Rangers fans are desperate to see Pedro Caixinha start in-form attacker Joe Garner against Kilmarnock on Wednesday night.
Garner, 28, scored his eighth Rangers goal of the season last time out despite starting as a substitute, as he came off the bench to equalise against Motherwell in the 1-1 draw.
The summer signing netted from a tight angle to restore parity and could have done enough to earn his first start under new manager Caixinha since the Portuguese boss took over.
It remains to be seen who would replace the former Preston forward in attack, with the likes of Barrie McKay, Kenny Miller and Martyn Waghorn all performing well in the final third.
Rangers fans are desperate to see Garner start a match for the first time since February 19. He has remained on the sidelines despite scoring a hat-trick against Hamilton as a sub in March in the Scottish Cup.

Rangers’ number seven endured a difficult start to life at Ibrox, but is now in a hot streak of form that has seen him find the back of the net five times in the last six games.
A win against Kilmarnock could see the Gers move to within seven points of Aberdeen, if Derek McInnes’ side lose to Inverness.
In other Rangers news, two changes are expected in the Gers starting line-up to face Kilmarnock.
