Fan favourite out, summer signing in: This Rangers XI will rip Aberdeen apart
Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty must make one change to his starting XI when his side face Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday if he wants to field his strongest side.
Fan favourite Kenny Miller should make way for Alfredo Morelos – if the Colombian overcomes a hip injury which ruled him out of the 3-0 win over the Dons earlier in the week.
Murty took a big gamble by switching to a midfield diamond going into the clash with Derek McInnes’ side but it paid off fantastically for the Light Blues as they eased to a comfortable win.
The temporary Ibrox boss must stick with the shape which brought such a convincing performance against Aberdeen, even if it’s almost certain their opponents will be better prepared for it.
Wes Foderingham is almost certain to start in goal and will have been delighted to pick up a clean sheet in midweek.

James Tavernier and Declan John should start in the full-back spots as both players are likely to again be a big part in Rangers’ attacking play in the absence of any wingers.
Bruno Alves and Danny Wilson both impressed in the win over Aberdeen – and with Ross McCrorie ahead of them again – are the obvious choice in central defence for Murty.
Graham Dorrans’ injury means Jason Holt and Ryan Jack will again be tasked with doing Carlos Pena’s defensive work as the Mexican is given freedom to find space behind defenders.
If Morelos recovers from a hip injury in time then the Colombian striker should start beside Josh Windass in attack after Windass had one of his best games in a Rangers jersey since his move from Accrington almost 18 months ago.
In the latest Rangers news, Murty has had his say on Wednesday’s game against the Dons.
