We'll have a go at it again next year. "They have a great team and they deserved to be second in the league and that's two cup finals, so well done to them as well".

Both sides were wracked with nerves in the second half as Aberdeen sat deeper and deeper but Celtic couldn't find a way through until Rodgers" "Magic Man' Rogic weaved his way into the box and slotted home the priceless victor.
