Substitute Tom Rogic's sensational stoppage-time victor gave Celtic a 2-1 William Hill Scottish Cup final success over Aberdeen and clinched an historic treble for the Hoops.

In a thrilling encounter at Hampden Park, the two sides exchanged goals in the early stages.

However, Gordon, who has won three league titles and two Betfred Cups since joining Celtic, is wary of the favourites' tag, even against a side they have beaten five times this season.

He told TalkSport: "I'm aware of the speculation but I'm thinking about winning this game". True, they lost 3-1 to the champions at Pittodrie this month but after a terrible start to the game - they were three goals down after 11 minutes - Aberdeen actually played well.

Celtic fans have been absolutely spoiled rotten this season.

Co Antrim man Brendan Rodgers has guided Celtic to another trophy win in Scotland, clinching an historic treble.

"It is an incredible feeling for the football club and the players in particular because they've been incredible".

Despite past disagreements, Pope Francis and Trump exchange gestures of peace
Catholic Church hierarchy opposes Trump's attempt to cut federal assistance for cities that give sanctuary to illegal immigrants. It's unclear if Trump tried to scare Francis during their meeting Wednesday, but the Holy See described the talk as "cordial".

This year's win also saw them break records for the Scottish Premiership in the amount of goals scored, points won, total number of wins, and the margin of victory on the final league table.

"It's hard to describe what it feels like to score a goal like that and then go and jump into the crowd".

"We know we are one game away from being unbeaten the entire domestic season.

It's impossible to put it into words, but it's probably the best feeling you can have on the football pitch to score the victor in the last minute".

"It think in the first half we weren't playing too well and Kieran has been a massive part of what we've done this season so it was unfortunate to see him go off".

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

"We just ran out of legs, It was our 351st day since we reported back to pre-season training". Aberdeen were visibly tiring and the champions began to swarm around their box and in added time Rogic sealed the win, and the treble, with an angled drive after dancing into the Dons box and the green and white half of the stadium exploded in joy.
