Scott Brown: Celtic treble winners 'best' squad captain has played with

Scott Brown: Celtic treble winners 'best' squad captain has played with

Brendan Rodgers says winning the treble with Celtic is an "incredible feeling" after they beat Aberdeen 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final.

However, Hampden Park has not always been a happy hunting ground for the midfielder, with the Australia global missing a Scottish Cup semi-final penalty during Celtic's defeat to Glasgow Rangers previous year. However, Stuart Armstrong answered instantly with an 11th-minute drive into the bottom corner.

The last-gasp strike from Australian star Rogic sealed an historic treble for Celtic as they won the Scottish Cup.

The French striker, who had scored 32 goals in 49 games, returned to training this week after missing out since suffering a hamstring injury in the cup semi-final victory over Rangers.

But the 50-year-old, who netted 28 goals in 92 appearances for Aberdeen in the early 1990s, has seen reason to hope for the Dons, ironically in their 3-1 defeat to Celtic a fortnight ago.

"We had to really respond and show why we are champions, to come from behind to play the way we did in the second half".

"Coming in my job was to try and impose an identity in how we play".

"We knew what it meant to the fans, it's unbelievable".

"But history will judge me because I've only just begun here".

They will discover their first opponents in the qualifiers when the draw is made on 19 June and Rodgers' primary focus is on simply negotiating the three rounds which stand between them and the lucrative group stage.

We feel this is our time now and we believed it was our day and our trophy. That's helped today, we've been able to keep the ball.

"I said to the players just before they went out his is a game where you want them to write about it afterwards but you have to make it, you have to make history it doesn't just happen".

Afterwards he said: "I'm lost for words".

"But because of what's at stake - to go unbeaten the entire season and win the treble - they've created pressure for themselves by being successful".

"If we had sat back then Celtic, with the players they have, would have swarmed over us". I'm sure there are one or two Celtic players around that figure. "It was an unbelievable season and I don't think we could have asked for much more".
