Aberdeen and Inverness CT fought out the 68th Scottish League Cup final on Sunday, with the Dons coming out on top after a nerve-jangling penalty shoot-out.

A crowd of 51,143 saw the Dons claim their first silverware since winning this competition in 1995/96. Celtic Park was buzzing come kick off as both sets of supporters roared on their heroes.

Derek McInnes' men were without Peter Pawlett after the on form midfielder suffered an injury in training. They experienced a further set back in the first minute when their main attacking threat Jonny Hayes was substituted after he dislocated his shoulder -- a consequence of an awkward fall following an aerial challenge with ICT defender Josh Meekings.

Russell Anderson came agonisingly close to scoring in normal time but the Pittodrie skipper saw his effort hit the post before being cleared off the line by Caley Jags captain Richie Foran.
Both teams failed to make the most of free-kicks in good positions during extra time, and penalties were required to settle the outcome.

Billy McKay was first to take and his effort was saved by Jamie Langfield and Greg Tansey fired over the bar after Barry Robson had scored for Aberdeen.

Nicky Low, Nick Ross, Scott Vernon and Aaron Doran all scored, leaving Adam Rooney to convert the decisive kick and spark wild Aberdeen celebrations.
