The Ibrox side haven’t lifted the trophy since 2011 and will kick-start their quest with a last-16 tie against the Doonhamers.

Rangers begin their journey in the Premier Sports Cup against SPFL League One side Queen of the South at Ibrox - a competition they won since 2011.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side will aim to go one step further than they achieved last term when they were knocked out by Premiership rivals Hibernian in the semi-finals at Hampden Park.

The Light Blues hit four goals without reply against Ross County on league duty at the weekend, with goals from John Lundstram, Stteven Davis, and a brace from Croatian frontman Antonio Colak.

Rangers have only conceded three times domestically so far and they should have enough quality to see off a Queen of the South side who suffered relegation from the Championship last term.

The Doonhamers, who qualified for the second round as one of the best-placed runners-up teams having won three of their four group stage games, will arrive in Govan as massive underdogs.

Willie Gibson’s men suffered a 3-1 defeat to Falkirk on Saturday after defender Paul McKay was sent off in the second half and they will know a huge improvement is required to trouble Rangers.
