FORMER Rangers captain Barry Ferguson could be set to lead his Clyde team back to Ibrox in the Petrofac Training Cup.

Clyde have been rewarded for their first-round win over Ayr with a trip to face the winners of the 5 August clash between Rangers and Hibernian.

That could see the Glasgow club’s former skipper return to his old stomping ground five years since he last played there.

Hearts, who defeated Annan Athletic in the first round, have been handed a trip to nearby Livingston. That tie will also witness a reunion of sorts with the former Tynecastle manager John McGlynn facing the club that sacked him in February 2013. Hearts are now managed by Robbie Neilson, a player who McGlynn coached as a youth.

Elsewhere in the draw, the winners of the Fife derby between Dunfermline and Raith Rovers will face another intriguing tie at home to Falkirk.

Highland League champions Brora Rangers received a home tie against East Fife following their victory over Stenhousemuir.

Morton face Berwick Rangers at home, Stranraer host Albion Rovers, Peterhead go to Brechin and Alloa face Stirling Albion.
