Football Scores: Rangers 2-0 Hearts

Rangers recovered from their heartbreaking Europa League final loss as they produced one of the narrow football scores in the Scottish Cup final. It was their first win since 2009. Their opponent Hearts were looking to add to their third-place finish in the Scottish Premiership. Ryan Jack opened the scoring in the 94th minute before Scott Wright doubled their advantage in the 97th minute.

Managers Reaction

Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst said: “It means a lot. I told the players before the game, we haven’t won anything yet. We came so far in Europe and in the cup, but in the end, you have to work hard and today we did. Very important, it’s always good to end the season with a trophy. It’s a positive and we worked really hard and looked stronger in extra time and we deserved the win today. I’m very impressed and proud of them because it’s been a big week with the final and the farewell of Jimmy (Bell, the club’s former kit man) and today we had to be there. We had pressure to get the trophy and in the end, we did.”

Hearts boss Robbie Neilson said: “We’re disappointed not to win it. I’m proud of the players’ performance today. The first 90 minutes, we were outstanding. Rangers are a very good team – they were in the Europa League final. We had to negate them, but we had some very good chances. The changes Rangers could make, they brought in international players worth £5-£10m – we can’t match that. But we want players who can do that. Any chances you can get and you don’t get in, there’s going to be reflection. I can’t fault the players and the fanbase came through with 22,000 here today. We just couldn’t take that final step.”
