The former Scottish Premier league club Rangers were set to play against Elgin in the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round, but that match was postponed due to selling tickets more than the allocated seating capacity.

Elgin's Borough Briggs has a capacity of just over 4500, but the team was found guilty of selling more than 1000 tickets in addition for the match against Rangers. As a result, they have been fined £ 25,000 and the match has also been postponed. However, this will not affect the preparation of the match according to the Rangers manager Ally McCoist, who has also said that his team should not take the opposition lightly.

The prospect of Rangers progressing to the next round of the cup has been boosted by the return of the striker Francisco Sandaza back to the first team action. The striker suffered a cheekbone fracture back in September when he was playing against Motherwell. However, the Rangers manager has revealed that he is closer to the first-team action than before. Initially, he was expected to be out for the year, but this incredible comeback means that McCoist will have a great option upfront. He recently scored in the 3-1 win over Livingston reserves, who played against Rangers reserves.

"The weekend was a disappointment but we are over it and looking forward to the next challenge. We now have to look ahead to the home game in the cup and against the same opposition. When you look at the team at the moment I think they've scored the same amount of goals as ourselves (in the league) albeit they have played a game more. But they certainly do have players in their team that can score goals and they do attack," said the Rangers manager on the official website of the club.
