31.:25:35.

my opinion I did. -- they did. Look how many players

:25:35.:25:41.

were inside the box there. Almost ten within a six-yard box. It holds

:25:41.:25:47.

up your argument. That happened a great deal of times during the game.

:25:47.:25:53.

For me when we played Celtic we came out. We are not Barcelona. We

:25:53.:25:58.

are not massively, massively better than Ayr United. I feel, maybe in

:25:58.:26:04.

hindsight, it could have come out. When they came out they had a

:26:04.:26:08.

chance. In injury time at the end of the game they came out and had

:26:08.:26:11.

another chance. We're not the world's greatest team. You know,

:26:11.:26:18.

they have to come out and get advice. Fantastic for you to take

:26:18.:26:22.

Kilmarnock into the final. The icing on the cake must be your son

:26:22.:26:26.

scores the winning goal. He is a player. In the team he's another

:26:26.:26:32.

player. But, yes, inside me I think, he's my son, it's great he has the

:26:32.:26:39.

goal. There's no press didge there. It doesn't matter who scores at

:26:39.:26:44.

that prejudice there. It doesn't matter who scores at that stage. I

:26:44.:26:51.

was pleased for the supporters, for the chairman. Were you thanking

:26:51.:27:01.

somebody upstairs there? Yes. The chairman is overlooked for the

:27:01.:27:05.

work he does. He works really hard for the club. Every decision is in

:27:05.:27:09.

the best interest of the club. I'm really pleased to work for

:27:09.:27:17.

Kilmarnock. Celtic are through to play

:27:17.:27:22.

Kilmarnock. Here's Neil Lennon. It was maybe not all plain-sailing,

:27:22.:27:25.

but the victory, you must be delighted to get into that final?

:27:25.:27:31.

They are never plain-sailing. I am delighted for the team. 3-1, people

:27:31.:27:35.

might say that they deserved better. Looking from our point of view we

:27:35.:27:45.
:27:45.:27:45.

missed so many chances. We hit the bar twice. We hit the post. We

:27:45.:27:51.

could have won the game more comfortably without playing at our

:27:51.:27:55.

brilliant best. It is difficult semi-finals. In the best of

:27:55.:27:59.

conditions we held up well today. I think it contributed for a good

:27:59.:28:03.

game. One thing I will say about semi-finals here, is sometimes it

:28:03.:28:08.

leaves a good atmosphere, such a big atmosphere. You have maybe

:28:08.:28:14.

20,000 people missing, it lacks that bit of snap to the game.

:28:14.:28:18.

stand behind you. Sometimes you cut a frustrated figure with the

:28:18.:28:24.

figures N the end Anthony Stokes coming up trumps for you. Yes. He's

:28:24.:28:29.

been working, we have worked with him on free-kicks. He puts too much

:28:29.:28:34.

on them. That was definitely his range today. Thankfully he found

:28:34.:28:40.

the precision and the quality to score. Anthony is in the right

:28:40.:28:44.

place. I had a wee chat with him on Thursday. I said I wanted more from

:28:44.:28:49.

him because his overall game has not been there. Anthony is always

:28:49.:28:55.

going to score goals. We want to contribute more to the team.

:28:55.:29:00.

don't want to miss the final, back in Hampden in seven weeks' time. It

:29:00.:29:08.

is Kilmarnock against Celtic. That is on Sunday, 18th March.

:29:08.:29:12.

Kenny said earlier on that must send out a positive message about

:29:12.:29:16.

what the likes of Falkirk, just as an example, what they are doing t

:29:16.:29:25.

type of players they are producing. For me, I am delighted. We are

:29:25.:29:29.

always promoting Scottish football. I think as a nation we dwell too

:29:29.:29:36.

much on the negative. There is a lot of positive about it. I have

:29:36.:29:41.

seen some terrific young players in Celtic as well. There is a lot to

:29:41.:29:43.

look forward to in Scottish football. We concentrate on the

:29:43.:29:50.

negative all the time. The Celtic fans will probably throw things at

:29:50.:29:55.

the TV saying speak about us. They did get the job done. It was a

:29:55.:30:05.
:30:05.:30:07.

professional performance, wasn't To be fair, they have the weapon

:30:07.:30:12.

free to win the match and they achieved that but Falkirk have the

:30:12.:30:17.

weaponry for a very good game of football. It was more competitive

:30:17.:30:21.

than yesterday and that is down to the approach and Howard Falkirk

:30:21.:30:29.

applied themselves and how they wanted to attack at times. -- how

:30:29.:30:33.

