  • (2 March 2020) – Highlights of the weekend’s Scottish Cup Quarter final Ties. Aberdeen, Celtic, Hearts and Hibs all progress to the Semi-Finals. **The following highlight videos are embedded via You Tube and are not hosted on this website** Visit The Scottish Cup You Tube Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClPCjayqAxV1ANqfACWdZqA St Johnstone 0-1 Celtic BBC REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51601998 Ryan Christie’s late goal booked holders Celtic’s a Scottish Cup semi-final date with Aberdeen at the expense of dogged St Johnstone in Perth. The midfielder’s free-kick from the right beat Zander Clark, with defender Christopher Jullien claiming a touch. Celtic had pummelled the hosts, Odsonne Edouard striking a post as they sought a 34th-straight domestic cup win. St Johnstone came close through Jamie McCart but ultimately failed to keep the dominant champions at bay. Neil Lennon’s side join Edinburgh clubs Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian as well as their last-four opponents as they pursue a fourth-consecutive domestic treble. St Mirren 0-2 Aberdeen BBC REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51595104 Aberdeen reached the Scottish Cup semi-final for the fifth time under Derek McInnes as they saw off St Mirren at the Simple Digital Arena. Lewis Ferguson’s early goal and Sam Cosgrove’s penalty were enough to seal Aberdeen’s place in the last four. The visitors raced out of the traps, but after their early goal were content to sit in and frustrate the home side. Jim Goodwin’s side could not find a way through Aberdeen’s sea of red shirts before Cosgrove’s late spot kick. Aberdeen now wait to find out who they will face in the draw which follows St Johnstone’s clash with Celtic on Sunday, with Hibernian and Heart of Midlothian already in the hat. Heart of Midlothian 1-0 Rangers BBC REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51595103 Hearts stunned Rangers for the second time this season to knock them out of the Scottish Cup in a fiery quarter-final at Tynecastle. Rangers, who were without Alfredo Morelos after he was dropped due to a disciplinary issue, suffered defeat away to the Premiership’s bottom side after also doing so last month. Oliver Bozanic drove Hearts ahead from a defensive mix-up, and they could have increased their lead in a strong showing that also saw Steven Naismith go close late on. Hearts, who had a goal disallowed in the first half for an extraordinary Loic Damour handball, will find out their opponents in Sunday’s semi-final draw, and they could be paired with Edinburgh rivals Hibernian after they beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Friday. Hibernian 5-2 Inverness Caledonian Thistle BBC REPORT: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51585973 A rampant Hibernian demolished Inverness Caledonian Thistle to storm into the Scottish Cup semi-finals. Adam Jackson, Scott Allan and Greg Docherty put the hosts 3-0 up at Easter Road after Paul Hanlon had been denied from the spot by Mark Ridgers. The Championship side pulled one back through Carl Tremarco, only for Brad Mckay to be sent off a minute later. Stephane Omeonga and Jamie Gullan added late strikes in an emphatic victory prior to Nikolay Todorov’s consolation.

St Mirren threw away a three-goal half-time lead before roaring back to beat Motherwell on penalties and clinch a Scottish Cup quarter-final place.

  • (26 Jun 2019) – BBC Report: Scotland are out of the Women’s World Cup after a twice-taken added-time penalty gave Argentina a dramatic draw. The Scots needed to win and Kim Little turned in their opener with Jen Beattie and Erin Cuthbert netting from corners. It was 3-2 after Milagros Menendez scored and a Florencia Bonsegundo shot went in via the bar and Lee Alexander. A VAR-awarded spot-kick taken by Bonsegundo was saved by Alexander but she was off her line and, agonisingly, the striker scored second time around. With 16 minutes to play, Shelley Kerr’s Scots were on course to be one of the four best third-placed sides going into Thursday’s final fixtures in Groups E and F but Argentina’s recovery consigned the Scots to bottom place in Group D. And Scotland captain Rachel Corsie was unhappy that referee Hyang-ok Ri allowed an Argentina free-kick to be taken while substitute Fiona Brown was coming on, with another substitute, Sophie Howard, ultimately penalised for her challenge on Aldana Cometti.
