Hibernian Celtic Premier Sports Cup

Celtic win Premier Sports Cup

Kyogo double earns victory over Hibs

Celtic came from behind to beat Hibernian 2-1 in the final of the Premier Sports Cup at Hampden Park on Sunday afternoon.

Hibs took the lead six minutes after half-time when Paul Hanlon scored with a header from a corner but Kyogo Furuhashi equalised almost immediately.

The Japan striker grabbed the winner 18 minutes from time when he beat keeper Matt Macey with a superb lob to give Ange Postecoglou his first trophy as Parkhead boss.

Hibs, who had David Gray in caretaker charge, hit the post through Kevin Nisbet in the closing minutes and Joe Hart also made an important save as Celtic held on.

It was the Hoops' 20th League Cup triumph overall and their fifth in the past six seasons.
