Brendan Rodgers is hoping to lead Celtic to their fourth trophy in the space of 12 months when they play Motherwell in Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final.
The Hoops beat Aberdeen at Hampden 12 months ago – they went on to clinch the domestic Treble and their unbeaten domestic run now stands at 64 matches.
Celtic beat Hibernian 4-2 in the semi-final and are aiming to win the trophy for the 17th time in their history against Stephen Robinson’s men.
Rodgers said: “Stephen has done a brilliant job there this season, he has really galvanised the team. They have an identity of how they play, they believe in it and they have had results with it.
“The semi-final was also on the back of a tough game in midweek (against Bayern Munich) but we had a great result against Hibs and we know we can score goals.
“I think it’s a great competition the way it has been structured because it gives you a real focus on that pre-Christmas period and it can give you something tangible to show for your work.
“That’s our aim - we respect that it will be a very tough game but we are going to have a lot of supporters at a stadium we enjoying playing in and the pitch is great for us.”
