Christopher Jullien scored the only goal of the match on the hour mark, as the Hoops won the game despite playing most of the second half with 10 men due to the sending-off of Jeremie Frimpong.

 

The star of the show in the Scottish League Cup final was Fraser Forster. Not only did the English goalkeeper - signed on loan from Premier League club Southampton in the summer transfer window - made a number of brilliant saves in the first half, but the 31-year-old also saved a penalty from Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos in the second period.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport and BT Sport, was following the match, and he has praised Forster on Twitter, and so has 23-year-old Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Liam Kelly, who was on the books of the Gers from 2006 until 2018.
