Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has one more game to negotiate before the curtain comes down on his first season in the dugout – and he should use it to give some of his fringe players a chance to shine.

The Gers travel to Rugby Park this weekend on the back of six consecutive wins and will be keen to make it seven to round out the campaign.

Gerrard has already admitted that there could be some changes against Steve Clarke’ side after a bruising Old Firm clash with Celtic yesterday and guys like Glenn Middleton, Ross McCrorie and Matt Polster could be given a chance to impress.

 

McCrorie and Middleton have been constantly on the edges of the first-team this season without ever really cementing a regular place in the starting XI and 90 minutes against Kilmarnock would be a welcome chance for both.

American midfielder Polster has only made one appearance since his move from Chicago Fire in January as he works towards full fitness and a final day cameo would be another chance for fans to see what he can bring to the side.

There could even be a chance for some of the younger players in the squad to get a debut after successful seasons at reserve and under-18 level saw both young Rangers sides lift their respective league titles.
