HE WON the Scottish Cup in spectacular style in a game dubbed the “Laudrup Final” and now Brian Laudrup thinks Rangers are ready to win the trophy again.
It has been seven years since Gers last lifteLd the cup and the nine-in-a-row star thinks it would be great for Scottish football to see blue ribbons tied to the trophy again.
Gers haven’t won a major honour since the League Cup in 2011 and Laudrup says it’s not just Rangers fans that should be desperate to see the club triumphant again.
The 46-year-old said: “You never know, I think the hunger for success must be incredible at Ibrox at the moment; we have been away from the bigger trophies for years and are getting closer all the time.
“Hopefully for Scottish football we will get to see a great Rangers side lift another trophy soon.”
“To play in any cup is something special but especially in Britain I feel there is a tradition around the cups; the hype, the atmosphere and small clubs getting the chance to try and beat these big opponents.
“You see a lot of upsets and every game is tough but it was for us as well and then to play in a final and win, you can’t get better than that.”
Laudrup is back living in Denmark and working as a TV pundit so confesses to being slightly detached from the game in Scotland.
With Gers not playing in the top flight the Ibrox legend struggles to see their matches – he would love to see his former club back in the big time and back on the European map.
The winger said: “A lot of people back home ask me continuously “What about Rangers?” And “What is happening at Rangers?” because they haven’t seen them for years.
“It’s very important for Scottish football to not only have Celtic to represent them internationally but also to get Rangers back into Europe, along with the likes of Aberdeen.”
“It will be very important because to attract new players and create a great atmosphere around the Premiership Rangers are vital.
“I hope to see Rangers play this season, I will try and come over before the end of the season and watch one of the games at Ibrox – that would be fantastic.”
