Bjarnason scores in the Scottish Youth Cup final

Celtic U-19s beat Hearts 3-1 tonight to secure the Scottish Youth Cup for the second year running.

Iceland U-21 international Teddy Bjarnason gave Celtic the lead on the stroke of half time.

Hearts got the equalizer in the 88th minute with a goal from striker John Neil and the match went into extra time.

During extra time Hearts enjoyed the better of the game but seemingly against the run of play Celtic managed to score two late goals to secure the victory and the Scottish Youth cup and cap off a remarkable season.

Goalkeeper Haraldur Björnsson and midfielder Eggert Gunnthor Jónsson started the match for Hearts.
