JAYNE SOMERVILLE says she'll be in dreamland if she lifts the Unite Scottish Women's Cup as captain of Rangers this weekend.
The 22-year-old already has two winners' medals to her name from her time with Sunday's opponents Glasgow City.
But she insists a third - with her beloved Rangers - would top the lot.
Somerville, who joined the newly-formed Rangers Ladies last summer, said: "It's a privilege for me to pull on a Rangers jersey and if I can get my hands on the cup on Sunday it will be a dream come true.
"My whole family are season ticket holders at Rangers and I don't think my dad would have forgiven me if I hadn't signed for them when the opportunity arose.
"I'm glad I did because this season has surpassed all expectations.
"Our aim was to win promotion to the Premier League and we managed to do that as First Division champions.
"To reach the final and knock out Premier opposition including Raith Rovers and Spartans along the way is just beyond our wildest dreams."
Scotland international Somerville knows the odds are stacked against her side this weekend though.
Opponents City are in pole position to retain their SWPL crown and their season has taken them to the dizzy heights of the last 16 in the UEFA Women's Champions League.
The Rangers captain has fond memories of her time with her side's rivals. But she admits there will be no room for sentiment on Sunday.
She said: "I enjoyed four great years at City and reached the Scottish Cup final three times - beating Queen's Park and Aberdeen but losing the third to Hibs.
"One of my best friends is their midfielder Suzanne Lappin and I know she will be rubbing it in if they beat us.
"It's my job to make sure that doesn't happen.
"We are a very young side and are up against a very experienced City team who have internationals all over the place and have even played in Europe this season.
"We will definitely start as underdogs but, as we have proved already this season, anything can happen in a one-off game."
