Match preview

The last two Scottish Cup winners go head-to-head in Perth.

These two clubs met at McDiarmid Park just 76 days ago, with goals from James Brown and Nicky Clark securing a famous win for St Johnstone.

This, pretty much, signalled the end of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s time in charge, so will all involved expirence a sense of déjà vu?

Rangers lifted this trophy for the first in 13 years last May, beating Hearts 2-0 in extra time, just three days after that heartbreaking defeat in the Europa League Final.

A lot has changed since then, with Mick Beale returning to replace van Bronckhorst during the World Cup break.

Under Beale, the Light Blues have won six of seven Premiership games, only dropping points in a draw with Celtic.

This includes Wednesday night’s hard-fought 3-2 victory at Kilmarnock, in which Alfredo Morelos bagged a brace.

Last Sunday, the Gers also came from behind in the League Cup semi-finals against Aberdeen, with goals from Ryan Jack and Kemar Roofe booking their place in the final.

Here, the 34-times winners of this competition will expect another tough challenge.

St Johnstone meanwhile secured an historic cup double in 2021, knocking out Rangers in the quarter-finals of this competition that season.

Right now, Callum Davidson’s team are in horrendous form, sat eighth in the Premiership having lost five on the spin, most-recently going down 4-2 against Livingston.

Off the field, the Saints board made the controversial decision to give Rangers three stands for this tie, whilst charging home fans in the main stand £30 per ticket.

This has led to most St Johnstone supporters boycotting the game, with only around 200 Saints set to be in attendance.

All of this suggests Rangers should cruise through to round five at McDiarmid Park.
