Aberdeen may have thought it was going to be their day after Jonny Hayes put them ahead just nine minutes into the Scottish Cup final on Saturday but it was Stuart Armstrong’s strike two minutes later and Tom Rogic’s injury time finish which ultimately decided Scottish football’s showpiece event.
After fighting tooth and nail to bring the game to at least extra-time it was somewhat cruel on Aberdeen to lose out in this manner but nothing can be taken away from Brendan Rodgers’ men who have dominated domestically for the entire season.
Receiving the ball about 40 yards out from goal Rogic managed to find an extra bit of energy to advance towards the penalty area inside which he fired a low and hard shot past the despairing Joe Lewis in goal.
Saturday’s victory means Rodgers becomes only the third Hoops boss to secure a domestic treble in the club’s illustrious history.
With Champions League qualification to come later in the summer the former Liverpool manager will be hoping he can hold onto his key players for what could be a huge season for the club both domestically and in Europe next term.
