The former Gers midfielder believes Rangers can get the win.

Rangers and Celtic face each other in the Scottish Cup semi-finals tomorrow in a massive Old Firm derby clash at Hampden Park.

The Ibrox side are hopeful of picking up a win over their fiercest rivals tomorrow to go with their recent promotion to the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic of course will go into the game as favourites, despite Rangers sitting pretty at the top of the Scottish second-tier.

The Bhoys are top of the first-tier making them the team to beat in Scotland right now.

But former Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins believes that his former club can pick up the win against their more fancied local rivals.

The former England international spent two years at Rangers between 1987 and 1989 and was a firm fan favourite during his time at Ibrox. He told Soccer AM this morning (16/04/16) that he feels Rangers will steal the win:

“It’s got to be a blue victory.

“I think Celtic have the upper hand because they have probably better players at this moment in time.

“But they are not playing some wonderful football at the moment. Rangers are on the crest of a wave and it will be a magnificent occasion.”

Rangers fans will no doubt be hoping that Wilkins prediction holds weight.

The club are desperate to pick up a win against their fierce rivals and gain the bragging rights in Glasgow, at least until next season.

Given their recent good form, Rangers should not be discounted.
