Rangers face Kilmarnock on Saturday, in what is bound to be a testing atmosphere at Ibrox.

Firstly, deja vu at Hibernian, before another home defeat to Aberdeen. This time, depriving the club of a trip to Hampden.

Therefore, a reaction will be expected at the weekend, from both the players and the manager.

Between those two fixtures, Gerrard only made one change to his team. Andy Halliday dropped out and Borna Barisic returned from illness, to face the Dons.

Surely more of a shake-up is on the cards this week, though.

Firstly, Ross McCrorie must return not only to the squad, but to the starting lineup. His domestic record is sensational this season.

The 20-year-old homegrown talent is adored by the fans for the passion and tenacity he shows in midfield. He could come in for Ryan Jack.

Another fan favourite is surely in line for a recall, too. Nikola Katic has had to watch on recently, but after a shaky defensive display on Tuesday, both Connor Goldson and Joe Worrall are at risk of the chop.

Elsewhere, Barisic continues to flatter to deceive at left-back. It would be a surprise if he kept Halliday out, this time around.

Scott Arfield also struggled in midweek. Therefore, Steven Davis could return to central midfield as he seeks to prove he isn’t over the hill just yet.

After rejoining training weeks ago, surely Eros Grezda will return to the bench. A place in the dugout and a debut later in the game, is also on the cards for Matt Polster.
