Hibs player scores great goal, invents word

Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc was the fall-guy as a plan by Hibernian’s John Rankin and Derek Riordan to embarrass the SPL’s keepers came into fruition. Rankin scored from just inside Celtic’s half to secure victory for Hibs.

He said: “The boys were asking why I was shooting from the ark, but I’ve been practising with Derek 45-yard squigglers as we call them. To be fair, it did squiggle. I don’t know if that helped me or if it was a goalkeeping mistake.”
