Celtic beat Aberdeen to win Scottish Cup and complete domestic treble

Celtic clinched the treble in an unbeaten domestic season with a last-gasp goal by substitute Tom Rogic for a 2-1 victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final in Glasgow on Saturday.

Winger Jonny Hayes volleyed the Dons into the lead in the ninth minute only for Parkhead midfielder Stuart Armstrong to level two minutes later.

However, the Hoops fought back immediately and two minutes later Armstrong took a Callum McGregor pass outside the box and fired a low drive past Dons keeper Joe Lewis.

However, Gordon, who has won three league titles and two Betfred Cups since joining Celtic, is wary of the favourites' tag, even against a side they have beaten five times this season.

I want to win things.

He said: "No, because obviously this season started with an injury, then a second injury and I played one game for the team in December".

If Rodgers needs to try to change the game at any point, he can turn to Moussa Dembele off the bench, with Nir Bitton and James Forrest further options.

Football supporters have been told that neither Aberdeen nor Celtic will hold Scottish Cup final trophy events following the Manchester bombing.

Aberdeen finished second in the Scottish Premiership this season and are a big club in Scotland; McInnes seems happy at the Pittodrie Stadium.

The last team to go a whole season unbeaten in the Scottish top flight was the Rangers team of 1898- 99, who only played 18 games in a year.

Rooney doesn't believe nerves are going to hit now and so his firm belief is that Aberdeen need to forget about Celtic and concentrate on what they are good at.

"If we can do it we will always be remembered and to be part of that would be very special".

But instead of feeling the pressure, Gordon says they will rise to the challenge.

"We had moments in the game when we could have got ourselves in front again".

Both sides were wracked with nerves in the second half as Aberdeen sat deeper and deeper but Celtic couldn't find a way through until Rodgers" "Magic Man' Rogic weaved his way into the box and slotted home the priceless victor. This might be a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.
