Mark Warburton is expected to make one change to the Rangers side on Wednesday.

The Gers will continue their league campaign on Saturday and host seventh-placed Kilmarnock.

Rangers were held to a 1-1 home draw on Wednesday night against St Johnstone and are currently fifth in the table, nine points adrift of league leaders Celtic.

There were first-half goals from Blair Alston and then Joe Garner against St Johnstone, but the hosts failed to secure the three points after the break.

Harry Forrester is set to lose his place in the starting XI after failing to make an impact, with Michael O’Halloran and Joe Garner grabbing their opportunities on their returns to the side.

Martyn Waghorn is set to replace him in the team and offer a stronger goal threat for Warburton.

Warburton is set to stick with the same defence and leave out popular pair Matt Gilks and James Tavernier.

Goalkeeper Gilks delivered a man-of-the-match display against Celtic in the League Cup semi-final defeat, but was replaced by current number one Wes Foderingham against St Johnstone.

Full-back Lee Hodson has managed to land a starting place in the last two games and appears to have the nod ahead of Tavernier currently.

Warburton is set to continue with the same midfield trio, with Niko Kranjcar currently sidelined with a potential season-threatening injury and Joey Barton still suspended by the club following his training ground bust-up.

Waghorn, 26, is set to be recalled to the side and will hope to demonstrate the goal scoring form he showed last season, scoring 28 goals in just 36 appearances.

Winger Forrester is set to be axed from the team after struggling to provide a goal threat against St Johnstone and being substituted off in the second-half.
