Rangers release statement condemning Hibs fans' behaviour

The behaviour occurred after the ref blew the whistle on Hibs' 3-2 victory over Rangers

Glasgow Rangers Football Club have released a statement via their official website condemning the behavior of Hibs fans after the Scottish Cup Final today.

Hibs fans invaded the pitch following the club's 3-2 victory over Rangers at Hampden Park.

The statement read

‘Rangers Football Club is shocked at the disgraceful behaviour of Hibs fans at full-time,’ the statement read.

‘Rangers players and staff were assaulted by these fans who invaded the pitch and in the interest 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.’

David Gray scored an injury-time winner with his head after Anthony Stokes had drawn Hibs level after 80 minutes to completely stun Rangers. They claimed their first Scottish Cup title in 114 years thanks to Gray's goal.
