The Scottish Cup Final 2024 took place on Saturday May 25, 2024, with Celtic overcoming Rangers 1-0 on the day.  

The last time the sides met in a Scottish Cup final was in 2002, when Rangers won the Old Firm derby 3-2 at the national stadium. That afternoon, 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.

The Scottish Cup Final 2024 was the fifth and final time the Glasgow sides faced each other this season, following four encounters in the Scottish Premiership.

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 Review: Cyriel Dessers scores against HeartsCyriel Dessers scores against Hearts (Image: SNS)
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.
