Preview | Rangers (A)
25th April 2021
It's a beautiful day to go and make some history!
Today Saints travel to Ibrox to take on Rangers in the Quarter Finals of the Scottish Cup.
Saints will be looking to do what no team has done at Ibrox yet this season and come away with a win.
Winning at Ibrox may have seen a daunting task earlier in the season, but just recently, Rangers travelled through to McDiarmid Park on Wednesday night and had to put up a fight just to come away with a point.
Right from the off, Saints flew out the traps, pressing high, putting every player under pressure. In the first 15 minutes, the Saints had carved out several chances and even had the ball in the back of the Rangers net, but Melamed was deemed to be offside.
Scott Wright opened the scoring early in the second half to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. However, this did not dampen Saints' attitude, they fought right up until the end and got their reward. In the 94th minute, a penalty was awarded and up stepped Liam Craig, who calmly tucked it away to earn a valuable point.
Saints looked fearless on Wednesday night. They took the game to Rangers, got in their faces and made it difficult for them. They had this air of confidence about them, which is exactly what everyone wants to see today.
St Johnstone Football Club has been underestimated since 1884. Today let's go and prove to everyone what this Club is all about.
C'mon you, Saints!
