Rangers head to Gibraltar to face Lincoln Red Imps in their quest to advance past the Europa League qualifying stages.
They’re a team that are famed for knocking out arch-rivals Celtic in Brendan Rodgers’ first-ever game in charge all those years ago and Steven Gerrard will want to ensure that he’s not on the end of the embarrassment this time around.
The Ibrox outfit romped to a 4-0 victory at the weekend but it came at the expense of a few injuries, so what sort of side will the Gers boss select here tonight?
Here’s what we are predicting…
Gerrard could make as many as four changes across the pitch as some fringe players are surely in line to garner some much-needed match action.
Between the sticks should be first-choice Jon McLaughlin whilst the back four in front of him only has one difference from Saturday’s win and clean sheet.
In comes 23-year-0ld centre-back George Edmondson for Filip Helander. He’ll partner Conor Goldson with James Tavernier and Borna Barisic likely to remain on either flank.
Both central midfielders are switched around, meaning there’s no place for the injured Ryan Jack or veteran Steven Davis. Instead, Gerrard could call upon Scott Arfield and £10m man Glen Kamara, who has been linked with an exit this summer.
Joe Aribo and Brandon Barker are also on the treatment table meaning 30-year-old forward Greg Stewart could be forced to play out with Ryan Kent occupying the other side.
Through the middle, Ianis Hagi keeps his place in the number ten role with Kemar Roofe getting the nod once again over Alfredo Morelos and Cedric Itten.
The Scottish giants will face Willem II in the third round if they manage to pick up the victory tonight.
AND in other news, Rangers can fire warning to Celtic title bid with £4m capture of “phenomenal” playmaker…
