Tom Rogic lashed a left-footed stunner as Celtic claimed the Scottish League Cup and their 100th major trophy with a 3-0 win over Aberdeen.

Socceroos star Rogic strolled into the right hand side of the box before bringing the ball back onto his left foot and firing into the far bottom corner of the goal to open Celtic's account on 16 minutes.

Shortly after man of the match Forrest doubled the Hoops' advantage before the halftime break.

Moussa Dembele added a third from the penalty spot after Anthony O'Connor brought down Forrest as Celtic wrapped up their landmark major trophy to the delight of the two influential midfielders.

Rogic was full of excitement to score a goal as Celtic secured a milestone trophy.

"I think the fans deserve it, we deserve it as the playing squad because we have worked hard all season - it's no less than we deserve," Rogic said.

"We won 3-0 but it's not easy against Aberdeen. They have pushed us very close in the last few years but I feel this season we have gone up a level, but there are days like this that you enjoy playing football."

Forrest was in agreeance with the Australian and lauded his teammates.

"We are absolutely delighted, we have done brilliantly to get to the final and obviously winning it is tremendous and we are going to enjoy it.

"We are absolutely delighted to win another trophy for this club and buzzing to have won it."
