Adam Idah revelled in his last-gasp winner for Celtic in their Scottish Cup final victory over Rangers, but admits he is uncertain of his future.

The Norwich City loanee, who arrived from Carrow Road in February on a deal until the end of the season, was the hero at Hampden Park as the Scottish Premiership champions completed the double in dramatic fashion.

Substitute Idah reacted quickest in the 90th minute, with the final goalless and seemingly heading for extra-time, pouncing on the loose ball to slot away the rebound after Jack Butland could only parry Paulo Bernardo’s fierce strike.

And the Republic of Ireland international revealed his joy at delivering the goods for Brendan Rodgers’ side at such a crucial moment.

“I came here to try and score as many goals as I can,” he told BBC Scotland. “I didn’t think I’d score a goal like this, in front of all these fans – it’s an amazing feeling.

“It’s hard to put it into words. Everyone can see what it means to the players, the fans. Especially from a boy, being Irish, always supporting Celtic, it’s amazing.

“Football’s a tricky situation. I do love it here. It’s a great club. I’m still contracted with Norwich City, who knows what will happen?”

Meanwhile, skipper Callum McGregor saluted the character demonstrated by his team-mates in securing the double against their bitter rivals.

“The mentality in this group, inside this building, inside this club, the fanbase – we just want to win trophies,” he said.

“We know it’s never going to be perfect, you’re never going to turn up in all the cup finals. Rangers are a good team, they made it a good old-fashioned derby game, big tackles in there.

“But this group – they find the moment of quality, they stick together and they come out winners.

“Honestly, I’m delighted. If we turned up today and didn’t win, everyone forgets about the league, we understand the pressure we’re under.”
