HIBERNIAN SCOTTISH CUP FINAL - 26/05/2013
Celtic completed a league and cup double today by beating Hibernian 3-0 in the final at Hampden. Over 51,000 fans saw Neil Lennon's team take an early lead in the eigth minutes when Gary Hooper side-footed an Anthony Stokes cross past Williams in the Hibs goal. The second had the same two players combining to put Hibs out of contention by the half-hour mark, Stokes again supplying the cross and Hooper the finish. Hooper could have completed the first cup final hat-trick since the Dixie Deans version in 1972 when Lustig burst up the right wing and crossed the ball into the Celtic hit man's path. Hooper mis-kicked and missed his chance but the ball broke to Joe ledley and he lashed his shot past Williams for Celtic's third. The Hibees left in their droves and the Celtic fans rejoiced. This was a record 36th time that Celtic have won the cup, let's hope there's many more to come.
