Celtic wins League Cup, receives trophy from Rod Stewart

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Rock star Rod Stewart handed over the Scottish League Cup to Celtic players after his beloved club won its first title under manager Ronny Deila on Sunday.

Celtic won the competition for the 15th time by beating 10-man Dundee United 2-0 in the final at Hampden Park.

The team is also three points clear with a game in hand in its Scottish Premiership title defense, and remains in contention for the Scottish Cup in Deila’s first season in charge.

“I’m very happy and proud of the boys today,” the Norwegian manager said. “I am so happy we can experience this.”.

Kris Commons put Celtic ahead in the 28th minute and James Forrest added a second in the 79th to keep the Glasgow club on course for the treble.

United had captain Sean Dillon sent off in the 56th for a reckless challenge on Emilio Izaguirre to make its task even harder.

Celtic’s margin of victory should have been bigger, but Forrest missed a late penalty.
