Ahead of Rangers’ important cinch Premiership clash against Dundee at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, we’ve put together a Gers Predicted XI.
The champions carry a four-point lead at the top of the table and plenty of momentum into this one, given that they’ve won all of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first three matches in charge.
The opposition will also be full of confidence, though. When the two sides met earlier in the season the Dee were bottom of the table but they’re now up to ninth after winning three of their last four matches.
Therefore, GvB certainly won’t be taking the visitors lightly and is expected to select a very strong team.
Allan McGregor is likely to keep his place in goal, while the back four of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Calvin Bassey and Borna Barisic should continue.
There could be a change in midfield, with Scott Arfield coming back into the side in place of Steven Davis to join Glen Kamara.
More changes could be made further up the pitch, too.
Ryan Kent and Joe Aribo are likely to keep their spots, but Fashion Sakala or Scott Wright could come in for Ianis Hagi on the right to offer the hosts more pace and natural width, while Kemar Roofe could start ahead of Alfredo Morelos up top after coming off the bench to score the winner from the spot against Hibernian in midweek.
