Celtic completed a remarkable season by winning their third domestic trophy of the season by defeating Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Final back in May. They did so without the help of star man Kieran Tierney, though.
The left back, who has suited up at right back as well, is wanted by a number of clubs but was knocked out of the game early on thanks to a facial injury from an elbow. As a result of the collision, he was taken from the stadium for treatment.

And on the way back, according to the club’s Twitter, the full back received word of the Hoops victory thanks to Thomas Rogic’s late and dramatic winner. This caused Tierney to get back just in time to lift the trophy along with his teammates, and to join the celebrations with the unbeaten Scottish champions.
