Joe Hart celebrated in style as Celtic lifted the League Cup against Rangers at Hampden Park yesterday.

The experienced Englishman could be seen beating the Hoops badge as he paraded around the ecstatic supporters at full-time in Mount Florida.

Ange Postecoglou's side ran out winners thanks to a double from Kyogo Furuhashi as a late Alfredo Morelos strike proved not enough for their Govan opponents to haul themselves back into the game.

And footage has now emerged of Hart taking a leaf out of rival goalkeeper Allan McGregor's book as he fired the match ball into the Celtic crowd before roaring in celebration.

Gers hall of famer McGregor sent a loose ball into the Celtic fans in frustration during the contest as Rangers attempted to take a throw-in on the far side.

After the full-time whistle, Hart said: “I thought it was a great game. I thought we kept our cool in some tough moments. We played really well and won it our way, Rangers are a good time and hard to put away. They pushed hard. We had enough in the end for this anthem [You’ll Never Walk Alone] to be blasted and send fans home happy.

“Me personally, it’s everything. It’s that moment. You’ve got to enjoy it. Look at this, look at it, just look at it, it’s special. You see it and you feel it. This club’s so special and it means so much to people.

“Us, putting our heart and soul into the pitch, however it turns out I’m pretty sure they’ll be behind us. But it demands trophies, we’re aware of that and we’re very, very proud.”

His manager Postecolgou added: “It’s a cup final and rarely will one side dominate, although I thought we were fantastic in terms of our football in such a big game with the atmosphere the way it was, we scored two excellent goals.

“Credit to Rangers they stuck in there and went a bit more direct and we had to defend a lot and they got some encouragement from their goal.

“But we have a real resilient group of players and the back four were outstanding in dealing with what they needed to deal with in terms of crosses.

“We had to navigate a sticky patch and finished strong and probably should have put the game away but we earned it by doing all the facets of the game.”
