The Scottish Cup is in a league of its own now it has been recognised as the oldest national football trophy in the world.

Libson Lion Bobby Lennox and Falkirk manager Steven Pressley announced a double world record for the Scottish Football Association Challenge Cup, which has been crowned the oldest trophy in Association football and the oldest national football trophy in the world.

Bobby lifted the trophy eight times with Celtic and Steven is the only player to have won the cup with three clubs – Rangers, Hearts and Celtic.

The original trophy lives at the Scottish Football Museum at Hampden Park for most of the year but is carefully brought out on Cup Final day and presented to the winning team.

It has received two certificates from the Guinness Book of World Records after extensive research by both them and museum curator Richard McBrearty.

The exciting news for Scottish football comes as the museum celebrates its 10th anniversary at Hampden.

To mark the occasion visitors can see the best collection of football memorabilia in the country for just 5p, the cost of a ticket to see the first Scotland versus England match in 1872.

On Saturday and Sunday all museum visitors will be given a replica of the original match ticket used in 1872.

Mr McBrearty said: "We wanted to do something to mark our 10th year at the National Stadium and what better way than to reduce admission to 5p per person.

"And for their 5p, every visitor receives a copy of the ticket for the first Scotland v England game in 1872.

"For the record, Scotland hammered England in a no scoring draw in that match!"

Everyone is welcome for a fun weekend and there will be a competition in the stadium warm up area where the hardest hitters in each age category will win a prize.

Richard said: "The hot-shot machine at the museum is popular with every age.

"Who can resist slamming the ball into a net before the speed appears on a screen?"
