THE BIG STORY: Celtic take on Aberdeen today in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park with the chance to complete the treble for only the fourth time in our history. You can read our match preview here and we'll have updates on our twitter and Facebook pages and we'll hopefully have the usual match report and player ratings up tonight. The big news is that Moussa Dembele is fit to play in today's game, but I would still expect Leigh Griffiths to start. Brendan Rodgers has been keeping calm about today's game, and also suggested that the players can handle the 'pressure' of the cup final.

Some former Celts have been talking about the game, with Neil Lennon suggesting that the current squad is on the 'verge of greatness' whilst Pat Bonner has hailed Scott Brown as an 'iconic' Celtic captain.

ON THIS DAY: In 1995, Tommy Burns' Celtic defeated Airdrie 1-0 in the Scottish Cup Final to win our first trophy in six years. The game, which was decided by a Pierre Van Hooijdonk header was instantly forgettable, but the celebration at the end were very memorable. Lets hope for more of the same today.
