Four January signings start, one is dropped: Rangers expected XI v Fraserburgh
Rangers manager Graeme Murty is expected to make four changes to his side when they take on Highland League minnows Fraserburgh in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup on Wednesday night.
Jak Alnwick, Lee Hodson, Greg Docherty and Jason Cummings are expected to come into the starting XI with Wes Foderingham, James Tavernier, Sean Goss and Josh Windass dropping out from the team which beat Ross County 2-1 in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.
It means that four signings made in the January transfer window could start with Cummings, Murphy, Docherty and Russell Martin.
After being given the nod in previous cup games, Alnwick is expected to come into the starting XI to replace regular number one Foderingham.
Murty will be forced into making a change to his defence with suspension ruling Tavernier out meaning a likely recall for Hodson to join David Bates, Martin and Declan John in the back four.
Jason Holt is expected to continue in the centre of midfield with new signing Docherty coming in to make his first start since moving from Hamilton last week to replace January signing Goss, who may be dropped.
Wingers Daniel Candeias and Murphy could continue on the flanks as the Gers look to ease their way past the Highland League side.
Candeias was the best player on the pitch for Murty’s side in the win over Ross County and will be hoping for a similar performance at Bellslea Park.
After being kept apart in the Gers’ two previous games, Alfredo Morelos and Cummings are expected to be paired together for the first time after Cummings’ move from Nottingham Forest.
A trip to face Ayr United in the fifth round awaits the winner of the re-arranged clash between the Ibrox giants and tiny Broch.
