Rangers matches to be switched due to Commonwealth Games

Rangers forward Nicky Clark challenges Raith Rovers goalkeeper Lee Robinson in last season's Challenge Cup final

Rangers' first two fixtures of the season are being rearranged due to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The Ibrox side were due to play the first round of the Challenge Cup on 26 July and the first round of the League Cup on 2 August.

But with Glasgow 2014 taking place at the same time, the SPFL said after talks with Police Scotland it was decided the games should be switched.

The new dates for these matches are yet to be confirmed.

Rangers were knocked out of the League Cup in the first round by Forfar last season, and reached the final of the Challenge Cup but lost 1-0 against Raith Rovers.
