Rangers will face Hearts in the semi-finals of the Betfred Cup after their 1-0 win over Livingston tonight at the Tony Macaroni Arena – setting up a potential Old Firm final.

The Light Blues reached the same stage of the competition last season before losing to Aberdeen and will be looking to make up for that defeat and take a step closer to ending the club’s long wait for a major trophy.

Steven Gerrard’s side will travel to the national stadium on the 2nd or 3rd of November – meaning the Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox with St. Johnstone scheduled for that weekend will need to be moved.

Rangers have lifted the trophy on 27 occasions and last won it in 2011 as Walter Smith’s side beat Celtic in the final through Nikica Jelavic’s extra-time goal.

The Gers will face a trip to Dingwall to take on Ross County a few days before heading for Mount Florida as the Light Blues deal with a hectic schedule throughout October and November.

In addition to the 1-o win over Livingston, the Gers have also beaten East Fife in this year’s competition.
