Morelos Returns, Flanagan Continues In Defence | 4-3-3 Rangers Predicted Lineup Vs Ross County

Rangers are once again stumbling after the winter break as they have produced some below-par displays in the last few games. They scraped past St. Mirren but Hearts at the weekend gave a run for their money and grabbed full three points after coming back to win from a goal down.

The break has seemed to done more harm than good for the Bears as they have seemingly lost the momentum and Gerrard will have to pick his men up when they take on Ross County next in a midweek encounter. The Gers had managed a 4-0 win when they faced them in October. Rangers will be back to the comforts of their home, and they cannot afford any more slip up in the title race with Celtic picking their usual points. Gerrard’s men are now five points behind Celtic, having played a game less.

Team News: James Tavernier was missed against the Jambos, but he is likely to be unavailable again. Centre back Filip Helander is also going to miss out. Alfredo Morelos is set to be available after he served his three-game suspension. 

Ranger Predicted Lineup Vs Ross County

Formation (4-3-3)

Defence

Allan McGregor is likely to continue between the sticks for the Bears. Connor Goldson is going to protect him in the centre back role. Nikola Katic is going to partner him in defence. Borna Barisic is a nailed-on starter in the left-back position. Jon Flanagan was substituted at half time against Hearts, but he might start again at right-back as even Matt Polster failed to impress much. Nathan Patterson is also a plausible option, but given his inexperience, Rangers might not want to start him in a league game yet.

Midfield

Steven Davis has put in some average displays off late, and the veteran midfielder needs to pick his game up. He should start in the centre of the midfield three. Ryan Jack should be on his right. Scott Arfield’s experience and intelligent movement could be crucial for Rangers to open up the opposition defence and he could be preferred over Glen Kamara in midfield.

Attack

Ryan Kent looked good against Hearts, but that wasn’t enough to give Rangers a win. He will continue on the left-wing. Joe Aribo needs to add finishing touch to his game, but he has been threatening from the right flank so far. Alfredo Morelos has clearly been missed, and he should return to the lineup to lead the line.
