Strachan enjoys late show

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan felt his side deserved their Scottish FA Cup win at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, even if they left it late to secure a 2-1 victory. Steven Pressley and Kenny Miller netted right at the death for the Bhoys, whose late, late show left the Highlanders devastated. Strachan said: "Thank goodness it was my players out on the pitch and not me. They kept going and that was good of them. "From the equaliser, it was grit and determination that got the winner and it was a fantastic goal. That's the best we've played up here in my time in terms of making sure Inverness didn't get many chances. "We never made many chances ourselves, but our passing and movement was good, although our free-kicks were poor. "But the work we put in during the first half of the game allowed us to score late in the game, because they had tired. "Our final ball was poor, but our build-up play was excellent."
