Peralta facing club v country dilemma if we reach Scottish Cup Final

PERALTA is part of the Hondurus squad looking forward to the World Cup finals this summer but the South Americans' build-up clashes with the date of this season's cup final.


ARNOLD Peralta will face a club v country dilemma if Rangers reach the Scottish Cup Final.


Ally McCoist’s men will earn a semi-final on home turf if they see off Albion Rovers in the last eight at Ibrox next month.


But if they reach the showpiece at Parkhead on May 17 they will have to plead with Honduras to allow Peralta to join their World Cup build-up later.


The Hondurans have just announced they will be preparing for the finals at a month-long training camp in Miami.


That starts on May 12 so Peralta would miss the cup final if the Honduran FA aren’t flexible.


McCoist will have to hope Peralta’s national boss Luis Fernando Suarez allows the midfielder to delay his departure by a week.


Honduras face France, Switzerland and Ecuador in the World Cup and Peralta is a cert for their squad.

I would be more worried if he was selected to play for us in the final, as stuck out on the wing doesnt seem to be suiting him much so far. Of course it could be that he just needs a year to settle in to a very different culture and lifestyle than he will have been used to, and it may be next season before we see what he is capable of.

If he's going to play it has to be in CMF and that doesn't seem likely at the moment; so it doesn't look like he'll have much of a dilemma come Cup Final day (assuming we get there); unless we get injuries best he can hope for is a place on the bench.


I would think that his bigger problem will be that come the World Cup, he won't have played competitively for more than 6 months unless Ally starts rotating as soon as the League's won.
