THE BIG NEWS: It's time to put the celebrations of Lisbon '67 briefly on the back burner and concentrate on tomorrow's Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen, where Celtic will be aiming to complete the treble for only the fourth time in the club's history. We'll have our preview EXTRAVAGANZA of the game in the site later today. No word as yet on if Moussa Dembele will be in the squad, hopefully we'll hear more news later today. Craig Gordon has been talking about the game, saying that the chance of winning a treble means that he doesn't regret not moving to Chelsea in January.

SITE NEWS: Hope everyone likes our new site design, thanks to SB Nation for a good job. We completed our series on Celtic's trebles yesterday by looking at 2000-01, you can read it here.

OTHER NEWS: Celtic's main shareholder Dermot Desmond - over for the cup final and the Lisbon '67 celebrations - has stated that Celtic are aiming for the last sixteen of the Champions League in the future.

Back to the Lisbon Lions celebrations, and Sir Alex Ferguson has saluted the team's achievements as 'the greatest feat in football'.

Ex Celt Pierre Van Hooijdonk thinks that Celtic can reach the Europa League final next season.

ON THIS DAY: In 2007, Celtic completed a league and cup double by defeating Dunfermline 1-0 in the Scottish Cup Final. The game, which wasn't what you'd call a classic, was decided by a sclaffed effort by Jean-Joel Perrier Doumbe in the 85th minute. Fun Fact: this was Neil Lennon's last game as a Celtic player.
