Senior player axed in two changes: Rangers best possible XI v Dundee
Rangers manager Graeme Murty must make two changes to his side to face Dundee on Saturday if he wants to field his strongest XI against Neil McCann’s side.
After failing to win any of their last three games, the Gers boss must bring Ross McCrorie and Jason Cummings back into the starting XI with Bruno Alves and Josh Windass both missing out in the Light Blues’ 4-1-2-1-2 shape.
Regular number one Wes Foderingham should continue in goal behind a back four of James Tavernier, McCrorie, Russell Martin and Declan John.
Senior player Alves must be axed after failing to improve his form in recent weeks.
After using a 4-2-3-1 in recent weeks, the Light Blues should go back to the diamond midfield that served them well earlier under Murty with Greg Docherty at the base of the diamond and Graham Dorrans in the number 10 role.

Wingers Jamie Murphy and Daniel Candeias must take up their usual wide spots and look to create chances for the front two of Cummings and Alfredo Morelos.
With Windass looking likely to miss the visit of Dundee after coming off injured against Motherwell last weekend, it gives Murty an ideal chance to start Cummings and Morelos together ahead of next weekend’s Scottish Cup semi-final with Celtic.
Murty’s side really need to pick up three points and keep pace with Aberdeen in second-place if they want to have any chance of overtaking Derek McInnes’ Dons before the end of the season.
