Celtic Lift William Hill Scottish Cup
Odds On Favourites Celtic Lift William Hill Scottish Cup For Record 35th Time
2/9 favourites, Celtic, lifted the William Hill Scottish Cup for a record 35th time after defeating 3-1 Hibernian by three goals to nil today.
Celtic were incredibly well backed to win the tournament and even started the tournament as odds on favourites at 4/5.
One gutsy punter was so certain that Celtic were going to win the Cup, that he staked £4,000 on that outcome at 1/4.
Gary Hooper opened the scoring and he was well backed to notch the first goal as the 4/1 favourite. By scoring the first goal, he triggered a five figure payout by the Cup sponsors.
"Celtic have done just what was expected of them at the start of the season," said Joe Crilly speaking on behalf of Scottish Cup sponsors, William Hill. "Our odds suggested that they would win this one at the very start of the season and they have done exactly that."
"Credit must go to both sides, who put on a feast of football at Hampden and once again we have had a fantastic William Hill Scottish Cup Final."
