Rangers Predicted XI to face Hibernian in top-of-the-table clash

Ahead of Rangers’ top-of-the-table Premiership clash against Hibernian at Ibrox on Sunday, we’ve put together a Gers Predicted XI.

Steven Gerrard’s side are looking to bounce back from an extremely disappointing defeat to Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic on Thursday night but face a tough task against a Hibs side who are just a point behind them in the Premiership table and who remain unbeaten in the competition.

Filip Helander, Ryan Jack and Ryan Kent will all miss the game through injury, while Nnamdi Ofoborh remains sidelined by a suspected heart problem.

Gerrard says there’s a chance that he’ll have both Connor Goldson and Juninho Bacuna available, though, despite the former missing the Sparta clash and the latter being forced off before the interval in Prague.

Allan McGregor is likely to continue in goal after pulling off several impressive stops against Sparta, but there may be two changes to the back four.

James Tavernier and Borna Barisic could continue as the full-backs, but Goldson and Jack Simpson could come in for Leon Balogun and Calvin Bassey at centre-back.

Bassey may be protected after struggling in a relatively unfamiliar position against Sparta, while 33-year-old Balogun is likely in need of a rest after starting three consecutive matches.

In midfield, Steven Davis and Glen Kamara could continue, with Joe Aribo dropping back from an inside forward role to replace Bacuna.

At the top end of the pitch, both Alfredo Morelos and Ianis Hagi are likely to return, with Fashion Sakala dropping out, while it looks set to be a fight between Kemar Roofe and Scott Wright for the final starting berth.
