KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The immediate task in hand relates to whether Aberdeen, who have been beaten five times by Celtic this season, including the League Cup final, which they lost 3-0, can prevent Rodgers from becoming the third manager in his club's history to deliver a treble.

Dermot Desmond, the club's major shareholder, also stated that Rodgers' next target was to lead Celtic into the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Hoops fell behind to an early Jonny Hayes strike before Stuart Armstrong's leveller and Australian global Tom Rogic's dramatic stoppage time strike sealed only the fourth domestic treble in the club's 129-year history. The fans have been unbelievable, they've stuck by us all day. "The cup final, there's a lot of nerves in it".

Celtic have secured numerous records this season as they romped to a sixth Premiership title in a row and lifted the League Cup.

"No, what we can do is create an environment that is fantastic for them to be in".

"Coming in my job was to try and impose an identity in how we play". "We will go there and give 100 per cent".

"When I leave here, people will look at what I did".

"What we've just achieved, I don't think it will sink in for a few days".

They will discover their first opponents in the qualifiers when the draw is made on 19 June and Rodgers' primary focus is on simply negotiating the three rounds which stand between them and the lucrative group stage. And the players have dealt brilliantly with pressure.

Aberdeen strained every sinew, but fell to an all-conquering Celtic at Hampden.

"It's an wonderful feeling, especially for it to happen right at the last minute".

"I've said to the players who are leaving they would have thought winning a cup final or playing in one was for other teams". Some of our football was a bit nervous but at half-time we told the players to stay calm.

"So we'll go away now, some of the players will rest, some have worldwide games, but we'll be back in again and we'll look to go again".

Rogic started the game on the bench but came on in the 27th minute after Kieran Tierney went off with an injury to his mouth after being caught by Jayden Stockley's flailing arm. It was an amazingly proud moment for me.
