Rangers play on Wednesday evening, where three points would put Steven Gerrard’s side on the brink of winning the title.
The Gers take on fifth-placed Livingston in the Scottish Premiership, as they look to take another step towards winning the SPFL title for the first time in 10 years.
The ‘Gers are fresh from progressing in the Europa League with a 5-2 win against Royal Antwerp to continue their impressive unbeaten run in all competitions, whereas Livingston suffered a 1-0 defeat against St Johnstone in the Scottish League Cup final last time out.
Although Gerrard may be tempted to rotate his side on Wednesday evening, he should perhaps go with his strongest side to ensure that they earn the three points at Ibrox and edge closer to their first title in 10 years.
Here’s how Football FanCast feels the English manager will set his side up on Wednesday, with two changes from the team that started against Antwerp in midweek…
Allan McGregor unsurprisingly keeps his place in goal, with him having been superb so far this season, keeping 14 clean sheets in 21 Premiership appearances.
There’s one change in the defence, as Nathan Patterson warrants a start after his goal from the bench against Antwerp, with Leon Balogun looking uncomfortable in that position throughout the first half, so he drops to the bench, with the rest of the defence staying the same.
There’s one change in midfield, as Steven Davis drops out with new signing Scott Wright handed his first start for the club, having been limited to just substitute appearances so far.
Considering Livingston’s poor recent form, Gerrard’s side should attack from the start, and having the attack-minded Wright in midfield alongside Joe Aribo and Glenn Kamara could prove to be too much for David Martindale’s side.
Finally, the front three stays the same, with Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi and Alfredo Morelos having all been superb in recent fixtures.
