Rangers will host Scottish League One’s basement boys Stranraer FC at Ibrox in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup. The Bears should be in a positive mood after they managed to win a crucial tie against Celtic before the mini winter break.
Rangers are yet to win a trophy under Gerrard, but they came close in the League Cup encounter earlier where they succumbed in the final. Gerrard would want to end his pursuit of silverware soon. There is no doubt about which side would go in as the favourites for this tie. Gerrard might be keen to give some of his fringe players a chance in this encounter.
Team News: Summer signing Filip Helander is going to be unavailable as he is yet to recover from his injury. Striker Alfredo Morelos is suspended for this encounter. Apart from that, Gerrard should have a strong squad to choose from.
4-3-3 Rangers Predicted Lineup Vs Stranraer F.C.
Wes Foderingham could get the chance to start ahead of Allan McGregor in between the sticks for this clash. George Edmundson might not have played too many games since his arrival, but he has looked promising whenever he has featured. He should start in the centre back role.
Nikola Katic is expected to partner him at the back. Former Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan could start in place of James Tavernier at right-back. Borna Barisic has played some of the best football of his career this season, but he might not be risked in this encounter. Andy Halliday might get the nod to start at left-back.
Ryan Jack has been instrumental for Rangers in midfield this season. He should start in the defensive midfield role. Scott Arfield has dropped in midfield in the last few games, and he could start in the middle. The other midfield spot might go to Glen Kamara.
Jordan Jones has returned to full training after his injury issue where he missed three months of action. He is likely to feature from the left flank. Greg Stewart has impressed whenever he has gotten his chances, and he could start on the right side.
The summer signing would look to drift into central areas and play almost as a no.10 instead of occupying the wings. Jermain Defoe is expected to lead the line in this clash with Morelos being suspended. Even if the Colombian was available, he would have been unlikely to feature in this encounter.
