Rangers V Stirling - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

No worries for the Gers

Rangers boss Ally McCoist boasts a fully fit squad as they play host to Stirling on the weekend of the club's 140th birthday celebrations.

Kane Hemmings (knee) has continued to train this week but the match at Ibrox may come too soon for the youngster.

Emilson Cribari (calf), Ross Perry and Sebastien Faure (both hernia) remain on the sidelines.

Attacking duo David Templeton and Francisco Sandaza both returned to the squad for last weekend's cup victory over Elgin after recovering from injury and could be in contention for a starting role.

The league leaders have won their last four fixtures in the Irn-Bru Third Division and will be looking to avenge their 1-0 defeat to Stirling back in October.

Stirling boss Greig McDonald could be handed a triple boost as they travel looking to spoil the celebrations.

Gary Thom is available again following suspension while defenders David McClune and Kieran McAnespie have both been passed fit as Albion aim to record their second win over McCoist's side this season.

However, Jamie McCunnie, Jamie Clark and Danny Ashe are all ruled out through injury with Gavin McPherson a definite absentee.

McDonald said: "The Rangers anniversary has meant that not much attention has been on Stirling which suits us as that has brought little pressure.

"We have beaten Rangers once and it would be great to do so again."
