Caley Thistle left back Graeme Shinnie was delighted both full backs combined to net the winner in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final win against Celtic.
Skipper Shinnie delivered the cross for right back David Raven to fire home at the far post, securing Caley Jags’ 3-2 victory with just four minutes of extra-time remaining.
The goal sets up Inverness’ first Scottish Cup final in their 21-year history, with Championship side Falkirk the opposition at Hampden Park next month, and Shinnie was thrilled to play his part.
The 23 year-old, who will join Premiership rivals Aberdeen at the end of the season, said: “It was just a case of attacking Celtic as much as we could.
“I played a nice one-two with Nick Ross and took the ball to the byline. The main aim was just to keep it in play and get it across the goal, and hoping somebody was there for it.
“Luckily enough the other full back was there to tap it in. It’s his first goal of the season so I’m delighted for him, and delighted for all the boys.”
