Penalty shoot-out records

Ok, not Scottish football, but interesting for stattos and triv bufs everywhere:

FA Cup tie finally settled after 40-penalty shootout
Fri 02 Sep, 1:45 PM

LONDON (Reuters) - An English FA Cup preliminary round replay between Tunbridge Wells and Littlehampton Town was decided after a 40-penalty shootout on Thursday, the third highest ever recorded in a senior match.

Tunbridge Wells advanced 16-15 after the teams drew 2-2 after extra time. The original match ended in a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

The world record for the highest number of penalties taken in a shootout was established in January this year when 48 were required to settle a Namibian Cup first-round tie. KK Palace eventually beat Civics 17-16 after the match had finished 2-2 after extra time.

Forty-four penalties were needed in a shootout in 1988 when Argentinos Juniors beat Racing Club 20-19 after drawing 2-2 in a league match.

The Argentine domestic league had introduced penalty shootouts to determine standings when matches finished all-square.

What's the Scottish record then? When the Dons beat Celtic 9-8 in the 1990 Scottish Cup Final?
As many European trophies as the Old Firm combined
