A 1-0 win away to Aberdeen saw Gregory Vignal’s team book their place in the last four of the competition.

Dalgliesh said: “It is a massive thing for us to progress. It is one of the achievements that we want to go and do this year with the league not happening for us so it is something we have to look forward to and build as a team to go forward.

“It was a bit scrappy at times but a win is a win and we are through to the next round so everyone is happy.

“We just need to work on things a bit more and get on to the next round.”

It was Rangers’ third clean sheet in a row in the competition after 6-0 and 4-0 wins against Glasgow City and Forfar Farmington in the earlier rounds.

Dalgliesh added: “Keeping a clean sheet is a massive positive for us going into the next round and something that we need to keep doing week after week.

“We always thought it was going to be hard with travelling and then even although we haven’t seen them play because they are in the leagues below but we always knew what they were going to be like because we had played them previously.

“They are always tough and physical so we expected that but we got through to the next round so that is all the matters.”
