Scottish Cup win completes unbeaten treble

Just to recap. Celtic are Scottish Cup winners for the 37th time, completing a record-breaking season unbeaten in all domestic competitions.

It's never been done before. Will we ever see the likes again?

Aberdeen put up a great fight at Hampden but were undone by Tom Rogic's stoppage-time winner.

A dramatic end to a fantastic advert for the game.

Celtic win treble: 'So many emotions' for Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers says his first season in charge of Celtic has been "a dream" with the club completing a treble without losing a domestic match.

Sore one to take for Aberdeen - McInnes

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes talking to BBC Scotland:

"It was a huge effort from everyone, a real confident display from us for large parts of the game.

"But we came here to win so obviously there is real disappointment.

"Any injury-time goal going against you is a sore one to take and when it's a cup final it compounds it even more.

"Little moments can be the difference and it maybe came down to that today.

"We just ran out of legs, It was our 351st day since we reported back to pre-season training. The players have knocked their pan in.

"There's no shame in finishing second to this Celtic team. My weekly budget for the whole squad will equate to one of their player's salaries

"We rinse everything out of these boys. Their effort and application is second to none."

Tierney worry for Scotland?

Is Kieran Tierney a doubt for Scotland v England on 10 June?

"I think he needs an operation," said Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, without going into any more detail.

The full-back too a nasty whack in mouth from Jayden Stockley during the first half and could not continue but he was around for the post-match celebrations and looked to be in fine spirits.

Play-off finale to come

The season isn't quite over. There is still the matter of the Premiership play-off final to be decided.

Hamilton and Dundee United go at it tomorrow, with the tie balanced at 0-0 after the first leg at Tannadice.

Kick-off is at three o'clock and we'll have the game covered on radio and online, with TV highlights to follow.

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

And what about Aberdeen? There will be a few players from today's starting XI moving on, including Ryan Jack, Niall McGinn and maybe Ash Taylor.

The most important thing for the Dons will be holding on to manager Derek McInnes.

What next for Celtic?

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

We can safely assume that the one target missed by Brendan Rodgers was progress in the Champions League.

That is going to be top of the manager's to-do list over the summer, which will mean a marquee signing or two.

Bad news for the rest of Scottish football or is there any chance they will they take their eye off the ball domestically.

An unbeaten treble is certainly a hard act to follow.

'A great day for the club' - Rodgers

Speaking to BBC Scotland, a delighted Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says: “I thought we deserved it. It was a very tough game. We just needed to stay calm and eventually the space will open up. That’s what happened and the only disappointment is we didn’t score more goals. It’s a great day for the club.

“We ticked off six of our seven targets this season. It’s been a dream.

“I was born into Celtic. It’s a huge privilege to manage Celtic. It was the right time for myself, the club and we’ve created an identity that we can hopefully build on.

“I need a rest. Myself, the staff and the players, it’s been so intense. We need to get away and have a breather."

Aberdeen run out of puff

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

As the Celtic celebrations continue at Hampden, spare a thought for Aberdeen. Runners-up in the league and both cup finals this season.

The Dons gave Celtic a fright in the first half but just ran out steam and could not keep up their earlier levels of intensity and aggression. Poor Andrew Considine, a great servant to the club, could barely move as Tom Rogic raced past him to fire in the winning goal.

Brown lauds Celtic spirit and fitness

Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Celtic captain Scott Brown says: "This is exceptional, to go undefeated is the best feeling you could experience. I never thought it was going to come today. Aberdeen were outstanding. We knew our fitness levels would kick in. This is the best feeling ever."

'Aberdeen played their part, Celtic worthy winners'

Willie Miller

Former Aberdeen captain on BBC Sportscene

We got an excellent game of football this afternoon. I think most people felt it would be one-way traffic but Aberdeen played their part today. A magnificent occasion and Celtic are worthy winners.

Tierney able to join the Celtic party

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Manager Brendan Rodgers now has his hands on the cup and here's a nice touch as the manager hands a winners' medal over to Kieran Tierney, who had to go off injured in the first half.

The left-back took a whack in the mouth but he's smiling broadly now as he joins in the Celtic celebrations.

'Dream come true' for match-winner Rogic

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Celtic goal hero Tom Rogic, speaking to BBC Scotland: "It’s hard to put into words. It’s what you dream of. We knew what it meant to the fans, it’s unbelievable. People think these cup competitions are easier than they are but to go through the season without losing shows the quality we have."

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

A huge roar fills the stadium as Scott Brown lifts the oldest trophy in world football aloft.

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Now skipper Scott Brown leads the delighted Scottish Cup winners up to collect the silverware.

