‘OFF TOMORROW’ and with that further scenes of celebration broke out in the Celtic dressing room.

The players had looked off the pace for 90 minutes but what they lacked in skill they made up for in heart as they dug in to win a 10th successive domestic trophy.

From the early stages when Connor Goldson was allowed a couple of free headers there was something missing about Celtic’s performance.

Fortunately Fraser Forster had his eye in with Jeremie Frimpong the only outfield player to do himself justice.

The second half wasn’t much better with Celtic struggling to retain possession even with Odsonne Edouard on for Lewis Morgan.

On the hour mark Chris Jullien scored from a Ryan Christie free kick but three minutes later Forster was bailing Celtic out again with a penalty save from Alfredo Morelos.

The ten men battled on for 30 minutes before going up to lift the trophy, the match and celebrations were exhaustive with most of the squad likely to be spared a midweek trip to Romania.
