Aberdeen reached the Scottish Cup final for the first time in 17 years with victory over holders Hibernian. Adam Rooney pounced on a defensive mix-up to put the Dons ahead 12 seconds after kick-off, and Ryan Christie's free-kick doubled their lead. Substitute Grant Holt headed Hibs back into the game before half-time and the striker set up Dylan McGeouch to level. But Jonny Hayes' shot deflected off Darren McGregor and beat Ofir Marciano for Aberdeen's winner. Manager Derek McInnes, who won the League Cup with the Dons in 2014, now has a cup final against either Celtic or Rangers on 27 May to prepare for, with the Glasgow sides meeting on Sunday.
