THE BIG STORY: The aftermath of yesterday's 2-2 draw with Ross County goes on, firstly read our match report and player ratings on the game. The most conscientious incidents of course being Alex Schalk's last minute dive which lead to County's equaliser, which naturally Brendan Rodgers was livid about and Scott Brown's red card, which originally was going to rule him out of next week's Scottish Cup semi-final but now isn't as we've appealed it and the SFA can't hear the appeal until after the semi-final. Phew. Hilariously enough, yesterday's referee Don Robertson is going to be one of the additional assistant referees for next week''s game. The story will no doubt run and run.

SITE NEWS: Later on today our new series on Scottish Cup semi-final triumphs begins with a relatively recent seven goal thriller. Also, we'll be recording a Ross County fallout/Scottish Cup preview podcast with GIGPOD this week, links will be up when the pod's out.

OTHER NEWS: Looks like we're battling West Brom for Henry Onyekuru's signature in the summer.

ON THIS DAY: In 2011, Celtic reached the Scottish Cup Final after easily defeating notorious bottlejobs Aberdeen 4-0 in the semi-final. The game's biggest incident came after 18 minutes, when Andrew Considine was sent off for a last man foul on Gary Hooper. Unfortunately Langfield saved Stokes' penalty. The breakthrough came just after half time, when a Charlie Mulgrew free-kick eluded everybody and found its' way into the net. Goals from Ledley, Commons - a penalty - and Maloney completed the scoring.
