Falkirk manager Lee Miller has spoken about his side being drawn against Rangers in the League Cup and admits he feels sorry for the Bairns fans who will miss out.
The Gers travel to the Falkirk Stadium on November 29 and will be looking for a comfortable win against the League One title challengers.
Miller insists his team don’t fear facing the Light Blues but conceded that there will be some “nervous energy” among his players when Steven Gerrard’s side come calling.
“You want to test yourself against the best teams and it will be a good test for us because they’re obviously the in-form team in the country just now,” Miller said.
“A lot of the boys in the squad haven’t played against the Old Firm yet so it will be a good test for them.
“Our squad hasn’t got that fear factor, they don’t fear anybody, they just go out and play. Yes, you get nervous, but nervous energy is good going into a game.
“You want that from your players and I’m sure they’ll be up for it.
“The boys have got a spring in their step and a few massive games to look forward to, and that’s what we want.
“We want big games to be involved in, it would be better if the fans were back and we could pack this place out. I feel sorry for the fans who won’t be here.”
The game will be shown live on Premier Sport with a 5pm kick off and it could be a chance for Gerrard to give his fringe men some minutes.
The likes of Glenn Middleton, Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey could come into contention as Gerrard’s side recover from facing Benfica at Ibrox a few days prior.
