Celtic FC lost their grip on the Scottish Cup after Aberdeen striker Darren Mackie scored the only goal of the game to give the Dons a dramatic 1-0 replay victory.

The holders dominated the entire match but were made to pay for missed chances as Jimmy Calderwood’s side grabbed a shock winner in the second half.

Aberdeen will now go on to meet Queen of the South in the semi-final, while Celtic are left to concentrate on the challenge of trying to retain the SPL title.


Their performance was dreadful. They just couldnt finish. 'Nuff said.
