Couldn't make it tonight which was a pity. Sky sports said it was Mick who scored the first. Cracking result and I doubt Celtic will fancy a game on our wee bumpy pitch - not having a go at the grounds people by the way. Would be brilliant to take them to a replay and get some decent cash from all of that.
Absolutely fantastic result and great move leading up to the goal at the end. We weathered the storm before our goal and defended well. Well done to all the players. Great achievement to beat another championship team. Delighted for Callum Ferguson to get the goal after being out injured for so long. Well done to Darren for bringing him on. Gutted for Ryan Wallace that he will miss Celtic game after the sending off. He played really well tonight. Delighted for Ronnie and the board as the cash from the Celtic game will definitely help our financial situation. Great night to be a Rovers Fan!
Superb performance tonight throughout the team, well done boys! Defended well against a good footballing team. The goal at the end was well worked and well deserved and the celebrations were almost as good! First goal was from a McBride corner and Mick Dunlop downward header into the corner of the net. We defended it under some constant pressure at times and hit quickly on the break. Midfield worked tirelessly shutting down, to be fair the whole game. Bring on the tic!
Special special night at the San siro. I thought when they equalised the inevitable would follow but these boys do not know when they are beat. Time and time again they exceed expectation. Was hoping upon hope we'd hold out for the replay. How naive of me. Outstanding effort from every player. Dreamland and it's thoroughly deserved.
Delighted for all concerned with the club. Time to reactivate the '#dare to dream'. Celebrations at the end were superb. May need to get the structural engineers in tomorrow as I'm sure the old lady that is cliftonhill shook for a few moments.
A fine and fitting tribute to Davie Provan as well. Bring on the celtic !!!!!
Couldn't make it tonight due to work, but....... I think that's the best Christmas present that the club could have had. Shame it's not at Celtic Park first. Oh well just have to take them to a replay.
unbelievable scenes at the end - probably the best ever, been supporting the Rovers for nearly 40 years and ! not like us to score the 94th min winner with ten men against a very decent full time team .... bring on the Celtic !
well done all - every player, all 3 subs set the winning goal up. Chaiman, board, groundsman ( pitch was superb tonight) Ross Stewart deservedly man of the match etc etc etc... Sheer joy by everyone at the end and some champagne in Owens afterwards ! ! ! YAS ! cheers DH !

Please get me the no. for forums anonymous!
Amid the quiet and dignified celebrations after we scored the winning goal I couldn't help but realise how much that result meant to the club. I don't just mean in monetary terms although that is very important but I couldn't help recognise the faces I have seen making their way back to the bus or their cars after a midweek defeat at Elgin or Peterhead,who have stuck by the club through thin and thinner,who come along to home and away games without fail, who turn up unheralded on occasions to do work around the ground, who produce programmes etc , etc, etc. On behalf of the club , thanks to each and everyone of you and the joy of last night belongs to you.
The last 5 years have brought a period of success to the club and let us savour these times and special memories like last night. I certainly will.
The players and management team deserve a huge amount of credit for sticking to the task last night.Well done to Darren, Billy, Tony and Lindsay for all their hard work in preparing the team.
Apart from the scenes at the end 3 other memories stand out from last evening. Firstly the warm applause in memory of Davie Provan our former manager, the wonderful gesture from Alan Reid in handing over a cheque for over £500 he raised for the Kieran McDade Foundation and the dignified and genuine congratulations from the QOS board.There definitely is a bond in lower league football that binds us together.

Well done to all of the team last night. There were no weak links at all and everyone of them put in a shift. The scenes at the end were absolutely amazing and my voice is still sounding rough from the celebrating.
Nice wee highlights from Sky. I'm in such a good mood today I'm not even going to mention losing yet another goal from a fairly rudimentary ball into the box, hah!
How well does Calum Ferguson speak at the end of the clip? Comes across as an articulate young man.
It'll be good to see the Rovers being fussed over by the media in the build up to the game with Celtic. Great times for the guys. Also everyone will be keen to play in the game so that should mean we see plenty more decent individual performances over the coming weeks.
Any idea where the game is likely to be played? Would love to see it at Cliftonhill but obviously money talks........

I suspect if was only down to capacity we'd still play Tic at the Exsel Group Stadium but I don't think the police would allow it. The hill behind the ground would be awash and it's a safety nightmare. Airdrie, Motherwell or Hamilton or maybe even Broadwood but I think I'd prefer Airdrie if a deal can be done with the stadium owners who aren't the club.
What a superb advert for lower league football. The match was played at 100mph and it would be difficult to distinguish between which team was full time. I'm really pleased for the Club as the financial rewards to come will no doubt sort out the Club's financial situation. Especially pleased that we will be facing Celtic in Alan Reid's testimonial year. What a fitting climax for him. Surely he should be made team captain for that match. Also that's Brendan Rodgers hopes of a treble vanished !!!!!!
