    Rangers boss Mark Warburton has no new injuries for Saturday's Petrofac Training Cup semi-final with St Mirren at Ibrox.

    However, Warburton hopes to be able to welcome midfielder Nicky Law back into the fold within the next fortnight after his knee injury.

    Winger David Templeton and keeper Cammy Bell are both unlikely to feature before Christmas after lengthy spells out with knee injuries of their own.

    Mark Warburton has been stunned by the adverse reaction to his side dropping points

    St Mirren have met Rangers twice this season and will be hoping to make it third time lucky this weekend having lost the previous two; falling 3-1 at Ibrox in early August and going down 1-0 in Paisley last month.

    Saints are looking to make the final for the first time since 2005, when they won the competition, beating Hamilton 2-1 in the final.

    Mark Warburton says loan signings are crucial for lower-league teams as they allow more money to be spent on clubs' youth academies

    They have not won in their last five in the league and manager Ian Murray told the Evening Times: "A win of any kind in a semi-final is huge. A win at Ibrox against Rangers in a semi-final is even bigger. 

    "It's unusual to play a semi-final at a venue which is not neutral but that's the way this cup works and it's a fantastic opportunity for us.

    Mark Warburton was delighted with the outcome of Rangers' latest AGM

    "It will no doubt be an incredibly difficult game for us, but it's incredibly difficult for them as well. There is a different pressure on them from the pressure on us.

    "It's obviously a huge advantage to Rangers being at home, but that's something we have to go and deal with and get on with it."

    Saints full-back Keith Watson faces a late test but skipper Jim Goodwin, Alan Gow and Jason Naismith will definitely play no part. 

    Peterhead await the winners in the final, the League One side having beaten Queen's Park 2-1 earlier this month.
