Rangers will take on Queen of the South at Ibrox in the Scottish Championship this afternoon.

Rangers defender Danny Wilson has made a joke about Queen of the South midfielder Kyle Hutton on the club’s official website.

The Gers will take on Queens at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship this afternoon.

Wilson is good friends with Hutton, who was on the books of the Gers until the end of the 2014-15 season.

The former Liverpool and Heart of Midlothian centre-back is determined to help Rangers pick up all three points this afternoon. The 24-year-old has also joked that he will speak to Hutton after the match.

“They were here last year and were the midfield two for a period of the season," Wilson told Rangers' official website. "Murdoch won’t be playing, but Hutton did well last time he came back here and performed very well.

“I still speak to Hutts quite a lot, he’s a really good friend of mine but I won’t be speaking to him this week and hopefully I can speak to him after the game and have something to rub his nose in a little bit."

Rangers are the strongest team in the Scottish Championship, and they should be able to win against Queens with ease.

The Glasgow giants cannot be complacent, though, and must be respectful towards the Doonhamers.

Mark Warburton’s side are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 72 points from 29 matches, 11 points clear of second-placed Falkirk with a game in hand.
