Celtic 1-0 Rangers

Late Adam Idah goal seals Celtic's double

2024/05/25 17:37

Celtic secured the double by defeating Rangers 1-0 in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park, thanks to a 90th-minute goal from Adam Idah.

In the first half, the Hoops maintained possession and repeatedly entered Rangers' box, but the Rangers defense stood firm, clearing the ball before Celtic could create any clear-cut chances on target.

Joe Hart made a low save on a Fabio Silva shot in the 6-yard box, while Jack Butland made a fingertip save to push the ball away from danger. As a result, the teams went into the break tied at 0-0.

The Gers thought they had scored in the 58th minute when James Tavernier's corner was finished at the back post by substitute Abdallah Sima. 

However, VAR disallowed the goal due to a push from Nicolas Raskin on Joe Hart, keeping the score level.

The second half was intense, with several yellow cards issued to both sides. Late in the game, both goalkeepers were tested again: Hart saved a shot from Abdallah Sima, and Jack Butland rushed out to gather the ball from Daizen Maeda's feet at the other end.

As the game seemed to go to extra-time, Celtic went aheadin the 90th minute. 

Substitute Paulo Bernardo made a great forward run and fired a long-range effort that was initially saved by Jack Butland, but substitute Adam Idah was perfectly positioned to slot home the rebound, securing the victory and the double for Celtic.

Our possession in the first half was impressive, but credit to Rangers' defense for holding strong. Joe Hart and Jack Butland also made some crucial saves to keep us in the game.

However, Celtic continued to push forward and were finally rewarded in the 90th minute when Idah rose highest to head in a corner kick and secure the double for the Hoops.

However, in the end, it was the Hoops who emerged victorious.

Disappointment tone

As a Celtic fan, it's a huge disappointment to see our team struggle to score against Rangers in the Scottish Cup final. Despite maintaining possession and creating chances, we couldn't find the back of the net until the very last minute. And to have a goal disallowed by VAR, it just adds to the disappointment. But we'll take the win and the double nonetheless.
