CRAIG GORDON’S dream comeback continued with the 2-0 win over Dundee United.
The keeper, whose career was in jeopardy for two years through serious injury, was clearly emotional after he picked up his winner’s medal.
The 32-year-old, who won a Scottish Cup medal with Hearts in 2006, admitted: “I never thought this day would come again. It’s just brilliant.
“It was great to get the opportunity to play football again, but to turn out in a Cup Final and win is something else altogether.
“And to pick up the trophy without conceding a goal in the tournament is a thing of dreams for all goalkeepers.
“Honestly, I didn’t think this would come around again. But I gave it my best shot and I was lucky to be good enough to get back into the game.
“It’s just amazing to be to be involved in this. We’ve won the first of the three domestic trophies and we meet United again in the Scottish Cup replay in midweek.
“It’s just a question ¬†of getting ready to go once more.”
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
