Rangers’ predicted XI to face Braga

Rangers may be 12 points behind their Old Firm rivals in the race for the title but they do have a wonderful chance of reaching the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Gers hold a one-goal advantage as they head to the Estadio Municipal to face Braga on Wednesday evening.

Steven Gerrard’s men sealed a remarkable comeback in the first leg, coming from two goals down to win the opening tie 3-2.

However, despite that, Gerrard has claimed that his side won’t sit back and suffer as they look to protect their slender advantage.

But who will start for Rangers this evening? Here’s what we’re predicting at FFC.

Changes are expected for the Ibrox side tonight and one of them will definitely be enforced.

Alfredo Morelos’ yellow card in the first leg means he’s suspended for the second tie in Portugal this evening so Florian Kamberi is set for a first Rangers start.

He came off the bench last Sunday and was involved in two goals before stating that he was ready to do the dirty work in midweek if required.

A further change comes in defence. There were initial fears that Croatian defender Borna Barisic wouldn’t be fit after missing the 2-2 draw with St Johnstone.

However, he has travelled with the squad and could replace Andy Halliday. He was brought off at half-time last weekend so may not be in Gerrard’s good books.

Should Halliday be dropped?

The rest of the side has a rather familiar look to it, although there are two changes to the midfield that started in the first leg. Joe Aribo starts in a holding role after netting two in his last two games while Ryan Jack is back after being suspended last week.

Ryan Kent starts on the left while Ianis Hagi is on the right. The latter was impressive against Braga at the first time of asking, scoring twice.

Meanwhile, one Rangers ace sent a MAJOR STATEMENT to Gerrard on Sunday…
