McCall does not believe Rangers have an advantage over Hibernian.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Stuart McCall question Rangers’ advantage in the play-offs, having played two games whilst Hibs have had 18 days off.

He said: “People ask me what I would rather have done. Well, 18 days off until your last game is a bit long - but I'm sure Hibs are recharged and refreshed. The carrot is too big to be tired mentally or physically. We won't have any tiredness in the ranks. I don't honestly know where the advantage lies. Not playing for 18 days or having two games.”

Rangers have had two games already to progress to their semi-final with Hibs, whilst the team who finished in second place in the Championship will have had an 18-day break by the time of the tie.

The Light Blues deafened Queen of the South by a 3-2 aggregate scoreline over two legs, but it appeared as if the squad were starting to show fatigue late in the second-leg on Sunday.

Hibs have enjoyed an extended break, and will undoubtedly be the much fitter team when taking to the field.

However, they have also had an extended break which inevitably loses some of the momentum that they were enjoying prior to the start of the post-season.

Rangers will enter the game on the back of a vital victory, and will be flying high as they face Hibs, who will likely look very off the pace.

It is hard to suggest who has the advantage in the game, although the fitness boost that Hibs possess should aid them in the tie, but Rangers may just have enough momentum about them to brush their opponents aside with ease - and come one step closer to a return to the top flight.
