Rangers expected 4-2-3-1 v Aberdeen: 25-year-old axed in three changes
By Harvey Byrne
Pedro Caixinha is expected to make three changes to his team which lines up against Aberdeen at the Pittodrie Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Gers’ midweek meeting saw them held to a 0-0 draw against Kilmarnock and it is now likely that Caixinha will look to make some minor adjustments to his team.
The changes are expected to see midfielder Andrew Halliday axed for Jon Toral in the centre of the park after the 25-year-old struggled on Wednesday evening.
Meanwhile, misfiring duo Joe Garner and Martyn Waghorn are also likely to drop out of the team with the more experienced Kenny Miller joining the eleven alongside Josh Windass.
Rangers are currently struggling with injuries at the back with Rob Kiernan, Clint Hill and Lee Wallace all in the treatment room.

Full-back Lee Hodson has been confirmed as available for the clash after missing the midweek match against Kilmarnock with a fever.
But, it is likely Caixinha will stick with James Tavernier, David Bates, Danny Wilson and Myles Beerman after they helped keep a clean sheet in midweek.
Further up the pitch midfielder Jason Holt is expected to keep his place in the centre alongside Toral with both possessing the ability to hold onto the ball for their side.
It is likely they will be feeding an attacking trio of Windass, Emerson Hyndman and Barrie McKay with usual central player Windass playing out right, as he did when coming on for Waghorn in midweek.
The three all possess the ability to feed 37-year-old Miller, who has nine goals and six assists in 39 outings in all competitions this season as the club tries to find a way to score more goals.
