Kilmarnock's Bell: I was wary of 'doing a Ramos' with the League Cup

Kilmarnock goalkeeper Cammy Bell admits he was wary of dropping the League Cup like Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos did last season in Spain.

The 25-year old was the Man of the Match as Killie triumphed 1-0 over Celtic at Hampden Park on Sunday but he revealed how he didn't trust his hands too much when holding the cup aloft on the team bus during the after match celebrations.

"I didn't want to hold the cup for too long when we were on the bus," Bell said.

"We were standing at the edge and I just had visions of me dropping it.

"I didn't really drop too much during the game and thought I must be due to drop something at some point!

"I had it a few times but I preferred to just enjoy the occasion and wave to the fans who had come to support us.

"We were on the bus for about 45 minutes going through the town. It certainly lived up to expectation.

"We got on the bus outside Kilmarnock, the boys were singing and having a good time. When we got to the main street and looked up the bottom of John Finnie Street it was completely packed with thousands of Killie fans.

"It was a magical moment. We got back to the hotel and the fans followed us back."
