CEDRIC ITTEN and Brandon Barker both start for Rangers in the Scottish Cup clash with Stirling Albion.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst included the pair in the starting XI with Itten returning from a loan in Germany and Barker back involved having been in cold storage so far this season.

The League Two side head to Ibrox hoping for a major upset but will face a pretty strong Rangers side.

Jon McLaughlin starts in goal with James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and Leon Balogun joined by Jack Simpson in the back-four.

It appears that John Lundstram and Juninho Bacuna will start in midfield with Ianis Hagi behind a front three of Barker, Itten and Fashion Sakala.

RANGERS XI: McLaughlin, Tavernier, Simpson, Goldson, Balogun, Lundstram, Hagi, Barker, Bacuna, Fashion, Itten.

Subs: McCrorie, Bassey, Sands, Wright, Roofe, McCann, King, Lowry.
