Aberdeen have ended their Livi jinx....

So Aberdeen have ended their Livi jinx. We didn't want to win the Scottish Cup anyway!

We just love going up to Pittodrie for a day out and if we win it's a bonus. There was no need for Kevin McNaughton to go down like a sack of spuds and get a fellow professional booked.

If you look at the incident closely, you'll see the Livi player pulled out of the challenge - not that referee John Underhill saw it that way.

I felt cheated as McNaughton's sharp practice saw Oscar Rubio yellow-carded for a crime he didn't commit.

Don't get me wrong. Aberdeen deserved their win, but why do these so-called professionals constantly get away with blatant diving?

I paid £16 to see the game but if players keep on doing this I can see more and staying away from Scottish football - and it will have nothing to do with the weather.
