Hibernian won the Scottish cup in style on Saturday, winning its first cup in 114 years after David Gray broke a tie with a stoppage-time header against Rangers.

Gray made a run to the outside of the six-yard box and got onto the end of a well-placed corner kick from Liam Henderson, finishing clinically and sealing the game.

The French broadcast team working the match gifted us with an especially incredible call of the play, which you can watch below.

It’s great, trust us.

However, it got insane shortly afterward as fans rushed the pitch afterward, creating a scene that required police horses to restore the calm.

Rangers released a statement on the matter, after its players and staff were endangered by the chaos.

“RANGERS Football Club is shocked at the disgraceful behaviour of Hibs fans at full time.

Rangers players and staff were assaulted by these fans who invaded the pitch and in the interests of their safety could not return to the pitch for the medal presentation.

There can be no place for the violent behaviour witnessed at the end of the Final and Rangers fully expect the Scottish Football Association and Police Scotland to launch an investigation to find out where security measures failed.

The Club would like to commend Rangers fans for the restraint they showed under severe provocation.”
