The one which adorns this evening's Ramsdens Cup quarter-final tie between Queen of the South and Rangers is a rather flashy example, since the Dumfries club knocked their haughty opponents out of this competition at the same stage last season. That match was decided on penalties at Ibrox.
Queens were spotted practising from 12 yards during a training session at Clyde's Broadwood Stadium yesterday, allowing the match at Palmerston to seem redolent of their last meeting with Rangers. Jim McIntyre was not in charge that night, though, and the Queens manager has been sure that his players have remained grounded during training, rather than straying off towards fancy.
It is a similarly stern approach which McIntyre will expect to see inside Palmerston tonight. "I have not gone back and watched that game, or anything like that, as last year was last year," said the Queens manager, whose side are without both Mark Durnan and Paul Burns. "Rangers are a new team after recruiting really well over the summer and we have had them watched and know that they are a pretty free-flowing side that can score a lot of goals."
A galling defeat by Forfar Athletic in the Scottish League Cup aside, the Ibrox side have pulverised opposing teams for much of the campaign. McIntyre maintained his side are no soft touch, though. "Whenever you play Rangers or Celtic it is a massive game," he said. "The players here have shown that they have the bottle to handle big games.
"We played the holders of the League Cup, St Mirren, at Palmerston last month and were behind in extra-time but came back to win. We proved when we won that game that we have a lot of resilience in our ranks and we will need that strength again."
The form of Stephen McKenna has been an emblem of that: the midfielder having excelled in a more attacking role for the Dumfries side this season. Having levelled the scores against St Mirren, he is not short of confidence ahead of the visit of Rangers either.
"They're in the division below us but they're still the team to beat," said McKenna. "We'll be going into it in a confident mood. It's always great to play in front of big crowds and that will be the case against Rangersthey can do, we have the players to cause them problems."
