Police have made two further arrests following the pitch invasion at the Scottish Cup Final on Saturday 21 May.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on Sunday 3 July and a 27-year-old was arrested on Monday 4 July.

This comes after police released images of 13 men as part of the investigation into the violence and disorder which followed the match last month.

Fans invaded the pitch at Hampden after Hibernian beat Rangers 3-2 to win their first Scottish Cup Final in 114 years.

Thousands of Hibs fans jumped the barriers at the final whistle.

A number of Rangers fans also came on to the pitch.

The pitch invasion delayed the presentation of the trophy and there was no lap of honour for Hibs players.

Rangers players were not able to pick up their cup final medals.
