Supporters have been a major factor in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 cup triumphs but this year, for the first time ever the match was played out in front of a handful of club officials, stewards, ball-boys and media.
It was an afternoon of high drama as Celtic took the trophy in dramatic fashion after appearing to throw it away three times.

When Ryan Christie and Odsonne Edouard scored in the first half it looked like a case of how many but defensive lapses allowed the Edinburgh side to score twice and take the match to extra-time.
When Craig Gordon saved a penalty from Ryan Christie the trophy was within Hearts grasp but two saves from Conor Hazard presented Kris Ajer with the chance to win the trophy which he accepted with glee to the delight and relief of Celtic fans outside Hampden and elsewhere.
