Rangers predicted XI as Gers face Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville Europa League final

Rangers head to Seville this week as the Ibrox stars look to make history in the club’s 150th year by winning the Europa League final – and Gers boss Gio van Bronckhorst faces some massive decisions over his starting XI against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The selection at Tynecastle appeared to hint strongly at how Rangers would line up in Seville against the Germans – although there are still one or two injury concerns for Gio van Bronckhorst to clear up before he can make a definitive decision.

However, the other names on the teamsheet seem to be set in stone as Rangers eye a second European trophy, fifty years after the Barcelona Bears won the first.

Here’s how we think Rangers will line up in the Europa League final in Seville against Eintracht Frankfurt:

Allan McGregor will make what could be his last appearance for Rangers in Seville as the veteran turns out in his 104th European game for the Gers.

Ahead of him James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Calvin Bassey and Borna Barisic will make up the back four – with John Lundstram potentially dropping back to go with three in the middle.

Ryan Jack is one of the aforementioned injury worries for Gio but, if fit, the Scotland international seems likely to come straight into the starting XI; however, if he doesn’t Aaron Ramsey is likely to start with Glen Kamara rounding off the Gers’ midfield.

With no Morelos and likely no Roofe, Joe Aribo is likely to be given the nod to lead the line with Scott Wright and Ryan Kent supporting the Nigerian.
