Rangers expected 4-2-3-1 v St. Johnstone: 21-year-old axed in two changes
By Danny Wright
Pedro Caixinha is expected to make two changes to his Rangers team to play at St. Johnstone in what will be the final game of a disappointing campaign on Sunday.
Joe Dodoo, 21, is expected to be axed in place of Martyn Waghorn, who came off the bench to score against Aberdeen in the 2-1 loss on Wednesday night.
Myles Beerman could also return to Caixinha’s 4-2-3-1 in the place of Lee Hodson after he was forced off after 18 minutes with an ankle injury in the defeat to the Dons.
Rangers cannot finish anywhere other than third place following results in mid-week meaning that Caixinha could pull a few surprises to his team selection and may rely on the Gers academy to make up the numbers once more.
However Wes Foderingham is expected to keep his place in goal behind a potential back four of James Tavernier, David Bates, Aidan Wilson and Beerman.

Jon Toral and Josh Windass could keep their places in the centre of midfield.
Waghorn is expected to line up on the left wing with Barrie McKay on the opposite flank.
Veteran Kenny Miller might start in the No 10 role behind Joe Garner, who has scored in each of Rangers’ last two wins.
St. Johnstone can finish within three points of the Light Blues if they can cause an upset at McDiarmid Park on Sunday.
Tommy Wright’s side are Rangers’ closest rivals in the league as Aberdeen opened up a nine point gap between second and third-placed Gers on Wednesday.
Both teams are guaranteed to finish in the same position regardless of results in this weekend’s action.
