With Hampden Park unavailable because of preparations for the Commonwealth Games, the only other stadium capable of accommodating the expected demand from Ibrox fans would be that of their city rivals.
The Scottish Professional Football League will wait until after Rangers, Raith Rovers, Stenhousemuir and Annan Athletic have completed their semi-finals, the draw for which will take place today, before holding talks on the matter, with any decision dependant on potentially prohibitive rental costs.
A further difficulty is that Rangers are scheduled to face Dunfermline Athletic in SPFL League 1 on the same weekend as the semi-finals. That encounter, on October 12, will not be postponed as it has been selected for live television coverage by Sky Sports and kicks off at 5.30pm. Therefore, a new date must be found for Rangers last-four tie.
The Ibrox club, meanwhile, have agreed a compensation package with Coventry City after the Sky Bet League 1 side signed Stuart Urquhart, the Scotland under-18 captain, on a three-year deal. Rangers protected their right to a fee by offering the defender fresh terms during the summer.
