Rangers manager Ally McCoist has been boosted by the news that Lee McCulloch has been passed fit for the Scottish Cup tie at Falkirk, live on Sky Sports. The club captain has recovered from the knock he picked up in Monday's League One success at Arbroath but Kyle Hutton is out with a broken leg incurred on U20s duty. Striker Dean Shiels could come into contention for Saturday's game and make his first appearance since August following a knee injury. McCoist is expecting another tough test at a ground where Rangers have had their problems in recent seasons. "I'm already reading comments after Falkirk's good victory at the weekend - quite rightly - from one or two of their lads," he said. "They knocked us out of the League Cup a couple of seasons ago and are doing well in the league just now. "They are looking forward to the Rangers game and they're looking to put one over on us again. You'd absolutely expect them to say that. "If there was ever any doubt about how up for the game Falkirk are, you just have to look at their quotes in the newspapers. They're full of confidence. "We've had them watched and they beat Livingston 4-1 recently, so it's a tough game for us." Falkirk manager Gary Holt can call on loan signing Mark Millar after Dundee United agreed to their request. Sky Sports This game will be a little tougher than the ones we have played of late. I'm hoping we can keep up our winning ways. Good to see Dean Shiels back in the squad he's been pretty unlucky with all the injuries. Provisional Rangers squad: Bell, Wallace, McCulloch, Faure, Mohsni , Macleod, Aird, Black, Crawford, Law, Daly, Clark, Peralta, Simonsen, Smith, Cribari, Templeton, Shiels.
