Senior duo axed and replaced by January recruits: Rangers best possible XI v Ross County
Rangers manager Graeme Murty must make two changes to his side when they take on Ross County on Sunday if he wants to field his strongest possible starting XI.
January recruits Jason Cummings and Greg Docherty must come in to the starting side to make their full debuts, at the expense of senior duo Josh Windass and Jason Holt, who must be axed from the Gers’ slightly tweaked 4-4-2.
Starting Cummings ahead of Windass would give Alfredo Morelos and out-and-out strike partner to try and cause havoc for the County defence.
Wes Foderingham is almost certain to start in goal behind a back four of James Tavernier, David Bates, Russell Martin and Declan John as they look to record a fourth consecutive shutout.
Despite his impressive performance against Aberdeen on Wednesday night, Jason Holt should come out of the side for new signing Greg Docherty.
Docherty joins Rangers with almost 100 Scottish Premiership appearances already under his belt and should be able to slot right into the starting XI.
Daniel Candeias and Jamie Murphy should start on the flanks for the Gers with Cummings and Morelos up-front.
Morelos is already the top goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership while Cummings will be desperate to get his first goal since joining the Gers from Nottingham Forest earlier this month.
In other Rangers news, Murty has confirmed the club are looking to get more deals over the line before Wednesday’s deadline.
