Rangers will be seeded if they beat ICT

 

THE SPFL are braced for a backlash after it emerged Rangers could end up being seeded after today’s League Cup last 16 draw – despite the club being ranked 23rd.

 

The Ibrox side face Inverness Caledonian Thistle in round two and have been told the winner will go straight into the hat for round three of the competition as one of the eight seeded sides.

 

Do Rangers deserve to be seeded in the Third Round of the League Cup?

 

YES

NO

 

 

 

The SPFL say they had to make the move as Gers are a round behind other clubs due to Ibrox being out of use during the Commonwealth Games.

 

If they see off Caley, Rangers would avoid the big guns while the eighth-ranked side would get a tougher tie.

 

But the SPFL insist their hands are tied ahead of today’s draw. Operations chief Anton Fagan said: “This was done to ensure the smooth running of the tournament.”

Trying to arm another stoshie which makes for easy 'journalism'.

 

There is precedent for this in UEFA competition and besides if Rangers were to beat ICT and qualify for the 3rd round then they would only be taking the place of the seed, who they had beaten on the pitch.
