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.

Defender Ross Perry and midfielder Kyle Hutton join the trio on the sidelines due to knee injuries.
