Rangers v Hibernian - William Hill Scottish Cup Final

Hibernian's 114-year wait to win the William Hill Scottish Cup is over after skipper David Gray headed in a stoppage-time winner to beat Rangers 3-2 at Hampden Park.

Anthony Stokes, on loan from Celtic, opened the scoring for Hibs in the third minute, then Kenny Miller equalised in the 27th minute with a header. In the 64th minute Gers midfielder Andy Halliday lashed home from 20 yards before Stokes headed in from a Liam Henderson corner to make it 2-2.

The last time Hibs lifted the Scottish cup was in 1902. So when Gray headed in a stoppage-time winner – no-one could contain themselves.

Sadly some fighting broke out when some Rangers fans then got past stewards. Police horses were eventually brought on to restore order as police and stewards struggled to cope.

Rangers players appeared to be goaded by Hibs supporters as they tried to leave the pitch. Hampden officials said the players would not return to the stand to collect their runners-up medals, receiving them in the changing room instead.

Rangers said some of their players and staff were assaulted.

A statement said: "Rangers Football Club is shocked at the disgraceful behaviour of Hibs fans at full time. Rangers players and staff were assaulted by these fans who invaded the pitch and in the interests of their safety could not return to the pitch for the medal presentation.

"There can be no place for the violent behaviour witnessed at the end of the final and Rangers fully expect the Scottish Football Association and Police Scotland to launch an investigation to find out where security measures failed."
