KIERAN TIERNEY insists there will be no let-up from Celtic as they zero in on a historic treble – only the fourth in the club’s history.
The record-breaking Premiership title and League Cup are already in the Parkhead trophy room and the left-back now has his sights set on Aberdeen at Hampden on Saturday.
Tierney said: “It is a great achievement and we are really proud of it, but we still have our focus on the Cup final.
“We all enjoyed yesterday and the chance to go out and have a party with our own fans, but I don’t think there is anyone here who thinks it is over for us yet.“We have a chance to go and get the Scottish Cup now and this week will be like every other week this season – we will be working hard and pushing to put in the best performances that we can.
“The manager is never going to let us drop the ball. It has been relentless and that is the way we want it.“Now the challenge will be to go out and do it all over again. I don’t know when I believed what we might do.
“I just tried to keep going into each game and I didn’t really want to think about it too much.“It is nice to know that we will be remembered for it, but it isn’t the only thing that we want to be remembered for. There is still so much more for us to aim for here before the season finishes.
“Aberdeen won 6-0 at Partick Thistle yesterday, so they will be coming to Hampden feeling pretty good about themselves. It is up to us to make sure that we go into that game with the same attitude that we have had all season.”The 19-year-old international defender also paid tribute to boss Brendan Rodgers.
Tierney added: “He has been brilliant for me and brilliant for the team.
“I think we all knew he was a top quality manager, but he has taken the pressure off the players and just allowed us to concentrate on getting better.“I feel that I have learned my position so much better this season, I have a greater technical understanding and he has really helped me to develop.
“I can’t thank him enough. To be able to play and be part of a season like that is so special and it never gets tired.“You can never get enough of being able to go and experience days like yesterday. It is what drives us and we want the same again at Hampden.
“That is the way that we want to end the season.”
