CELTIC will face Raith Rovers in the League Cup quarter-finals next month – after the Fifers dumped Scott Brown’s Aberdeen side.
The Hoops overcame Hearts 3-2 with goals from Odsonne Edouard, Stephen Welsh and Kyogo Furuhashi at Parkhead this afternoon.
But, earlier in the day, the Pittodrie side were sent crashing out of the trophy at Stark’s Park. They were a goal ahead at one stage before allowing the Fifers to fight back and earn the right to face Ange Postecoglou’s side in the last eight.
It was the Championship club’s first win over their visitors in 11 years and the first at home since 1995. The Dons had led through Jay Emmanuel-Thomas’s first goal for the club.
But second-half strikes from Ethon Varian and Dario Zanatta created a massive shock. Former Celtic captain and onfield leader Brown came on as a second-half substitute to try to steady the ship, but it was the Fifers’ day.
Dundee United are at home to Hibs, while Dundee face holders St Johnstone at Dens Park and Steven Gerrard’s team are at home to Livingston.
