Rangers return to Premiership action on Sunday afternoon as they take on Hibernian at Ibrox, in the first of five league games between now and the end of the season, with Steven Gerrard’s side still in with a chance of finishing unbeaten.
The Light Blues have already secured the Premiership title this season but will be desperate to match the record achieved by Brendan Rodgers with their Old Firm rivals in 2016/17.
Hibernian currently sit third in the Premiership after an impressive campaign and Jack Ross’ side will be looking to cause an upset at Ibrox, although their indifferent recent form, as well as Rangers’ superb home record, marks out Gerrard’s side as strong favourites.
Here’s how we think the 40-year-old manager will line his side up against Hibs, with six changes from the side that started against Cove Rangers last time out…
Fresh from his recent contract extension, Allan McGregor returns in goal after being rested against Cove Rangers, and he replaces Jon McLaughlin.
There is just one change in defence, as Borna Barisic is selected at left-back despite Calvin Bassey’s impressive cameo last time out, as the Croatian has undoubtedly been one of Gerrard’s best performers this season.
In midfield, Scott Arfield’s poor recent form sees him drop to the bench, with Joe Aribo returning to the side after he was also rested in the cup win against Cove Rangers.
Finally, it’s all change in attack, as Ianis Hagi, Alfredo Morelos and the “top class” Ryan Kent come back into the side despite some excellent displays from Scott Wright, Kemar Roofe and Jermaine Defoe last weekend, as Gerrard should go with his strongest front three for this potentially tricky fixture at Ibrox.
And, in other news… Gerrard must axe ace who “epitomises” Rangers’ style of play, he’s been awful
