Rangers riding on the crest of a wave after promotion to Scottish Premiership and winning Challenge Cup
It’s been a long road back for Glasgow Rangers who were demoted to the Scottish Third Division four seasons ago, with Mark Warburton recently steering them back to the top flight.
The Gers are enjoying a historic season which saw them win the Challenge Cup final on Sunday and they now clash with Celtic back at Hampden Park in the Scottish FA Cup.
Bet365 make Rangers the distinct outsiders at 15/4 to win this Old Firm clash although there will be no pressure on a side who have racked up 79 points from 32 games played in the league this term.
“I’m delighted for the supporters who have had some tough, welldocumented times of late,” the Gers boss said.
“The level of support we had today was magnificent.
“The players have worked hard and they’ve achieved their goal so I’m delighted for them.
“It was important to get the job done. It’s been a good day and another trophy.
“We had to come to terms with the occasion as well as the pitch,” he added.
“It took us some time to settle but the second goal from James Tavernier was magnificent.
“We controlled possession in the second half and created chance after chance. The goals were always going to come.”
Celtic are a best price 8/11 to win the match at Hampden Park, with the Bhoys enjoying 76 points from 33 games played this term in the SPL.
