RANGERS have been pushed out in the betting for the Third Division title after struggling to beat Brechin in the Ramsdens Cup on Sunday.
However, the “out” odds are 1-20 from 1-33 with McBookie.com who may have to review that price once again if the likes of Dean Shiels signs on for the Ibrox men.
Rangers are also out to 20-1 to beat Celtic in any cup-tie (from 12-1) this season after needing extra time to close out their tie at Glebe Park.
East Fife have been cut to 3-1 to knock Rangers out of the Scottish Communities League Cup in next Tuesday's first-round tie.
McBookie spokesman Paul Petrie said: “This was our first chance to see the Rangers line-up in action and they made hard work of justifying their pre-match odds of 1-4.
“Rangers still look a shoe-in for the Third Division but at 20-1 it now seems unlikely they will be capable of beating Celtic in one of the Cups with this much-weakened squad.
“Their next big test will come against East Fife in the Scottish Communities League Cup and Rangers are 2-9 to go through and 3-1 from 9-2 for an early exit.”
