We posted up an image on social media this evening which came our way after the full-time whistle on Sunday.
It was of a despondent Craig Gordon being consoled by his former Celtic goalkeeping teammate Conor Hazard at full time. They both went through the trials and tribulations of a penalty shootout and it was the Celtic youngster who came out on top.
It wasn’t lost on me at the full-time whistle, Craig Gordon wasn’t far from the place where he famously fell to his knees and to the floor when Tom Rogic was the Hampden hero to bag our first treble.
Now on the other side and hoping to stop Celtic’s dominance, Craig came up short but put a good performance on to allow his team to get to penalties.
Former Celtic goalkeeper Packie Bonner saluted both men after the game.
Congrats to Conor Hazard in winning his first medal on historic day for his club, but also by showing appreciation to Craig Gordon, somebody who has helped him develop as a young goalkeeper. pic.twitter.com/eyxyYFARwd

Hazard was the penalty hero but question marks still remain over who will be Celtic’s goalkeeper going forward.
