'Tell the players its Barca' - Rangers fans react to Scottish Cup quarter-final draw
Rangers have been drawn at home against Championship side Falkirk in the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup after beating Ayr 6-1 – and Gers fans are delighted with the draw.
The Gers will welcome Paul Hartley’s side to Ibrox on the first weekend of March as they look to lift their first piece of major silverware since 2011 and will be happy at getting pulled out the hat with a much weaker side.
Ibrox assistant manager was briefly number two at the Falkirk Stadium before joining the Light Blues in January.
Falkirk are one of two Championship sides still in the competition – Morton being the other – and will give Murty’s side the best possible opportunity to reach the next round.
Fans were happy to get a home tie against the Bairns in the quarter-finals – with one fan saying the Gers will “only win by 4.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Good draw home to Falkirk ????
