Scottish Cup final in pictures: Elation for Hearts, dejection for Hibs

THERE could only ever be one winner, and unfortunately for Hibs fans that winner was the team in maroon at Hampden today.

Hearts dominated the Scottish Cup final, running out 5-1 winners over their old rivals.

The occasion saw over 50,000 supporters descend on Hampden, most having journeyed through from Edinburgh in the morning to soak up the matchday atmosphere.
