Scottish Cup Final Scottish Cup Finals 2016 preview

It is the 131st Scottish Cup final, but never before have the two sides competing for the world's oldest national trophy both been outside the nation's top flight.

In all that time, only one English manager has led his side to glory - Reg Smith with Falkirk back in 1957 - and no team other than East Fife in 1938 have lifted the trophy while playing outside the top division.

Those statistics will change as Scottish Championship winners Rangers face Hibernian, who finished third behind them this season, at a sell-out Hampden Park.

Will it be joy for Alan Stubbs in his 100th game in charge of Hibs? Or will Mark Warburton further justify his PFA Scotland manager of the year award by winning his third piece of silverware since switching from Brentford to Ibrox?

The motivation for their two sides could not be more contrasting.

For Rangers, it is the completion of a unique treble, having won the second tier title and Petrofac Training Cup.

For Hibs, it is the avoidance of a triple dose of misery after defeat by Ross County in the League Cup final and the loss to Falkirk in last week's Premiership play-off semi-final, which ended their own hopes of promotion for a second consecutive season.

That's even before you consider the Edinburgh club's 114 years of hurt.

Words from Rangers captain Lee Wallace

"We'll be up against a team hungry to rectify the fact they won't be getting promoted to the top flight. I think it will be easy for them to get themselves up for Saturday as they are playing us. We're the champions and it's a cup final, so there will be 11 highly motivated Hibs players out there. They will definitely be hurting. We're also aware of how long it's been since they won this competition."

The weight of history would appear to favour the Glasgow side, who have only lost 69 of their 348 meetings with Hibs.

However, both the Scottish Cup encounters - and the most recent games - are much more even.

They have faced one another 32 times in the competition, with Rangers coming out on top 14 times and Hibs winning 10.

While Rangers have won three of their five meetings this season and finished 11 points ahead of Stubbs' side in the league table, Hibs have beaten the Ibrox side twice and a 3-2 win at Easter Road last month is freshest in the memories of the two sides.

The final might not only be decided by how Hibs react to their recent lows and Rangers respond to their season of highs but by their contrasting preparations.

Words from Hibernian captain David Gray

"I try not to visualise it too much. It is easy to get carried away with these sort of things. I keep pinching myself to say that I need to prepare as if it is another game of football. Training has been really good all week and everyone is hungry and determined to make it a successful end to the season. We tried to win everything this season and we had the chance to do it, but it is disappointing that we have not managed to do that."
