Rangers fans have responded on social media following the announcement of the Gers team for the third-round Europa League qualifier against Willem II.
Steven Gerrard’s side are two wins away from the group stages but face a big test against an in-form opponent in Tilburg.
The hosts have started the season strongly and they hammered Heracles Almelo 4-0 at the Koning Willem II Stadion on Sunday.
Rangers had a less positive weekend, drawing 2-2 with Hibernian, and key players like Joe Aribo, Kemar Roofe and Ryan Jack are still missing through injury.
Perhaps due to a lack of alternative options as much as anything else, Gerrard has selected almost exactly the same team that took to the pitch at Easter Road.
As predicted, Allan McGregor comes in for Jon McLaughlin in goal, but the Gers are unchanged elsewhere.
James Tavernier and Borna Barisic occupy the full-back berths with Connor Goldson and Filip Helander making up the centre-back partnership.
In midfield, the trio of Steven Davis, Glen Kamara and Scott Arfield retain their places, while Ianis Hagi and Ryan Kent have been charged with providing support to central striker, Alfredo Morelos.
McLaughlin, Calvin Bassey, Leon Balogun, Nathan Patterson, Jordan Jones, Jermain Defoe and Cedric Itten have all been named on the bench.
Will this side be strong enough to see Rangers through to the final qualifying round?
Here’s a selection of reactions from social media:
No midfielders on the bench 🙈

A couple of injuries and the squad is looking very thin, and predictable. Regardless of what some say, qualification tonight is essential. Come on Rangers 🇬🇧

I’m shocked balogon not in team! After Sunday shambles and this teams pace I think this could be a misty but hope I’m wrong! Good luck rangers

Decent starting 11 but need to change formation if kamara arfield or Davis injured. Surely barjonas should be in the bench to balance it up a bit
