Livingston promoted; Thistle relegated

Featured

Livingston completed back to back promotions after beating Partick Thistle 1-0 in the second leg of their playoff tie today. David Hopkin’s side, who had won League One in 2016/17, won the two legged tie 3-1 on aggregate and will thus return to the Scottish Premiership after a gap of twelve years. The result saw Thistle relegated, a disappointing result for a club that had finished in the top six last season.

Livi

Livi, who had taken a 2-1 lead from the first leg, secured the win thanks to Keaghan Jacobs’ goal. The midfielder, who had also scored in the first leg, netted shortly after the interval. Connor Sammon had a chance to equalise from the spot for the Jags, but Neil Alexander was on hand to save the penalty.

Celtic 2-0 Motherwell | Rodgers’ men complete Treble

Celtic became the first Scottish side to do a domestic treble in successive seasons as they beat Motherwell 2-0 at Hampden to win the Scottish Cup. Both Jock Stein’s Celtic (1970) and Walter Smith’s Rangers side (1994) had come within one game of doing the Double Treble, but there was no stopping Rodgers’ men, with first half goals from Callum McGregor and Olivier Ntcham sealing a comfortable victory for the Hoops.

Cel Well

It was a disappointing day for Motherwell, who were hoping for their first piece of silverware since their 1991 Cup win, and also means that Hibs, who finished fourth in the Scottish Prem, will go into the Europa League qualifiers next season.

Craig Gordon was relatively untroubled in the Celtic goal, with Curtis Main’s effort and Gael Bigirimana’s free kick the closest Well would come to scoring in this game.
