McCall faces big selection dilemma; should Haris Vuckic start against Cowdenbeath?

Rangers manager Stuart McCall may be faced with a dilemma as his side face Cowdenbeath today.

Rangers boss Stuart McCall could be faced with a big selection dilemma when his side face Cowdenbeath at Ibrox later today.

McCall was appointed as Rangers manager earlier this month, and claimed his first win at the third attempt last weekend, as his side beat Hibernian 2-0 at Easter Road.

After five straight draws, the win came as a real confidence boost not only to the Rangers players but also the fans, who have endured another turbulent season.

McCall made the bold decision to go with a 5-3-2 system against Hibs, and it worked perfectly - meaning he could choose to stick with it in the foreseeable future.

The formation featured Dean Shiels given something of a free role to try and support front two Nicky Clark and Kenny Miller, with the Northern Ireland international playing a key role.

However, there is certainly a case to be made that Shiels was only in that role because Haris Vuckis was out injured, with the Newcastle United loanee impressing in games before that.

The Slovenian is now back to full fitness, meaning McCall could have a dilemma on his hands as he chooses to either stick with Shiels or recall Vuckic.

Vuckic possesses more of a goal threat and extra quality in the final third, but Shiels should work harder than Vuckic and contribute more defensively.

Given that Rangers are at home to a poor Cowdenbeath side, McCall should be going for the jugular by starting Vuckic in an attacking line-up - but it will be hard to justify changing a winning side after last week's performance.
