26-year-old is a huge miss: Three things learned about Rangers in win v Fraserburgh
Rangers eased their way into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup – and a trip to face Ayr United – on Wednesday night when they beat Highland League minnows Fraserburgh 3-0 at Bellslea Park.
Gers manager Graeme Murty made six changes to the side which beat Ross County at the weekend as a Josh Windass hat-trick booked the Light Blues’ place in the next round.
Despite the difficult conditions, the Gers were in control throughout and never looked in danger of falling victim to a giant-killing – 59 years to the day after Broch defeated Dundee in arguably the most famous Scottish Cup shock in history.
With a number of his fringe players on display, Murty looked to give an opportunity to some of the players in his squad who haven’t had regular game-time so far this season.
The likes of Andy Halliday, Fabio Cardoso, Lee Hodson and Jak Alnwick came into the side to make rare starts with James Tavernier, Wes Foderingham, Alfredo Morelos and Russell Martin among those rested.
