The Rangers B team have celebrated being voted into the Lowland League for another season by thumping Championship promotion hopefuls Queen’s Park in the Glasgow Cup.

The Ibrox youngsters will enjoy a third stint in what is effectively the fifth tier of Scottish football after the member clubs voted Rangers, Celtic and Hearts B teams back into the Lowland League.

Only East Stirlingshire voted against the inclusion of the clubs, claiming the call was “forced upon” the division and the situation “reflects negatively on our league”.

Rangers B have put in a competitive showing in the division this season – with the Ibrox side aiming to let its young players play competitive football in order to aid their development – and currently sit third in the table.

Rangers have two games in hand on Celtic, who’re five points above them in second, whilst they only have one on Spartans in first, who sit on 78 points. Hearts B are 13th.

But whilst the chance to be crowned Lowland League Champions is out of Rangers’ reach this season the Glasgow Cup is still firmly in the Ibrox youngster’s sights.

Rangers B dump Queen’s Park after Lowland League news

This comes after a B team demolition of Championship side Queen’s Park, whose recent investment sees them as genuine Premiership hopefuls, in an impressive 4-0 victory at the Rangers training centre.

Robbie Ure and Thompson Ishaka had the young Gers in dreamland at halftime before young Scottish talent Ure completed a double and England youth international Zak Lovelace completed the scoring.

However, this was a much changed Queen’s Park team who put out a completely different team from the weekend’s win over Hamilton despite the club – alongside Partick Thistle and Clyde – being free to field senior stars.

Rangers B are the current holders of the competition and will be hoping to add silverware to the club’s youth ranks by going on to lift the Glasgow Cup in the coming weeks.

But for now the club can rest easy knowing the Rangers B team will be turning out in the Lowland League next season as this major positive from Ross Wilson’s reign continues to hold firm.
