Dessers Relishes Rangers’ Scottish Cup Win Over Hearts

Cyriel Dessers was delighted to be the hero for Rangers in their Scottish Cup semi-final victory over Hearts.

Dessers grabbed a brace as the Light Blues claimed a 2-0 win over Hearts at the Hampden Park.

The Nigeria international also praised playmaker Todd Cantwell for setting him up for the two goals.

“When you reach a final with Rangers you are always happy. It wasn’t easy but we got the job done,” Dessers told Rangers TV.

“We started well and we got the goal, which gives you an advantage as they have to come out and it gives you more space.

“There was a foul on James Tavernier but he didn’t stay down, he played it to Todd and he had a lovely assist.

“I had some work to do in the box, but I was glad to eliminate the defender and have a good finish.

“For the second, the keeper saved the first shot well but then I could get the rebound and I am glad it went in.

“Hearts were pushing at that time but the second goal killed the game.

“We know we have important weeks coming up and this was big for us.

“Making the final is huge, but this is only the beginning, we want to win the final now.”
