Celtic seals Scottish Cup glory with Idah’s last-gasp winner against rangers

Celtic secured a league and cup double in a thrilling Scottish Cup final, thanks to Adam Idah’s dramatic 90th-minute winner, defeating arch-rivals Rangers 1-0 at Hampden Park.

The match was tense with few clear chances for either team. The decisive moment came when Rangers’ goalkeeper Jack Butland parried a fierce shot from Paulo Bernardo, allowing Idah to score from six yards out.

The goal electrified the Celtic fans and delivered a crushing blow to Rangers, who had been the better team in the second half.

Rangers thought they had taken the lead an hour in when Abdallah Sima, a half-time substitute, scored from James Tavernier’s corner. However, the goal was disallowed after VAR spotted a push on Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart by Nicolas Raskin.

Despite this setback, Rangers continued to press, showing resilience. But Celtic, who had struggled to test Butland for most of the game, found their decisive moment at the end.

Bernardo, a loanee from Benfica, made a powerful run and shot, which Butland could only push into Idah’s path, sealing Celtic’s consecutive Scottish Cup triumphs.
