Rangers confirmed line-up v St. Johnstone: Murty makes two changes

By Danny Wright

Rangers have made two changes to their line-up to face St. Johnstone at Ibrox on Wednesday night.

Caretaker manager Graeme Murty has decided to bring Jason Holt back into the side in place of Andy Halliday and Clint Hill returns from injury to replace Danny Wilson after their dismal 2-1 loss to Inverness on Friday.

The defeat at Inverness saw the Light Blues drop nine points behind second-placed Aberdeen after they suffered a second consecutive defeat.

Murty is yet to win a league game in charge of the Ibrox club after winning his first game in charge against Greenock Morton in a Scottish Cup tie.

However the Dons suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to the hands of Hamilton, who were bottom of the Scottish Premiership before the game, meaning the Gers have a chance of closing the gap on their league rivals.

Rangers will still remain some way behind Old Firm rivals Celtic, who are 33 points clear during their unbeaten campaign.

Despite their recent troubles, Rangers will be boosted by their brilliant home form at Ibrox this season and have only lost one of their 19 games there this season.

St. Johnstone have won three of their last five games and won’t be the easiest of guests as they have won all three of their last away games.

A victory for Tommy Wright’s side could see them move just three points behind the Light Blues and a European place for the Glasgow club could come under threat.

In other Rangers news, a 46-year-old has become the new favourite to become the new manager at Ibrox.
