Glasgow Rangers take on Hearts in the Ibrox side's first Scottish Premiership game since Pedro Caixinha was dismissed.

Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha looks on during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium on August 12, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers travel to face Hearts in their first game since Pedro Caixinha was dismissed after just seven months in charge at Ibrox, with Graeme Murty in caretaker charge of the Gers for the game at Murrayfield.

With the writing seemingly on the wall for Caixinha, and with a number of injuries and suspensions to contend with, it would be no surprise if Murty made a number of changes to try and inspire the kind of form he oversaw during his previous stint as caretaker.

The first, and perhaps most notable change comes up front. Kenny Miller was frozen out during the latter stages of Caixinha's tenure, but his experience could be beneficial as Rangers try and get themselves back on track, and so, it may not be a big surprise to see the veteran return and reignite his partnership with Alfredo Morelos. 

Meanwhile, Danny Wilson is another player who Caixinha did not pick often who may come in with Bruno Alves suspended after the retrospective ban he received following the Scottish League Cup semi-final at the weekend.

Graham Dorrans limped off in the early stages of the midweek draw against Kilmarnock, and Ryan Jack was sent off in the game, so Jason Holt keeps his place and Jamie Barjonas comes in in a 4-4-2 system.

Murty will undoubtedly want to use some of the youngsters he has worked closely with in recent times, but he may also feel that this stint as caretaker may become an audition if he performs well, so he may not throw too many prospects in there straight away.

Here is the lineup we expect in full...
