GAMES are coming fast and furious for Mark Warburton’s side as they build up to their big-time return in the Premiership.
Rangers hardly broke sweat as they added a second Betfred Cup win against Annan in midweek and it should be more of the same against East Stirling tonight.
Most clubs are using the new-look tournament as preparation for the new season but Gers have made the perfect start with two wins to nil and a third is on the cards.
Rangers are no bigger than 1-10 with the sponsors at a club who are now a Lowland League outfit after losing their senior status last season.
Shire, however, put up a decent fight in their openers as they went down 3-1 defeat at Stranraer when they conceded two late goals.
To win to nil the Ibrox men are 8-13 at Ladbrokes and with a couple of 2-0 wins under their belts should be looking at something like 3-0 or 4-0. Gers minus two pays just 4-6 at Skybet so if you consider the line for a value bet is set at evens consider minus three at 27-20 with Coral.
Martyn Waghorn has netted in both cup clashes and is 13-5 at McBookie to score first. Warburton’s been chopping and changing as he sizes up his new players so check if last season’s top scorer is starting before having a bet.
Kenny Miller is 7-2 at Coral with Josh Windass 4-1 and Michael O’Halloran 5-1.
The other game in Gers’ group sees Motherwell travel to Annan tomorrow and Mark McGhee’s men will be looking for the points after losing their opener. The Premiership side are 2-5 at Betfred.
