Rangers expected 4-3-3 v Celtic: 24-year-old axed in three changes
By Amir Mir
Rangers could make three changes to their starting XI when they take on Celtic in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
Graeme Murty’s side picked up a much-needed win last Saturday when they thumped Hamilton 6-0 to qualify for the semi-final stages of the Scottish Cup.
Now, the suspended Rob Kiernan, attacker Martyn Waghorn and 24-year-old Jason Holt could be axed for the highly-anticipated Old Firm clash.
Centre-back Danny Wilson, Harry Forrester and Andy Halliday might come into the starting XI for the clash at the weekend.
Despite a poor showing during his last match, the experienced Kenny Miller might continue up top, with attacking midfielder Forrester playing out wide.

Furthermore, the ever dangerous Barrie McKay could start on the left and be expected to provide the attacking threat for the away team.
In midfield, the trio of Halliday, Emerson Hyndman and Jon Toral might start as they will be tasked to provide the balance in attack and defence against the unbeaten Hoops.
In defence, 26-year-old Kiernan is suspended for this encounter, therefore, Wilson might be expected to take his place.
The former Liverpool man could partner the experienced Clint Hill on the day with James Tavernier and Lee Wallace possibly starting as the full-backs.
If he starts, left-back Wallace could prove to be the dangerman for the Gers because of the attacking threat and defensive solidity he can provide.
