Idah's goal hands Celtic Scottish Cup title against Rangers

Idah's goal hands Celtic Scottish Cup title against Rangers

Nigerian-born Adam Idah struck in added time with the only goal of the final as Celtic completed a league and cup double on Saturday evening over Rangers to win the Scottish Cup.

Chances were at a premium and few until Idah pounced from six yards when Rangers goalkeeper Jack Butland parried Paulo Bernardo's fierce drive onto his path.

The goal sent the green and white half of Hampden Park wild and provided the perfect sucker punch to a Rangers side who had the better of the second half.

After an hour, half-time substitute Abdallah Sima thought he had given Rangers the lead after kneeing home on the goalline after James Tavernier's dangerous corner.

But the goal was overturned when referee Nick Walsh was sent to the monitor after VAR John Beaton spotted a push on Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart by Nicolas Raskin.
