Scottish Cup

Rangers ace feels sharp for Hibernian clash

Martyn Waghorn reveals he is feeling "sharp" as Rangers prepare for a Scottish Cup final.

Quoted by Inside Futbol, fit-again Rangers hitman Martyn Waghorn has revealed that he feels "sharp" ahead of meeting Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final this Saturday.

Hampden Park plays host on the weekend as the Gers look to complete the treble this season, having already coasted to Scottish Championship and Petrofac Cup success in recent weeks.

It remains to be seen whether Rangers boss Mark Warburton will include the 26-year-old marksman from the start, following a knee injury which kept him out of competitive action from February until April.

Should he be involved, it would be a massive boost for Rangers given that he is their top goalscorer, having netted 28 times across all competitions in just 35 appearances.

And the former Wigan Athletic man, who joined Rangers last summer, is optimistic that he'll face Hibs, but admits that the decision ultimately lies with Warburton.

"I've played the last few games and feel sharp," the Rangers goal machine told a press conference, quoted by Inside Futbol. "Obviously it's up to the manager, but I'm desperate to play."

If he plays, Waghorn will fancy his chances of hitting the 30-goal barrier following what has been a goal-laden first season with the Ibrox club.
