Scottish Cup:Celtic defeats Hearts to secure domestic treble.
Celtic has finally broken the hearts in the afternoon that was thought was going to be a walk in the Hampden Park for overwhelming favourites Celtic with a 2-1 win over Hearts to claim their domestic treble.
Hearts, has been without a win in five games since winning their semi-final and on a run of three straight defeats, are gave as good as they are got from the side chasing a third consecutive clean sweep of domestic honours.
It has been the kind of rearguard action many would have predicted from Hearts. They have not only pressed high but broke quickly.
Chances, though, have been few and far between at both ends.
Both sides delivered some dangerous forces to equate performances until Ryan Edwards was found by Sean Clare.
Arnaud Djoum’s mishit shot sought team-mate Sean Clare 12 yards out and the former Ipswich Town man plays a clever backheel into the path of Edwards to fire low past goalkeeper Scott Bain.
The Australian midfielder strikes to gave Hearts a surprise lead.
Interestingly, Celtic picked with fierce as Odsonne Edouard’s spot kick was firmly stucked in the net.
Then Hearts are caught sleeping by Mikael Lustig’s clearing header from his own half.
The ball evades Christophe Berra and Odsonne Edouard is in the clear behind the defence.
The French striker’s finish is clinical and it handed Celtic a historic treble treble.
