Probable Rangers XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Allan McGregor (GK)

McGregor is Rangers’ undisputed No.1 and should start on Thursday.

James Tavernier (RB)

Tavernier will have to be at the top of his game to keep the Feyenoord forwards at bay.

Connor Goldson (CB)

Goldson is probably one of the first names on the team sheet. He is certain to start at Rotterdam.

Filip Helander (CB)

The Swede put up a strong display against Hamilton at the weekend and he’ll be keen to produce something similar at Feyenoord.

Borna Barisic (LB)

Barisic is currently high on confidence after a string of impressive displays and deserves to keep his place at left-back.

Ryan Jack (CDM)

Jack recovered in time to face Hamilton and vindicated Gerrard’s selection with a goal at the weekend. The Gers will need him to put in a solid shift in the middle of the park once again to thwart Feyenoord.

Steven Davis (RCM)

The veteran has been really impressive this season and there is no way he is going to be benched for this one.

Glen Kamara (LCM)

Kamara adds a lot of energy and tenacity to the Rangers engine room. He will complete the Gers’ midfield trio.

Scott Arfield (RW)

Arfield is a versatile player who can play in different positions across the frontline. He should start on the right flank against Feyenoord.

Ryan Kent (LW)

Kent was on fire at the weekend as he scored a brace to help Rangers win against Hamilton. He’ll be raring to put in another solid display on Thursday.

Alfredo Morelos (ST)

With Alfredo Morelos in such lethal form, there is no way the Colombian will be benched for this game. He’ll start ahead of veteran Defoein the No.9 role.
