A sports enthusiast in his mid-twenties who reads, breathes, as well as dreams (mostly) about football and attempts to share his views with the fanatics by jotting it down. Prefers to learn through extensive interaction, communication and exploration. So don't be in a quandary and SHOOT.

Rangers have underperformed in the Scottish Premiership, but they are on the verge of conquering the Europa League after scripting an incredible comeback against RB Leipzig. Giovanni van Bronckhorst must protect his juggernaut from fatigue and injuries, and therefore, rest an array of first-team stars on Sunday afternoon in a dead rubber league tie versus Dundee United.

Celtic are likely to reclaim the league crown this weekend by defeating Hearts at Parkhead. On the other hand, the Light Blues have two massive finals lined up later this month against Eintracht Frankfurt and Hearts. The travelling Bears must create a similar ambience at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the Europa League final.

Predicted 4-2-3-1 Rangers Lineup To Face Dundee United

Defence

Skipper Allan McGregor might claim the greatest honour of his career before hanging up his gloves. He needs a run of games to fine-tune his performance before the Frankfurt clash.

Despite being a right fullback, skipper James Tavernier has been the highest scorer this season in the Europa League. He has been exemplary with his leadership traits and the gaffer should manage his minutes this weekend by handing Mateusz Żukowski a rare start in the Rangers defence.

Young academy prodigy Leon King should be deployed alongside Leon Balogun as the central defensive pairing ahead of Connor Goldson and Calvin Bassey. The latter is expected to feature from the left with Borna Barisic tipped to be involved at a later stage.

Midfield

Ryan Jack picked up a knock against Leipzig and the manager should rest him along with John Lundstram who scored the late winner on Thursday night. Steven Davis and James Sands must be utilized as the double pivot to operate from the deep.
Joe Aribo suffered a concussion in the first half but should be available for the Tangerines tie. Scott Arfield might grab a starting role down the right, also the impressive Ryan Jack deserves some minutes off after a gruelling midweek encounter versus the German giants. Scott Wright is an option who has been frequently involved in recent fixtures. Amad Diallo and Aaron Ramsey are there as well who could be introduced as second-half substitutes.

Attack

Although back in training, Kemar Roofe failed to recover in time for the Leipzig game. He must not be rushed for these irrelevant league outings and Fashion Sakala, capable of featuring across the frontline, should spearhead the attack with his agility and pace. Cedric Itten remains an alternative who offers a more direct approach as a targetman.
