Striker Andy Little sees no reason why Rangers cannot go all the way in the Scottish Cup as they prepare to host Elgin this weekend.

Andrew Little: Targeting long cup run

The Light Blues were keen to make an impact in the cup competitions this term, after being voted into the Third Division in the summer.

They crashed out of the Ramsdens Cup at the hands of Queen of the South, before being beaten by Inverness in the Scottish League Cup, having impressed against Motherwell in the previous round.

The Scottish Cup is their last hope of mounting a real challenge and, with Rangers expected to clinch the Third Division title this season, Little would love to see them claim a double.

He said: "Our intention was to try to win all the cups and everyone was especially disappointed to lose in the League Cup.

"It was a great chance to get into the semi-final at Hampden but we just didn't turn up that night and it was really disappointing.

"We definitely see the Scottish Cup as another chance for us.

"I don't see why we can't go all the way.

"We are now starting to find the form that we should have been showing from the very start of the season.

"We've also got a number of key players back fit again and that gives us a really good chance."

Rangers could be boosted by the return of David Templeton and Francisco Sandaza from injury ahead of Sunday's fourth round tie at Ibrox.

Little hopes he has finally resolved the foot problem that has troubled him for a number of weeks.

The Northern Ireland international said: "I feel an awful lot better.

"It was difficult for me because I kept getting set-backs.

"It would get better and then I would get a bang on it and it would flare up again.

"I've seen three specialists and I've had three or four scans and we've pretty much got to the bottom of it now, which is good.

"It's definitely feeling better so hopefully I can continue to play and just manage it throughout the week."
