The match between Hibs and Rangers was a pulsating one, which had drama right up until the final whistle.
Hibs had taken the lead early on, but they were quickly pegged back when Kenny Miller found the net for the Ibrox side.
Rangers then scored again in the second-half and they looked favourites to go on and secure a victory at that point.
However, Anthony Stokes brought Hibs level and a last minute header from David Gray ensured that Stubbs’ side were victorious.
It is the first time in 114-years that Hibs have lifted the Scottish Cup, while Rangers’ wait to return to European football continues.
