Kane Hemmings says there is no reason why Rangers can’t overcome Scottish Premier League opponents Motherwell in the third round of the Scottish Communities League Cup.
Plying their trade in the Third Division owing to the liquidation of their former holding company, Rangers will be underdogs for the visit of the current SPL leaders when they travel to Ibrox in late September.
Despite their league status, Rangers snapped up winger David Templeton from Hearts on deadline day, supplementing a strong squad which also includes key men such as Ian Black, Lee Wallace, Dean Shiels and Fran Sandaza.
"It's a decent draw," said Hemmings. "Motherwell are a good team and they are leaders of the SPL at the moment.
"But, if you look at our club, we still have some of the best players in Scotland so I think we have to be positive going into the game.
"I don't know if we will be favourites or not but we will still be positive.
"We know the strengths we've got in the squad so I don't see why we can't get a result."
