'Buzzing' - Rangers fans lose their minds as enforcer starts v Hibernian
Rangers interim manager Graeme Murty has named his starting XI to face Neil Lennon’s Hibernian – and fans have lost their minds with excitement after it was announced that Ross McCrorie is fit to start.
The Gers have made two changes to the side which came back from a goal down to beat Ross County at Ibrox on Saturday.
Daniel Candeias and Carlos Pena drop out for Jamie Barjonas and Alfredo Morelos in the Gers’ 4-1-2-1-2 formation.
The Ibrox giants’ starting XI was confirmed by the club’s official Twitter account.

The Gers have won their last three fixtures and find themselves in second place in the Scottish Premiership on goal difference.
Since Graeme Murty was handed the reins on a short-term basis, the Gers have closed the gap on leaders Celtic to five points and face their Old Firm rivals on December 30th.
The Light Blues have lost each of their last three games with Hibs 3-2 – including the 2016 Scottish Cup final but will be looking to put that right against Neil Lennon’s side at Easter Road.
Hibs held Celtic to a 2-2 draw at Easter Road on Sunday afternoon after going 2-0 down to Brendan Rodgers’ side in the second-half.
Two quickfire goals stunned the Hoops but Lennon’s side couldn’t push on and find a winner.
