Steven Gerrard is still without several key players and Kemar Roofe remains a doubt, but all the other international Gers have reported back fit and healthy.

There are no Premiership fixtures on Sky Sports this weekend, but RangersTV have the rights to live coverage of the Gers match around the world (excluding England).

Bears are accustomed to the popular Emma Dodds hosting on the club’s channel and whenever she’s unavailable, Becky Ives tends to step in.

However, a new host has been named for Saturday’s match.

Kate Mason, formerly of Sky Sports, will be fronting the coverage, which is due to commence at 2:30pm.

Mason will be joined in the studio by Alex Rae and Shelley Kerr, while Clive Tyldesley will be calling the action.

Assisting Tyldesley in the commentary box will be former Rangers player and B team coach, and current Kelty Hearts manager, Kevin Thomson.

The match is available for the usual PPV price of £9.99 but fans in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will need to register a new RangersTV account to access the stream.
