The Gretna striker Fabian Yantorno is determined to enjoy today's Premier League clash with Rangers.

The Uruguayan, who has performed well this season, is relishing walking out on the Ibrox turf to face a team who have qualified for the Champions League.

He said: "I know Rangers are a very big team and I've never been there before so I'm really looking forward to it. To play against Rangers is very important for me and for Gretna and we are all looking forward to it."

Yantorno was a key player in Gretna's 3-1 CIS Insurance Cup second-round defeat of Cowdenbeath on Tuesday night.

He set up Craig Barr's 51st-minute goal from a free-kick and scored himself five minutes from time. Allan Jenkins netted the final goal. The win was Gretna's first of the season.

Gretna still have three players on the injury list. Striker James Grady is recovering from an hernia operation and midfielder Ryan McGuffie and defender Martin Canning are recovering from knee injuries.

Kenny Deuchar has joined St Johnstone on loan, but Mickael Buscher and Evan Horwood could make their Gretna debuts after arriving from Nice and Sheffield United this week.
