Five of the best Scottish Cup semis from the last decade

Semi-finals are often cagey affairs with neither side willing to try anything outrageous in fear that it could cost them a place in the final. Though the Scottish Cup is no different, there have been plenty examples through the years of teams going all hail-mary in an attempt to reach the national final.

Title so sweet for lifelong Hibs fan Darren McGregor

Darren McGregor hadn’t scored in a while. Not since last season’s Premiership play-off semi-final against Falkirk, in fact, and everyone at Easter Road remembers how that particular episode played out.

Hibernian are back in the big time

Dumbarton no more, Greenock no more, Paisley no more. At long last, the Easter Road faithful were saying goodbye to the Championship and conveniently the Hibernian-supporting Proclaimers had written a song capable of being re-worked as a sign-off.

Queen of the South determined to put Hibs party on hold

Queen of the South manager Gary Naysmith will always have strong links with Hearts, but he wants to beat their greatest rivals Hibernian today for the good of his Dumfries side as opposed to denying the Easter Road men a party. A win for Neil Lennon’s side over their visitors will see them crowned champions should Falkirk fail to see off resurgent St Mirren. Naysmith is out to stop the celebrations, but not for any tribal reasons.
