It’s been a rollercoaster season for Rovers under Ian Murray in the Scottish Championship, with their bid for a coveted place in the top four play-off spots ultimately proving unsuccessful as their challenge has fizzled out in recent weeks after a fine run between December and February when they were unbeaten in nine league fixtures.

In the cups, holders Raith reached the final of this season’s SPFL Trust Trophy after a memorable 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory at Dundee in the semi-final following a 2-2 draw after extra time.

Meanwhile, a successful run in the Scottish Cup saw Murray’s men beat non league Linlithgow Rose 2-0 away and top flight Motherwell 3-1 at home to clinch a money-spinning quarter-final tie at Rangers which they lost 3-0.
