Rangers are hosting Hibernian for their Scottish Premiership fixture on Saturday. The fans at Ibrox Stadium are pleased to see their side contending for the league title after winning promotion last year but on the other hand, will be disappointed to see Celtic win their seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership trophy.
Rangers will have to play an unlikely catch up now and while a gap of eleven points is mathematically chasable, Rangers will know the obscure nature of the task. After the 0-0 draw to the league leaders in their last game of 2017, the climb is now even tougher with the gruelling second half of the season already upon us.
Pedro Caixinha, who had tried to bring about a revolution with his approach and player signings at the Ibrox, failed with his approach and subsequently got fired. His successor Graeme Murty has done a decent job so far.
Murty most importantly restored club legend forward Kenny Miller to the team. The infamous fallout between Rangers FC club captain Kenny Miller and dynamic coach Pedro Caixinha had left the club in an awkward position. As the drama of the story intensified, with rumours of Miller being accused as the team mole; Caixinha shunned fan favourite out of the first team.
Miller, however, had the last laugh as Caixinha was the one who ended up losing his job. With the biggest clash of the season coming up over the weekend for Rangers, Miller who will be unavailable for the match will be tasked with the responsibility of motivating his team off the pitch.
The Gers are coming off an impressive 1-2 win over Ross County last week and have had a successful transfer window. Graeme Murty is expected to field his men in the 4-2-3-1 formation.
Wes Foderingham is expected to play in goal for the Bluenoses. Their central defence is likely to be commanded by former Norwich City player, Russell Martin who will be partnered by David Bates. Operating in left back position would be Declan John with the right back spot likely to go to James Tavernier.
Jason Holt is likely to play in the holding midfield position alongside Sean Goss with Josh Windass playing as the attacking midfielder in front of them.
Windass might get flanked by Jamie Murphy on the left and Daniel Candeias on the right.
