Ross County manager Owen Coyle is urging his players to match the heroics of his St Johnstone side which triumphed against Rangers on his last visit to Ibrox 11 years ago.
Coyle oversaw a 2-0 victory against the Gers in a League Cup quarter-final tie in Glagsow in November 2006, with the then First Division side triumphing thanks to a double from striker Steven Milne.
Coyle, who left to join Burnley the following year, will be aiming to repeat the feat when he returns to Govan this afternoon aiming to help County record their first win at Ibrox, and he is calling on a similar show of character from his Staggies players.
Coyle said: “We won on merit, we were terrific on the night with Steven Milne scoring both the goals.
“It was an outstanding team performance. We really went and believed and trusted in one another, and that’s what we have to do again.
“We have played very well in different types of games, and we need to bring every quality and attribute we have.
“They will be boosted and buoyed by their last couple of performances. They have jumped back up to second in the league and will be looking to kick on.
“We have to make sure we are ready to match everything they’ve got and show we can play a little bit ourselves.”
Rangers’ interim manager Graeme Murty will continue to take charge today, however Coyle says facing Rangers away from home is no disadvantage based on recent form, adding: “Rangers have probably picked up more points away from home than they have at home, which is very unusual.
“Normally for the big two, the home ground is a fortress. That being said, we have to try and capitalise on that.
“The only way we do that is by every one of our players being at the top of their game.
“We will be very respectful of the quality they have and the confidence they will have from their last couple of games.
“We have shown we are capable of mixing it up with the best teams and that’s what we have to do – and if there is something to capitalise on, make sure we are in a position to do that.”
Midfielder Jim O’Brien will return following a hamstring injury, however skipper Andrew Davies remains 50-50.
