Celtic clinch unbeaten treble with late Scottish FA Cup win

Boyata scored against Aberdeen earlier this season

Tom Rogic admitted his Scottish Cup final victor was what dreams are made of after his stoppage-time solo goal clinched the treble for Celtic.

Jonny Hayes gave Aberdeen a ninth minute lead which was quickly cancelled out by Celtic's Stuart Armstrong two minutes later.

Even then, it seemed that they would survive to contest half an hour of stoppage time until, for the second year in succession, the Scottish Cup final was settled by an injury-time goal.

Paatelainen was on the receiving end the last time the Hoops completed a domestic clean sweep 16 years ago with a 3-0 victory over Hibs in the 2001 Scottish Cup final.

Rogic started the game on the bench but came on in the 27th minute after Kieran Tierney went off with an injury to his mouth after being caught by Jayden Stockley's flailing arm.

"You don't get many occasions during your career to get something like that on your CV so we are looking forward to it". We had to work hard. It was a very tough game and to win it the way we did was special.

"It's an incredible feeling".

"Nobody expects us to win the game in light of the season Celtic have had, but there is still the same demand from myself on the players to make sure we put in a performance because we feel we can win the game", he said.

The second half also started at pace as Griffiths' deflected shot on the break missed the far post by inches before Lewis blocked a Sinclair shot on the turn from close range. "It is a fantastic achievement and it will take a few days to sink in".

Asked about being spoken about in the same breath as the two Celtic giants, the former Liverpool boss said: "It is a huge honour".

"But they certainly exceeded what I thought they could achieve".

"It doesn't take away from the professional aspect of the job and how much is focused on our vision which is to win titles and play with a charisma and quality which makes the supporters proud".

"This is my third season here and we have not managed to win it since I have been here".

"Jock was the real big pioneer in leading the club the way it wanted to go".

"I've only just begun really, so when I leave here people will look on what I did".
