Champions suffer double injury blow

Rangers boss Ally McCoist is unsure if David Templeton and Andy Little will play any further part in the new League One champions' season.

The duo are both out of Saturday's clash with Dunfermline after limping off against Airdrie on Tuesday night with groin and thigh issues respectively.

Both men will be sent for scans the morning after Monday night's William Scottish Cup quarter-final replay with Albion Rovers as they join midfielder Lewis Macleod (knee) and defender Ross Perry (ankle) on the list of absentees.

Dunfermline manager Jim Jefferies will not name his team until after a Saturday lunchtime fitness check on captain Josh Falkingham.

Definitely out for the Pars, however, are Jordan Moore (leg) and Ryan Wallace (ankle).

Jefferies is anticipating a tough afternoon despite Rangers having already clinched the league title.

He said: "I am not sure what side Rangers will put out but what I am sure of is that the team that we face will be expected to win.

"We let ourselves down in a cup tie there recently and I am looking for a better performance this time."
