Rangers colts squeezed past Northern Irish outfit Ballymena in the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup last night - earning their place in the fourth round.

First-team fringe players Greg Docherty and Eros Grezda both played from the start, but it was Serge Atakayi who scored the winner on 87 minutes to take his side through.

In what was an emotional evening for everyone connected to Rangers, black armbands were worn by the Ibrox kids in memory of club hero Fernando Ricksen who passed away at age 43.

On the night, though, it was business as usual for Graeme Murty's Light Blues who go into the hat for the next round.

Elsewhere Rangers Women were unable to match the colts' result and fell to a 2-0 defeat to Glasgow City in the SWPL.

Again, a minute's silence was held in tribute to club legend Ricksen at the Hummel Training Centre.
