Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd has suggested in The Scottish Sun that Rangers manager Mark Warburton could face a problem in his team selection against Celtic this weekend.

Rangers will take on Old Firm rivals Celtic at Hampden Park in the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Boyd, who had two separate spells at Ibrox, has highlighted a problem Warburton could face in team selection.

The Kilmarnock striker has stated that the Rangers boss has a massive decision to make when it comes to choosing which goalkeeper to start against Celtic - Matt Gilks or Wes Foderingham.

“He has a massive decision to make in terms of who starts in goal against Celtic at Hampden,” Boyd wrote in The Scottish Sun.

“Matt Gilks and Wes Foderingham were both given 180 minutes in the group stages of the Betfred Cup this season.

“Gilks has played the two knock out games and after their quarter-final win he said he fully expected to start at the national stadium. But Foderingham is the Ibrox No 1. For me, he is the better of the two goalkeepers.”

Both Foderingham and Gilks have done quite well for Rangers so far this season, but perhaps Warburton should give the nod to the former.

Foderingham is the first-choice goalkeeper at Ibrox, and he should start as the game against Celtic is massive.

Perhaps more importantly, Warburton needs to make sure that the Rangers defence is strong and solid enough to protect the goalkeeper.

Celtic won 5-1 against Old Firm rivals Rangers at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership in September.
