Celtic made it ten domestic trophies in a row with yesterday’s Betfred Cup win over Rangers at Hampden. Now, Celtic TV have released the behind the scenes footage of the club’s latest triumph at the National Stadium.
A single goal from Christopher Jullien was enough to separate the teams as Fraser Forster saved a penalty to give the battling Hoops a huge win with 10 men.
The Scottish Champions celebrated a stubborn defensive performance with the supporters that were lucky enough to get a ticket to the showpiece final; however, the celebrations didn’t stop there. The players returned to the dressing room and toasted their success with a beer or two.
Although, the party was set to go into the night when Scott Brown speculatively asked Celtic CEO Peter Lawwell if he was putting on a free bar and the boss confirmed, drawing laughs from those in the dressing room as Broony declared ‘Peter’s paying for the drinks!’.
The usually tight-fisted Lawwell would have been enjoying his day until he offered to pick up the tab for the team. With ten trophies in a row, he will be enjoying the success even if he has to loosen the pursestrings to celebrate.
Here is the Unique angle capturing Jullien’s goal and Forster’s save.
The triumph now means that Celtic have 31 wins in a row in cup competitions, with their last defeat coming in the 2016 Scottish Cup Semi-Final defeat to Mark Warburton’s Rangers.
Long may the free bars continue.
