Foderingham breaks silence on “disgraceful” Cup final scenes

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham broke his silence on the “disgraceful” scenes after the Scottish Cup final, demanding action to be taken.

The Light Blues goalkeeper was caught up in the Hibernian fans’ pitch invasion after the Leith club ended their 114-year wait for Scottish Cup success following their 3-2 win over Rangers.

Video footage appeared to show Foderingham being shoved by a fan as thousands of supporters swarmed onto the pitch after the final whistle was blown.

A club statement said Rangers’ players and staff were assaulted and the club have demanded an independent inquiry into the unsavoury scenes – no player had since said anything about the incident.

Foderingham though admits the pain of the defeat still hurts but is calling for action to be taken after the Hampden chaos.

He tweeted: “Still getting over the disappointment of Saturday! A bad end to what has been a great season for the club. We go again in 4 weeks.

“Massive thank you for the outstanding support this season… It has been a pleasure to play in front of such special fans this year.

“As for the disgraceful scenes after the game I for one think action must be taken! No player should have to evade attack on the pitch 3/3.”
