In the final against Heart of Midlothian from Edinburgh, the team of team manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst only kept the upper hand after 120 minutes.
After the regular season, it had been 0-0, then the substitute Ryan Jack (94.) and Scott Wright (97.), who came on in the course of the second section, scored the goals of 2-0 after extension.
In the Hampden Park in Glasgow, sold out with over 50,000 spectators, the Rangers, who had lost the endgame of the Europa League against Eintracht Frankfurt last Wednesday (5: 6), only laboriously into play.
For over 90 minutes, both finalists fought a duel at eye level.
In the extension, the higher individual quality of the favorite prevailed.
The Rangers won the trophy for the 34th time, but the record winner remains the arch and city rival Celtic, who won the Cup 40 times.
