Glasgow Rangers are back in action this afternoon as they travel to take on Dundee United at Tannadice for their first game in the Scottish Premiership since the 4-nil rout of Ross County last weekend.
Steven Gerrard’s side beat Lech Poznan in Poland to win Group D of the Europa League on Thursday night as the Ibrox boss took the opportunity to rotate his squad, so several key men are set to return to the starting XI.
The Gers hold a 13-point lead over Celtic at the top of the table and will be looking to build on their sizeable advantage when they face the Terrors, who lost at Livingston last weekend, which ended their unbeaten run of six games.
With that in mind, here is our predicted starting line-up for this afternoon’s action, which sees Gerrard ring seven changes to the side that beat Poznan in midweek.
Allan McGregor will replace Jon McLaughlin between the sticks, as he is Gerrard’s trusted man for the big occasion.
Connor Goldson is expected to continue at centre-back, although fit-again Filip Helander may push for a recall, with Leon Balogun dropping to the bench.
Borna Barisic will most likely start at left-back as usual, whilst the ever-reliable James Tavernier will replace Nathan Patterson, despite the teenage prodigy impressing in his European debut on Thursday night.
New summer recruit Bongani Zungu offered little against Lech Poznan, so switching Joe Aribo to the left of the centre circle and bringing Steven Davis back into the midfield should be a tempting option, with Scott Arfield also likely to start, having scored four goals in his past seven games in all competitions, via Transfermarkt.
Cedric Itten could be in contention to start with Alfredo Morelos still struggling for form, but the Colombia international is likely to lead the line, with Ryan Kent and Kemar Roofe slotting into place alongside him on the wings.
This means there is no room for Ianis Hagi, who will have to settle for a place on the bench.
