Rangers take on FC Midtjylland on Thursday evening, in the return leg of their Third Round Europa League Qualifying tie.

However, Midtjylland won away from home in the Superliga on Sunday and will be coming to Glasgow intent on causing an upset.
Therefore, the manager took the chance to caution his players against complacency after their hammering of Hibernian on Sunday [RangersTV].
Given the good form the Gers have shown recently, it’s unlikely that there will be major changes to the team.
Especially, as the upcoming League Cup clash against East Fife should offer an opportunity to rotate.
Allan McGregor will continue between the sticks, while the back four should remain unchanged.
The central midfield trio of Davis, Jack and Aribo is likely to remain untouched, too, after all three players were praised by their manager on Sunday.

At the top end of the pitch, there could be one or two changes, though. Jermain Defoe admitted after the Hibs game that he needs to be managed, and he will probably make way for Alfredo Morelos.
Elsewhere, despite struggling a little in Denmark, Scott Arfield is also likely to return after getting a much-needed rest at the weekend. Should he come back, it’ll most likely be for either Sheyi Ojo or Jordan Jones. Whoever drops out will then offer pace and trickery from the bench if required.
