@joshfairnie: “He still needs to go. Lottery of penalties can’t cover up a game where we have had 0 shots on target over 2 hours”

@Jackmcneill1875: “Think about it we will get destroyed in the semi as well so he will still be away it just means we have to suffer a bit longer but get a trip to Hampden out of it”

@_Liamm99: “Should punt him now if we want any chance of winning this semi final”

@fairgrieve_alex: “Something to cheer about at last”
