"Celticís Mark Millar was the first to be denied by Gaston in the 25th minute. Niall McGinn was then thwarted twice by the impressive shot-stopper. The visitors should have broken the deadlock in the 66th minute. Paul McGowan fired a cross towards the back post but Cillian Sheridan blazed wide. Rovers held on for spot-kicks and had taken Celtic all the way in a 16-penalty marathon." — Jul 22 2009 by Colin Paterson, Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser
