Rangers captain Lee Wallace says it would the mean the world to him to lift the Scottish Cup after four years of being in the wilderness.

The club were forced to start again in the bottom tier of Scottish football in 2012 after financial meltdown at Ibrox. They’ve come a long way since then under Mark Warburton this season with the opportunity of a treble at stake.

Having won the Petrofac Training Cup and the Scottish Championship, the Light Blues can secure a third piece of silverware this season if they beat Hibernian at Hampden on Saturday.

And Wallace is hoping to turn what’s been a good season into a great one with a victory in the Hampden showdown.

“It would mean the world to me to do that with this group of boys that we’ve got,” he said.

“I’m aware of the journey that there has only been maybe two or three that have done it since that first game at Peterhead.

“To be able to lift the trophy I’ll be over the moon for everyone involved and that is not just the players, it’s the staff who are thoroughly deserving and the fans who have probably suffered the most in that period of time.

It would be nice, it would be fitting and it would mark what we’ve called a good season into a great one.

First and foremost though we’re aware of Hibs threat we are aware of individuals who deserve our respect and we are well aware of that based on the games we’ve played. But equally we know what we need to do try to win the game.
