Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers had one of the best views of teammate Adam Idah's match-winning strike against Rangers at Hampden on Saturday.

Jogging out from the back towards the half-way line, the 26-year-old watched Paulo Bernado first force the save that pushed the ball into the path of Idah. First to react, the Irishman slotted home and a wall of sound exploded from the Celtic end of the national stadium.

The striker rushed towards the jubilant supporters, followed by many of his teammates.

Carter-Vickers, on the other hand, chose to lay down on the Hamden turf – a celebration that was picked up by the official Scottish Cup's Twitter (X) account.

Viewed from the opposite end of the pitch at ground-level, Carter-Vickers can be seen momentarily holding his head when Rangers keeper Jack Butland pushes Bernado's shot back out.

That stance changes quickly, however, after Idah pounces on the loose ball to score the game's only goal.

With flavours of Craig Gordon's famous grass-kissing celebration on the same pitch seven years ago, when Celtic clinched their 'Invincibles' treble of the 2016/17 campaign, fans enjoyed Alistair Johnston's 'limbs as usual' repost, with many in the replies hailing the American centre-back's moves in the wake of Idah's goal.

"Big CCV having a wee lie down," said one supporter.

Another said: "Love how big CCV always lies [down] at the really BIG goals. Knackered and overjoyed."

"Love [Carter-]Vickers collapsing," said another.

Ahead of Saturday's Scottish Cup final showdown, Carter-Vickers spoke to Premier Sports about what winning the trophy would mean, and how much he enjoyed working with Brendan Rodgers.

"He's a great guy," said Carter-Vickers of his manager. "I think one of his main strengths is how he's managed to keep the group calm throughout the season and always positive and looking ahead. And I think that's really, really helped us this season.

"We're fully aware that all of these games are always unique. And when you look at it in total, the record's good, but the majority of the games have been pretty tight and tough games. So we know we've got to be fully focused and ready for the game."

Idah's lone goal was all that separated the sides after the final whistle on Saturday, as Celtic clinched their 42nd Scottish Cup, and 118th major honour of all time.
