Celtic beat Hibs to lift Betfred Cup

Sunday 27th November 2016

Celtic beat Hibernian 4-0 at Hampden Park in the Betfred Cup final on Sunday and remain unbeaten in domestic football under Brendan Rodgers.

It was the Parkhead club's 16th League Cup triumph, and their 100th trophy overall, as they defeated the Hibs for the third time in 2016/17.

Inside forward Patrick Roberts gave Celtic the lead with an attempt which took a fortunate deflection in the 13th minute. Controversy would strike a few minutes later as Celtic were denied a clear penalty after a foul on Scott Sinclair.

Hibernian striker James Keating had a really bad day especially in the second half when an error by him caused an own goal in the 68th minute. Ten minutes later Patrick Roberts would score his second goal of the match.

Celtic's Stuart Armstrong ended the decisive victory with a goal from 13 yards out in the 83rd minute.

Fantastic victory, congratulations on the trophy!
A convincing win to win the cup, hopefully this is one of many! :)
I think a 100th trophy deserves a bit more fanfare mate!! Great win
Justice Thanks, it was a crazy finish

ScottT No doubt

Sudbury There will be tons of fanfare in the next two post!! The board gave me a nice present for it.

THE day after Celtic have won their 100th trophy in club history the board has announced that manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new contract with the club effective on 1 December.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "Brendan has made a huge impact at Celtic already. He's an outstanding manager and we believe he is one of the best coaches in Europe, if not world football, and we're delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic."

For Rodgers this extension came as a surprise and was very unexpected. Rodgers said: "When coming into the office today I did not expect this at all, as soon as I got in I got an email from Peter (Lawwell) to meet with him, he presented me the contract and I was ecstatic and signed it. To be fair I wasn't expecting something like this until the closing months of the season."

Rodgers has lead the team to an unbeaten Premiership season through 12 games and League Cup success yesterday, with a Scottish Cup fourth round to come in January, while also guiding the team into the group stages of the UEFA Champions League and are on the verge of advancing either to the Champions League or Europa League First Knockout Round.

The contract is set to run until the end of the 2019/20 season and is worth £700k a year.

Celtic return to Premiership action on November 30th as they face St. Johnstone at Celtic Park. This is a Celtic TV exclusive and kickoff is slated for 7:30.
Four years, brilliant. Let's hope that within these next four years Rodgers can achieve something special.
Well done in the cup and on the contract extension man, more than deserved!
ScottT I hope so too

mgriffin2012 Thanks

100 trophies and counting. That is the theme for the month of November as we were crowned League Cup Champions for the first time in two seasons. November also saw the club inch closer to the knockout stages in European Competition. Finally in league play Celtic continue to dominate as we have not lost in any of the thirteen matches this season. Craig Gordon has not allowed a goal in the Premiership in six straight matches.

Unlike the previous month Celtic had many player get awards including two for Stuart Armstrong who received the Player of the Month and Goal of the Month Awards. Patrick Roberts received the Young Player of the Month award.

The William Hill Scottish Cup Fourth Round draw also took place this month. We will be traveling to Hamilton to face the Accies on January 21st.

Through 13 matches Celtic are in control with 33 points. In Champions League Celtic are currently in second behind Leicester City with 8 points.

"Stu (Armstrong) is really having a great season so far and it is nice to see my friend get recognized for it. The club is really benefiting from his improvement," said Gary Mackay-Steven

Here is your spoiler free recap of November

Revenge has finally happened as Celtic sweep Porto in the two games played between each other. Two goals from Moussa Dembele lead the way as the home team were brushed aside despite working hard. Scott Sinclair also scored.

The first of two Premiership matches in a row saw Celtic defeat Inverness by a 4-0 victory. Goalkeeper Craig Gordon continued his dominant play in the league by having his sixth clean sheet in league play. Scott Sinclair got the game off by scoring a penalty in the fifth minute. He would follow up with his second in the twenty-sixth minute. Goals were also scored by Patrick Roberts and Stuart Armstrong.

The trip to Rugby Park saw the Hoops play one of the most impressive displays of football this season. Seven goals were scored and it all started when Stuart Armstrong scored back-to-back goals in the second and third minutes. Moussa Dembele also scored two goals this match. Three players had solo goals including Erik Sviatchenko.

The fifth match of the group stage saw Celtic in a hard fought match that resulted in a draw against leaders Leicester City. It was a much more relaxed day for the Bhoys as they placed at home. Craig Gordon was the key player making several saves as not allowing the guest to score. This result was a turn around from the 3-1 loss on matchday one.

Four days later Celtic would attempt to win their first piece of silverware this season. In a packed Hampden Celtic would win by a 4-0 score en route to the clubs 100th trophy in club history. Patrick Roberts got the match started off with a goal in the thirteenth minute. He would eventually score his second of the day in the seventy-eighth minute. An own goal by Hibernian gave us some more room and Stuart Armstrong finished the day off with a goal in the eighty-third minute. Sadly Kieran Tierney got injured with a broken jaw and will miss between two and three weeks.

Things did not go the way Brendan Rodgers wanted in the final match of November. After a very grueling month the team was once again rotated and this lead to another scoreless result. The team could feel the effects without Kieran Tierney and his athletic play from the back. Craig Gordon had a repetitively quiet day as St. Johnstone only had three shots on goal.

Stuart Armstrong had one of his best months in the green and white hoops as he is the November Dafabet Player of the Month. He did everything from scoring to assisting and defending. His stellar play included a two goal game at Killie. In this match he scored two goals back-to-back in the first five minutes of the game.

Congratulations on a massive month.


December marks the closing of 2016 and there are a total of nine matches. Most are make ups due to Champions League. Also in this bunch Celtic will be traveling to Greece in an important final day of the group stage on December 6th. It will be the deciding factor to what knockout round Celtic advance to, either the Champions League or Europa League. Celtic embark on a three game road trip starting with Motherwell on December 3rd and finish it at Patrick Thistle on the 9th. A three match home stand is next in the middle of the month starting with Hamilton on the 13th, Dundee on the 17th and Partick Thistle on the 20th. Four days later on Christmas Eve Celtic travel to Hamilton and four days later host Ross County. On New Years Eve Celtic finish 2016 off with a trip to Ibrox for the second Old Firm of the season.
Congratulations mate on the trophy. Rodgers a four year deal thats a big contract and worth it
Still unbeaten in the league so far - replicating real life.
Armstrong very much proving his goal scoring worth, good to see him performing well and seemingly becoming an integral part of your team!
In with a great shot at making the round of 16 in the Champions league which would do wonders for the club! Europa League wouldnt be too bad though as i feel you could put together a very good run!
redvee35 Thanks, I am so happy they trust me that much

ScottT Its pretty cool right?

Justice He is a really good player even in real life, Brighton are trying to get him for their move to the Premier League. Crazy how much he developed with Rodgers

mgriffin2012 Even though it is better money in Champions League, Europa has a better chance of me getting to the final
