Celtic won the Scottish Cup after beating Motherwell 3-0 in the final at Hampden Park here on Saturday.

And the win, Celtic's 35th Scottish Cup triumph, also gave Neil Lennon, who has received death threats and been attacked on the touchline this term, his first major trophy as a manager.

South Korea's Ki Sung-Yueng put Celtic in front in the 32nd minute with a powerful 25-yard shot.

Motherwell could have been level minutes later when Gavin Gunning's long-range shot hit the underside of the crossbar.

It took Celtic until the 76th minute to double their lead when Motherwell's Stephen Craigan diverted a Mark Wilson shot into his net.

And two minutes from time, Celtic's victory was sealed by Charlie Mulgrew's free-kick as the Hoops, pipped to the Scottish Premier League title by a point by arch-rivals Rangers, ended the season with silverware.
