Can I use old vegetables in soup (not stock)?

I've got some really limp carrots and celery hanging out in my fridge. If I use them as part of the veg base for my soup will they be gross and rubbery, or saved by souping? I know people use scraps for stock, but this would be to stay in, not be strained out....
