Rangers travel to St Mirren for today’s early kick-off, for their third fixture of the Scottish Premiership campaign.

After two games, it’s a case of so far, so good.

Connor Goldson’s injury-time header secured a dramatic three points on the opening weekend at Kilmarnock, while last time around Hibernian were dismantled at Ibrox.

St Mirren are in decent form themselves, though. They only shipped one goal at Easter Road on the opening day, before beating Aberdeen at home a fortnight ago.

Heading into this one, there were always likely to be a few changes. After a draining 0-0 draw in Warsaw on Thursday night and with the return leg on the horizon, a few bodies were nailed on to drop out of the starting XI, granting opportunities to others.

Up front, Alfredo Morelos drops out to be replaced by Jermain Defoe. Out wide, Jordan Jones comes in to replace Sheyi Ojo.

In central midfield, as anticipated, there are some alternations, too. The trusty trio of Ryan Jack, Steven Davis and Joe Aribo is split up with the Northern Ireland skipper dropping to the bench to be replaced by Glen Kamara.

There are also two changes to the back four. Filip Helander comes in to make his Scottish Premiership debut, while Borna Barisic gets a surprise start at left-back.

Will that be a strong enough side to make it three wins from three?
