Steven Thompson admitted his overwhelming emotion was of relief after helping St Mirren to a 3-2 Scottish Communities League Cup final win over Hearts.
Thompson's turn and through ball for Gary Teale changed the game as the winger set up Esmael Goncalves to score a 37th-minute equaliser against the run of play.
Even better was to come for the striker as his first-time finish found the roof of the net seconds after the restart to give St Mirren a 2-1 lead.
The Paisley-born forward had won a clean sweep of domestic honours with Rangers but he admitted before this game that winning a trophy with his boyhood heroes would eclipse anything he had achieved.
Thompson said: "I've been running it through in my head, running through my goal and running to the fans, running through winning the cup.
"To say that I've been thinking about it would be an understatement, it's been pretty much all-consuming in my mind for the last three weeks.
"There's no doubt I visualised what happened today and thankfully it came true.
"As the manager said at half-time, it was written in the stars for me.
"In a strange way, I'm glad it's all over so I can actually get some other thoughts into my head now."
