Celtic 3-0 Dunfermline

Fitting tribute
The Glasgow side's 13th victory in the competition, sealed thanks to goals from Maciej Żurawski, Shaun Maloney and Dion Dublin, served as a fitting tribute for Celtic legend Jimmy Johnstone who recently died. Celtic dominated the match from the start, with Polish striker Żurawski heading against the crossbar in the seventh minute and Roy Keane also going close. The breakthrough finally came two minutes before the break when Żurawski took advantage of a defensive mix-up to score at the near post.

First trophy
Maloney added a superb second, curling in a free-kick 13 minutes from time, before substitute Dion Dublin, who had come on for Keane after the former Manchester United FC midfielder injured a hamstring, turned in Paul Telfer's low cross in added time. Afterwards Celtic coach Gordon Strachan said: "It's fantastic, my first cup since coming to Celtic and I hope there's many more."

So Lee Dixon thinks Drogba saying he dives sometimes was a language problem.

But for that to work, we have to have an idea what he might have understood by the question. Do you fall????? It doesn't make sense.

It's hard to see how it was just a misunderstanding / mistranslation.

Here's another interpretation: one might argue he was showing a peculiar supercilious disdain for the whole massive cash-cow that's turned him into a rich superstar.

Perhaps he's been reading too much Camus.

Boycott Football!
