Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart found himself in a dramatic situation during the Scottish Cup semi-final when he stepped up to take a penalty but ended up hitting the post. However, he quickly turned the situation around by saving Aberdeen’s crucial spot-kick, ultimately securing a victory for his team and advancing them to the final.

The semi-final match was a wild 3-3 draw that led to a shoot-out following Angus MacDonald’s equalizer in the 119th minute. Hart attempted to emulate his former teammate Ederson, who had successfully taken a penalty for Manchester City in the Champions League, but unfortunately, Hart’s shot hit the post, giving Aberdeen an opportunity to progress. Nonetheless, Hart redeemed himself by denying Killian Phillips at Hampden Park, maintaining Brendan Rodgers’ unbeaten record at the national stadium. In an eventful cup classic, Aberdeen took an early lead through Bojan Miovski, only for Celtic to equalize before halftime with a goal from Nicholas Kuhn.

A late equalizer by Ester Sokler sent the game into extra time, but ultimately, Celtic emerged victorious, setting up a final against either Rangers or Hearts. This may include adverts from us and 3rd parties based on our understanding. You can unsubscribe at any time. Read our Privacy Policy.
