Celtic completed the domestic treble at the weekend, as Neil Lennon’s side got the better of Heart of Midlothian 2-1 at Hampden Park in Glasgow in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday afternoon.

The performance of the Hoops was far from impressive, and the Glasgow giants also had to come from behind to win against their Scottish Premiership rivals.

While it was a joyous occasion for the Hoops, one Hearts player was not impressed with two Celtic players.

 

After the match, Celtic midfielder Scott Brown was seen goading Hearts forward Uche Ikpeazu.

Hearts striker Steven MacLean stepped in and intervened, and the 36-year-old has criticised both Brown and his Celtic teammate Mikael Lustig.

MacLean told The Scottish Sun: “The celebrations, there was no need for it but that’s what he’s like. Him and Lustig, that’s what they do and it’s not the first time.”

Meanwhile, Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal believes that the referee was wrong to give Celtic a penalty in the 63nd minute.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper has suggested that Odsonne Edouard went down to win the penalty, and that he did not commit a foul on the Celtic striker.

Edouard stepped up to take the penalty and scored, making it 1-1, with Neil Lennon’s side going on to win 2-1.

Zlamal told The Scottish Sun: "For me it's absolutely not a penalty. I'm 100 per cent sure that I didn't touch him. But the referee said penalty.

"It's very disappointing as well because I touched the ball, but it went in. It was the most important reason why we didn't beat Celtic.”
