VIDEO: Hibernian win Scottish Cup with stoppage time winner, supporters invade pitch

The year was 1902, the turn of the century had just occurred and a young Hibernian club had just won the Scottish Cup for the second time in their history. It looked like the first of many Scottish Cups to come for Hibs. Who knew that it would take 114 years (and finishing runner-up in 10 of those years) for Hibs to lift the Scottish Cup again?

It was a thrilling game as Hibs and recently promoted Rangers battled in what is surely to go down as one of the most memorable Scottish Cup finals in history. After going up 1-0 after the third minute thanks to Anthony Stokes, Rangers scored two unanswered goals courtesy of Kenny Miller (27′) and Andy Halliday (64′), and for a while it looked as if Rangers were going to lift the cup.

But, it was Stokes again who leveled the game in the 80th minute as the thumped a header past ‘Gers keeper Wesley Foderingham. It looked as if Hibs had the momentum as the game was surely heading for PKs, but then some magic from Hibs captain David Gray in stoppage time clinched the long-awaited title for them.

From a well-taken corner, David Gray managed to slip away from his defender and got great contact with the ball as he headed it in with power as Foderingham had no chance to defend as the game-winner found its way into the net. Watch Gray’s fantastic winner:

As the Hibs fans went into a frenzy of the potential of winning their first Scottish Cup in over a century, the final whistle blew and the supporters could not contain their joy. As the Hibs players celebrated on the pitch, a mob of supporters joined them as they invaded the field to celebrate with their beloved Hibs.

What a time to be a Hibs fan. Congrats to Hibernian. Hopefully, it won’t take them another century to see another moment like this.
