Rangers return to domestic action on Sunday when they face St. Mirren and Gers boss Steven Gerrard is sure to have a few selection problems to ponder before he picks his starting XI.

With the clash against Jim Goodwin’s side sandwiched between the two legs of the Europa League playoff with Legia Warsaw, Gerrard’s side has plenty to keep them busy over the coming week.

It’s unlikely that Gerrard will make ten changes to his side for the third game in a row but there will likely be some tinkering for Sunday’s game.

The likes of Filip Helander, Brandon Barker and Andy King could make their first league appearances since arriving while it wouldn’t come as a big surprise to see some rotation in midfield with an eye on the Legia clash.


Rangers can’t afford to be too confident ahead of facing the Buddies though, after Goodwin’s side surprised Aberdeen in their last league outing to pick up a deserved three points.

Legia – and the following weekend’s clash with Celtic – will undoubtedly have a part to play in Gerrard’s selection though so there will be opportunities for some players to potentially play their way into those two games.


Here’s how we think Steven Gerrard’s side will line up against St. Mirren:

GK – Allan McGregor

RB – James Tavernier

CB – Filip Helander

CB – Niko Katic

LB – Jon Flanagan

CM – Andy King

CM – Ryan Jack
