Aberdeen had visions of replicating their League Cup success of 2014, but they ran in to a rampant Celtic side who show no sign of giving up the unbeaten domestic run they have embarked upon this season.
Wonderful goals from Tom Rogic and James Forrest set them on their way, and the disappointing Dons knew it was curtains when Moussa Dembele slotted home a third after the break.
A landmark trophy for Celtic in more ways than one. It is the club's 100th major trophy in their history, and it is the first piece of silverware of the Brendan Rodgers era.
His side look unstoppable at the moment, but can they maintain that standard to go on and secure a domestic treble? It will be interesting to find out.
For now, the day belongs to Celtic as they celebrate winning the League Cup for the 16th time.
