The 1959 Scottish League Cup Final was played on 24 October 1959 at Hampden Park in Glasgow and it was the final of the 14th Scottish League Cup competition. The final was contested by Hearts, who had won the previous year's final, and Third Lanark. Third Lanark had led 1–0 at half time thanks to an early goal by Joe McInnes, but Hearts turned things around and won 2–1 to retain the cup thanks to second half goals by Johnny Hamilton and Alex Young. Hearts would later go on to complete a League and League Cup double – the only non Old Firm side to achieve such a double.
