McNamara delighted to advance

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara was delighted to confirm a Scottish Cup semi-final meeting with either Rangers or Albion Rovers.

Nadir Ciftci scored twice and Gavin Gunning converted a penalty before second-half efforts from Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong in a 5-0 rout of nine-man hosts Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

"I'm absolutely delighted," McNamara told BBC Scotland. "I thought we started the game well. It was a great goal by Nadir and even with the second one, his desire to chase it down and not give up - he got his reward for that.

"There was a lot of good performances and we deserved to win," he continued. "I thought we were comfortable in the game. They had one free-kick they got the second ball from, but I don't think they caused any problems. There wasn't a lot of creativity from them."
