Ross County stun Celtic to reach final
Monday 12 April 2010
Ross County produced one of the biggest shocks in Scottish Cup history on Saturday to see off Celtic 2-0 and reach the final where they will play Dundee United. County's keeper, Michael McGovern, expected to be busier during the semi-final win at Hampden on Saturday, but the former Hoops player was virtually a spectator at times as the First Division side more than matched the Glasgow giants.
Even an expected Hoops' onslaught after Steven Craig put the Dingwall side ahead in the 54th minute failed to materialise and, aside from saving a Marc-Antoine Fortuné strike from close range, he watched the Staggies defence hold firm until Martin Scott scored a dramatic late clincher.
"It was unbelievable," the Irishman said. "It must be one of the biggest shocks ever and, to say the least, I am happy."
In the second semi-final, Dundee United dumped out Raith Rovers with goals from David Goodwillie and Andy Webster either side of the break, meaning Ross County are likely to play European football next season, provided United's form holds long enough to secure a Europa League spot.
