  • Denayer's delight at first silverware success

    Denayer's delight at first silverware success

    By: Mark Henderson on 16 Mar, 2015 12:07

  • JASON Denayer was thrilled to win the first major trophy of his professional career yesterday (Sunday) at Hampden but it’s only fuelled his desire to lift the treble at Celtic.

    The 19-year-old helped keep Dundee United at bay at one end as the Hoops recorded a 2-0 victory over the Terrors in the Scottish League Cup final, presented by QTS.

    Kris Commons’ close-range finish put the Bhoys ahead at the National Stadium, before substitute James Forrest doubled the advantage with a fine strike from 18 yards.

    By this stage, the Tannadice side had been reduced to 10 men following Sean Dillon’s red card for a high tackle on Emilio Izaguirre and there would be no way back for them.

    Forrest could then have made the margin of victory more emphatic but saw his spot-kick saved by Radoslaw Cierzniak, after the winger had earned the penalty himself.

    That proved irrelevant as the celebrations got into full swing once the final whistle sounded and it was a moment to treasure for Denayer, who joined Celtic on a season-long loan from Manchester City in August.

    And the Belgian youngster has set his sights on recreating that special sensation in the remaining two domestic competitions this season.

    Speaking exclusively to the official Celtic website, Denayer said: “I felt good as this was my first final as a professional and I was very happy to win. I enjoyed the day a lot and I hope we can go on to win the treble now.

    “It was game to enjoy, and we played with a style, did well and won the final. The start was a bit difficult but after that we played very well and when we scored the first goal, we felt better and went on from there.

    “The celebrations were very good and special. There was a great atmosphere in the dressing room with everyone. You put the hard work in to win trophies and I feel very happy.

    “I came here to win trophies and now I have experienced that. The manager wants to win the treble so winning the first trophy was very important and he was very happy. 

    “We all want to win the treble and we now we will focus on the next game and working hard like we did on Sunday.”
