Rangers' Potter on living for cup finals & wanting a packed stadium

Jo Potter has been speaking to the media ahead of Rangers' SWPL Cup final against Partick Thistle on Sunday.

Here are the key points from the Rangers manager's press conference:

  • Potter says it's good to switch from league action to the cup competitions once in a while - "it keeps you fresh".

  • She knows the onus is on Rangers to go out and win, but they are giving Thistle their full respect ahead of Sunday.

  • Insists they aren't dwelling on defeat to Celtic last time out, and says her players don't need any extra motivation for a cup final.

  • The expectation to win trophies is part of playing for Rangers, but believes her players make it easier for themselves with the standards they set week-in, week-out.

  • Says she "lives for" these moments and is excited for the chance to lift her first trophy as a manager.

  • Potter is hopeful the international break will encourage more fans to go to Tynecastle to support, and says the SWPL "deserves" a packed stadium for the showpiece event.
