Davie Weir confident Rangers won’t be ring-rusty in Scottish Cup final against Hibs



Rangers assistant manager Davie Weir insists the Ibrox club have done all they can to ensure the team is not ring-rusty ahead of tomorrow’s Scottish Cup final against Hibs.

Mark Warburton’s side will have had three weeks off by the time they lock horns with their Leith counterparts in the pivotal Hampden showdown.

In comparison, Hibs are not short of match practice and have played in four play-off ties but Weir is confident Rangers will not be off the pace.

He said: “We’ve tried to plan as much as we can in regard to getting the best preparation.

“The lads have had a little break at the start but have worked hard since.

“We had a good (bounce) game against Tottenham, which we were really pleased with in terms of the intensity and the way we played.

“Tottenham gave us a really good test so that was a really good experience.

“Hibs have obviously had good games in the meantime, good competitive games so I think we’re all waiting to see what the answer to that is. We’ve tried to prepare as well as we can.”

Speaking to Sky Sports, Weir, who won the Scottish Cup twice with Rangers as a player and once while at Hearts, added: “Being honest, if we don’t win it will be a massive disappointment.

“We’ll go into the summer on a low and think what might have been. We have to do all we can to avoid that feeling.”
