We’re tipping Scott Wright to come in from the start for Rangers against Kilmarnock after his Hampden heroics had Michael Beale hinting at changes for the trip to Rugby Park.

The injury-ravaged Gers squad managed to eke out a 2-1 victory in extra time against the Dons on a churned up Hampden park and the physical exertion is bound to have taken its toll.

Speaking ahead of the game, the Rangers manager claimed that there are a few players knocking on the door as the club prepares to rotate over the next few matches [Rangers].

Scott Wright, whose twisting, turning run down the left set up Kemar Roofe’s winner at the national stadium, is surely one of the first names on that list.

Also selected for press duties ahead of the game – not a sure fire sign but often a telling one – the winger has found chances limited since Michael Beale came into Rangers and he could be handed one against Kilmarnock.

We’re backing Allan McGregor to start in goal after his vote of confidence from Michael Beale after the Aberdeen game, with a back four of Tavernier, Goldson, Davies and Barisic.

We then expect Glen Kamara to come into midfield, with John Lundstram playing alongside him and Scott Arfield playing in front of them.

Then we’re backing Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos and Scott Wright to complete the Rangers front three in the Premiership clash with Kilmarnock.

This XI should have more than enough to see off Kilmarnock as the Gers look to maintain their good form in the Premiership and turn up the heat on Celtic.
