As the football season comes to an end, we thought it would be a good time to reflect on some of the matches and share some of our incredible photos that capture the essence of the sport. As a proud sponsor of the Scottish Cup this season, we were delighted to fly the KDM flag and provide the opportunity for our employees, clients and friends to share the magic of the beautiful game.
The semi-final was a clash of the old firms – Heart of Midlothian v Hibernian and Celtic v Rangers and they didn’t disappoint, well depending on which side you supported.
Heart of Midlothian v Hibernian
It’s been 10 years since Heart of Midlothian won the Scottish Cup and 8 years for Hibernian, so both teams had a lot to play for. Hearts opened the scoring 16 minutes into the game then again in the 21st minute. Hibernian then retaliated with a goal in the 22nd minute. Joe Newell got sent off for Hibernian in the 2nd half and the score stayed the same until the 90th minute, sending Hearts into the final.
Celtic v Rangers
Hearts had already secured their place in the final so it was between the Glasgow old firm rivalry – the Hoops and the Teddy Bears to see who would be playing in the Scottish Cup final. It’s been 13 years since Rangers won the cup and 2 years for Celtic. Going into extra time, it was to be “the boys in blue” day with a 2-1 win due to an own goal by Carl Starfelt.
Q&A with Colin Hendry and Cameron Devlin
On Tuesday 17th May KDM hosted the Rangers and Scotland legend Colin Hendry and a young superstar in the making, Cameron Devlin of Hearts. Colin Hendry has 51 caps for Scotland and provided guests with a unique insight into his career at the Q&A whilst also sharing stories from his career at Rangers and Scotland. Cameron Devlin, originally from Sydney, has signed a 3-year contract with Hearts until August 2024 was also a pleasure to chat with him about his experiences in the SPL and Scottish Cup this season.
The SFA brought along the Scottish Cup and allowed us to hear their thoughts about the final, Colin’s stories about the good old days were very entertaining and gave some of our employees a chance to ask them some questions.

The game went into extra time where Rangers scored twice in the first half. The score remained 2-0 for Rangers, hailing them victorious against Hearts.
