The history-making stars of Celtic have been revelling in their Scottish Cup win on Instagram over the last 24 hours.

Players such as Shane Duffy, Scott Brown, Ismaila Soro and Leigh Griffiths have all been enjoying their big moment after a dramatic final against Hearts.

It’s great to see them all so happy and unified right now.

Hopefully, that feeling inspires their performances in upcoming matches.

Here are some of the best posts and reactions…

Shane Duffy

Shane Duffy has had a difficult year. The death of his father and isolation from his family due to Covid-19 have both impacted his ability to settle at Celtic, which he has admitted to.

He doesn’t make excuses for himself though and knows he needs to improve to become a Celtic regular.

The Irish captain had a few scares at Hampden yesterday, but ultimately this cup win could be massive for his confidence and happiness in Glasgow.

He was certainly beaming on Instagram with the trophy, with pros like Tony Watt and Darren Randolph taking to the comments to congratulate him.

Leigh Griffiths

Leigh Griffiths, a Celtic hero once again. His goal in extra-time was crucial and typical of his poaching abilities. How many times has he bailed Celtic out now?

He came off the bench and made a fantastic impact. Everyone will be hoping he can go on and become a consistent force at Celtic again.

For now, he can enjoy another winners medal at the club.

Not bad for a man who rival fans mocked and claimed he wouldn’t play football again eh?

His post attracted tens of thousands of likes and reactions from professionals such as Robert Snodgrass and Barry Bannan.

Scott Brown

Scott Brown – a Celtic icon, a Celtic hero, a Celtic legend. That status will never be taken away from him regardless of what happens this season.

The veteran midfield was one of the most passionate players on the pitch yesterday, both winding up the opposition and guiding his teammates through a Hampden battle.

The less patient among us may prefer a starting berth for Ismaila Soro. There’s reason to.

However, if you aren’t happy for Broony right now then it’s time to cheer up and park your feelings elsewhere.

You can’t deny his commitment to winning, nor his commitment to Celtic.

With reactions on Instagram from various people such as Dedryck Boyata, MMA fighter Chris Bungard and actor Martin Compston, he remains one of the most popular people at the club.

Ismaila Soro

While Brown’s career at Celtic is in its twilight, Ismaila Soro’s is just beginning.

The classy Ivorian has been a revelation in Neil Lennon’s team of late and he can look forward to many more appearances in a Hoops shirt. And hopefully many more medals too.

He was clearly delighted with the trophy win at Hampden. It could all be fuel for even better form moving forward.

I am personally hoping we see him in the team as quickly as Wednesday.

Unleash Soro!
