Celtic are the current Scottish Cup holders, having secured the 2023/24 after beating rivals Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final 2024. The Parkhead side's then loanee striker Adam Idah scored the game's only goal in the 90th minute, to help Brendan Rodgers and his players secure a domestic double. 

The Scottish Cup competition itself is the second-longest-running football tournament in the world, second only behind England's FA Cup. 

And while the Scottish Cup is the second oldest tournament in world football, the Scottish Cup trophy itself is the oldest. Unlike the FA Cup trophy, which has been replaced more than once since its inception in November 1871, the silverware Scottish teams play for today is the same one those competed for in 1874.
