Can­ning: Grasp cup op­por­tu­nity

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

MARTIN Can­ning (above) has urged Hamil­ton to grasp their Wil­liam Hill Scot­tish Cup op­por­tu­nity against Rangers — and not miss the chance of life­time like he did.

It took penal­ties for Hamil­ton to see off Dun­fermline at the sec­ond at­tempt on Tues­day night as they set up a last-eight clash with Rangers.

And Can­ning urged his team to use his sob story for next month’s Ibrox tie.

He said: “I was at Gretna when they got the to cup fi­nal but I was cup-tied so missed out on the ac­tual game at Ham­p­den.

“I’ve told the play­ers to grasp this op­por­tu­nity be­cause the quar­ter-fi­nals was the fur­thest I got.

“When you play in Scot­land, the cups are one of the main things you chase be­cause the league is so hard to win un­less you’re play­ing for Celtic or Rangers.”
