The Rangers Colts won’t have to wait much longer to find out their fate after securing their place in the semis of the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge cup.

The draw for the rebranded Challenge cup tournament will take place on Wednesday the 20th of November at noon [Daily Record] and will involve the Young Gers after Graeme Murty’s side earned their spot by beating Wrexham 2-0.

With SPFL sides Raith Rovers, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Partick Thistle the remaining teams in the hat, it’ll be the third time the young side have faced Scottish competition in the tournament.

To get to the semi-final the Rangers Colts have had to navigate five rounds so far.

The Ibrox youngsters started off their Challenge Cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Berwick Rangers, before defeating Stranraer 2-0 in the second round.

A trip to Northern Ireland followed, where the young bears dispatched Ballymena United 1-0 away from home.

The toughest tests of the competition were to follow, with Rangers dumping conference sides Solihull Moors on penalties before comfortably defeating Wrexham 2-0 at Ibrox at the weekend.

Graeme Murty paid tribute to his charges after the match, with the Conference clubs presenting real, physical tests for a young side which had an average age of 18.5.

The semi-final ties of the competition are scheduled for the weekend of February 15/16, with the final set for March 28/29.
