Incredible achievement- Celtic star reacts to his first treble

Image for Incredible achievement- Celtic star reacts to his first treble

Twelve months after picking up his first Celtic medal Chris Jullien completed the strangest Treble ever.

Last December 50,000 fans watched his goal decide the Betfred Cup Final, in May he got a knock on the door as the SPFL trophy arrived for a photo-shoot.

Today he was back at an eerily quit Hampden Park as Celtic completed their domestic trophy haul with a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Hearts.

The match was the original roller-coaster as Celtic twice got themselves into winning positions only to be hauled back into extra time then a penalty shoot-out.

Jullien might have been Celtic’s sixth penalty taker but after Kris Ajer smashed his effort past Craig Gordon the drama was completed with Celtic becoming the first side to win the trophy four years running.

Scott Brown, Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor played in all four finals but as the after-match celebrations demonstrated those players celebrated as much as Jullien, Ismaila Soro, Greg Taylor, Conor Hazard and the others who were picking up their first winner’s medal.
