Rangers Colts could face English opposition in Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup

Rangers Colts or Ballymena United will face Solihull Moors in the next round of the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Cup after the draw was made earlier today.

The young Gers are one of only a handful of Colt teams left in the competition and could find themselves coming up against National League opposition in the English side.

Graeme Murty’s young side travel to Northern Ireland next week to face the Sky Blues at the Showgrounds and will be hoping to reach the last 16 with a win.

Murty’s Colts have already beaten Berwick and Stranraer to reach the third round and beating the NIFL Premiership side would be a real feather in their cap.

The fourth round is due to take place on Saturday 12 October or Sunday 13 October but if Rangers reach that far it’ll likely be moved to avoid clashing with international call-ups.

The Gers have won the trophy once before when Mark Warburton’s side beat Peterhead in the final at Hampden to set an attendance record unlikely to be matched in the competition.

Solihull faced Barry Ferguson’s Kelty Hearts last weekend, winning 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time between the sides.
