Stranraer beating Rangers in Friday’s Scottish Cup clash at Ibrox would be “up there” with Inverness Caley Thistle’s famous 2000 triumph against Celtic at Parkhead, according to Blues midfielder Jamie Hamill.
The League One strugglers travel to Ibrox this week as the Gers return to domestic action and the midfielder joked the Stair Park side will earn double their win bonus is they can get a draw and bring Rangers back to Stair Park.
The veteran midfielder admits his side are toiling in the League but insists they are looking forward to heading for Ibrox and Friday’s televised game.
“Friday is a game we are looking forward to. We are struggling in the league but we are looking forward to going under the lights at Ibrox,” Hamill told the Daily Record.
“We will go there with a game plan and hopefully get a good result.
“Our draw bonus will probably be bigger than our win bonus. I had a laugh with the chairman about that. He said our draw bonus will be double our win bonus.
“I think if we get a result there it would be up there with the time Inverness Caley Thistle went to Parkhead and knocked Celtic out of the Scottish Cup in 2000.”
Hamill has won on his two previous visits to Ibrox – with Kilmarnock and Hearts respectively – but faces a massive task to come away with anything on Friday.
The Light Blues have never lost at home in the Scottish Cup to a club from a lower division and they’ll be expected to maintain that incredible record.
Steven Gerrard’s side might see a few fringe players given a chance to impress but they should still have more than enough to see off Stranraer.
