Scotsman sports sub Phil Johnson is set for three more weeks of football fame after his team Spartans pulled off yet another giant-killing act in the Tennent’s Scottish Cup.
The Edinburghbased East of Scotland side ventured north to meet Second Division Arbroath, and whipped them 4-1.
Spartans, the tournament’s top scorers with 18 goals, now have a glamour home tie against nearneighbours Scottish Premier League Livingston on 7 February.
Midfielder Johnson grabbed his third goal in the cup run with a point-blank header.
Johnson, who is penning a personal diary for The Scotsman, wrote in Monday’s triumphant piece: “When men became lions.
That is one of the outrageous quotes one team-mate suggested I use to describe our pride after a performance and result that eclipses anything we have achieved in football.”
