Zambian forward Fashion Sakala Jnr on Saturday won his first trophy in Scotland as FC Rangers won the Scottish Cup for the 34th time in the club’s 150-year history.
The Light Blues beat Hearts 2-0 in extra time at Hampden Park to win the Scottish FA Cup.
Goals from substitutes Ryan Jack and Scott Wright in the 94th and 97th minutes respectively gave the Light Blues a hugely memorable victory in Saturday’s final and provided ecstatic captain James Tavernier with the chance to walk up the steps at the national stadium and lift the famous old trophy in front of thousands of jubilant Gers fans.
The triumph came just days after Wednesday night’s penalty shootout defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final.
Sakala was introduced by Giovanni Van Bronckhorst at the start of the second half of extra time replacing Joe Aribo.
Next up for Sakala Jnr is national team duty as the 2023 AFCON qualifiers are set to kick start next month.
The 2012 AFCON winners will start their campaign away in Ivory Coast on June 3rd before hosting Comoros four days later.
