Rangers fans have reacted after Steven Gerrard named his starting XI for tonight’s Scottish Premiership clash against St Mirren at Ibrox.
It’s the Gers’ second competitive fixture since the winter break and first league game since the momentum-shifting victory at Parkhead on 29th December.
There was some rustiness on display in Friday night’s 2-0 win over Stranraer, and as expected, the manager has made multiple changes to his lineup for this one.
Allan McGregor has returned between the sticks, with Wes Foderingham dropping down to the bench.
Meanwhile, there are multiple changes to the back four.
Connor Goldson and Borna Barisic return to replace George Edmundson and Andy Halliday respectively, while Nathan Patterson drops to the bench and Jon Flanagan returns at right-back.
In midfield, Steven Davis and Ryan Jack retain their places and are joined by Glen Kamara, who replaces Scott Arfield.
At the top end of the pitch, there’s just one alteration, with Ryan Kent coming in to replace Jordan Jones.
Jermain Defoe continues to lead the line with Alfredo Morelos serving a suspension.
Will this team be strong enough to secure three points against the Buddies?
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:

Why choose Flanagan who offers nothing going forward in a game where we will be constantly attacking
