RANGERS will be unseeded when the first round draw of the League Cup takes place at Hampden tomorrow.

And that means they will draw one of the 10 First Division sides or the top five in the Second Division from last season.

The draw takes place at 2.30pm with the first round scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 3 – a week before the beginning of the league campaign.

So Rangers will face one of the following:

Partick Thistle, Morton, Falkirk, Livingston, Hamilton, Raith, Dumbarton, Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline, Airdrie, Queen of the South, Alloa, Brechin, Forfar, Arbroath.

The Light Blues produced their finest performance of last season in the League Cup when they knocked out Motherwell with a 2-0 win at Ibrox when the Steelmen were top of the SPL at the time.

They had eliminated East Fife and Falkirk before that victory over Stuart McCall’s side but they came unstuck in the quarter-finals against Inverness Caley Thistle.

Rangers, of course, have won the competition a record 27 times with the last victory coming in 2010/11 when Steve Davis and Nikica Jelavic scored in a 2-1 win over Celtic.
