Rangers 1 – 2 Celtic


Kyogo Furuhashi was Celtic’s Hampden hero once again as his double saw them retain the Scottish League Cup with a 2-1 victory over Rangers in a thrilling final.

The Japanese striker, who also scored twice to secure the title last season, returned to the starting line-up after injury to keep the Hoops on course for a domestic treble.

He sent the Celtic fans wild with his opener just ahead of half-time before doubling their lead just after the break.

Alfredo Morelos turned James Tavernier’s free-kick into the net to give Rangers hope, but they could not find a way to end Celtic’s dominance as Michael Beale suffered his first defeat since taking charge at Ibrox.

Celtic have now won the trophy seven times in the last nine seasons, while their Old Firm rivals have not managed to lift the trophy since 2011.
