  3. Still not good enough from the Dons

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Watching that performance I saw quite a lot of tired legs towards the end of the game. This is the time to get them [Celtic or Rangers] when they're involved in Europe, travelling abroad, coming back talking about the recovery. So it's not surprising when you see them slowing the game down. From an Aberdeen point of view it's as good a performance as you could hope for. But it's not a surprising performance. We know they can't score goals. It's been like that all season. I don't think we should get carried away with the performance from Aberdeen

    Prior to last weekend's win over Hamilton Accies, a game that Christie scored in, we charted his recent journey into the spotlight. Have a read. Go on...

  6. Celtic will lose a major final

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    There is a stage when Celtic will lose a major final, there no question. Aberdeen today did put a bit of challenge up but didn't have enough about them. Celtic have got the quality. If it's not young Forrest that's doing it then it's Christie; if it's not Christie that's doing it then someone else is doing it. They have the players in those positions to do it and off the bench also.

    It's a strong bench. What Brendan Rodgers has brought to this team is a way and a knowledge of how to play the game and win games.He's brought that to this group of players. It wasn't there in the past.

  8. Rodgers has us on fire - Forrest

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Celtic winger James Forrest praises manager Brendan Rodgers for helping the side recover their form in recent weeks.

    "It has been unbelievable and we grinded that out today and it's a joy for the fans, the players and the staff and we're buzzing with today," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "I just think the gaffer's put confidence in the team and the last couple of months we've been really good and kept the form going.

    "When you miss the penalty, you think they might get a chance, but we had a couple of chances to kill the game.

    "I think we've done well and we're all buzzing."

  10. Rodgers hails from father to son

    FT: Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers: "I feel very satisfied. Of all the trophies we’ve won this is probably the most satisfying because it wasn’t an easy start to the season for us. We played against a tough team today at the end of a tough week and the players came through to show that mentality, strength and talent.

    “It’s big hearts they’ve got and another trophy.

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers

    “In the last two months he [Ryan Christie] has been amazing and he deserves the man of the match, the status. When I came up here it used to be Charlie Christie’s son, now he’s Ryan Christie’s dad.”

  11. 'Ryan Christie should've been sent off' - McInnes

    FT Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes: "I thought we dealt with everything apart from the counter attack. Obviously we are 1-0 down and we managed to scramble a lot of their breaks but I thought it was really controlled work against the ball in the first half.

    “Whether the disruption knocks our concentration – it was too big a gap for Christie to run into but other than that I thought we kept their opportunities to a minimum.

  12. 'Phenomenal achievement'

    FT Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Michael Stewart

    Congratulations to Celtic. Seven out of seven under Brendan Rodgers, it really is a phenomenal achievement. Aberdeen just lacking that final piece of the jigsaw in the team at the moment. It’ll be so frustrating for Derek McInnes, the players and fans to see their side competing at a time when Celtic are so dominant.

    Tumultuous final. The Dons emptied the tank and made it a hell of a tussle, but won by a terrific finish by the man of the moment, Ryan Christie, and a Celtic team with a huge spirit. Hope Gary Mackay-Steven is recovering well

    Celtic 1-0 Aberdeen

    Willie Miller
