Ross County - "You know who we are now"

This isn't a football blog but - Ross County 2 Celtic 0!

My phone went bonkers yesterday afternoon when the result came through. As a footballing bystander who would have thought to tune in to the Scottish Cup semi-final between Celtic and Ross County. A foregone conclusion surely?

That's how you miss sporting history, I suppose. And in sporting terms it is historic.

The SFA tried their utmost to kee Ross County and Inverness Caley out of the Scottish League for many years, citing Highland remoteness, andthe danger of lowering the standard of the game. Ha!

Inverness Caley are now top of Division one and Ross County join them as footballing giant killers.

I love Ross Country goalscorer Martin Scott's response to Robbie Keane, who said before the match that he had no idea who the Dingwall outfit were. "You know who we are now," said Scott.

Now Raith Rovers vs Dundee United today, that is a game I'll watch. Raith Rovers are the Prime Minister's team so it could have political as well as sporting consequences.
