Rangers have been rampant in the run-up to the final. In the third round, Rangers trounced East Kilbride 8-2.
The Rangers youth side then dumped Greenock Morton 2-0 in the fourth round back in December. They then hammered Cove Rangers 3-0 in the 5th, before dumping last year’s finalists Aberdeen 3-1 in the semi.
The match will see these two old rivals clash in the 35
th Scottish FA Youth Cup Final. The trophy originally started in 1983-84 and is open to all senior clubs. The age limit was originally set at U19 but it is now played at U18 level.
It’s been a superb year for the Rangers Academy with victory in the ALKASS Cup a particular highlight. Fans tuned into that final and will surely do the same for this.
