Hearts crushed local rivals Hibernian 5-1 at Hampden Park on Saturday to win the first all-Edinburgh Scottish Cup final since 1896.
Hearts, who last won the competition in 2006, surged into a two-goal lead thanks to Darren Barr and Rudi Skacel before James McPake got one back for Hibs before the break.
The turning point came soon after half-time when Hibs defender Pa Saikou Kujabi was sent off for conceding a penalty converted by Danny Grainger and further goals from Ryan McGowan and Skacel completed the rout.
