The Celtic captain has to big reasons to be happy today: he won the treble treble with his club and also his manager Neil Lennon will stay.

Odsonne Edouard scored twice to give Celtic the 2-1 win over Hearts in the Scottish Cup tonight.

With this result the Scottish Premier League side has won a “treble treble,” but there is more good news to make them happy.

Interim manager Neil Lennon has been offered the job as Celtic’s boss for the next season.

And this two good news make the team’s captain Scott Brown a very happy man.

“It’s great,” he said to STV.

“He was phenomenal for me the first time around and he’ll be phenomenal for the lads.”

“They’ll all learn because he’s a winner. he wants to win trophies and he’s in the right place for that,” he added.

“He’ll have a little holiday, let his hair down, and then come in and there’s a lot of recruitment to be done in the summer.”

Brown continued: “He’ll bring in new players, he’ll bring in quality players.”

“He’s done that in the past with Victor Wanyama and Virgil van Dijk so he’s got a great eye for a player and I’m sure he’ll do it again.”

“Phenomenal. I think the lads have worked hard all season and we had to dig deep in some games,” the captain said about winning the cup.

“A lot of people have written us off and said we’ve not had a great season but we’ve won all three trophies that are there for us to win.”
