With the semi-finals and final to take place at Hampden Park, Suzanne Winters – who amassed over 100 Scotland caps – believes the chance to run out at the National Stadium will be a huge motivation for the teams competing in the Scottish Cup this year.

Winters told scottishfa.co.uk: “It’s fantastic. I was really privileged to play at Hampden because I played for Scotland so I think it’s great now that not only international players get the opportunity to play here but teams in this competition too so that’s definitely an added incentive for the players.

“My first Scottish Cup final was against Aberdeen and that was an amazing day. Being from the Highlands, with the game at McDiarmid Park, all my family were there and to score a hat-trick just topped it off.

“It will be an amazing experience for Rossvale, playing against the quality that Rangers have got. That will be memorable for them playing against international players and I’m sure they’ll be looking forward to it.”
