Rangers will meet Forfar Athletic in the Scottish League Cup

The Light Blues were already set to face Forfar four times this term after triumphing in the Third Division last season and now have a cup clash to look forward to at Station Park.

Ally McCoist's men - who were unseeded for the draw - exited last year's competition at the quarter-final stage to Inverness and will be hoping for a better run this time.

The draw at Hampden also sees Queen of the South face Annan in a local derby, while newly-promoted top-flight side Partick Thistle take on Ayr United.

Most of the ties are to be played on August 3, although Thistle's match will need to be moved to a midweek date as they begin their league campaign against Dundee United on August 2.
