Rangers FC - Ibrox

Rangers 3-2 defeat by Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup was marred by post-match scenes.

Hibernian beat Rangers 3-2 at Hampden Park on Saturday to end their 114-year wait to win the Scottish Cup.

Rangers had successfully fought back to lead 2-1 with 10 minutes to go, with goals from Kenny Miller and Andy Halliday flipping the game on its head following Anthony Stokes's third-minute opener.

But the Irishman netted against on 80 minutes, before David Gray struck an injury-time winner Hibs as Alan Stubbs's side downed Rangers to banish painful memories in this particular competition.

Moments after the final whistle, thousands of Hibernian supporters invaded the field, while a number of angry Rangers supporters did the same in a collision which was never going to end particularly well for fans of the Glasgow giants.


An official statement from Rangers has suggested that the Gers players and staff were also targeted in the post-match madness, condemning the behaviour of Hibs fans for instigating the chaos.


For Mark Warburton's side, it was a failed chance to win a treble, having already won the Scottish Championship and Petrofac Training Cup this past season.
