The TV details for Rangers’ Scottish Cup Third Round clash against Cove Rangers have been confirmed following an update from Premier Sports.
It will be the Gers’ first outing in the competition this season and Steven Gerrard has made it clear that with 55 already secured, the Cup is now his no.1 priority [Glasgow Times].
The tie will take place on Sunday evening and is one of several fixtures that has been selected for live TV coverage.
The BBC is screening three matches but Premier Sports have picked up the ties involving the Old Firm clubs.
They tweeted out details on Thursday afternoon, confirming that their coverage of Rangers vs Cove will begin half an hour prior to kick-off, at 6pm.
The match will only be available to those who have a Premier Sports subscription.

While the knock-out nature of the competition removes any margin for error, Gerrard is likely to hand opportunities to several fringe players in the game.
Cove, who are managed by Paul Hartley, may also make some changes, as the ex-Celtic player has insisted that their focus must remain on their League One promotion push.
They currently sit second in the third tier and defeated Airdrieonians 2-0 in their most recent outing on Tuesday night.
