Rangers manager Steven Gerrard and Ryan Jack
Christopher Jullien scored the only goal of the match on the hour mark, as Neil Lennon’s side won the game despite playing most of the second half with 10 men due to the sending-off of Jeremie Frimpong.
Former Hibernian forward McManus, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, was following the match, and he has stated on Twitter that Rangers were the better team in the final.
Meanwhile, former Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Shay Given, who now works as a coach at Derby County in the Championship in England, has revelled in the win for Celtic and has praised Southampton-owned goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
