FERGUSON SETS UP DREAM CELTIC TIE FOR ALBION ROVERS

0

CELTIC will travel to Coatbridge in the Scottish Cup after Calum Ferguson’s stoppage-time winner for Albion Rovers against Queen of the South last night.

The Cliftonhill outfit were reduced to 10 men before grinding out a 2-1 triumph in a hard-fought third-round tie.
The plucky part-timers took the lead after only 16 minutes through Mick Dunlop’s header, but Jamie Hamill equalised for their Championship visitors with 14 minutes remaining.

The League One outfit’s cause appeared to be doomed when Ryan Wallace was shown a second yellow card with three minutes left.

However, Ferguson finished the game from close range in the final seconds after a quick break to inflict a sixth defeat in seven games on a Queens side still seeking a new manager.

Brendan Rodgers’ men, fresh from their Betfred League Cup success over Aberdeen, will face the part-timers on their own ground in late January – although there could be a late switch of venue to accommodate the large crowd.
Lawrence Shankland scored twice as St Mirren overcame Lowland League outfit Spartans 5-1, while East Fife drew 1-1 at home to Edinburgh City.

Ayr United won 1-0 away to Brechin City to set up a Somerset Park meeting with Queen’s Park after the Hampden men beat Montrose 2-0.
