May. 26, 2013
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Gary Hooper scored twice in the first half as Celtic beat Hibernian 3-0 Sunday in the final of the Scottish Cup to complete the domestic double for Neil Lennon's side.
The league champions went close as early as the seventh minute when Hoops 'keeper Fraser Forster made a great save from a close-range header from Eoin Doyle at Hampden Park.
Hooper ran up the pitch moments later and scored the first of two almost identical goals, both coming from Anthony Stokes' crosses.
Midfielder Joe Ledley sealed the win with a 79th-minute strike.
It was Celtic's 36th cup triumph while Hibernian has not won the competition since 1902.
