Derek McInnes: 'No shame in losing to Celtic'

Boyata scored against Aberdeen earlier this season

The former St Johnstone and Bristol City manager has led Aberdeen to three consecutive runners-up spots in the Premiership as well as the 2014 League Cup - the club's first trophy for 19 years.

"But I give credit to my players and credit to the Aberdeen players because I thought they worked tirelessly throughout the game".

"I've had speculation about my players for three months, players out of contract, players under contract".

Rodgers, on the cusp of being only the third Celtic manager to win the clean sweep in Scotland after Jock Stein (twice) and Martin O'Neill - although he would be the first to do it without a defeat - is keeping it low key.

"That's what makes the season we have had so special so far". To go through a league season unbeaten, to win a treble.

"We have had a number of injuries throughout the season, but every player who has come in has done very well, so I never have had to rely on just 11 players". They are a big club that has had a change and now needs someone who can organise: someone who has been at a big club. This might be a once-in-a-lifetime achievement. That's not being harsh on the fine job McInnes has done, it's just the way football is.


Rooney doesn't believe nerves are going to hit now and so his firm belief is that Aberdeen need to forget about Celtic and concentrate on what they are good at. Obviously Aberdeen were trying to break the game up and we weren't as fluent. Leigh gets injured and Moussa comes in and does fantastically well.

"We have found it hard against them".

"The cup is very important to us and it will be for Aberdeen as well".

Celtic's Brendan Rodgers: "Maybe the stars were aligned this year with it being the anniversary year for Celtic and there was just a feeling about this season. But we stayed calm and hopefully over time they would start to tire and that's what happened". "We have put ourselves in a position to win it and all the squad are desperate to lift the cup again".

The game was played at a frenetic pace as both teams went looking to win the final piece of silverware of the season.
