Football | Irish duo inspire St Mirren to victory over Rangers in Scottish League Cup

Irish duo Jamie McGrath and Conor McCarthy both scored for St Mirren in the club's 3-2 win over Rangers in the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday.

Jamie McGrath has scored a brace, and Conor McCarthy has netted a dramatic late winner, in St Mirren's stunning 3-2 win over Rangers in the BetFred Cup.

St Mirren have produced a stunning 3-2 victory over Rangers in the quarter-finals of the BetFred Cup.

Irish duo Jamie McGrath (two) and Conor McCarthy bagged the goals for the Buddies, who will now face Livingston at Hamden in the semi-final.

McGrath, who has now scored five goals in four games for the Scottish club, drew St Mirren level from the penalty spot after Connor Goldson had headed Rangers into the lead in the seventh minute.

Irish midfielder Dylan Connolly was felled in the box, and Meath native McGrath kept his cool to make it 1-1 from 12 yards in the 40th minute.

The former Dundalk midfielder then gave Jim Goodwin's men the lead with an excellent finish seven minutes into the second half, evading a defender's tackle in the box before slotting the ball past Allan McGregor at the near post.

Steven Davis' equalised for Steven Gerrard's runaway league leaders in the 88th minute, before former Cork City defender McCarthy popped up with an injury-time winner, turning the ball home from close range after a goal-mouth scramble in stoppage time.

"Probably no one gave us a chance before the game, but I said it before the match that there's a belief here," McGrath said afterwards.

"And that wasn't just cheap talk."

The Paisley club are now unbeaten in 10 games.
