    In the world of football this weekend, a blue moon rose again over the League Cup, while Son didn't shine for Tottenham.

    There was plenty of late drama in the Scottish Cup quarter-final between Rangers and St Johnstone on Sunday. After a goal from the Premiership champions deep into extra time, St Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark got an assist in the 122nd minute to take the game to penalties. He then saved two penalties in the shootout to help them win the tie.
