Stranraer gave a fine account of themselves as they took on Steven Gerrard's Rangers in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

A Scott Arfield goal just before the break and a penalty converted by Jermain Defoe midway through the second half earned Rangers a 2-0 win and a place in the next round. But Stevie Farrell's outfit can take heart from a determined display.
