Rangers midfielder Arnold Peralta will miss out against Raith Rovers in the Ramsdens Cup Final due to suspension after being booked at both the quarter-final and semi-final stage.

Bilel Mohsni returns after missing the 2-1 win over Arbroath through a ban and Nicky Law is expected to be passed fit for the showdown.

Doubts remain over both Ian Black and Jon Daly with David Templeton as well as Andrew Little ruled out with knocks.

Lewis Macleod is unavailable after suffering from the illness that has affected his heart muscles.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist said: “We are heading into this Final on the back of a good run of results although the performances have not been fast and free flowing. We have gone to Brechin and Arbroath and faced sides fighting for everything and won.”

“That is good going and also good preparation for this game as Raith will battle for everything.  We are the favourites but we will not be underestimating Raith. We have done our homework and I had a long chat with Terry Butcher as they knocked his Hibs side out of the Scottish Cup at Easter Road.”

McCoist added: “Terry confirmed what I already knew in that they can raise their game and be very dangerous. They also gave St Johnstone a good game in the next round of the Scottish.”

“They have nothing to lose in this game and we cannot just turn up and win. We will need to work hard for the right to win the Ramsdens Cup."

Raith Rovers goalkeeper David McGurn, who has been with them since 2008, misses out against Rangers due to the achilles tendon injury that has kept him out since October.

Former St Johnstone and Alloa midfielder Kevin Moon is a slight doubt after a hamstring injury however he played for 20 minutes in the 1-0 win over Alloa last weekend and trained this week and manager Grant Murray is confident that Moon can be called on.

Manager  Murray said: “We are the underdogs but we have shown in Cup ties all season how dangerous we can be including one at Easter Road. The boys have been relaxed and upbeat all week.”

“It is a huge game and I think the magnitude of it will hit the players when they arrive at Easter Road and then run out to a full stadium. I am sure that they can handle the occasion and put on a good performance.”

Murray added: “It is Raith’s first final since the Coca-Cola one 1994 and it is Rangers’ first final in the Ramsdens Cup so it is quite a unique occasion and one hopefully we can come out on top.”
