The Scottish Cup Final 2024 saw Celtic and Rangers face-off for the fifth and final time this season on Saturday, May 25. A late Adam Idah goal clinched it for Brendan Rodgers' men on the day, in the process helping to secure the league and cup double for the Parkhead side. 

The match was the first time the sides had met in a Scottish Cup Final for 22 years when Rangers won 3-2 on May 4, 2002. That day, John Hartson and Bobo Balde found the net for Martin O'Neill's side – however a Barry Ferguson goal and a Peter Lovenkrands brace secured silverware for Alex McLeish's men.

Before the match, Celtic and Rangers has last met in the Scottish Cup all-told during last year's semi-final, when a first-half header from Jota ensured Ange Postecoglou's men got the better of Michael Beale's that afternoon. Celtic went on to defeat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 in last year's final on June 3, 2023.

The Scottish Cup Final 2024 followed four Glasgow Derby encounters in the Scottish Premiership.

How the Scottish Cup semi-finals were won

Celtic

Celtic overcame Aberdeen in dramatic fashion in last month's semi-final.

After conceding early to a fine Bojan Miovski strike after just two minutes, Nicolas Kuhn equalised on 21. James Forrest fired his side in front minutes after coming on as a substitute over the hour, before Ester Sokler restored parity on the scoreboard in the dying seconds.

Matt O'Riley put Celtic back in front in extra-time with an intelligent finish, before Aberdeen again bounced back – this time via Angus McDonald with less than a minute left on the clock. Celtic ultimately won the ensuing penalty shoot-out 6-5, but not before goalkeeper Joe Hart missed Celtic's fifth penalty from the spot, before heroically saving the decisive kick to win the tie.

Rangers

 

Rangers' 2-0 semi-final victory over Hearts was fairly routine for Philippe Clement's men.

In what was a dominant performance from Rangers, in-form forward Cyriel Dessers put his side in front after five minutes when he fashioned onto a Todd Cantwell through ball, before striking low and hard beyond Craig Gordon.

Fast forward to 78 minutes and a similar offensive pairing saw Cantwell slide Dessers in to the right of goal. The forward's first attempt was blocked by the Hearts keeper, but Gordon could do little about Dessers' decisive follow-up.
