Celtic duo react on Twitter after Youth Cup final win against Rangers

Celtic FC

Celtic hammered Rangers 5-2 in the Scottish Youth Cup final at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Celtic striker Anthony Stokes has taken to social networking site Twitter to revel in the youth team’s victory over Rangers in the Scottish Youth Cup final.

The Bhoys defeated their arch-rivals 5-2 in the final at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Thursday evening.

The star of the show for Celtic was striker Aidan Nesbitt, who scored a memorable and fantastic hat-trick.

Sam Wardrop and Luke Donnelly scored the other two goals for the Hoops, while a Calum Waters own goal and a Dylan Dykes strike contributed to Rangers’ tally.

Celtic were the better team throughout the game, with the likes of Jamie Lindsay, Nesbitt, Paul McMullan and Kieran Tierney all playing well.

Stokes was following the match, and after the victory, he posted the following message on Twitter:

Tierney was delighted to have played his role in the win, and he posted the following message on Twitter while also posing with the trophy with his parents.

Tierney is rated a hugely promising young defender who is expected to challenge for a first-team spot next season.

The teenage left-back has made two appearances in the Scottish top flight in his career, one of which has been as a late substitute.

Last week, Celtic manager Ronny Deila told BT Sport that he expects Tierney to push Emilio Izaguirre for a place in the first team next season (click here to read more).
