Rangers boss Walter Smith has ruled Jean-Claude Darcheville and Brahim Hemdani out of his plans for Tuesday´s Champions League clash with Barcelona.

French striker Darcheville has been a key man in European games for Rangers since joining in the summer but a hamstring problem keeps him out, and holding midfielder Hemdani is struggling with a groin problem.

Hemdani has also featured prominently in Europe, occupying the crucial role protecting the back four.
