SportGallery: Celtic celebrate historic 'Treble Treble'
Brown an injury doubt for Scottish Cup final
Scott Brown is an injury doubt for the Scottish Cup final, according to the Daily Record. The Celtic captain has suffered a broken toe and is likely to be absent of Sunday’s final Scottish Premiership game of the season, at home to Hearts. Brown has been playing through the pain barrier and visited a hospital for a scan on Thursday. The report states that Celtic’s medical team “face an anxious wait before discovering the full extent of the damage”, with Brown “desperate” to play in the cup final. Hearts are also the Hoops’ opponents at Hampden Park on May 25th, as Neil Lennon’s side look to seal the ‘treble treble’.

The Hoops completed yet another treble of the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup.
Neil Lennon’s side had to come from behind to secure the treble treble, with Hearts taking a second-half lead at Hampden Park.
Ryan Edwards put Hearts in front with his second-half strike, but the lead wouldn’t last long.
Odsonne Edouard equalised ten minutes later from the spot, levelling the tie.
The French forward would then score the winner late on, hitting home with just eight minutes left on the clock.
Edouard’s goal was enough to wrap up the win, and secure Celtic’s third Scottish domestic treble in a row, continuing their domination of Scottish football.
Here are several key images from the win by the Hoops.
Lennon praises "superstar" Edouard as he reacts to "remarkable" treble treble
Neil Lennon has praised Odsonne Edouard in the aftermath of what he described as a “remarkable” achievement, labelling the striker a “superstar” after his double helped Celtic win a third consecutive domestic treble. The Hoops secured their unprecedented treble-treble after coming from a goal down to beat Hearts 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final in a victory that saw Celtic offer Lennon the chance to become the Hoops’ next permanent manager. The Northern Irishman took interim charge earlier this season following Brendan Rodgers’ controversial departure to Leicester City, and praised Celtic’s “remarkable” achievement following their win over Hearts, BBC Sport report.
Kennedy claims only 90s supporters will full appreciate triple treble.
Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy claims that only fans who followed Celtic through the 90s will fully appreciate the gravity of what the triple treble means. The Hoops completed the historic achievement two weeks ago, beating Hearts at Hampden Park, winning the club their ninth consecutive trophy. Celtic’s domestic dominance will certainly appease fans, but to write their own bit of history in the fashion that they did this season won’t likely be replicated any time soon.
