Incredible Scenes As Tom Rogic Secures Celtic's Treble At The Death

Brendan Rodgers says Celtic have created an "identity" after Tom Rogic's stunning goal earned them a last-gasp 2-1 win against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final to secure an unbeaten domestic treble.

In an explosive start at Hampden Park, Jonny Hayes gave Aberdeen the lead after nine minutes when he volleyed in Nial McGinn's corner.

Aberdeen, who finished second in the Scottish Premiership this season, go into Saturday's Hampden Park showdown as massive underdogs.

The Hoops were utterly dominant in league play this season, winning 34 of their 38 matches with just four draws.

I got promoted there with Swansea and it is 46 games of graft and commitment.

"Give credit to all of the Celtic and Aberdeen players, but as the game wore on our quality and movement paid dividends", Rodgers continued. "But we came here to win so obviously there is real disappointment".

"But this is a one-off and a cup final, and from what I've seen from Aberdeen they've got a chance".

Hackett In, Fields Out at Ford
That quote came from none other than Mark Fields , only a few short months ago when Ford announced its purchase of Argo AI . Presidential candidate Donald Trump criticizes the move, even though Ford plans to put new vehicles into the MI plant.

"We implemented how we wanted to go about our business and get after them and Celtic struggled to get any real flow or rhythm into their game and that was important".

Co Antrim man Brendan Rodgers has guided Celtic to another trophy win in Scotland, clinching an historic treble. It's an incredible club and a special feeling I have here, being a supporter.

A dejected Dons manager Derek McInnes admitted his side were beaten by a touch of "class" by Rogic but is confident that his side can go one better next season.

Celtic are hoping to wrap-up a momentous domestic treble and write their names in history.

"Of course, there has been a lot of things written and said in the last few months about what the players could or couldn't achieve in terms of going the season unbeaten".

However, it was the Dons who should have found themselves in front again.

It is OK finishing second, having a good season and setting records but the ones you remember are the ones where you pick up silverware at the end of the season.
