Celtic win a historic treble for the third consecutive season

Heart of Midlothian 1-2 Celtic

Celtic secured a historic treble of domestic trophies for the third consecutive season as Odsonne Edouard’s two goals overcame Hearts in the Scottish Cup final.

Neil Lennon has now led Celtic to a league and cup double after succeeding Brendan Rodgers mid-season and has been offered the manager’s job permanently.

His side overcame the setback of Ryan Edwards’ second-half strike.

Edouard equalized from the penalty spot before coolly hitting the winner.

The Edinburgh side fought hard for an equalizer of their own in the closing stages, but Celtic stood firm to establish a new mark of triumph in the history of Scottish football.

The final whistle brought an emotional response from Lennon on the touchline for a victory that also means Aberdeen qualify for the Europa League instead of Hearts having come fourth in the Premiership.
