Lewis has been regarded as one of the Scottish Premiership’s best goalies for several seasons now, and he did his reputation absolutely no harm this afternoon at the national stadium.
With Celtic leading 1-0 at the break, the Hoops were awarded a controversial spot-kick early in the second-half, after referee Andrew Dallas deemed Dominic Ball had deliberately hand-balled on the edge of the penalty area, much to the Dons players’ disgust.
Sinclair stepped up and looked certain to slot the ball into the far corner, but Lewis called upon his cat-like reactions to claw the ball away from the goal-line, to keep his side in with a chance of lifting the cup:
Wow! So much drama in the Betfred Cup final 😱

What do you think of the save, and just how good a goalie is Lewis?
