Hibs to ban supporters involved in Cup Final fracas

 Football News 24/7 
Scottish FA Cup winner Hibernian have said they will take action against a number of supporters identified as being involved in incidents on the pitch at Hampden following the Final on May 21.

Sanctions including life bans and indefinite bans have been imposed so far.

The incidents took place at the end of the match, which saw Hibs beat Rangers 3-2.

Leeann Dempster, chief executive of Hibernian FC, said: “While Police Scotland will continue with their own inquiries, we will continue to review what happened and take the action we think appropriate to protect the Club’s good name. We will also co-operate fully with the Independent Commission established by the SFA.

“We have initiated contact with the supporters informing them of our decision. We will continue to identify and impose appropriate sanctions against others involved in unacceptable behaviour.”

Meanwhile it looks like winning manager Alan Stubbs is set to join Championship Rotherham as their new boss after Hibs allowed Stubbs to talk to the Yorkshire side.
