Speechless and frustrated, Celtic, the boys in green, trooped off the pitch at Hampden Park, Glasgow this afternoon. They have lost in the Scottish Cup semi final to Ross County.
Downed 2 - 0 by a team of teuchters (please note this IS the correct usage of the word) from a small town of 5,000 inhabitants way in the north of Scotland. In fact it is the most northerly football team in the major leagues in the UK.
Football enthusiasts, across the globe, will search in vain for the town of Ross County as there isn't one. The town they are looking for is Dingwall.
Ross County were founded in 1929 and play their home games at Victoria Park, Dingwall. The ground capacity is 6310.
Known as the "Staggies", their club badge is in the shape of a Caberfeidh or Stags Head. The Caberfeidh is also worn by the Seaforth Highlanders.
They will be celebrating in Dingwall all weekend.
My weekend will be made when Dundee United lose to Raith Rovers in the other semi tomorrow.
