Video: Invincibles? Treble Winners? Kris Boyd? Hello darkness my old friend

League Cup Winners Elect turned up in Paisley this evening as the Invincible Treble Winners Elect and 2021 Europa League Holders Elect only had a diddy team to beat at a sill wee subbuteo stadium. What could possibly go wrong.

Well it would have Benn invisibly different had Andrew Dallas not injured himself in the warm-up and unfortunately the rookie replacement hadn’t read the script and instead played to the rules, much to the dismay of the likes of Ryan Kent – incredibly booked for diving – and James Tavernier who demanded a spot kick as the challenge was closer to the penalty area that eleven others that have been awarded recently.

Having beaten Aberdeen in the last round St Mirren were given no change against Steven Gerrard’s Finest team in Europe.

Here’s what happened after the veteran snooker player grabbed a late equaliser to make it 2-2 to guarantee that the 2012’ers were guaranteed the cup.

Kris Boyd, to be fair, took it in his stride.

Here’s the winner again…
