Rangers manager Graeme Murty is expected to make two changes to his side when they travel to face Celtic on Saturday lunchtime in the Scottish Premiership.
Josh Windass and Jamie Barjonas are expected to come in to the starting XI for Niko Kranjcar and Ryan Jack in the Gers’ 4-1-2-1-2 shape to take on Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Rangers’ injury problems are expected to force yet another reshuffle with Jack, Graham Dorrans, Kenny Miller, Jordan Rossiter and Jak Alnwick all set to miss the trip to Celtic Park through injury.
Wes Foderingham is expected to keep his place in goal behind a back four of James Tavernier, Bruno Alves, Danny Wilson and Declan John.
Captain Lee Wallace could make the bench but it’s unlikely he’ll start after missing several months of action with a groin injury.
Ross McCrorie is likely to continue in the anchor role in the Gers’ midfield diamond with Jason Holt and Barjonas, 18, ahead of him with Ryan Jack set to miss out after being injured by Motherwell’s Cedric Kipre.
Josh Windass should return from suspension to replace senior player Kranjcar, who is most likely to be axed from the number 10 role with Alfredo Morelos and Eduardo Herrera given another opportunity to impress together.
A win for the Gers would be a huge morale boost ahead of the winter break and would give Murty something to build on in the second-half of the campaign.
