JON Daly today admitted he is keen to help Rangers go on a run in the William Hill
Scottish Cup this season - to boost their bank balance.
Daly won the national knockout cup competition back in 2010 when he helped former club Dundee United beat Ross County 3-0 in the Hampden final.
And the 31-year-old striker would love to enjoy that sort of success with the Ibrox club during the 2013/14 campaign.
The Irishman believes it would be a great way to repay Light Blues supporters for their backing in the last couple of seasons.
And he also thinks that it would help the SPFL League One leaders, who are currently operating at a monthly loss, financially as well.
Daly and his team-mates
rejected the offer of a 15% pay cut for a year-and-a-half made by chief executive Graham Wallace last month.
But there are set to be cutbacks at the Glasgow giants after Wallace has completed his 120-days restructuring project.
And overcoming Dunfermline in the fifth round at Ibrox on Friday night and
going all the way to the final at Parkhead in May would go a long to boosting the coffers at the club.
Daly said: "It would be fantastic for the club from a financial point of view and also brilliant for the fans.
"I wasn't here last year but the boys have told me they backed the club massively and I think that was shown with the season tickets sold.
"So it would be great to get through and get to a final but the draw has to be kind and we have to get over this hurdle first."
Daly admits he is relieved that Rangers have managed to hang on to their left-back Lee Wallace during the January transfer window.
Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest made two bids of just under £1million for the Scotland international last week.
Despite the worrying financial situation at the Glasgow club, those offers were rejected after falling some way short of their valuation of the player.
Wallace set up Daly for a goal in the 2-1 league victory over Brechin City at Ibrox on Saturday and the hit man is delighted he has not been sold.
He said: "Of course we are delighted that Lee is still here.
"The manager stressed that he wanted to keep the club together and thankfully, all the boys are still here and we've got a good squad."
Meanwhile, internet reports that Rangers are poised to go into administration this month and chief executive Wallace has allegedly prepared a resignation statement have been rejected.
Stories online had claimed Wallace had been locked in talks at the Ibrox club all day and was set to leave his position.
However, the former Manchester City financial director and chief operating officer was at Hampden for meetings yesterday and later attended the Rangers Under-20 match.
