CAPTAIN Danny Finlayson can’t wait to lead out his Rangers side at the National Stadium tomorrow as Rangers seek Youth Cup glory for the first time in five years.
The Light Blues face Celtic at 7.05pm in a closed-door match, and as well as having a five point gap over the other half of the Old Firm in the under-18 league, Gers also carry the knowledge of having beaten them in the Glasgow Cup while at under-17 level last season.
Speaking to RangersTV, Finlayson said: “We are really looking forward to the game and it’s a great experience to play in a cup final. A lot of the boys did it last year and we got the win.
“It’s what you want to do at a club like Rangers – you want to play in cup finals and obviously win them.
“Every young boy wants to run out at Hampden and show what you can do. Going there will be a new experience and it is something we are looking forward to.
“There is always a pressure playing for Rangers, but in a game like this as well, there is even more pressure. All the boys in the changing room have it in them and are confident enough we will go and do the job.
“This is the business end of the season and it’s where you can prove you’re a good player or not. Like I said, the boys in the dressing room have enough in them and are confident enough we are ready to go and prove we are the best team.”
That 3-0 defeat of Celtic a year ago at Firhill was a massive moment for the group, with Finlayson continuing: “Of course it gives us a lot of confidence. It was a great experience for us and it was the first time we have really won anything in a long time.
“We are now getting used to winning games and winning trophies, and it’s what you need to do at a club like this. There’s no better feeling.”
