Brora Rangers are still in dreamland after one of the biggest Scottish Cup upsets in history with their win over Hearts.

For the Brora players, it was a victory they truly deserved.

Electrician Jordan Macrae scored the opener in the first half. Hearts scrambled an equaliser before fellow sparky Martin Maclean hit the winner.

Fans of the Cattachs, shut out of the ground due to the pandemic, continued the celebrations on Wednesday.

Brora manager Steven MacKay was also still smiling despite only getting two hours’ sleep. He made a nearly four-hour drive back to Fife after the final whistle to make sure he could get to his work in Dunfermline on time.

Brora had not played since their 2-1 first-round win against Camelon on January 11, hours before Scottish football was suspended below the top two men’s divisions.

Brora now become the favourites with Dudgeon Park hosting the visit of League 1 Stranraer in the next round.
