Ally McCoist picks Celtic to beat the Rangers in the League Cup Final

Ally McCoist has surprisingly picked Celtic to win the League Cup on Sunday.

Celtic have completely dominated Scottish football in recent years. They have won the league title for eight straight seasons and the Scottish Treble Treble. And it is this relentless pursuit for titles the will see them walk out of Hampden Park with the League Cup. At least that is the belief of Rangers legend, Ally McCoist.

Speaking with Sky Sports about the League Cup final and who believes will win on Sunday, McCoist said:

“You would probably think that Celtic maybe have a slight edge just due to the fact that they have won so many trophies in a row recently.

“They will probably, in my eyes, start slight favourites as they probably have more matchwinners in their squad than (the) Rangers.”

To be honest, both teams have been in great form this season. While Celtic have 40 points from 15 league games and currently sit at the top of the Premiership table, the Rangers sit on second position at 38 points. And it has been months since both teams lost in domestic competition. Thus whichever team wins on Sunday will have to earn it.

But it is probably the Rangers who will be the more desperate of the two sides. After losing the Scottish Cup final to Hibernian in 2016, they will be looking to bring an end to their long wait for a major trophy on Sunday. Celtic on the other hand have won a historical number of trophies in this decade and will not be too eager to end it with a loss in a Cup final against their bitter rivals.
