Papac sets his sights on Trophy double

Rangers left-back Sasa Papac is setting his sights on a trophy double as his side prepare to face Dundee United in the Scottish Cup.

The 31-year-old is expecting his side to build on their league form with a fifth-round cup clash next on the agenda at Ibrox on Sunday.

Ally McCoist’s men have dropped only two points since the turn of the year and have now moved within one point of Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic after a 4-0 victory against Hibernian.

However, following disappointment in Europe and the league cup Rangers now only have two trophies to focus on and Bosnian Papac recognises the significance of the coming weeks.

“The Dundee United game is a very important one for us because we can only win two trophies now this season,” he told the club’s official website.


“We have to be focused and keep our concentration because we all want to get through to the next round.

“You train all of your life to win titles and cups and if, at the end of your career, you have medals that is great.

“It is still early but this must be our target and it’s the same for every team in the competition. ”

Steven Davies replaced David Weir as captain following his departure from the club and Papac believes he has the right pedigree to lead Rangers to further success.


“So in the league we have to try and go on a run of victories and if we keep playing like we did against Hibs we can win the title,” he added.

“Davo knows what it takes to win trophies and he is a great player. He has been very consistent over the years and has not missed many games which also very important.

“So when Davie Weir left I felt it was naturally for Davo to take over. I am delighted about this and it was good for him to score a couple of goals against Hibs.

“It is not always easy for a midfield player to do this every week but I’m sure this has given him a lot of confidence and hopefully he will go on to score more this season.”
