League Cup win will sink in this week says St Mirren hero Thompson

St Mirren striker Steven Thompson said the Scottish Communities League Cup victory on Sunday would not sink until later on in the week.

The 34-year old scored his side's second goal as they came from behind to defeat Heart of Midlothian 3-2 at Hampden and was absolutely chuffed when interviewed after the famous victory.

"It's pretty much indescribable really. I've been dreaming about doing it ever since we beat Celtic (in the semi-finals) and I won't lie, I've not had a lot of sleep," he said.

"I made a near-post run and made sure I was really concentrating to make a good connection with the ball - you could probably see from my face that it was a dramatic moment.

"It's just an amazing feeling and in the next few days I'll realise what it means.

"I'm a supporter too and it's been a quarter of a century since we won a cup so it means everything to them.

"It's great to be part of the history of this football club and I'm bursting with pride."
