Gordon confident Celtic will not fall at final hurdle

Celtic completed a trophy treble in Scottish soccer and finished the domestic season undefeated after beating Aberdeen 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final thanks to an injury-time goal on Saturday.

But Celtic equalised just two minutes later through Stuart Armstrong who fired the ball into the bottom right corner from the edge of the box.

Patrick Roberts struck the post as the Hoops searched for a second goal just after the hour mark and they got the victor they fought so hard for in the first minute of added time as first-half substitute Tom Rogic took the ball through the penalty box and slotted past the diving Joe Lewis.

However, Gordon, who has won three league titles and two Betfred Cups since joining Celtic, is wary of the favourites' tag, even against a side they have beaten five times this season.

He said: "I think Tom could play for a top side down south, that's how good he is". True, they lost 3-1 to the champions at Pittodrie this month but after a awful start to the game - they were three goals down after 11 minutes - Aberdeen actually played well. They are one-off occasions and it looks as if we have sold a lot of tickets, as have Celtic.

First lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter, also prayed at the wall, at the portion reserved for women. During his visit, Trump is expected to make a push to relaunch long-stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

"But because of what's at stake - to go unbeaten the entire season and win the treble - they've created pressure for themselves by being successful".

McIness, though, insists Aberdeen should not be written off and are well capable of ending the club's 27-year wait for Scottish Cup glory.

"It is a great opportunity to make history, to be one of the best teams that has every played for this club".

The Reds, bidding for a first Scottish Cup win since 1990, enjoyed the better of the first half but were unable to net a second before the break.

"The gaffer said before the last game that no matter what the last score was we would be going to the final and anything could happen. For the season, what we've done - we deserve this!"
