East Stirling v Rangers Betting Preview
Betfred Scottish League Cup

Rangers have two wins from two games and are set to top the group with something to spare.
A comfortable win against non league East Stirling should be the lowest of expectations. But as with the game against Annan on Tuesday night it may pay to be cautious with the handicaps.
Mark Warburton is likely to mix the team around a bit more so expecting a barrel load of goals might be optimistic. Although new signing Joe Dodoo might have something to say about that.
The former Leicester City youngster has arrived with some expectations following his protracted move to Scotland. A new striker was an imperative for Rangers and Dodoo might just fit the bill. There isn’t a huge amount of match experience to draw on so it will be a case of wait and see if he can step up to the mark.
East Stirling almost pulled off one of the biggest shocks of the last round of matches when they took the lead away to Stranraer. Two goals in the last two minutes puts a worse complexion on that result but the Lowland League side performed well.
It will be a major boost to their confidence before stepping out in front of the TV cameras. But they are up against a tide they are unlikely to stem. A comfortable victory is expected but you will struggle to find value.
