Where are they now: Hearts Scottish Cup winners from victory v Hibs in 2012

Where are the men that led Hearts to a stunning 5-1 Scottish Cup Final win against Hibs in 2012?

All eyes will be on Tynecastle on Wednesday night as Hearts host Edinburgh rivals Hibs as the two clubs meet for the third time this season.

As it stands, it is the midweek hosts that hold the upper hand after they followed up a 2-2 Tynecastle draw in October with a 1-0 win at Easter Road as Lawrence Shankland got the only goal of a festive clash. And it was Hearts that certainly held the upper hand in the 2012 Scottish Cup Final as the two rivals met at Hampden Park on a day when emotions were polarised on both sides of the capital.

It seems remarkable to think Hearts held a narrow advantage at half-time as James McPake got Hibs back into the game after Darren Barr and Rudi Skacel had put Paulo Sergio's side in control. But there was no holding Hearts back in the second-half as Skacel's second of the day followed a quickfire double from Ryan McGowan and Danny Grainger to give their side a memorable 5-1 win.

But where are the men that lead Hearts to victory that day after writing their name into Hearts folklore?
