Glen Kamara is surely set to return to action for Rangers in their Premiership clash with Aberdeen at Ibrox.
The outstanding Finland international missed the Europa League win over Brondby last week due to suspension before watching on from the bench as the Gers came from behind to defeat St Mirren in Paisley on Sunday.
It was the first time this season that he didn’t start a match he was available for.
In fact, such is the 25-year-old’s importance and consistency, he’s rarely had a spell out of the XI since signing from Dundee in January 2019.
Aberdeen sit eighth ahead of their trip to Ibrox and they will be understrength due to an injury crisis.
However, they beat Hibernian at the weekend and Rangers can’t afford to take them lightly.
With that in mind, Kamara – who signed a new contract last month – is surely set to return to the side.
Gerrard went with a midfield three of John Lundstram, Steven Davis and Joe Aribo against St Mirren and all three players have produced strong performances recently.
Lundstram’s form ensures that the manager can finally rest Davis when required without fearing a lack of control in the middle of the park, though, and the Northern Irish veteran could make way for Kamara for this one.
A midfield trio of Lundstram, Kamara and Aribo has a good blend of solidity, power and attacking threat and they should be able to boss the visitors.
International duty looms for the former Arsenal starlet, but expect him to play a substantial role for the Gers across the next four matches before he heads off to represent Finland in their final two World Cup Qualifiers.
