A quick Latin question.

When pronouncing 'globus cruciger', would the second c in cruciger be the same as that in the English pronunciation of crucifixion, i.e. a soft c?

I haven't done very much medieval Latin, and my limited classical Latin is conflicting with my first response.

Many thanks in advance!
