Earlier today, we asked you how much you could remember about past associations with teams from the Highlands in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.

Now we repeat the questions and provide the answers.

CHEERS BEFORE THE TEARS…Mark Burchill is congratulated by Lubomir Moravcik and Eyal Berkovic after netting against Inverness Caley Thistle in February 2000. (See Question 1.)


1: One of the most infamous results in Celtic’s history came in a 3-1 Scottish Cup defeat from Inverness Caley Thistle at Parkhead on February 8 2000. Who was the Celtic goalscorer that dark evening in the east end of Glasgow?

2: Who was the Hoops manager who departed in the fall-out of the sensational result?

3: Celtic overcame Inverness Thistle – before their amalgamation with neighbours Caley – in a Scottish Cup-tie in Glasgow during a 6-0 romp in February 1985. A Hoops midfielder fired in a hat-trick. Can you name him?

4: Another Celtic star collected all the goals as the Hoops won a Scottish Cup-tie 3-0 at Peterhead in January 2012. Who was the marksman?

5: Amazingly, there was another hat-trickster when Celtic beat Caley Thistle 6-0 at Parkhead in February 2017. Can you remember his name?

HIGHLAND FLING ONE…Paul McStay thumps in one of his hat-trick in Celtic’s 6-0 win over Inverness Thistle in 1985. (See Question 3.)

HIGHLAND FLING TWO…Anthony Stokes swoops to net one of his trio against Peterhead in 2012. (See Question 4.)

HIGHLAND FLING THREE…Moussa Dembele celebrates his thresome against Inverness Caley Thistle in 2017. (See Question 5.)
