A review of Tuesday night's action in the Scottish League Cup.

Dougie Imrie's dramatic extra-time penalty gave Morton a shock 1-0 Scottish League Cup third-round win over Celtic at Parkhead.

Five minutes into the extra period after a stalemate during normal time, the Ton midfielder scored from the spot after referee Bobby Madden adjudged Celtic defender Efe Ambrose to have handled when challenging substitute Archie Campbell.

Celtic, who had been lacklustre for most of the game, put pressure on the Morton box in an attempt to get back level and Charlie Mulgrew hit the post in the final seconds.

Liam Craig completed his first ever hat-trick as Hibernian clinched a Scottish League Cup quarter-final slot with a 5-3 win over Stranraer.

The former St Johnstone midfielder kept a clear head to net a fine treble with Abdellah Zoubir also netting for Hibs in addition to a Scott Rumsby own goal.

Jamie Longworth and Chris Aitken scored for Stranraer with a Michael Nelson own goal following.

Billy McKay netted his seventh goal of the season to send Inverness into last eight with a 1-0 win over Dundee.

McKay had already threatened with a shot over the bar before giving Caley Thistle a ninth-minute lead at Dens Park as they bounced back from their first defeat of the season against Aberdeen.

Stevie May returned to haunt former club Hamilton as he bagged a double to send St Johnstone into the quarter-finals with a 3-0 victory.

May, who spent last season on loan with Accies, grabbed the opener early on in the tie at New Douglas Park.

Gwion Edwards then came off the bench to claim his first goal for the club late on, before May struck again in injury-time.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
