St Johnstone's Wright: Cup final 'means everything for the club'

St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright was over the moon after his side managed to qualify for the Scottish Cup final on the weekend.

Two second-half goals from Stevie May allowed the Saints to record a come-from-behind 2-1 triumph over Aberdeen at Ibrox to set up a May 17 final with Dundee United.

Wright was thrilled to be at the helm of a bunch of players who are on the verge of creating history in what will be their first major cup final.

"It means everything for the club, the supporters and the players," Wright told Sky Sports.

"They've put a lot into this season and now we've got a cup final. I thought they were magnificent and I don't think anyone can begrudge us the result.

"We stayed in the game and were always a threat, so I'm really pleased. This club doesn't get the publicity I feel it deserves. It's a really great day all round for everybody."
