Dessers delighted to have fired Rangers into Scottish Cup final



Super Eagles forward Cyriel Dessers has expressed excitement after he helped his club Rangers reach the Scottish Cup final with victory over Hearts.

Dessers grabbed a brace for his team as the Light Blues claimed a 2-0 win over Hearts at the Hampden Park.

They successfully set up a final with rivals Celtic, with whom they are also fighting for the Scottish League title.

“When you reach a final with Rangers you are always happy. It wasn’t easy but we got the job done,” Dessers told Rangers TV.

“We started well and we got the goal, which gives you an advantage as they have to come out and it gives you more space.

“There was a foul on James Tavernier but he didn’t stay down, he played it to Todd and he had a lovely assist.

“I had some work to do in the box, but I was glad to eliminate the defender and have a good finish.

“For the second, the keeper saved the first shot well but then I could get the rebound and I am glad it went in.

“Hearts were pushing at that time but the second goal killed the game.

“We know we have important weeks coming up and this was big for us.

“Making the final is huge, but this is only the beginning, we want to win the final now.”
