Predicted Rangers Line-up To Face Kilmarnock In The Scottish Premiership
Rangers’ depressing 2-0 defeat in the League Cup semi-final against Motherwell at Hampden Park has angered certain players, none more so than centre-back Bruno Alves.
Alves thought the referee was weak during the encounter, and assuming there are no recriminations for the defender, he can line-up at Ibrox and will look to lead his team to a morale-boosting league success.
Pedro Caixinha was sent to the stands at Hampden, but is likely to be present get the club back on track once more against Killie:
Manager: Pedro Caixinha
GK – Wes Foderingham
Jak Alnwick played the semi-final the other day, but Foderingham is likely to come back in for the league clash.
RB – James Tavernier
The marauding right-back, assuming he doesn’t get caught out, is likely to make an impact in this game going forward and should be on hand to double up with Daniel Candeias.
CB – Fabio Cardoso
Assuming he is patched up alright after the semi-final, Cardoso can carry on his partnership with fellow countryman at the back.
CB – Bruno Alves
His presence has turned out to be vital this season and another commanding performance at the back would go a long way here in helping Rangers record a crucial victory.
LB – Declan John
Although only replacing Wallace due to injury, John has been an improvement and another swashbuckling performance could be on the cards down the left.
RM – Daniel Candeias
Hopefully staying more on the right than he did the other day, Candeias can cause big problems to the Killie defence and will look to put chances on the plate for Morelos.
CM – Ryan Jack
The former Aberdeen captain has settled really well at Rangers and has formed a good partnership with Dorrans.
CM – Graham Dorrans
Crucial to the Gers’ chances, Dorrans should line up once again here and could help propel his side to a first win at Ibrox since September 9th.
LM – Josh Windass
Coming of age this season, Windass just needs to improve his finishing and he can make a huge impact in this division.
SS – Carlos Pena
His goals in support of Morelos have been crucial, though the combination was rather a let down on Sunday. More is expected here and I wouldn’t be surprised if more goals come from the popular Mexican.
ST – Alfredo Morelos
A return to scoring ways would be appreciated by the crowd here, though I’m sure after what happened on Sunday the Kilmarnock defence will target the striker with some rough tackling.
