Shell-shocked Uhlsport-Rangers manager Philip Lee Fai-lap fears his side will have no fight left in them for tonight's FA Cup semi-final against Sing Tao after Thursday night's humiliating 8-1 league defeat by South China. 'It's no use. We'll probably lose because the players don't have the heart to continue, nor do they have the spirit, especially after losing so heavily against South China,' said Lee of their encounter against the Tigers at Siu Sai Wan Stadium. 'I know it doesn't sound too optimistic but we are doomed. Besides, most of our players know who they are playing for next season.' Rumours abound that Rangers are experiencing management problems caused by the abrupt exit of Rangers' chairman Lam Tai-fai, who has signed personal contracts with at least eight Rangers players, including English goalkeeper Peter Guthrie, and will join Happy Valley. Rangers' hopes of staying in the top flight were shot down by a rampant South China forward line which condemned once-mighty Rangers to the Second Division for the first time in four seasons. High-flying Sing Tao, who last week dumped crowd favourites South China out of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory, courtesy of a sudden-death goal by Ian Muir, are heavily favoured to reach their fourth cup final inside nine months. Having won the pre-season Regional Council Cup and the President's Cup, Sing Tao defied the odds again by winning the Viceroy Cup in April after a disappointing league run. Sing Tao goalkeeper Iain Hesford remains cautious of Rangers, even though the club suffered the worst defeat by any side this season. 'If a team has a bad result, they will try their best to come back. We shouldn't think we will win easily tonight. It will be a difficult game for us.' Sing Tao's former Welsh international, Glyn Hodges, said a win was not in the bag just yet, adding: 'Rangers might only have rested for tonight's big game. 'The 8-1 result does not reflect their actual strength. They beat us once [1-0] and we drew once in the league [1-1]. If they can come back in time, they can cause an upset.' Meanwhile, Instant-Dict take on relegation-bound Eastern, looking for their second cup final appearance of the season in the first match of a double-header scheduled at Siu Sai Wan Stadium. The Dickies were losing finalists to South China in the Senior Challenge Shield in December but are tipped to win their trophy in the FA Cup final on June 1.
