Man­ager won’t com­pare this team with Scot­tish Cup he­roes

Rutherglen Reformer - - Rutherglen Glencairn - Dou­glas Dickie

Wil­lie Har­vey re­fused to com­pare his cur­rent team with the side that reached the last four of the Scot­tish Cup back in 2013.

Glens also went close to pro­mo­tion that year, and Har­vey reck­ons both teams have their mer­its.

“They were dif­fer­ent teams,” he said.

“The Scot­tish Cup team were a very ex­pe­ri­enced, hard-work­ing team.

“This team is younger and maybe a bet­ter foot­balling team. They move the ball a bit quicker.

“Both teams had great qual­i­ties and I wouldn’t like to pick one as be­ing bet­ter than the other.”

While Glens’ league form was fan­tas­tic last sea­son, they did not do so well in the cups, with a quar­ter-fi­nal ap­pear­ance in the sec­tional league cup their best ef­fort.

“We went out early, “Wil­lie said. “But that was when we were still ad­just­ing as a team.

“In the sec­tional, Pol­lok beat us 3-1, but they scored in the last minute in a game we dom­i­nated for a long time.

“The cups prob­a­bly came to early for us. But they let us see the ar­eas we needed to im­prove.”
