Rangers are back in league action this afternoon as they host Hibernian at Ibrox, just days after hammering Dunfermline 6-0 in the Scottish League Cup.

The Gers beat Motherwell 2-1 on the opening day of the season last weekend, and followed up with a thumping victory over Dunfermline, where Colombian hitman Alfredo Morelos grabbed the headlines with two goals.

Morelos is rewarded with a place in the starting line-up, partnering Kenny Miller in attack as Eduardo Herrera drops down to the bench this afternoon.

Wes Foderingham returns in goal after Jak Alnwick started against Dunfermline, with Lee Hodson at left back in place of Lee Wallace, whilst Fabio Cardoso, Bruno Alves and James Tavernier make up the rest of the defence.

Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans feature in the centre of midfield, with Daniel Candeias and Josh Windass providing width in Pedro Caixinha's 4-4-2.

Herrera is joined on the bench by backup goalkeeper Alnwick, as well as Danny Wilson, Jordan Rossiter, Jason Holt, Niko Kranjcar and summer signing Carlos Pena.

Meanwhile, Hibs are also looking for a third win in a week, having beaten Partick Thistle 3-1 in the league last weekend, and then hammered Ayr United 5-0 in the Scottish League Cup in midweek.

Neil Lennon will be the pantomime villain of the day as a former Celtic player and manager, and he has called on former Bhoys Efe Ambrose, Dylan McGeouch and Anthony Stokes in his starting line-up today.

Former Rangers right back Steven Whittaker starts on his return to Ibrox, whilst key midfielder John McGinn features in the line-up alongside summer signing Simon Murray.
