Match preview

Holders Rangers are expected to cruise through to the semi-finals.

So far, Mick Beale’s team have edged out St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, before a five-goal thriller against Partick Thistle.

That game will always be remembered for Malik Tillman’s very controversial goal, that was cancelled out, but it was the now departed James Sands who headed home the winner.

Elsewhere, the Light Blues are still second in the Premiership, nine points adrift of Celtic, and were beaten in the League Cup Final last month.,

So, this is, probably, the Gers’ only hope of silverware, meaning they simply cannot afford to slip-up here.

Raith Rovers meanwhile have so far overcome Auchinleck Talbot, Linlithgow Rose and then top-flight Motherwell, that a big shock, to get this far, thereby earning themselves this glamour trip to Glasgow.

Rovers only appearance in the final of this competition came 110 years ago, dreaming of their first appearance in the last four since 2010.

Rangers though should be far too strong at Ibrox.
