Rangers fans have called on manager Pedro Caixinha to drop summer signing Fabio Cardoso for tonight's trip to St Johnstone.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Rangers had a depleted central defence due to injuries but quite a few of their heavy hitters are available tomorrow.

Bruno Alves, Danny Wilson and David Bates are back in contention as they look to challenge Ross McCrorie and Cardoso, who started the 4-1 win over Hamilton last time around.

Alves is likely to return to the first XI following a calf problem and the only question seems to be who partners him.

Academy lad McCrorie, 19, conceded a penalty in that one but the Portuguese centre-back has looked increasingly erratic in recent weeks and Gers fans want him dropped tonight.

Caixinha paid some £1.3 million to bring the defender to Ibrox from Vitoria Setubal in the summer, according to The Daily Record, and it seems like Cardoso has a ways to go before he justifies such money.
