Rangers FC are going up against Kilmarnock at the Ibrox Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Gers are coming off their most humiliating defeat to their bitter rivals in the Scottish Premiership. Celtic won the tie 5-0 and lifted their seventh consecutive league title.

Not only was it a total embarrassment for the Light Blues after the 4-0 thrashing they received in the Scottish Cup Semi-Finals but it was also a chance to look back into their own shortcomings.

The club was forced to do away with interim boss, Graeme Murty and is currently looking into competent replacements.

For now, the Gers will have to see out the remainder of the season without furthering more upsets. As far as the next campaign is concerned, they will have to make some serious changes through the summer transfer window.

Killie are unbeaten against the Gers this season and will be facing them at the Ibrox for the third time this season. They have a fully healthy squad other than long-time absentees Steven Smith and Rory McKenzie.

Nevertheless, Rangers will be looking to place all their previous week troubles behind them with a win in this fixture. Finishing outside the top-three is almost unthinkable for the Gers fans.

Here is how Nicholl and Johansson might choose to field the team.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Defence

Jak Alnwick is the predicted starter in between the sticks as Wes Foderingham still recovers from that long-time shoulder injury.

Andy Halliday and James Tavernier will have to provide cover from the flanks.

Ross McCrorie and Russell Martin are to pair up in the centre-back roles.

Declan John and David Bates remain concerned over their fitness.

Lee Wallace and Kenny Miller are still without permission to be anywhere near the club grounds.

Midfield

Jordan Rossiter is expected to be welcomed back into the starting XI. He could feature in the holding midfield role alongside Graham Dorrans, who has impressed with his 5 goals and 3 assists in the Premiership this season.

Josh Windass is the uncontested starter in the attacking midfield position. The 24-year has been their best player throughout the 2017/18 campaign and will look to finish the season on a strong note.

Daniel Candeias and Jamie Murphy might feature on the flanks. Murphy on the left and Candeias on the right.

Attack

Alfredo Morelos should find himself starting in the centre-forward role. Jason Cummings to remain on the bench as backup.
