Barrie McKay responds to Craig Gordon claims

Rangers man Barrie McKay responds to a dig by Celtic keeper Craig Gordon following his Scottish Cup heroics.

Rangers ace Barrie McKay has stated via Sky Sports that Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon is entitled to his opinion following his claim about the midfielder's wonder goal in the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The 21-year-old found the top corner from the guts of 25 yards at Hampden Park earlier this month - a goal which put Mark Warburton's side 2-1 ahead in extra time, before the Scottish Championship outfit ultimately edged out their Old Firm rivals on penalties.

Earlier this month, the Hoops stopper described the goal as a "one-hit wonder" (The Sun), but Rangers man McKay added another long-range strike to his collection in last week's 3-2 defeat at Hibernian, and the youngster was quick to point that out to Gordon.

"He's got his views on it and everybody else has theirs. It's just a matter of opinion. I think [the goal against Hibs] was two in two," McKay said via Sky Sports.

"I've scored quite a few goals like that from outside the box throughout my career but the Old Firm match was a big game to do it in."


Indeed, young McKay seems to be making quite a habit of scoring spectacular goals and he will hope that such habits do not desert him when Rangers return to the top flight next season.

There could be a minimum of four Old Firm derbies next term, and the Rangers ace will be hoping lightning can strike twice for Gordon in them.
