Hibernian 3-2 Glasgow Rangers
Anthony Stokes scored twice as Hibernian beat Rangers in the Scottish Cup final to win the competition for the first time in 114 years.
There were remarkable scenes following the final whistle in a pulsating game as Hibs fans poured onto the pitch at Hampden Park, delaying the trophy presentation.
The Irish international, on loan from Celtic, put the Edinburgh side after just three minutes when he cut in from the left and whipped a low shot to the net.
Kenny Millar equalised for Rangers before the break and Rangers moved ahead on 64 minutes when Andy Halliday fired a brilliant shot past Donegal-born keeper Conrad Logan.
Stokes levelled ten minutes from time with a bullet header and Hibs pulled off an unlikely win in stoppage time when captain David Gray nodded Alan Stubbs’ side ahead.
This unleashed a wave of pent-up emotion and after the final whistle fans invaded the field, leading to confrontations with rival Rangers fans and the authorities.
Rangers won the Championship this season, Scotland’s second tier of league football, to secure their return to the top flight after years of financial turmoil, with Hibs finishing a distant third.
The end to Hib's hoodoo meant they also became first lower league club to win the trophy since East Fife in 1938.
Rangers boss Mark Warburton named only 16 players, as he had done in the semi-final against Celtic, while Stubbs, with a much larger squad, opted for a front pairing of Jason Cummings and Stokes.
And it was the Easter Road strike duo who combined to give the Leith side the early lead.
With the Rangers defence sleeping, Cummings sent Stokes down the left channel and he cantered into the box with right-back James Tavernier trailing and with Rob Kiernan standing off, he slipped the ball past keeper Wes Foderinghan at the far post.
It was a goal of stunning simplicity and minutes later the shaky Kiernan was turned easily in the box by Cummings but defender Danny Wilson blocked the shot.
The Ibrox side looked disjointed but found themselves level when Miller beat defender Darren McGregor to a Tavernier cross to bullet a header past Logan.
Moments later, with the Gers fans still celebrating, Stokes took a McGinn pass and drove a 25-yards shot off the inside of the post with the ball rebounding wide.
But Rangers had shrugged off earlier nerves and in the 32nd minute Miller's header from a Barrie McKay corner cannoned off the crossbar.
It was turning into a thrilling final, the first between two second-tier clubs.
With five minutes of the first half remaining Foderingham made a fine save from Stokes and then from Cummings following the resultant corner before Stokes headed wide from Gray's cross.
The Republic of Ireland forward drew another good save from Foderingham with a powerful drive from 25 yards in the 50th minute but the Govan men survived the corner.
This even contest turned in favour of the Championship winners in the 64th minute when, from 22 yards out, Halliday arrowed a shot past Logan.
Hibs looked demoralised as Rangers took control but there was another twist on its way.
Stokes blazed a shot over the bar in the 76th minute but three minutes later he was more accurate when he escaped the attention of Tavernier to head in a corner from substitute Liam Henderson, on for Liam Fontaine.
Foderingham denied Stokes again in stoppage time but from the corner Gray headed in to become a Hibs legend although there will be ramifications after the scenes at the end
