Confirmed Partick Thistle v Rangers lineups: Miller starts, Pena on the bench

Rangers travel to take on Partick Thistle this evening.

Rangers are in league action again tonight, as they make the short trip to take on Partick Thistle at Firhill Stadium.

The Gers beat Dundee 4-1 last weekend, and manager Pedro Caixinha will be hoping to grab another win in the Scottish Premiership tonight.

Wes Foderingham keeps his place in goal, and will be protected by the usual four-man defence of James Tavernier, Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso and Lee Wallace.

Josh Windass, Ryan Jack, Graham Dorrans and Daniel Candeias make up the midfield, whilst Kenny Miller will support striker Alfredo Morelos in attack.

Morelos hit two goals against Dundee last week to continue his superb start to the season, with the Colombian hitting the ground running since his move from HJK Helsinki.

Despite scoring against Dundee, Carlos Pena is only on the bench, and is joined by fellow substitutes Jak Alnwick, Danny Wilson, Declan John, Jason Holt, Dalcio and Eduardo Herrera.

Meanwhile, Partick have made a terrible start to the season, claiming just one point from their first five games, with four defeats to their name.

Alan Archibald's men need to hit back tonight, and a win over local rivals Rangers could really kickstart their season.

The likes of Danny Devine, Jordan Turnbull and Niall Keown all start, as does ex-Preston midfielder Adam Barton and former Dundee United winger Blair Spittal.

Miles Storey will be relied upon for goals, with the likes of Kris Doolan, Conor Sammon, Steven Lawless and Stuart Bannigan all named as substitutes in a strong bench.
