Rangers expected 4-1-2-1-2 v Aberdeen: 23-year-old axed as fan favourite returns


Interim Rangers manager Graeme Murty is expected to make one change to his starting XI when his side face Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.

The two sides met on Wednesday night at Ibrox with the Gers running out comfortable 3-0 winners after a James Tavernier double and a goal from Carlos Pena.

After missing the win on Wednesday through injury, fan favourite Alfredo Morelos is expected – at the time of writing – to come back into the side at the expense of 23-year-old attacker Josh Windass.

Murty made a drastic tactical switch as Rangers moved to a midfield diamond and the gamble paid off as the Light Blues dominated Derek McInnes’ side and closed the gap on the Dons in the league table to three points.

The temporary boss is expected to stick with the same shape when he takes his side to Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon as he looks to grab another win and catapult the Gers into second place.

Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is expected to start between the sticks with Bruno Alves and Danny Wilson partnered in central defence.

James Tavernier is almost certain to continue at right-back with Declan John on the opposite in the continuing absence of Lee Wallace.

After his man-of-the-match performance on Wednesday, Ross McCrorie should start as the holding midfielder in the Gers’ diamond with Ryan Jack and Jason Holt ahead expected to cover for Carlos Pena defensively.

If Morelos recovers from a hip injury in time then the Colombian striker is expected to partner Kenny Miller in attack with Josh Windass the most likely candidate to drop out of the starting XI.

In the latest Rangers news, Murty has had his say on Wednesday’s game against the Dons.
