Former Ibrox ace Kirk Broadfoot admits wanting Rangers to win Scottish Cup

Rangers take on Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final later this month.

Former Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot has told The Scottish Sun that he wants the Gers to beat Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final this month.

Rangers advanced into the final with a stunning win over Old Firm rivals Celtic at Hampden Park, as despite being a division below the Bhoys, Rangers took them all the way to penalties after a 2-2 draw, then beat Ronny Deila's men on spot kicks.

Their opponents in the final later this month will be Scottish Championship rivals Hibernian, meaning the final will be contested by two teams outside of the top flight.

Hibs made it to the final by beating Premiership outfit Dundee United on penalties, and after a long-running rivalry over the course of the league season, the two teams will do it again at Hampden Park for the Scottish Cup and a Europa League spot.

Rangers, having won the Scottish Championship title and the Petrofac Training Cup, are understandably the favourites to win the match, and former Ibrox defender Kirk Broadfoot has had his say on the game.

Rotherhan centre back Broadfoot, 31, made over 100 appearances for Rangers having signed from St. Mirren in 2012, winning three league titles during his time in Glasgow.

Now, Broadfoot has told The Scottish Sun that he thinks Hibernian will be too tired from their play-off campaign to win the Scottish Cup final, and wants Rangers to win the game and ultimately claim a domestic treble this season, whilst claiming that he is a Gers fan.

"I don’t think there is any possibility of Hibs being fresh should they come through the play-offs and then have to take on Rangers at Hampden," said Broadfoot. "I have sympathy for their plight as I know what they are going through although I’m a Rangers fan and want them to win the Scottish Cup," he added.
