Peterhead striker Rory McAllister today said he would love to net a cup final goal against Rangers – but only if it helps them to a famous victory.
The Blue Toon hotshot has so far scored in every round of the Challenge Cup this season, including bagging five in one game against Falkirk.
The former Aberdeen youngster’s eight goals in four games has helped fire the North-east side into their first ever national final, where they will meet the Glasgow giants in the showpiece of the competition at Hampden Park on Sunday.
But while the 28-year-old is focused on trying to add to his 31-goal haul this weekend, he is also determined the League One side are not going to Hampden just to make up the numbers.
“Unless we win it won’t mean as much,” McAllister said when asked what it would be like to complete a record of scoring in every round.
“If I score and we win, it would just be amazing for everybody at the club.
“For the directors and the gaffer and all the people who put in work behind the scenes I would be chuffed for everybody.
“If we can keep it tight at the back and nick something – you never know.
“It would be good to have scored in every round of the competition, but at the end of the day you want to win the cup.
“If I score and we lose 5-1 in the final it is not going to mean very much.
“But hopefully, they are off their game a wee bit and we are at our best then something can happen.
“If we don’t go wanting to win, then there is no point turning up.”
