History awaits Celtic at Hampden

The last time Celtic won a treble, I was still a season ticket holder and living in Glasgow. After four managers in three seasons the club procured the services of Martin O’Neill.

The Northern Irishman, a breath of fresh air in the English Premiership, promised he would do everything he possibly could to bring success to the club. And he did. 

Many will cherish the UEFA Cup run of the 2002/2003 season which was ironically trophyless one. However, it was O’Neill’s debut season treble that regenerated the club and set us on a course to better things.

Nobody knew what to expect, but we all knew O’Neill was the right guy for the job. He would add a few key players to an already talented squad.

Sound familiar? Is history repeating itself?

Well, we’ll find out today at Hampden when another Northern Irishman leads Celtic to the Scottish Cup Final. Aberdeen, the Scottish Premiership runners-up, stand in Celtic’s way of a historical moment.

Gordon, Lustig, Tierney, Simunovic, Boyata, Brown, Armstrong, McGregor, Sinclair, Roberts and Griffiths, the expected line-up, will walk out onto the Hampden turf this afternoon. They are charged with bringing home the treble and securing the final piece of an unbeaten domestic season.

There is a possibility we may see Sviatchenko, Toure, Rogić, Forrest or Dembele at some point as well. That will all depend on how the game pans out.

Your moment awaits Bhoys. Bring home the treble.

Stay invincible. Stay great.

Hail! Hail!
