Crowd trouble at final whistle as Hibernian beat Rangers to win Scottish Cup


Rangers v Hibernian - William Hill Scottish Cup Final

Crowd trouble marred the end of the Scottish Cup final as Hibernian ended a 114-year wait to win the trophy.

The Scottish Football Association has said it was "appalled" by scenes of disorder as thousands of Hibs fans streamed on to the pitch at the final whistle at Hampden Park and 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.

Hibs won the match 3-2 with a David Gray goal in injury time.

Rangers said some of their players and staff were assaulted. The club has condemned what it described as the "disgraceful behaviour of Hibs fans".

Hampden officials said the players would not return to the stand to collect their runners-up medals, receiving them in the changing room instead.

Police horses were last needed at the 1980 Scottish Cup final between Celtic and Rangers.

As Hibs fans returned to the stands part of the pitch was ripped up and the goal posts were broken by people climbing on them.
