Paul Cook admits Wigan Athletic have "a big week ahead" after seeing them lose 3-0 at Rangers in their final pre-season clash.

Prior to that contest, they will be looking to ensure their progress into the next stage of the Europa League qualifiers.

Sadiq is on loan at the former Scottish champions from Italian side, AS Roma.

Rangers have maintained their solid start to life under Steven Gerrard by seeing off Wigan Athletic in this afternoon's friendly at Ibrox Stadium.

Gerrard has already brought 10 players to Ibrox since he took over last month, and it appears as though he will go elsewhere in search of a centre-half who can play on the left side of the defence. Let us know in the comments...

At the other end, James Vaughan sent a header into the side-netting after meeting a corner from Reece James at the back post.

After bringing on Nikola Katic at the break, the Scottish hosts stepped things up and found a way through with seven minutes of the second half played.

Rangers, who replaced teenage centre-back Kyle Bradley with Katic at half-time, nearly went ahead a minute after the restart but Middleton, the 18-year-old former Norwich winger, blazed over after being set up by Morelos in a central position 15 yards out.

Rangers will be hoping to get a positive result and produce a strong display against Wigan at Ibrox this afternoon.

Following a near miss for Glenn Middleton, who fired over the bar from a promising position, Morelos was the first to react to Daniel Candeias's cross.

There was more cheer for the Rangers fans among the 28,779 crowd when Wes Foderingham, on as a half-time replacement for Jak Alnwick, saved a penalty from Will Grigg after Walker had been upended in the 77th minute.
