    Scottish Cup defeat

    Morton deserved to win. Time to give Oxborough a chance to show what he can do.

    That was horrific. Indeed, it was so bad as much as it's the manager's responsibility, I find it hard to be angry at him rather than the players. The errors from Kelly, Spittal, McGinn we're shocking, as was the attitude and basic skills throughout.

    It does put huge amounts of pressure on Kettlewell to the end of the season though. Finishing ninth is meh but if you exit the cups battling against the big five everyone shrugs. Ninth and two absolutely abject cup exits to fellow dross basically means he's on the cusp of another removal campaign until autumn and that's with things going well.

    An utterly dismal night.

    The honorable thing to happen is Kettlewell resign immediately with contract cancelled i.e. no paying off thru end of whatever contract he is on. His assistant too.

    Kettlewell cannot be held responsible for a keeper who tonight couldn’t catch a cold never mind a football. The keeper has to command his area and for Kelly not to put someone on the front post on the goal line is a joke. Easier for the man on the goal line to come out and head the ball than stand were Spittal was and let it go over his head. Kelly has to be dropped or take captaincy from himleaving him to concentrate on his own game

    Prefer if SK played alternative strikers that did not include Bair & Obike. Start all loan players with exception Shaw, as appear better than contracted players. Shuffle defence to accommodate. Have Ferrie on bench for experience and attacking option.

    Too late but should have taken McKinstry back as FREE as desperately need a winger

    Would have been Celtic away...so not a great chance missed but an expensive stinker on Friday.
