MORTON will head to Ibrox on Saturday to play a closed doors friendly against Pedro Caixinha’s Rangers.

Ton were originally scheduled for a free weekend with the Irn Bru Cup taking centre stage. 

Jim Duffy’s outfit were knocked out of the tournament by Livingston in the first round back in August.

But after Gers’ original journey to Canada to face Benfica in the Eusebio Cup was cancelled just six days before it was set to take place, Ton stepped in to take part in the bounce game in Glasgow.

And Caixinha praised Morton for agreeing to square-off against his men, saying: “We already had everything planned [for the Canada trip] so we needed to re-plan. It was good that Morton accepted the challenge to be here with us, so at least we have more time to work on the principles we really need to work on.”

Meanwhile, Ton’s teens held Development League West league leaders Queen’s Park to a 1-1 draw last night. 

James McLennan opened the scoring for the Spiders from a spot-kick before Morton winger Scott Tiffoney struck for the hosts to grab a point for Darren Barr’s youngsters.
