'Should be a cert' - Rangers fans react as Murty axes 22-yr-old in starting XI v Hamilton
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has made one change to his side to take on Hamilton Academical at New Douglas Park in the Scottish Premiership with Daniel Candeias replacing Jason Cummings.
The Portuguese winger’s re-introduction, as confirmed by the Gers’ official Twitter account likely means a move back to the 4-2-3-1 Rangers have regularly used under Murty.

A win for the Light Blues would see them overtake Aberdeen in second-place in the table after the Dons lost to Hibs on Saturday.
Murty’s side romped to an easy 6-1 win over Ayr United in last weekend’s Scottish Cup fifth-round clash at Somerset and the Light Blues will be looking to replicate their second-half performance against the Honest Men.
Gers fans were furious Cummings, 22, has been axed with supporters wanting to see Cummings and Alfredo Morelos paired in attack.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Team picks itself. Would’ve loved to have seen Morelos & Cummings at a game like Hamilton though. Come on!

Cummings and Morelos scored three of Rangers’ six goals in last Sunday’s win at Ayr.
Hamilton came out on top the last time the two sides met with a surprise win at Ibrox giving them their first away league win over the Gers since 1926.
Last time the Gers visited New Douglas Park, Pedro Caixinha’s side came out 4-1 winners after Declan John’s double and goals from Daniel Candeias and Graham Dorrans.
