Hibs skipper David Gray’s last-minute Scottish Cup winner has been named the sporting moment of the year at the Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards.

Tennis ace Andy Murray was a double winner at a glittering ceremony attended by more than 600 people at Edinburgh’s International Conference Centre, the Wimbledon and Olympic champion named both Scottish sports person and male athlete of the year.