Falkirk applied themselves. They kept the ball up the pitch, compact,

:30:33.:30:38.

intricate play. But Celtic have equality at the top of the pitch,

:30:38.:30:41.

and that was a difference, the big difference. With Gary Hooper and

:30:41.:30:45.

Anthony Stokes there, there will always be chances that are

:30:45.:30:52.

converted and they did that. D Day Neil Lennon's point about a lack of

:30:52.:30:57.

atmosphere of not working from their point of view? -- do you take

:30:57.:31:04.

the point? Yes, we always play better in a good atmosphere. He

:31:04.:31:07.

said they did not play at their brilliant best, which was

:31:07.:31:16.

wonderfully one -- honest, but the two players up front will always

:31:16.:31:20.

score and create chances. It ended up right in the end, with the right

:31:20.:31:25.

final, that will be exciting. We do mention Falkirk for a number of

:31:25.:31:30.

reasons. Like a lot of clubs in Scotland, Kilmarnock, St Mirren,

:31:30.:31:35.

they take the ball down, and I think play the game in other right

:31:36.:31:42.

way and an enjoyable way. It is good football if we all buy into it.

:31:42.:31:51.

I was delighted to see that. If they do get into the SPL, then they

:31:51.:31:55.

will be a real edition. I cannot lose the opportunity to talk about

:31:55.:32:00.

Bolton. What about the Premier League? How things turned round

:32:00.:32:03.

after a difficult spell? There is no doubt that it was a slow spell

:32:03.:32:08.

and we know why, with 10 players injured. When your best players are

:32:08.:32:12.

missing it is always difficult. We had a horrendous start in terms of

:32:12.:32:20.

the fixture, playing five of the top six. And when you lose games,

:32:20.:32:26.

confidence is King in football, and your players lose confidence bit by

:32:26.:32:29.

bit. We had a good run before Christmas and we have to continue

:32:29.:32:35.

that. We got a couple back from injury, which helped. And we will

:32:35.:32:38.

get some transfers before the window closes on Tuesday so we have

:32:38.:32:42.

a lot to look forward to for the second half of the season. It was

:32:42.:32:45.

always going to be a season of tradition because of what we were

:32:45.:32:49.

trying to do. We have to make sure that we cake on and do ourselves

:32:49.:32:55.

justice. Good luck. It has been good to have your company. I am

:32:55.:33:01.

back later tonight for my night shift at 10 o'clock on BBC Two. The

:33:01.:33:07.

highlights of both the semi-finals. This weekend coming up it is all

:33:07.:33:12.

Falkirk v Celtic

Kick-off 3pm

Live from Hampden Park.

Two young managers go head-to-head at Hampden with a place in the League Cup Final at stake. Neil Lennon takes his Celtic side to the National Stadium with a domestic treble firmly in his sights. The Glasgow giants are in the midst of a battle for the SPL title, they're safely into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup and a win today will bring them back here on Sunday March 18th.

However, if Celtic are to make the final they will have to defeat a First Division team who have already knocked two SPL sides out of this competition. Steven Pressley's Falkirk defeated Rangers 3-2 in the third round with a dramatic last minute winner and followed that up with an extra-time and penalties victory over Dundee Utd in the next round.

Plus highlights of yesterday's semi-final between Ayr Utd and Kilmarnock

Introduced by Rob Maclean, with Pat Nevin and special guest Bolton manager Owen Coyle Commentary from Liam McLeod and Billy Dodds.
