Rangers travel to West Lothian on Sunday to take on Livingston and we’ve put together a Predicted XI for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s first league match in charge.
The champions and league leaders are understrength with Filip Helander, Leon Balogun and Kemar Roofe all sidelined.
However, the hosts are arguably worse off, with a number of influential players ruled out due to suspension, injuries and loan clauses.
GvB has injected fresh life into the squad since his arrival and it’s unlikely that he’ll make too many changes to the side that carried out his game plan excellently against Sparta Prague on Thursday night.
Allan McGregor is likely to keep his place in goal after returning to form against the Czechs, while James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and Borna Barisic should all keep their spots in defence.
However, despite deputising well there against Sparta, Calvin Bassey is likely to make way for Jack Simpson at centre-back.
In midfield, there could be another change, with Steven Davis dropping out for a rest to be replaced by the powerful John Lundstram, who would partner Glen Kamara.
Further upfield, the manager could well stick with what worked on Thursday night by retaining Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi in wide roles and deploying Joe Aribo centrally behind main striker Alfredo Morelos.
