As we approach our fourth and final group stage game of the revamped League Cup, it's worth having a recap of progress so far. On that face if it, three wins out of three, nine points, seven goals scored and none conceded is positive but it's difficult to analyse the performance effectively given the standard of opposition.
Rangers overcame their third test in this new League Cup format as they comfortably dispatched East Stirling 3-0 at Ochilview.
Andy Halliday's penalty kick followed by Josh Windass' first competitive Rangers goal in the first half was added to by debutant Joe Dodoo in the second. The victory now leaves the Light Blues with a 100% record and they look like they will ease their way into the next round with minimal fuss.
Rangers started the League Cup campaign with what can only be described as a comprehensive 2-0 victory in front of 4,500 travelling fans at Fir Park.
Let’s be honest from the outset. In the same way Rangers deserved to beat Celtic earlier in the competition, Hibernian dominated us in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final. For the majority of the game they were a yard quicker, they worked incredibly hard and, unlike the previous five games this season, were the better team by a fair distance. Ergo, as I cautioned in my match preview on Friday, there was no shock here in an exciting final that mirrored the free-scoring games between the clubs already this season. In the same way we were emotional in April, generations of Hibs fans must be beyond delighted and, after almost 115 years of disappointment, no-one can deny them in their moment of glory.
