Dominic Ball suggests what Rangers boss Mark Warburton hasn’t decided about Old Firm clash

Ibrox side Rangers will face their Old Firm rivals in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Rangers defender Dominic Ball has suggested to The Daily Record that manager Mark Warburton has not decided his starting lineup against Celtic.

The Gers will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic at Ibrox in Glasgow in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Ball, who is 20 years of age and joined Rangers on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, has suggested that Warburton has yet to make a decision on his first XI against the Bhoys.

“If the gaffer chooses me and puts me in there, like he did on Sunday, I will do my best,” the youngster told The Daily Record. “He still has to make his decision for the semi-final. Everything has been going well but we will see what happens.”

Ball has been one of the best players for Rangers this season and has proven his versatility by playing in midfield on occasions this campaign.

The England Under-20 international is at his best when deployed in defence, and Warburton should be looking to play him in that position against Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

Celtic will head into the game as favourites, but Rangers will give their Old Firm rivals a run for their money.
