Celtic loanee Liam Scales has suffered a fourth round Scottish Cup upset after West of Scotland League Premier Division side Darvel knocked Aberdeen out the cup.

The Vale as they are nicknamed currently play five divisions below the Dons and this cup exit is undoubtedly the worst in the clubs in history although Darvel were well deserving of their win over the Premiership club to book a fifth round tie against Falkirk.

Scales has played a prominent part since making the switch north on loan in the summer having played over 25 games for Jim Goodwin’s team this season but the manager will be very lucky to survive this humiliation as it will go down as one of if not thee biggest shock upset in Scottish Cup history.

The 24-year-old has mainly feature at centre back even though he was used as a left back while playing under Ange Postecoglou last season.

It had been reported that Goodwin wanted to make Scales’ stay in the Granite City a permanent one and it now looks unlikely that there will be any place for him at Celtic Park after the arrival of Yuki Kobayashi as well as academy graduate Bosun Lawal breaking into the first team.
