CELTIC visit the Borders this weekend (weather permitting) to play Gala Fairydean Rovers in a Lowland League fixture.

And this is likely to bring back some happy memories for the Gala management team of Martin Scott and Steve Craig who not only took part in took part in a game considered to be one of the biggest Scottish Cup upsets of all time, but scored the goals for Ross County that knocked out the Glasgow giants.

No-one apart from Derek Adams and his players gave the Staggies any hope of progressing to the 2011 final when they were drawn to play Celtic at Hampden.

Caretaker boss Neil Lennon’s team kicked off as huge favourites but early in the second-half the Victoria Park side took a stunning lead as Craig cut in from the right and produced a scything run through the Celtic defence and kept his composure to lash the ball past Lukasz Zaluska

It was a goal worthy of winning any game, but more was to come.

County had to survive an onslaught as Celtic fought desperately to save their season, but they held firm.

Then in the dying minutes the tireless Scott sealed their fate after starting the move then getting on the end of an Andy Barrowman cross to net County’s second, sparking a mass exodus from the Celtic fans and wild celebrations among the Dingwall side's 7,000 fans - more than the population of the town that houses the club who moved up from the Highland League to the Scottish Football League in 1994.

Earlier this week Craig said: “It was a magical day. Me and Jimmy (Martin Scott) ran the show. 

"Derek Adams was manager at the time and he had us so well drilled. Our game plan worked a treat. It was Neil Lennon’s first game in charge. Georgios Samaras and Aiden McGeady kept switching wings so we knew they were struggling. Robbie Keane was up front.

"I’ve watched the game two or three times right through. It was a bit of a stalemate then we scored after about 50-60 minutes then we kind of huffed and puffed a wee bit, but they never really asked any questions.

"Mick (McGovern) didn’t really have to make any saves.

“The break away in the 88th minute. We go down the right and Barra (Andy Barrowman) did brilliant to find Jimmy. It’s just great memories. You always want people to recognise the performance rather than just the result sometimes and our performance that day merited the win.

“To score in the last five minutes and to beat the champions at the time 2-0 was a fantastic day. It was one of those days where everything clicked for us. My dad (Joe Craig) was at the game and had a connection with Celtic and I just remember after the game looking up at the stand and I saw him and he was just standing with his hands in the air.”

Scott added: “Stevie’s goal was unbelievable. It really was and we had a wee guy called Andy Barrowman to do our running.”
