With just three hours to go till Rangers face off v Hibs in a Scottish Cup Final grudge match of epic proportions, a sense of anticipation is clearly building in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Hibs’ epic collapse in failure to achieve promotion after claiming they would win the league outright has been stuff of mockery and legend, while Rangers really strolled the division and never gave up top spot once they got it.
Neil McCann believes the pressure is all on Hibs, with the 1902 record staring them in the face, and it is always fun to see the Rangers’ stalwart winding up the opposition – the more he says the more every Rangers-hater dislikes him. Something he will be very used to.
Personally I would argue the pressure is evenly spread – Hibs have to salvage their season somehow, while Rangers have a Europa League slot at stake, plus the kudos of winning the national cup, along with possibly the coveted signature of Joey Barton.
It is set to be one heck of a final either way. Let the game begin.
