Celtic vs Rangers LIVE! Scottish Cup final result, match stream and latest updates today

Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 in a cagey Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on Saturday with a 90th-minute winner from Adam Idah as Brendan Rodgers's side completed the league and cup double.

After a goalless first half, Rangers thought they had scored from a corner when Abdallah Sima netted at the far post but it was chalked off following a VAR review which showed Nicolas Raskin had fouled Celtic keeper Joe Hart.

Celtic eventually took the lead when Paulo Bernardo dribbled into the final third and took a shot from the edge of the box that was palmed away by Jack Butland, but Idah was in the right place at the right time to fire home the rebound.

The victory gave Celtic a record-extending 42nd title while League Cup winners Rangers finished runners-up in both the Premiership and the Scottish Cup this season.

Celtic's recent record against Rangers is ominous

14:40 , Jonathan Gorrie

While a cup final can see the form go out the window, Celtic’s recent record against Rangers is very strong.

The Bhoys have lost just one of the last 11 derbies.

Philippe Clement speaks ahead of Celtic vs Rangers

14:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

Gers coach Philippe Clement, meanwhile, said: "These are the great moments. It's an amazing occasion to have an Old Firm in a Cup final.

"John [Lundstram] has played a lot of minutes this season, around 5000. That's a lot of games, so we want more freshness. I expect an intense start and Nico Raskin has pushed hard in the last couple of weeks.

"The last couple of months have been crazy [with injuries]. It's not the preparation you want towards a cup final. It was a puzzle this week, too. Ridvan trained for the first time yesterday, but he's starting. It's not an excuse.

"We've only trained with the starting XI once this week. The two teams know each other well so it's always about tweaks. We won't finish with this XI so we worked with all the squad."

Brendan Rodgers sends final pre-match message ahead of Celtic vs Rangers

14:21 , Jonathan Gorrie

Speaking to BBC Scotland, the Bhoys boss said: “It's a wonderful occasion and one we are very excited about.

"James Forrest will be excited, despite being a multiple-time winner. I didn't need to change too much. The team has progressed throughout the season and we arrive here playing some fantastic football and fighting for each other. So, no need to change.

"I think we've done well in these games but this is a different occasion. You still need to turn up and perform. These types of games always bring different challenges but, as I told the players, they are only hurdles. We need to get over them and impose our way of playing.

"This is a club steeped in a great history of winning. But it's also for this team to create its own history and keep winning."
