From non-existence, to Celtic in the cup

Lowland League side East Kilbride set up a home Scottish Cup meeting with Celtic with a 2-0 victory over Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale.

The Scottish minnows, who only formed in 2010, will have to wait and see where they will be allowed to be play Celtic at the 500-or-so-capacity K Park.

But the result has well and truly put East Kilbride on the map, much to the delight of their club secretary Dave Mckenna.

"We're all so pleased. We're tired, pleased and excited. Everything you can imagine," he told 5 live Sport's Mark Pougatch.

"It's not just the money, it's the exposure for the town. We're a community club - everyone is getting behind us."
