YESTERDAY'S Super Single winner relied on a 94th-minute winner for Aberdeen but we probably all owe Livingston ‘keeper Max Stryjek a pint or two to help him drown his sorrows!
The Polish stopper fumbled an injury-time speculative shot in to the net to hand Aberdeen all three points much to the delight of the Reds' fans and countless punters up and down the country who cashed in on the bookies overpricing the Dons.

We're off to Germany tonight for a DFB Pokal match between Kaiserslautern and Borussia Monchengladbach, live on BT Sport. Tolu has previewed the match for us and he reckons the Bundesliga side should be focused enough to nsure safe passage in to the next round.
Greg is taking in the J-League in the morning (10am) and the Swedish Allsvenskan in the evening (6pm) for his Bet of the Day Double which pays 5/4. Don't miss it.
Monday might be quiet but there's a busy week ahead…
Rangers are in action at Ibrox where they must overturn a 2-1 first leg deficit against Malmo to keep their Champions League dreams alive. That's one of 10 qualifers with the likes of PSV Eindhoven, Benfica and Monaco all in strong positions to progess.
There's also a myriad of Carabao Cup first round matches in England, and in Scotland the Challenge Cup, which features teams from the lower leagues, Highland and Lowland leagues as well as U21 sides from the Premiership's 12 teams, kicks-off.
Chelsea and Villarreal contest the UEFA Super Cup in Belfast on Wednesday night, live on BT Sport as Thomas Tuchel attempts to add a second piece of silverware to his tenure at Stamford Bridge.
The Europa Leagua and Europa Conference take centre stage. St Johnstone have a fantastic opportunity to cause an upset following their 1-1 with Galatasaray in Turkey – it should be some night at McDiarmid Park, while Celtic look to have done most the hard work with their first leg 4-2 win over Jablonec.
Hibs face a tough task to get result in Croatia at HNK Rijeka with the tie in the balance at 1-1. Aberdeen should be able to build on their 3-2 to win over Breidablik in Iceland last week.

The Caddy Burns the Bookies Again
Our brilliant golf tipster , The Caddy, came so close to landing another whale for us this weekend at the WGC FedEx St Jude Invitational. 80/1 shot Sam Burns clawed his way in to contention to eventually compete in a three-way play-off for the $1.82m first prize.
But he fluffed a short putt to hand the title to Abraham Ancer when it looked like they'd both have to go for another play-off hole. At 80/1 Burns still provide some nice each-way money as well as landing The Caddy's other tip for him to finish in the Top 20 at 11/4.
Well done to everyone that followed The Caddy and keep an eye out for his tips for this week.
