Brendan Rodgers secured his seventh domestic trophy in a row as Celtic manager

Brendan Rodgers said the “footballing gods” had a hand in Celtic’s Scottish League Cup final win after Ryan Christie’s winner against his old club Aberdeen.

Christie’s goal was enough to settle a tight match at Hampden Park, in which Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis kept out a second-half penalty awarded after Dominic Ball was adjudged to have handled in the box – but replays suggested the touch was both accidental and outside the area.

For Rodgers, there was something poetic about Christie scoring against the same club where he spent last season and some of 2016/17 on loan from Celtic Park, and said it was testament to the 23-year-old’s improvement since the pair have worked together.
