The Irn-Bru Cup has paired Stenhousemuir with a trip to either Rangers or Stirling University.

Brown Ferguson’s Warriors were the final side out of the draw held today (Thursday) at Hampden Park, and were given an away trip.

The ties are scheduled for August 16 or 17 and the Warriors will now be keen observers when Rangers’ under-20s take on the Lowland league side.

They could also gain an insight to one of their potential opponents as Stirling Uni are scheduled to meet East Stirlingshire next week.

The Shire are now out of the competition but their conquerors Montrose were also drawn away, and they head to Turriff United.

The full draw is:
