Rangers: Light Blues predicted XI for Europa League final

Rangers face the exciting prospect of competing in the UEFA Europa League final tonight as they travel away from Ibrox to compete in Seville.

Gio van Bronckhorst’s men have the chance to win major European silverware to make up for the disappointment of finishing second in the Premiership.

The Gers ended their league campaign with a 3-1 win over Hearts last weekend, with Alex Lowry, Cedric Itten and Cole McKinnon scoring the goals.

How many changes will Gio make to the team? Here is our predicted XI…

We are predicting that he will make a whopping ten alterations to the team, with Aaron Ramsey the only player surviving from the win over Hearts.

Will Rangers win the Europa League?





Most of the changes should be self-explanatory as the regular starters regain their places in the team. Allan McGregor, James Tavernier, Calvin Bassey, Ryan Jack, John Lundstram, Borna Barisic and Ryan Kent have all been regulars in the team throughout the competition and we are predicting them to all come back in.

However, there are a few positions that are up in the air heading into the match. Starting off in midfield, we are predicting that Glen Kamara will be given the nod over the likes of Steven Davis and Scott Arfield.

What nationality does Mateusz Zukowski represent?

His performance against RB Leipzig was outstanding in the semi-final and FFC published an article explaining why he can be the match-winner against Frankfurt.

Lowry scored and provided an assist at the weekend and we are backing Rangers to go with the experience of Ramsey instead of pushing the youngster further up the pitch. Scottish coach Andy Goldie previously dubbed him a “game-changer” and he may have a bright future at the club but he will have to settle for a place on the bench tonight as he is axed from the XI.

Finally, we are predicting that Joe Aribo will line up through the middle. Kemar Roofe is back from injury and available for selection but van Bronckhorst may use him as an impact substitute to come off the bench instead of risking him from the start, leaving a place for the “languid” – as dubbed by Ezri Konsa – gem to lead the line from the off.
