Predicted Rangers XI vs Ross County

Rangers host Ross County at Ibrox today in the Scottish Premiership as they look to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to eight matches.

The Gers won their last league match 6-1 as they thrashed Motherwell at Fir Park last weekend, with Fashion Sakala netting a hat-trick being the highlight of the scoring.

Steven Gerrard’s side managed a 1-1 draw in their Europa League clash with Brondby on Thursday, however, as Ianis Hagi’s second-half goal secured a point after he came off the bench in the second half.

Will Rangers beat Ross County?





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

We are predicting that the head coach will make four alterations to the side, with Jon McLaughlin, Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe and Ianis Hagi all coming in.

Starting between the sticks, this is a simple case of rotation. McLaughlin and Allan McGregor have shared the goalkeeping duties this season and it could be time for the former to start after two starts in a row for the latter in all competitions.

The next three changes all come in the front three. Firstly, Kent could start ahead of Sakala on the left after his impressive cameo against Brondby. We published an article explaining why the ex-Liverpool man should be unleashed against Ross County and it could give Sakala a chance to rest heading into the international break as he potentially jets away with Zambia.

On the right of the attacking trident, Hagi could be handed a place in the team. He came off the bench to score with a sublime right-footed finish against Brondby and that strike could be enough to convince Gerrard to start him. Joe Aribo started in that position against the Danes, but he could drop back into the midfield three with Steven Davis facing the chop, after a disappointing performance from the Northern Ireland international.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

Finally, Kemar Roofe could start in place of Alfredo Morelos at the tip of the attack. He has five goals in six Premiership starts this season and could slot into the team to give his Colombian teammate a rest. The former Leeds man, who scored 14 goals in 18 league starts last term, is a proven scorer at this level and could link-up with Hagi and Kent in the final third.

AND in other news, Gerrard can get Ibrox bouncing on Sunday by unleashing “phenomenal” Rangers dynamo…
