The Gers now progress to the fourth round of the tournament and did so in emphatic fashion at the Rangers Training Centre.

This youthful side put in an inspired display to absolutely thrash their northern rivals in a comprehensive and confidence-boosting victory.

Robbie Ure made it 3-0 just two minutes later before Leyton Dunlop made it four 60 seconds later. Northern Irish youth international Ure added his second five minutes before half-time.
