Dean Shiels marked his debut with a goal as Rangers defeated East Fife 4-0 in the first round of the Scottish Communities League Cup.

Lee McCulloch claimed a double and Lee Wallace was also on the scoresheet in the first match at Ibrox since Rangers were consigned to liquidation and voted into the Irn-Bru Third Division.

This game was always likely to attract a bigger than usual crowd for a cup tie on a Tuesday night, with an official attendance of 38,160. But the demand for tickets was so great ahead of kick-off, the start time was delayed by 15 minutes with a large number of fans still outside at 7.45pm.
