For whatever reasons - the million or so green and white candles lit ior Catholic saints In Glasgow churches, or simply poor ilnlshlng - Rangers iailed to make the ilnal oi the European Cup. Which, In a way, Is bad news ior their Scottish Cup Final opponents Aberdeen.

Europe was always Bangers’ main priority this season, at least since they wrapped up their iiith consecutive League title lust beiore Christmas. They cruised to the Scottish Cup Final on auto-pilot and now ilnd themselves tree to think about It as the third leg oi a treble. Heroic iailure In Europe might prove just the extra Incentive Rangers need to increase their eiiorts to retain the domestic trophy they won last season.

Three obstacles stand In their way. Ally McCoIst’s iractured limb means the champions will be without the man most likely to beneiit irom Mark Hately’s ability to unsettle deienders. Hulstra and McSwegan are abler deputies than most sides could call upon, but McCoist will be missed.

Secondly, the venue, Parkhead, will lessen the big-match atmosphere. Rangers are already whlngelng about their ticket allocation (21,000 out oi the 51,000 capacity) and It certainlv

isn’t the second home Hampden has been ior Rangers ior the last iew

years. And then there’s Aberdeen. Willie

Miller’s side will be desperate to prove they’re more than a bunch oi distant also-rans. While not coming anywhere near matching Walter Smith’s team ior strength and depth, in Scott Booth and Eoin Jess, Aberdeen have two proven match- winners who can trouble the Rangers deience. Trebles are notoriously dliilcult things to achieve even in the tiny pond that Scottish Premier league iootball has become. Hence the ridiculously courageous prediction: Aberdeen 2 Rangers 1.
