Queens Vs Rangers

Queen of the South prepare for their home game against Glasgow giants Rangers in the quarter-finals of the Ramsdens Cup.

Queens ready for Rangers

It is a big night for Queen of the South as they play Rangers at Palmerston Park in the quarter final of the Ramsdens Cup.

Queen of the South are the Cup holders and they beat Rangers on the way to the final last season, in a dramatic penalty shootout.

Extra security is in place to ensure it is a good night on and off the pitch for the 7000 fans.

Kim Inglis reports:

Police advise fans to travel early

Police Scotland are advising fans travelling to tonight's Queen of the South game against Rangers to travel early.

"High numbers of supporters are expected to attend the match so there will be increased levels of traffic and pedestrians in the area.

"If going to the game travel early to avoid the congestion and please note that no parking cones will be in place, so park in areas further from the ground.

"Officers will be policing the event to ensure everyone’s safety and we ask all fans behave sensibly and consider others, including local residents, before, during and after the match. We hope everyone enjoys the big game."

Queen of the South welcome Rangers to Palmerston Park tonight for the quarter-final of the Ramsdens Cup.

The Doonhamers knocked the Glasgow giants out of the cup at the same stage last year after a dramatic penalty shoot-out at Ibrox.

Jim McIntyre's side are hoping to get back to winning ways after their home defeat to Raith Rovers, but Ally McCoist's men will be coming to Dumfries looking for revenge.

More than 6,000 tickets have already been sold, but there are still some seats left for Queen of the South fans.

Tickets for the game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, can be bought at Palmerston Park until 3pm today.
