Confirmed Rangers line-up v Partick Thistle: 29-year-old axed

By Harvey Byrne

Manager Pedro Caixinha has decided to make one change to his Rangers team which takes on Partick Thistle in the Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

The 46-year-old boss has decided to bring Barrie McKay into his starting line-up after last weekend’s crucial 3-0 win over Aberdeen.

The changes have seen 29-year-old Joe Garner axed to the bench following his less than impressive performance against the Dons.

Rangers confirmed their line-up via their official Twitter account prior to the 3.00pm kick-off at Ibrox.

Rangers have picked up just two victories in their last five league encounters and they will be keen to pick up a consecutive win at this late stage of the Premiership campaign.

The Glasgow giants are currently nine points away from the second placed Dons with six matches of the season left and the best they can hope for this season is a runners-up finish.

Meanwhile, Partick are unbeaten in five fixtures with two victories and three draws coming from their last five outings and the sixth placed side will provide a stern test for Caixinha’s men on Saturday afternoon.
