Celtic Secure The Treble To Complete Unbeaten Season

Manager Derek McInnes is convinced his side's two cup final appearances will not be the last on his watch. Aberdeen booked their place at Hampden Park after dispatching of the likes of Stranraer, Ross County, Partick Thistle and Hibernian, and boast six consecutive away wins ahead of Saturday's final so Celtic shouldn't underestimate them.

"So to have achieved that in our first season, alongside everything else that we have done, is very humbling".

"The older you get, you realise that those don't come along very often, especially one like this with the chance to go and get a treble". You could never of sat down - any manager - coming in at the beginning of the season and wrote down what we would have done. We went out looking to earn it and that epitomised the attitude we have at the club.

"I just want to enjoy my football".

"It's an absolutely incredible achievement". It's unbelievable. So I'm not going to give all the fruity answers or nice answers and say "oh, it's great, it's fantastic, brilliant, you'll love it". I'm proud to play a part in it and proud to be a part of this club.

"We had to ride a wave of attacks and if the game had gone to extra time we would have been looking to kick on again".

Trump pushes for Mideast peace, but avoids thorny details
The moment was abrupt interruption of an otherwise warm and smooth welcome for Trump to the Holy Land. The U.S. has never recognized Israeli sovereignty over parts of the Old City seized in the 1967 war.

"We will go in and play our game".

Rogic's late victor was a cruel blow to the Dons but McInnes insisted his men can be proud following a committed showing at Hampden.

That was until second-half stoppage time, as Tom Rogic expertly diverted the Reds' defensive attempts and finished off a determined solo run by sliding the ball past Joe Lewis - sparking carnage between the Bhoys fans behind the goal.

And Gordon believes his team gave a display of a steeliness they have seldom had to rely on this term as they completed the club's first treble since 2001. We just take a positive spin on that knowing that someone is doing their job right. I didn't really think I would be involved.

"We started a little bit slow which we haven't been doing, especially recently". He doesn't have much time with the European games but he's always had a thing about being the hard workest manager and making sure he has the hardest working players. We had a choice in the game, do we put on a full-back for young Kieran or stay offensive and attacking, and it paid off for us.
