Rangers v Forfar preview

Rangers keeper Cammy Bell is a doubt for Tuesday's Scottish League One clash against Forfar Athletic at Ibrox.

Bell will need to be checked out by the club doctor before manager Ally McCoist is in a position to name his starting XI.

He missed Saturday's Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Dundee United due to concussion and Steve Simonsen, who deputised against Jackie McNamara's side, is again on stand-by to replace him.

Full-back Lee Wallace missed out against United and he, along with long-term absentees David Templeton, Andy Little and Lewis MacLeod, is again confined to the sidelines.

Wallace and Templeton will have scans on hip and groin problems respectively while Little has a thigh injury and MacLeod is ill.

McCoist will be desperate for his League One champions to bounce back from Saturday's cup loss to maintain their goal of going through the league campaign unbeaten.

Forfar counterpart Dick Campbell will welcome son Iain back into the fold after the defender served his two-match suspension but forward Jamie McCluskey looks certain to be ruled out through injury.

However, Campbell should be boosted by the news that former St Johnstone midfielder Martyn Fotheringham, who missed last week's game against Dunfermline with a rib injury, should be fit to face the champions.

Forfar have already beaten the Ramsdens Cup finalists this season, having triumphed 2-1 at Station Park in the first round of the Scottish League Cup last August.
