    "Lee Wallace and Arnold Peralta are both set to return to the side as Rangers take on East Fife in League One on Saturday.

    Wallace has been struggling with a knee injury, and Peralta was unwell after reporting back from international duty with Honduras, but players are expected to be in the squad.

    Midfielder Dean Shiels is still missing with a knee problem while Ross Perry and Chris Hegarty are still ruled out out with ankle injuries.

    Former Rangers midfielder Steven Hughes may line-up against his old club and could be joined in the East Fife side by fit-again Christian Nade.
    "

    Remember Stephen Hughes? I always thought he looked a really good prospect for us. The only problem was his build he looked physically incapable of playing football at times as he was so slight. He seems to have played for a few Scottish clubs of late and signed for East Fife in October.

    The chairman of East Fife seems to be really glad to see us:

    East Fife chairman Lee Murray plans to relish every minute of Rangers’ visit to Bayview on Saturday.

    However, while he will welcome the Ibrox club to Methil with open arms, just do not expect him to be so charitable when it comes to the matter of three points.

    Preparations for the fixture against Ally McCoist’s men have been extensive, including the costly erection of extra terracing to accommodate around 3,500 more away supporters.

    Indeed, Murray feels like he is working non-stop at the moment, although he is convinced it will all be worth it.

    The Methil club’s chief freely admits he was a boyhood Rangers fan but reassured any doubters that he will be 100% behind East Fife on Saturday.

    “I must have been asked that question a million times,” he said. “But when you get so involved in a club like East Fife and get into running everything, it gets under your skin a wee bit.

    “I’m very much rooting for East Fife this weekend and it is a privilege to have a team like Rangers coming to Bayview.

    “The organisation for this game has been unbelievable and it will continue right up until Saturday afternoon but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    “We’ll have something like 4,700 fans at the game and I’m sure that’s the biggest crowd New Bayview has ever seen, so achieving that in itself is going to be a feat.

    “The terracing is looking good now but getting the game on safely and making sure everyone is happy is going to be a feat in itself but hopefully it’s something everybody will be proud of.

    “It’s great for the local area to have a game like this on and I hope everybody enjoys it.”

    The local businessman was initially appointed the club’s managing director as part of wholesale changes at Bayview in June which saw team boss Billy Brown replaced by new manager Willie Aitchison.

    Murray stepped into the boardroom hotseat to try to steady the ship in the summer and he feels East Fife are now moving in the right direction following a shaky start on the pitch.

    However, to say things have been eventful since agreeing to be chairman would be an understatement.

    “It’s been time-consuming, I’ll say that,” Murray said. “It’s been absolutely fascinating being involved in football and sometimes there will be people coming on the phone that you would never have dreamed of speaking to.

    “But it has been brilliant and I’m really enjoying being chairman of my local club
    .”

    Jon Daly scored a hat-trick as Rangers extended their sequence of Scottish League One wins to 10 with victory against East Fife at Bayview.
    The visitors had the ball in the net in the first half but a foul on goalkeeper Greg Paterson meant no goal was awarded.
    However, Gary Thom's own goal put Rangers ahead early in the second half.
    And two headers followed by a strike from Daly secured a comfortable win for the league leaders.
    Ally McCoist's side are 11 points clear of both Ayr United and Dunfermline.
    Bilel Mohsni and Nicky Clark threatened for Rangers and the Fifers' captain Craig Johnstone also came close before Ian Black had a goal disallowed for Daly's foul on Paterson.
    Thom's attempted clearance diverted Lee Wallace's cross into the net early in the second half and from there Rangers took control.
    Daly met Arnold Peralta's cross to nod Rangers' second and Clark set up the striker's second goal.
    And Lewis Macleod cut the ball back for Daly to net again midway through the second half.
    Rangers goalkeeper Cammy Bell denied Scott McBride a late consolation with an impressive save.
