Sunday, Easter Road, 4.05pm, live on BBC Alba

RANGERS go hunting for their second silverware of the season tomorrow – and bookies make them hot favourites to do so.

The Ibrox men face a Raith Rovers side a league above them but that doesn't wash with the layers.

Bookies are running scared of a team unbeaten in League One and with a fanbase ready to back them to the hilt – in shops and at a sell-out Easter Road.

I'm struggling to call it simply because no one knows how good or bad Rangers actually are. Defenders of Ally McCoist will say they can only beat what's put in front of them and critics claim they should taking out teams such as Brechin, Arbroath and Stranraer much more easily.

One defeat in four competitions – at Forfar in the League Cup back in August – suggests Rangers know how to cross the line and I'm backing them to take the Ramsdens Cup back to Ibrox.

The only side they've faced higher ranked than Raith this season is Falkirk in the Scottish Cup and that resulted in a battling away win against a side reduced to 10 men.

Rangers are a best 8-15 at Coral to win in 90 minutes and 1-5 with McBookie on the outrights. McBookie offer the Rangers victory at 12-5 for new customers (see terms and conditions).

Rovers are 7-1 at Paddy Power to win and 7-2 with the firm to lift the trophy. Grant Murray's team beat Hibs in the Scottish Cup at Easter Road so the ground will hold happy memories.

However, they've been off the boil in recent weeks with just two wins in six.

Old guard Jon Daly (7-2, bet365) and Lee McCulloch (13-2, bet365) will be backed to score first – but what about a punt on Fraser Aird at 7-2 with Betfred and bet365 to score at any time with the youngster netting in his last three matches.

    Rangers should have enough to win against Rovers which should improve the price for the Dundee Utd game who are a much better side than they showed today

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Duncan, just got a text from McBookie who go 7-5 Dundee Utd against Rangers. I thought they be closer to evens to be honest.

    Raith will smoke Rangers tomorrow, 6/1 @SkyBet massive price. Double it up with Dundee United to beat Rangers in tge Scottish for a 15/1 double :)

    Cheers Mr f will jump on straight away as I don’t think this will last long , looks good value to me

  4. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    Jon Daly is a doubt for the match. I like the look of Aird @ 7/2 and what about Nicky Law @ 11/2 with Coral? He’s as short as 2/1 with Ladbrokes and Paddy Power with next best price @ 7/2.

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Chris, Aird to score is the bet for me. Daly is a doubt as you say and I think Law’s a worry too.

  5. Chris Guy 7 years ago

    He’s also 14/1 for first goal which Ladbrokes go 6/1

  6. alva glen 7 years ago

    Not touching this till I see Gers team but surely every neutral will be on Raith at that price .

  7. WEIRD AL 7 years ago

    Faith have had there minds in this since the semis last year and I think that’s a big part for there poor form. The have it in there locker to pull it off today and I would recommend small stakes on Raith to win on pens 22/1

    Rangers fan and been painfull at Ibrox this season, mince. But some big players and will be up for our first final since events. Always profited from taking the -1 on favorites in on leg finals as no point losing by one and if winning openings will come to Rangers if winning at any point.
    Waiting for Gers for 10 fold from yesterdays tips, 127 from five. So just a tenner on -1 despite 500 balance from yesterday. Withdraw as nothing of value today. Thanks mr F for tips yesterday as great day and walk away up and pay bills.

    I think by struggling to call it, you have called this spot on MR F.

    There is no way of telling how Rangers will fare against higher league opposition. Their game against Falkirk was not an easy victory but Falkirk have proven themselves to be a decent young outfit. Raith on the other hand. They have been pretty poor even before their Easter Road miracle.

    You have to believe that Rangers have been playing within themselves in League 1 though. The sheer volume of victories shows that. The calibre of player at Ibrox is still way abpve Raith Rovers but has a season in the division below blunted them slighty? I cant bring myself to back them although I would be at 12/5.

    Weird Al, you could be quids in here unless Raith get a well deserved winner :)
