ZAMBIA’s export to the Scottish Premier League Fashion Sakala has won his first European trophy with Rangers.
Rangers have won the Scottish Cup with a 2-0 win over Hearts at Hampden after going to extra time for the second time this week.
Goals from Ryan Jack and Scott Wright sealed the win as Allan McGregor said goodbye to Rangers after a glittering career with the club.
After the disappointment of the Europa League final defeat on Wednesday, there were no signs of fatigue or a hangover as the Light Blues dominated much of the 120 minutes without taking their chances.
It is the first time the famous old trophy will head back to Ibrox since 2009 and marks Rangers’ 34th triumph in the competition.
The win is also Rangers’ first major domestic cup win in eleven years and is, hopefully, the first of many during Gio van Bronckhorst’s reign as manager.
The performance of Calvin Bassey for Rangers was one of the best from an Ibrox player since Brian Laudrup single-handedly demolished Hearts in 1998 and the defender proved again today why he has a massive future ahead.
