Watch: Edouard Scores Winning Brace As Celtic Secure Historic 'Treble Treble'

It wasn't easy by any stretch of the imagination, but Celtic have made history by securing the 'treble treble' after their 2-1 Scottish Cup final victory over Hearts this afternoon.

Many expected Celtic would have a relatively easy time of things in Hampden Park today, but in reality it was anything but. Hearts were the better team for much of the match, and would take the lead via Ryan Edwards in the 52nd minute.

Entering the final half an hour, Neil Lennon's side were in real trouble. They hadn't even registered a shot on target, but they were handed a lifeline on the hour mark.

Odsonne Edouard was brought down in the penalty area, and the young French striker would step up to dispatch the spot kick himself moments later.

Celtic smelled blood from this point on, and pushed for the all important second goal.

It would be Edouard who provided it, capitalising on a lack of concentration in the Hearts defence before finishing expertly.

Hearts pushed hard for an equaliser in the closing period, but were unable to come up with the goal. Celtic would be crowned champions, winning three consecutive Scottish Cups for the first time in their illustrious history.

This win marks an unprecedented 'treble treble' for Celtic, winning every available domestic honour for the third year on the spin. What an achievement!
