Trio axed in Murty 4-1-2-1-2: Rangers best possible XI v Hibernian


Interim Rangers boss Graeme Murty must make three changes to his side which beat Ross County if his strongest starting XI is to start against Hibernian on Wednesday night.

Carlos Pena, Daniel Candeias and Kenny Miller need to be axed with Jamie Barjonas, Eduardo Herrera and Alfredo Morelos coming in to the side.

The Light Blues have won three games in a row for the first time in a year and will be desperate to make it four against Neil Lennon’s side.

Saturday’s win over Ross County saw the Gers return to second place in the table and helped close the gap to leaders Celtic to five points.

Regular number one Wes Foderingham should continue in goal with James Tavernier, Bruno Alves, Danny Wilson and Declan John making up the Rangers defence.

Ross McCrorie should be fit for the trip to Easter Road despite coming off with an injury against Ross County and is the obvious fit for the base of Rangers’ midfield diamond.

Ahead of him, Jason Holt and Jamie Barjonas should start in the middle of the park to try and control the tempo of the game and get the better of key Hibs players like John McGinn.

Daniel Candeias started as one of the midfielders against Ross County but drifted wide too often and disrupted the Gers’ shape at times.

After his horror show against Ross County, Carlos Pena should be dropped with Josh Windass given the freedom to operate in the gap between Hibs’ midfield and defence.

The front-line is all change with Eduardo Herrera and Alfredo Morelos starting together and Kenny Miller making way.

Morelos has ended his run of games without a goal and Mexican striker Herrera really needs to be given an opportunity to show what he can do beyond five minute cameos from the bench.

In other Rangers news, Mark Warburton has revealed he wanted to sign this Celtic player while he was in charge at Ibrox.
