Rangers are through to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup after a dominant win over Falkirk at Ibrox on Sunday.
The victory sets up a mouth watering clash against Celtic at Hampden, with whoever triumphs likely to be red hot favourites to lift the trophy in May.
Jason Cummings scored a superb hat-trick to secure the victory, delighting supporters who are increasingly hopeful of winning silverware this season given their attacking form. Graeme Murty’s side have now scored 23 goals in their last six matches, all of which they’ve won.
Plaudits too went to the Gers defence, with fans delighted to see the return of Bruno Alves after an extended period out due to injury.
The veteran stopper is still getting up to full match fitness but some fans have seen enough to be convinced that he should start in next week’s massive derby against Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
Is he the right man to partner either David Bates or Russell Martin?
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Bruno alves is the best defender at the club! Has to start next Sunday imo

It was brilliant to see Bruno Alves. Jason Cummings and Alfredo Morelos get the whole game today 😁😁

Alves and Martin for the Celtic match. Bates just not good enough. Docherty is the Duracell man, great engine on him. Thought Halliday was solid throughout. Tav and Candeias have a great understanding.

Bates has done nothing wrong but I have to say I’d start with Alves and Martin next week.
I just think that Alves is physically better equipped to handle Demble in the air.
But i would complain if young Bates got the call.
Left Back is my concern. 🙈

Alves starts for me next week. & hopefully one of the 2 left backs will be playing too.

Alves starts ahead of Martin for me next week

Martin and Alves at the back for me next week

Good performance today. I hope Alves keeps his place next week. It'll be a tough decision who to play up front between Cummings and Morelos, I'd go for Alfredo because of his hold up play but both guys deserve to start
