Morton captain Lee Kilday is reading nothing into the pressure facing Rangers ahead of their William Hill Scottish Cup encounter at Ibrox.

But the former Hamilton defender is taking encouragement from Morton's recent draw in Govan.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton is under intense scrutiny going into Saturday's fifth-round tie after his team slipped to third in the Ladbrokes Premiership following a heavy defeat to Hearts and a home draw with Ross County.

But Kilday told his club's official website: "We don't think about anything surrounding Rangers.

"It's a game of football at the end of the day, and it's away from the league so it gives them something else to think about. On the day, whoever plays the best football will get the victory."

The defender is optimistic that could be his side. Morton have won five of their last six games and sit third in the Ladbrokes Championship after their midweek win over Raith Rovers.

Jim Duffy's men also reached the Betfred Cup semi-finals this season and earned a point at Ibrox last season as well as opening the scoring on another visit which ended in a 3-1 loss.

"We were at Ibrox twice last year and we did pretty well when we went there," Kilday said.

"We do look back to the 2-2 draw and think it's achievable. Anything can happen in cup games and we'll go into it full of confidence.

"Rangers are obviously very good and it will be a hard game, but as I said, we went there last season and got a draw, so I don't see any reason why we can't go there and get something."
