NICKY LAW insists there is no reason for Rangers to fear an Old Firm reunion with Celtic in the latter stages of the William Hill Scottish Cup should they take another Ladbrokes Premiership scalp in Dundee.

Law and his team-mates play host to the Dens Park side in the last eight on Saturday with the English midfielder aware of the strong possibility their Glasgow rivals will be waiting for them at the semi-final stage.

Celtic brushed the Ibrox club aside in the last four of the League Cup last season with a straightforward 2-0 win at Hampden Park, but Law believes it would be completely different this time around.

“Going into that game last season, we were managerless and there were so many other things going on at the time,” he said. “It was difficult and we were poor on the day.

“This time, we would put up a better display and push them a lot more than we did the last time.

“I have played in two semi-finals and the Ramsdens final and I have not been able to win any of them. We have the final of the Petrofac Training Cup to look forward to and, if we were able to get to the later stages of the Scottish Cup, that would be fantastic.”

Law’s fellow midfielder Jason Holt insists Mark Warburton’s side is brimming with self-belief ahead of the Dundee clash and confident of breaking through the 100-goal barrier for the season.

The Ibrox club are eager to take another scalp from the Ladbrokes Premiership after beating Kilmarnock in the previous round and Holt wants goals after being part of the 2-0 league win over Raith Rovers that took their overall tally for the campaign to 99.

“We’ll go into it confident,” he said. “In recent weeks, we’ve managed to do the job of sending the fans home happy and we’ll be looking to do the same on Saturday.

“When the gaffer came in, he planted the seeds for the style and formation he wanted to play and I think it suits all the players in the team. I’ve really enjoyed being part of the free-flowing football.”

Law has revealed he is also eager to win a new contract at Rangers, admitting that it is not easy to keep playing when he is unaware of whether he will be staying at Ibrox beyond the summer.

“We obviously want our futures sorted as soon as possible as we have families to look after, but it is the manager’s decision,” said Law in an interview with Rangers TV. “It is a difficult time not just for myself, but for five or six of us at the moment.

“I would love to stay.”
