Celtic sink courageous Aberdeen in Scottish Cup final


CELTIC complete an unbeaten domestic treble after Tom Rogic scored an injury-time victor to sink Aberdeen in the dying minutes.

Celtic fired back nearly immediately when the ball broke to Stuart Armstrong on the edge of the Aberdeen area and he struck a low shot past Joe Lewis to level the scores.

Midfielder Tom Rogic scored from an acute angle in the second minute of stoppage time at Hampden Park to ensure Celtic added the cup to the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish League Cup.

It was the Dons' sixth defeat of the season to Celtic but they more than played their part in a compelling match, only to find again that the Parkhead club this season are irresistible.

He told TalkSport: "I'm aware of the speculation but I'm thinking about winning this game".

The pressure on the Aberdeen defence continued after the break with Ash Taylor deflecting a Griffiths attempt just wide before the Dons went close at the other end when Stockley and Andy Considine were unable to convert from a delicious Kenny McLean cross.

Co Antrim man Brendan Rodgers has guided Celtic to another trophy win in Scotland, clinching an historic treble. Aberdeen booked their place at Hampden Park after dispatching of the likes of Stranraer, Ross County, Partick Thistle and Hibernian, and boast six consecutive away wins ahead of Saturday's final so Celtic shouldn't underestimate them.

"They've done it in the league already, which is an incredible achievement and we all give them plenty of credit for that. For the season, what we've done - we deserve this!"

"It will be a hard game but we are ready to give everything as it is the last game of the season as well".

"I said to the players just before they went out his is a game where you want them to write about it afterwards but you have to make it, you have to make history it doesn't just happen".

"But don't get me wrong - we've had to earn it".

Tom Rogic netted an injury time victor as Aberdeen's hopes of denying Celtic a domestic treble ended in disappointment.

"It's very fitting that the team could honour the Lisbon Lions' 50th anniversary by playing in a way which is synonymous with that great Celtic team".
