Hibernian have given life bans and indefinite bans to a number of supporters involved in the Scottish Cup final disorder at Hampden, the club have announced.

Hibs ended their 114-year wait for Scottish Cup success after captain David Gray’s last-minute header gave Alan Stubbs’ men a 3-2 win.

However, the match was somewhat overshadowed by events after the final whistle which saw some supporters fighting with Rangers fans and opposition players being assaulted.

More than a dozen arrests were made by Police Scotland and the SFA have set up an investigation into the unsavoury scenes.

On Tuesday the club confirmed they have taken action – life bans and indefinite bans – against supporters whom they believe to be have been involved.

The club’s chief executive Leeann Dempster said: “While Police Scotland will continue with their own inquiries, we will continue to review what happened and take the action we think appropriate to protect the Club’s good name.

“We will also co-operate fully with the Independent Commission established by the SFA.

“We have initiated contact with the supporters informing them of our decision. We will continue to identify and impose appropriate sanctions against others involved in unacceptable behaviour.”
