Rangers reached the final of the Glasgow Cup with a 2-0 win over Partick Thistle on Wednesday night.
Goals from Josh Jeffries and Sam Jamieson sealed the win for the Gers, who will face the winners of Celtic v Queens Park being played on Thursday.
Thistle started the brightest and had shots on goal from Callum Wilson and Andy McCarthy during the opening exchanges, with both sides lacking a cutting edge in the final third.
It was the young Jags that had the best change to break the deadlock when striker Neil McLaughlin latched onto a ball over the top, but he was adjudged to have fouled Rangers skipper Ross McCrorie by referee Kevin McElhinney.
Jason Krones fired over from Jamieson’s cross, while at the other end Mark Lamont had a shot narrowly wide of the post as both teams tried to hit each other on the counter.
Midway through the first half, Rangers took the lead. After great work from Jamieson out on the left, Jeffries took the ball round Matthew Kerr in the Thistle goal before slotting into an empty net to give the hosts a deserved lead.
Continued bursting runs from Rangers winger Ross Lyon’s saw Thistle full back James Penrice have a busy night, but kept the nippy midfielder at bay.
Both sides were content with keeping possession as the first half drew to a close, with McLaughlin dragging his effort wide as Rangers went into the break a goal to the good.
