Hibernian and Rangers will meet in the first round of the Petrofac Training Cup for the second year running.

The Championship rivals meet at Easter Road with the hosts out to avenge last August's 2-1 extra-time loss at Ibrox.

Trophy holders Livingston begin their defence at home to Clyde, while Cowdenbeath take on Raith Rovers in a Fife derby at Central Park.

Last season's beaten finalists Alloa Athletic are away to Highland League champions Brora Rangers.
