Rangers starting XI confirmed to face RB Leipzig in Ibrox Europa League clash

Rangers manager Gio van Bronckhorst has named his starting XI for tonight’s must-win Europa League semi-final second leg against RB Leipzig at Ibrox – and the Light Blues have had to do without Kemar Roofe once more as Joe Aribo again leads the line for the Gers.

After losing last week’s first leg 1-0 in Germany, Rangers know they need to win in 90 minutes to at least send the tie to extra time for a place in the final in Seville.

Despite adopting a more conservative formation last week against Leipzig, Rangers are likely to line up with a more familiar shape tonight against the energy drink brand.

While Ibrox will be absolutely rocking by the time the first whistle goes, there will be a minute’s silence ahead of kick-off in tribute to iconic Ibrox kitman Jimmy Bell after his sudden death earlier this week.

As Rangers continue to push for a stunning Scottish Cup and Europa League double, the Light Blues’ injury problems continue to hinder van Bronckhorst’s selection choices with Alfredo Morelos, Ianis Hagi and Fil Helander all remaining on the sidelines.

Veteran keeper Allan McGregor starts between the sticks for Rangers with a back four of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Calvin Bassey and Borna Barisic ahead of him.

In midfield, John Lundstram and Ryan Jack are reunited after Jack was benched at the weekend with Glen Kamara the third man in midfield.

Scott Wright, Ryan Kent and Joe Aribo have been handed the task of scoring the goals to fire Rangers to the final in Seville as Ibrox gets set for a huge night tonight.
