Hearts striker Beattie unsure over next goal celebrations

Hearts striker Craig Beattie will simply react to the moment at Scottish Cup final, should he net against rivals Hibernian at Hampden. A last-gasp penalty to beat former club Celtic 2-1 at the national stadium last month saw Beattie ensured YouTube immortality by stripping off his maroon jersey and going for a crazed run behind the goal to the delight of the ecstatic Gorgie fans.

"I was out with my wife getting the groceries and got a bit of stick in Marks and Spencers off some old dear who was a Celtic fan," said Beattie.

"She told me to keep my top on the next time I scored.

"But it was obviously a last-minute penalty kick at Hampden to put myself and my team mates into the Scottish Cup final.

"It was just spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment stuff and I enjoyed it with the rest of the Hearts fans.

"But I have nothing planned for Saturday. I am not lucky enough to be planning things like that. If I manage to get a goal then fantastic."
