Rangers B discover Cup final date as they set sights on silverware

Rangers B enjoyed a strong maiden campaign in the Lowland League this season and David McCallum’s side can add some silverware next week after the date was confirmed for the City of Glasgow Cup final.

The young Gers face Queen’s Park with the final taking place on Monday 9 May at Broadwood Stadium in Cumbernauld.

Rangers booked their place in the final with a 5-4 win over Celtic having drawn 2-2 after extra time with their bitter rivals.

The Light Blues also recorded an unbeaten record in the group stage, winning three and drawing the other, as the Colts impressed in the competition.

After finishing second in the Lowland League, lifting the City of Glasgow Cup would be a perfect end to the season for the Colts.

The likes of Leon King, Alex Lowry and Charlie McCann may all be involved for the young Gers at Broadwood against the Spiders on Monday night.

City of Glasgow Cup final rarity for Rangers

Rangers have won the trophy 44 times in its various guises over the years but last get their hands on it back in 2018 after a 3-0 win over Celtic in the final.

This year’s final is something of a rarity in the City of Glasgow Cup with it being the first non-Old Firm final since Celtic beat Partick Thistle 5-0 in the 1996/97 final.

Rangers’ last appearance in a non-Old Firm final was a further decade back with the Light Blues and Queen’s Park meeting in the 1984/85 competition – the Gers running out 5-0 winners on that occasion.

Tickets are available HERE for just £7 for adults and £3 for concessions and juveniles.
