Balogun and Wright start, Kent rested: Rangers Predicted XI vs Dundee

Glasgow Rangers will be hoping to extend their perfect home record when they return to Scottish Premiership action against Dundee United on Sunday.

Scott Wright could make his first start for Steven Gerrard’s side since joining the club in January when Rangers face Dundee.

What's YOUR PREDICTION for Rangers vs Dundee?

Gers win!

Gers win!

It'll be a draw...

It'll be a draw...

Dundee win...

Dundee win...

Rangers currently sit 15 points clear of Celtic at the top of the table and will be wanting to maintain their unbeaten run of 13 games when they welcome Micky Mellon’s side to Ibrox.

But Gerrard will have to secure a victory without at least two of his star men as James Tavernier and Kemar Roofe have been ruled out due to injury.

Here’s how Football FanCast predicts they will line up for this afternoon.

Allan McGregor should resume his usual place in goal, with Leon Balogun recalled beside Connor Goldson after replacing Tavernier at right-back in the first half against Royal Antwerp in the Europa League. Borna Barisic is also a given while Gerrard will be left with no other choice than to start Filip Helander alongside the Croatian.

With Scott Arfield having only recently recovered from injury, it would make sense if he is rested for today’s game against the Tangerines and is instead named on the bench, leaving Steven Davis to retain his place in the midfield.

How much did Rangers pay to sign Tore Andre Flo from Chelsea?

That would see Ryan Jack come in for Glen Kamara, with Ianis Hagi returning in place of Arfield.

In Roofe’s absence, Alfredo Morelos will also likely keep his spot, too. Joe Aribo is an obvious choice after his performance against Ross County, while there may even be a place for Wright, who is itching to make his first start for the club.

With Ryan Kent suffering with a minor injury, the stage is arguably set for the former Aberdeen star to stake his claim for a spot in Gerrard’s starting XI.
