Pedro Caixinha is expected to make one change to the Rangers team for his first match in charge against Hamilton on Saturday.
The Ibrox giants’ last outing saw them battle to a hard-fought 1-1 draw against fierce rivals and Celtic and while many impressed, striker Martyn Waghorn did not.
The 26-year-old missed a couple of brilliant chances which could have proven more costly if Clint Hill did not pop up at the end to score a late equaliser.
This is now expected to see him axed from the side for this weekend’s Ibrox clash with Joe Garner returning from suspension , while Kenny Miller moves to the wide right role.
Caixinha is unlikely to change too much after just a few days in charge and is expected to keep to the club’s much used 4-3-3 formation for now.
Wes Foderingham will be looking to keep his 12th clean sheet of the campaign, but he will be need to be helped by an unchanged back four in front of him.
Centre-back Rob Kiernan is still suspended for this match after picking up a two-match ban following a red card against St. Johnstone.
Andy Halliday’s injury will also mean that the midfield remains unchanged with Jason Holt, Emerson Hyndman and James Tavernier all performing well against Celtic.
Midfield loanee Jon Toral has returned from an injury himself this week, but this match may come too soon for him.
Meanwhile, the front three is likely to be made up of Miller, Garner and young star Barrie McKay on the left.
All three will be looking to impress Caixinha in charge and after beating Hamilton 6-0 earlier in the month, they will have the belief of clocking up another high scoreline.
