Celtic win unprecedented ‘double treble’ with cup final success

Celtic players celebrate with the trophy after winning the Scottish Cup

CELTIC cruised to a record-breaking second successive domestic treble on Saturday as they beat Motherwell 2-0 to win the Scottish Cup final.

First-half goals from Callum McGregor and Olivier Ntcham were enough to earn the runaway Scottish Premiership champions a third trophy of the season, repeating last year’s treble – unprecedented in Scottish soccer.

Motherwell hit the woodwork in the second half as they staged a spirited rally, but as in the League Cup final in November, Celtic triumphed against the same side by the same score.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has steered the Glasgow side to his sixth domestic trophy in two seasons in charge.
