Celtic defeated Hearts with a 2-1 scoreline to win the Scottish Cup on Saturday. In doing so, they became the first club ever to sweep the domestic treble 3 times consecutively.
Highlights Of The Match
Hearts player Sean Clare gave a back-heel pass to Edwards who netted the first goal of the game striking fear in the the hearts of the Bhoys.
In the 62nd minute Odsonne Edouard got Celtic back on level terms when he converted a penalty into a successful goal. In the dying minutes of the match, Mikael Lustig assisted with a long-headed clearance which Edouard gracefully put at the back of the net. The Frenchman, with assistance from Lustig, made sure it was a memorable day for the Celtic.
Many claimed that Swedish international Mikael Lustig was perhaps playing his last game for the club. After 8 years of service, the centre-back broke down in tears when a reporter asked him about his time at the club & the duration of his stay.
It would be an understatement to say that Lustig is massive among the Hoops faithful and a favorite with manager Neil Lennon as well. The reason are the stats itself. He aided the club to win:
- Scottish Premiership (8)
- Scottish Cup (4)
- Scottish League Cup (4)
Lustig has had a decorated club career since his arrival in 2011. His recent form on the pitch might not have been as good as the supporters would have wanted but his popularity amongst the fans still remains strong.
