Neil Alexander wants three away points when Rangers travel to Stirling Albion on Saturday

Neil Alexander is determined to see Rangers secure an elusive first away win of the season in the Irn-Bru Third Division when they take on Stirling Albion on Saturday.

The goalkeeper knows their form on the road has not been good enough after scraping past Forres Mechanics in the William Hill Scottish Cup last week, having drawn all their away league games so far.

Rangers travel to Forthbank Stadium to face the league's bottom side and Alexander is keen to take advantage of the opportunity to make their mark away from Ibrox.

He said: "The league is our priority this year and we need to start picking up three points away from home.

"Our form away from home is not good enough at the minute but we are working hard on the training ground to rectify that and hopefully come Saturday we can put it right with three points."

Promotion may be the number-one aim this season but Rangers will also be hoping for a run in the cup competitions in a bid to prove they can still compete with the top teams in the country.

The Light Blues were drawn against Inverness in the fourth round of the Scottish Communities League Cup at Hampden on Thursday, with the Highlanders set to travel to Glasgow at the end of the month.

Alexander said: "It's a great draw for us. A home draw was really important.

"Inverness is going to be a tough, tough game. Every time we've played them in the past, they've always given us a really good game.

"It's always been close. I don't expect anything different this time."
