Brendan Rodgers claimed his seventh piece of major silverware as Celtic manager today when his side defeated Aberdeen 1-0 in the Scottish League Cup Final at Hampden Park.
A goal from in form midfielder Ryan Christie was enough for the Hoops to see off a resilient Aberdeen side and Rodgers claimed afterward that of all the trophies that he has lifted during his time in charge of Celtic this one was the most satisfying.
“We played against a tough team at the end of a tough week,” Rodgers told the BBC.
“Probably of all the trophies that we’ve won, this is the most satisfying because it wasn’t an easy start to the season for us.
“The players showed that mentality and strength and talent. Big hearts they’ve got and now another trophy.
“I take great pride in the fact we’ve now won seven trophies in a row, and it feels great, but my happiness is more for the players and the supporters. The players deserve a huge amount of credit because they’ve been amazing since I’ve come in.”
