What is your favourite Scottish Cup final memory?

Scoring a goal before 3pm in the 1978 final against Hearts.

The game kicked off early for some reason and I netted after just 42 seconds.

Scoring early gives the team a massive lift and it certainly did for us that afternoon.

Alex MacDonald banged in a second goal for us after that and then I got another one before the end of the game.

We won 3-1 to clinch the domestic treble.
