Heartsin in Scottish Cup final

Hearts secured their 15th Scottish Cup final appearance with three second-half goals against Scottish Championship side Inverness Caledonian Thistle, reports BBC. Craig Levein’s side await the winners of Sunday’s semi-final between Aberdeen and holders Celtic. Uche Ikpeazu fired in just after the break, with John Souttar volleying the second - both from Olly Lee corners. Sean Clare secured the victory from the penalty spot after Ikpeazu was brought down by Mark Ridgers. Victory over the Championship promotion-seekers eased the pressure on Hearts manager Craig Levein. Hearts slipped to sixth in the Premiership behind Hibernian after losing to their Edinburgh rivals in last weekend’s derby at Tynecastle but were well worthy of a return to Hampden on 25 May.