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

The Aberdeen players trudge up the Hampden stair to collect their runner-up medals. Captain Graeme Shinnie whips his off almost immediately. Manager Derek McInnes looks on disconsolately but he will be proud of his men once he has time to reflect on events this afternoon.

A 'deserved victory' for Celtic, says Armstrong

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Stuart Armstrong, who scored Celtic's first goal, speaking to BBC Scotland: "We always had belief and in the second half we grew in confidence. As the game went on I thought we’d get on chance and we take it. I thought we got what we deserved."

An 'incredible, invincible' season

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

"It's a great day for us. This season has just been incredible. To do the treble and go invincible is unbelievable," says Celtic forward Patrick Roberts, who neatly side-steps any questions about whether this is his last appearance in a green and white jersey.

FT: Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

The Celtic players are saluting their delighted fans inside the stadium, while the Dons players and supporters look on in stunned disbelief.

FULL-TIME Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Celtic win the Scottish Cup for the 37th time to seal an unbeaten domestic treble. What an achievement from Brendan Rodgers' side but you have to feel for Aberdeen, who put so much into a hugely entertaining game.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Patrick Roberts is off as Celtic eat up a few seconds and beef up their defence with the arrival of Erik Sviatchenko.

Scott Wright is on for the Dons, with Ryan Jack making way in the final seconds.

The Aberdeen players are heartbroken, they are on their knees. They have put so much into this game.

GOAL Celtic 2-1 Aberdeen

Tom Rogic

Have Celtic just sealed an unbeaten treble in injury time? It looks very like it as Tom Rogic glides past Anthony O'Connor and an exhausted Andrew Considine before rifling an angled shot past Joe Lewis at the keeper's near post.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

We'll get three additional minutes as Celtic force a corner. Leigh Griffiths' delivery curls straight out of play and the big defenders who have come up from the back will need to trudge all the way back.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Do we have time for a dramatic late winner or are we going into extra time?

Scott Sinclair pops up in the Aberdeen penatly area again but can only scoop an awkward shot high and wide.

Which way will this game go?

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

With the rain still lashing down, Leigh Griffiths pings an excellent free-kick to the back post where a sliding Mikael Lustig somehow heads the ball away from goal. Another good chance spurned by Celtic as the clock runs down.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Jonny Hayes has a word with the Aberdeen management team. It looks like he's struggling a bit. Will he be able to continue?

BBC Sport Scotland at Hampden

This now has the feel of two heavyweights slugging it out in the final stages of a prize fight. Both teams defending desperately and breaking with purpose when they get the chance. Something has to give.

Steven Thompson

Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportscene

Scott Sinclair has missed two absolute sitters. It's as if the ball gets stuck under his foot as he goes to half-volley it into the net.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Scott Sinclair fluffs his lines inside the six yard box again. The Celtic forward is all alone at the back post but mis-hits his volley, allowing Joe Lewis to block.

Aberdeen are under the cosh now...

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Tom Rogic slides a lovely pass through for Leigh Griffiths to run on to. The Celtic striker steadies himself near the edge of the box and fires off a firm, low strike but he can't get past Joe Lewis, who gets a strong hand to it.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Another change for the Dons as Niall McGinn is replaced by Anthony O'Connor.

Will that be McGinn's last contribution for the Dons? He looks sure to be moving on under freedom of contract in the summer.

GREAT SAVE!

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Aberdeen have found a second wind here, with Graeme Shinnie covering an unnatural amount of ground. The Dons skipper has a crack from distance, catching the shot sweetly, and Craig Gordon is at full-stretch to push it away.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

It's end to end stuff now as Adam Rooney finds space on the right but the Aberdeen substitute is not quick enough to escape the younger legs of Callum McGregor.

Steven Thompson

Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportscene

Celtic are creating the better opportunities. Boyata escapes his marker and really must score. He's got to hit the target at least.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Patrick Roberts is seeing more of the ball now as he glides past a couple of opponents and stands up a good cross. Ash Taylor needs to make a clever clearing header over his own crossbar, with Scott Sinclair lurking.

From the corner, Dedryk Boyata gets a powerful connection on his header but cannot steer it on target. He has to be doing better there.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

The rain is back but it is certainly not dampening the enthusiasm of the crowd, with both sets of supporters really cranking up the noise.

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

Are Aberdeen's energy levels dipping? The Dons are in trouble from a corner and relieved to see Mikael Lustig stabbed shot trundle wide.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Celtic 1-1 Aberdeen

That's more like it from Patrick Roberts as he cuts in from the left, twisting his way past Mark Reynolds before taking aim for the far corner. Joe Lewis gets a fingertip to it, taking the ball onto the post. Fantastic save from the big man.
