Scottish Cup Gordon confident Celtic will not fall at final hurdle

Celtic fired back nearly immediately when the ball broke to Stuart Armstrong on the edge of the Aberdeen area and he struck a low shot past Joe Lewis to level the scores.

He told TalkSport: "I'm aware of the speculation but I'm thinking about winning this game".

Celtic fans have been absolutely spoiled rotten this season.

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon insists he and his teammates won't let the pressure of making history affect them as they focus on beating Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday.

In a frantic start, Jonny Hayes wasted little time in putting Aberdeen - chasing their first Scottish Cup triumph in 27 years - ahead as he thumped home Niall McGinn's corner after nine minutes. You could never of sat down - any manager - coming in at the beginning of the season and wrote down what we would have done.

"It's impossible to put it into words, but it's probably the best feeling you can have on the football pitch to score the victor in the last minute". My mindset was could I foster a mindset to win in a better way, and as we go through the season can we adapt and adjust the goals as we progress and develop as a team? At this stage of the season a lot of English clubs have finished up and when there are managerial changes and there are players moving on or players going out of contract, there's loads of speculation.

"It would be quite fantastic for them to go through the whole season without getting beat".

"If we can do it we will always be remembered and to be part of that is very special".

"We had moments in the game when we could have got ourselves in front again".

The former Swansea and Liverpool manager, who took over from Norwegian boss Ronny Deila last term, stressed that his side will have enjoyed a "brilliant season" even if things do not go their way against the Dons, who they have beaten five times this campaign.

It is OK finishing second, having a good season and setting records but the ones you remember are the ones where you pick up silverware at the end of the season.
