Glasgow Rangers and Aberdeen go head-to-head later this week.

Rangers do not have to wait long for their next match, with Aberdeen coming to Ibrox on Wednesday evening for the  first of two clashes in quick succession between the sides.

The Gers started life under interim boss Graeme Murty in fine form but they have suffered back-to-back defeats against Hamilton Academical and Dundee and they will be desperate to get back to winning ways against a team currently two places and six points ahead of them in the table.

That will be easier said than done, but Rangers at least have home advantage for this clash, with the reverse fixture just a few days later, and if one of the two sides can win both games it will lay down quite a marker for the second half of the campaign.

Rangers need to make some changes, with centre-back Danny Wilson struggling recently and the Gers in desperate need of a return to fitness for summer signing Bruno Alves.

If the Portuguese international is back, he should slot in alongside Ross McCrorie, while there is a decision to be made up front with either Eduardo Herrera starting or the misfiring Alfredo Morelos keeping his place.

With all that in mind here is how we expect Rangers to line up against Aberdeen later this week:
