St. Mirren defender Jamie McGrath is confident the Buddies can cause a League Cup shock against Rangers on Wednesday night and secure a semi-final place.

The Irishman scored his third goal in three games as St. Mirren beat Motherwell at Fir Park and is, like his team-mates, in a good run of form at the moment.

With Rangers unbeaten in 27 games this season, McGrath knows it will be a tough task for Jim Goodwin’s side bit insists there is plenty of confidence at the SMISA Stadium.

“We know the qualities they’re bringing to the table at the minute, but we’re bringing some as well right now,” McGrath said [Not The Old Firm]

“Listen, it’s a cup game and anything can happen. We’re going through a good patch so we can go in full of confidence.

 

“This is probably a free crack at it for us. They’re the favourites and we have to live with that, but everyone here is buzzing for that game.“

The Buddies have gone nine games without defeat but still find themselves tenth in the Premiership after Covid issues saw them fored to forfeit games.
