Murty outcast starts in two changes to 4-2-3-1: Rangers best possible XI v Hearts
Rangers manager Graeme Murty must make two changes to his side when they face Hearts on Saturday if he wants to field his strongest XI against the Jambos.
Jason Holt and Murty outcast Bruno Alves must come back into the side for Greg Docherty and David Bates as the Light Blues look to close the gap on Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic to six points.
Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham should continue in goal behind a back four of James Tavernier, Alves, Russell Martin and Declan John.
Alves’ experience alongside Martin should help the Gers tighten up and avoid the cheap goals they have been conceding in recent weeks and Murty must decide to welcome him back into the 4-2-3-1 formation after freezing him out in favour of domestic players.
Ahead of them, Holt and Sean Goss must be paired up again in central midfield after looking impressive together before Holt’s suspension.
On-loan QPR midfielder Goss has quickly established himself as a regular starter after a bright start to his spell at Ibrox.
The Gers’ front four of Daniel Candeias, Jamie Murphy, Josh Windass and Alfredo Morelos have been in fantastic form in recent weeks and should provide a major threat to Craig Levein’s side.
With the likes of Kenny Miller and Jason Cummings likely to be on the bench, the Gers have no shortage of firepower at their disposal.
