Celtic retain the City of Glasgow Cup!
The Final of the 2016-17 City of Glasgow Cup took place at Firhill Stadium, Glasgow, on 20th April.
A keenly contested match saw holders Celtic take the lead, but Rangers equalised just before the break.
In the second half, Celtic scored again to win the City of Glasgow Cup, sponsored by City Refrigeration Holdings, for the fourth successive year.
