Rangers have confirmed that next month’s Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup clash with National League side Solihull Moors has been re-arranged for later in the month after a number of young Gers were called up for international duty.

The Gers announced the game had been moved from the original October 12th date to Tuesday 29th with Solihull giving additional information on their website, confirming Rangers had requested a postponement under SPFL rule section G7 which entitles a club to apply for rearrangement where three or more of its players are unavailable due to international selection.

Graeme Murty’s side booked their place against Solihull with a thrilling late win over Ballymena United to add the Ulstermen to the list of senior scalps the young Gers have taken this season so far.

Wins over Berwick Rangers and Stranraer have already seen the Colts go the furthest they have in the competition and they could become the first Colt team to lift the trophy – emulating the first-team’s success in 2014.

The re-arranged clash is due to kick-off at 7.45pm in Solihull and another win would be a huge feather in the cap of Murty’s side.
