The story of last year’s final…
Celtic lifted the trophy thanks to Christopher Jullien’s winning goal.
But the real hero for Neil Lennon’s men was goalkeeper Fraser Forster, whose heroics between the sticks prevented a dominant Rangers side from picking up their first silverware under Steven Gerrard.
The Parkhead club – knocked out of this year’s competition by Ross County this afternoon – were reduced to ten men in the second half after Jeremie Frimpong was sent off for a last-man foul on Alfredo Morelos.
However, the Light Blues’ Colombian star’s spot-kick was saved by Forster.
The England international – who returned to Southampton in the summer – said: “You just go with your gut instinct. Luckily enough for me, I went the right way and I was able to make the save.
“I just had a feeling and I decided which way to go. I didn’t overthink it.
“There have been plenty of times when I’ve gone one way and the penalty taker has gone the other and it’s gone in.
“As long as you win in a final that’s the main thing. We’ve been here before, played better and lost.”
