Stevie Smith: Ineligible for Ramsden Cup opener
New Rangers' signings Stevie Smith, Ricky Foster and Arnold Peralta will not be available to Rangers manager Ally McCoist for Saturday's Ramsdens Cup opener against Albion Rovers.
The Ibrox club are unable to register new players until September 1 as a result of a transfer embargo but can select two trialists in their game with the Coatbridge side, which is being staged at Livingston.
Scottish Professional Football League rules mean only players transferring from Scottish clubs can play as trialists, ruling out former Portland Timbers defender Smith, ex-Bristol City man Foster and Honduras international Peralta.
Defender Ross Perry and midfielder Kyle Hutton join the trio on the sidelines due to knee injuries.
