Rangers will learn League Cup foe on Thursday

Rangers will discover who they will face in the last eight of the Scottish League Cup when the draw is made on Thursday, October 4 at 1:30 p.m. local time, the club's Andrew Dickson reports.

The remaining seven clubs are Premier League sides Aberdeen, Celtic, Dundee United, Hearts, Inverness, St Johnstone and St Mirren.  Rangers are the first Third Division side in the quarter-finals since Ross County in 1998.

Oddsmakers have Rangers as second favorites to win the League Cup.  Rangers have won the league cup 27 times, in 1947, 1949, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1971, 1976, 1978, 1979, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2011.

"The draw for the next stage of the Scottish Cup, meanwhile, will take place this coming Monday morning (October 1) at Hamilton Racecourse," the club reports.

"Rangers will hope to be in the hat after their second round trip north to face Highland League champions Forres Mechanics at Mosset Park this weekend."
