Rangers return to domestic action tomorrow when they face Livingston in the Scottish Premiership at Ibrox and Gers boss Steven Gerrard seems likely to make a few changes to his starting XI.

The Light Blues have a concern over left-back Borna Barisic after he limped out of the 2-0 win over Standard Liege on Thursday night in the Europa League.

Barisic was replaced by Calvin Bassey over in Belgium and the former Leicester City kid looks almost certain to start against Gary Holt’s side tomorrow.

The starting XI should remain largely the same as on Thursday night but with such a strong squad, and some key players returning from injury, there will probably a few different changes.

Allan McGregor, James Tavernier and Connor Goldson will all start against Livi but Gerrard has a decision to make over Filip Helander and Leon Balogun and which one partners Goldson.

After Helander missed out on a place in the side against Liege, Balogun is likely to get the nod again against Livi with an eye on Helander starting against Lech Poznan on Thursday.


The midfield trio is also likely to see at least one change with Steven Davis coming back into the side to join Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield.


That means Glen Kamara making way but with the amount of football the Finn has played recently, it’s probably wise to give him a chance to recharge ahead with the games coming thick and fast.

Kamara has been excellent recently but there are plenty of games to come and the former Dundee star is going to be key for Rangers in their title push.

The front three is pretty much anyone’s guess at times as Gerrard tries to keep so many talented players happy while also making sure changes don’t affect their form.

Alfredo Morelos has been one who has came in for some criticism from fans over his recent performances and the Colombian may have to make do with a place on the bench but his replacement probably isn’t who most would expect.

Rather than throwing Kemar Roofe back into the side  – and Gerrard has hinted that he won’t – then the stage is set for Cedric Itten to come in and start.

The Swiss international has gone under the radar a little since his arrival but has shown some really promising signs and with Morelos out of sorts and Roofe not quite fit then it would make sense to start him.

The other change sees Jordan Jones coming in to replace Ianis Hagi on the right, with Jones essentially being given time to show what he can do after being left out of the starting XI.
