Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers will be looking to maintain their good run of form when they take on East Fife away from home in the second round of the Scottish League Cup this afternoon.

Rangers will head into the match at the Bayview Stadium as favourites and are expected to register a comfortable victory against the Scottish League One outfit.

The Gers will head into the tie on the back of a 3-1 win against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League qualifiers.

Meanwhile, East Fife defender Craig Watson has suggested to The Scottish Sun that he would rather face Jermain Defoe than his Rangers teammate Alfredo Morelos.

Morelos is one of the best strikers in the Scottish Premiership and has been playing well for Rangers this season.

Defoe, signed on an 18-month loan deal from Bournemouth in January 2019, has been banging in the goals in recent weeks.

Watson told The Scottish Sun before the game: “I’d say Morelos to be honest if he plays.”
