Sisters to go head to head in Scottish Women's Cup semi final

Brogan and Kodie Hay, who play for Rangers and Motherwell respectively, will come up against each other in last-four clash.

History will be made at Hampden Park this weekend, when the Scottish Women’s Cup semi-finals are played there for the first time.

Rangers will face Motherwell on Saturday, before Celtic take on Glasgow City on Sunday.

The final will also be played at the national stadium, on May 28.

But for one family from Lanarkshire, it will be momentous for more than one reason.

Sisters Brogan and Kodie Hay, who play for Rangers and Motherwell respectively, will come up against each other in the first last-four clash.

Speaking to STV News, Brogan said: “Straight after the [quarter-finals] the draw was being made that night, and the first thing that came through was Kodie texting like ‘Rangers’ and I’m thinking ‘oh of course, Motherwell’.

The siblings started their careers together at Glasgow City.

“I think it was kind of made to happen, it just feels like a special occasion.”

The siblings started their careers together at Glasgow City, before both moving on to other clubs.

Mum Stephanie Mckay said seeing them run out together on such a big occasion will be special.

“It’ll be absolutely amazing, such a proud moment, just seeing how far they’ve come,” she said.

Brogan and Kodie say they hope this weekend’s games will help to encourage more young girls into the game.

Kodie said: “It’s such a big motivation. The growth in the game is already massive, but seeing things like this start to happen just shows that these things are becoming a reality.”

Brogan added: “We have a little cousin, who’s just started playing football, and I think for her to see this kind of opportunity so close to home is massive. We wouldn’t have imagined something like this at her age.”

Stephanie said whichever way the result goes on Saturday, it’ll be a day she remembers for a long time.

She said: “Obviously I’d love to see them both go through to the final but that’s not going to happen. But I’m just so proud of them, regardless.”
