Inside Sport podcast: Scottish football analysis and the Ryder Cup

In this episode: A look back at the midweek League Cup action, and Martin Dempster offers his take on the Ryder Cup ahead of the showdown between Europe and the USA in Medinah.

There were no major upsets this week in the Scottish Communities League Cup - unless of course you consider Third Division Rangers’ convincing win over table-topping Motherwell at Ibrox a turn-up for the books.

Stuart Bathgate and Moira Gordon assess the midweek action which also saw Aberdeen, Celtic, Dundee United, Hearts, Inverness, St Mirren and St Johnstone progress to the quarter-finals. They also nail their colours to the mast with some predictions for this weekend’s SPL fixtures.
