Cheers. Am I right in thinking the pic on this page is of the Scottish Cup?

Absolutely right, Lisbon. The Scottish Cup, first played for in 1873-74, is the oldest football trophy in the world. It's on permanent display at the Scottish Football Museum at Hampden Park.

And surprisingly 'Rangers' name is not on the Cup.

It is on the plinth. It just has the first 20 winners on it.

And a bit of shameless self promotion I got to hold it on a very special day ...

Pretty certain he was Hearts regular coach driver. Didn't look happy at all perhaps he supported Hibs? ....
