SCOTT ARFIELD savoured a 'special' Scottish Cup success as Rangers ended their knock-out trophy drought with victory over Hearts at Hampden.

Goals from Ryan Jack and Scott Wright were enough to clinch an extra-time triumph and ensure Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side were not left empty-handed this term.

The Scottish Cup win came on the back of Rangers losing their Premiership crown at the first time of asking earlier this month and suffering Europa League heartache in Seville last week.

It was a first victory in the famous competition since 2009 and Arfield was well aware of the significance of the achievement for the Light Blues squad.

Arfield said: “It feels marvellous. I’m buzzing, delighted, happy, satisfied, everything that winning the cup should be.

“On the back of last Wednesday when we fell shot with one kick of the ball.

“This is special as it is a trophy that has evaded us for a number of years, so it feels amazing to lift it.

“You should have seen the dressing room at the end as everyone knows the importance of this Cup.

“Domestically since I have been here in the last few years we have fallen short and it always hurts going into the summer. We have the medal and trophy.

“In the league we fell short as well and we only have ourselves to blame for that. In January time it fell away from us.

“In the Europa League final it was down to one kick and any of us could have done that.

“To win the trophy feels brilliant, there’s no doubt about it.”
