Rangers Colts learn semi-final opponents in Challenge Cup

Rangers Colts will face Inverness CT in the semi-final of the Challenge Cup after the draw was completed earlier today at Hampden.

The Light Blues youngsters are the last remaining Colt side left in the competition and will face Caley in Inverness on February 15th or 16th.

Graeme Murty’s side have already conquered Berwick Rangers, Stranraer, Ballymena United, Solihull Moors and Wrexham this season to reach the last four and will be hoping to reach the final with another win over senior opposition.

The Colts boss admitted before the draw that he had no preference over who the Gers were drawn to face, and a clash against John Robertson’s side will be another massive test of his players’ abilities.

The other semi-final sees Partick take on Raith at Firhill with the final set to take place in March – with the potential for the game to be held at Hampden.

Murty’s side have put in some fantastic performances in the competition so far this season and thoroughly deserve to be in the semi-finals alongside Championship sides.

Incredibly, there is almost a full team worth of players who would have been likely regulars in Murty’s side currently out on loan and it only serves to highlight the fantastic work being done at the Academy.

If Murty’s side can somehow go on and emulate the first-team success in the same competition under Mark Warburton, it would be a huge feather in their cap and send out a big statement about the direction the club is headed.
