Celtic wins 7th straight domestic trophy in Scottish soccer

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Celtic won its seventh straight domestic trophy under Brendan Rodgers by beating Aberdeen 1-0 to capture the Scottish League Cup on Sunday.

Since taking charge of Celtic in 2016, the former Liverpool manager has won every piece of silverware on offer in Scotland — two Scottish Premierships, two Scottish Cups and now three League Cups. The run of seven trophies in a row matches the achievement of Rangers under Walter Smith in the early 1990s.

Ryan Christie scored the winner in first-half injury time of the final at Hampden Park.

Celtic is currently second in the Scottish Premiership, a point behind Rangers which has played one more game.
