Rangers escaped with a 0-0 draw against Legia Warsaw in the midweek Europa League playoff clash. Next, they will travel to the Paisley 2021 Stadium to take on St. Mirren in a league encounter. The Saints defeated Aberdeen 1-0 in their last game, so we don’t expect this clash to be a cakewalk for Rangers.
These are the kind of games which might define a title race as the tie is sandwiched between two massive European fixtures. However, everyone is aware that Rangers’ priority this season is to stop Celtic’s juggernaut in the Premiership. Rangers won all three meetings with St. Mirren last season without conceding a goal so Gerrard’s men should be confident about getting the job done.
Team News: Gerrard has been lucky as there have been no significant injury concerns for first-team players so far. Jamie Murphy, who missed more than a year of football, has started training, and he might make some impact in future games for Rangers.
Rangers Predicted Lineup Vs St. Mirren
Allan McGregor played a big part in keeping a clean sheet in Poland, and he should start in goal once again. Connor Goldson is likely to continue at the back. Filip Helander could be given a go in this tie ahead of Nikola Katic. Helander did a decent job in the cup game against East Fife earlier.
With two big games to come against Legia Warsaw and Celtic next, this could be the game to give James Tavernier a breather. We think that Jon Flanagan should get to start as a right-back in this clash. Andy Halliday will slot in at left-back as Flanagan shifts to the other side.
Ryan Jack might continue to play in the deepest role in midfield. Glen Kamara should come back to the eleven after he didn’t start in the last encounter. The other midfield spot could go to new signing Andy King as Gerrard might want to keep Joe Aribo fresh for the upcoming matches.
Jordan Jones is expected to start down the left, and he has impressed so far since his arrival at the Ibrox. Sheyi Ojo might be rested, and Jake Hastie could get the nod to start on the right flank. Jermain Defoe is expected to start over Alfredo Morelos upfront. The manager can always recall Morelos off the bench if the tie is level or if Rangers are trailing around the hour mark.
