Rangers expected 4-2-3-1 v Motherwell: 28-year-old omitted

By Dominic Toner

Rangers are expected to name an unchanged starting XI against Motherwell on Saturday, with Joe Garner resigned to the bench once again.

The 28-year-old has failed to make a strong impact since his £1.5million arrival and is set to remain on the bench.

The forward has managed seven goals in 28 appearances, but is currently stuck behind teammate Martyn Waghorn in the pecking order.

Pedro Caixinha is expected to make no alterations from the team that dispatched Hamilton 4-0 during his first game in charge of the Scottish giants.

The Gers are currently third-placed in the league table and are on course for a European spot, but will be keen to close the eight-point gap to Aberdeen in second.

Wes Foderingham is set to continue as the number one goalkeeper, while James Tavernier and Lee Wallace start in the full-back positions.

Danny Wilson is expected to partner veteran defender Clint Hill at centre-back, with the latter in a recent good run of goalscoring form.

Jason Holt and Jon Toral are set to play in the two central midfield positions, and have Kenny Miller in the number 10 position.

Meanwhile, Barrie McKay and Emerson Hyndman are set to start in the wide area and will look to provide the service for star forward Waghorn.

Waghorn will be looking to establish himself as the first-choice striker under Caixinha ahead of Garner and has managed an impressive 15 goals in 31 appearances this campaign.
