Predicted Rangers line-up to face Hamilton Medical in the Scottish Premiership
Rangers picked up an important 3-1 win against league leaders Hearts just before the international break. Steven Gerrard’s men are now at 6th place on the table and will be aiming to climb higher when they travel to the Hope CBD Stadium this weekend.
The Gers take on Hamilton Medical and another win would do Gerrard a world of good. Hamilton have conceded a whopping 16 goals, which gives the former Liverpool captain a good chance to capitalise on.
Gerrard will be unable to field Kyle Lafferty for this game after the attacker was withdrawn from the national team due to an injury. The Irish FA will not allow the player to be fielded for a further five days.
Probable Rangers XI
Manager: Steven Gerrard
Allan McGregor (GK)
McGregor will continue in goal with the goalkeeper enjoying a stellar campaign so far.
James Tavernier (RB)
He has flourished under the mentorship of Steven Gerrard and will retain his place at right-back.
Connor Goldson (CB)
He has proven to a massive asset for the Gers this season. A great signing for the Scottish outfit.
Nikola Katic (CB)
He has been an able partner to Connor Goldson at the back. He will once again be deployed in central defence.
Borna Barisic (LB)
His marauding runs down the flank have been of great use to the Rangers.
Lassana Coulibaly (CM)
The midfielder has to be at his best in this game. His work rate and defensive contribution have been very good for the Rangers.
Ovie Ejaria (CM)
Ejaria is in fiery form at the moment and there’s no way he won’t start this game
Daniel Candeias (RW)
He is yet to hit full throttle this season but has shown his quality in glimpses. Candeias needs to show more consistency.
Scott Arfield (CAM)
Arfield was superb in the last game against Hearts and he will continue to pull the strings in advanced midfield.
Ryan Kent (LW)
Kent should return to his favoured left-wing role for this game as well. His pace and energy will be needed for this fixture.
Alfredo Morelos (ST)
The focal point and the most potent threat the Rangers currently possess. There’s every chance he’ll get on the scoresheet.
