Rangers predicted lineup vs Shkupi: Ryan Jack and Ovie Ejaria start

Steven Gerrard manager of Rangers looks on during the UEFA Europa League Qualifying Round match between Rangers and Shkupi at Ibrox Stadium on July 12, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Glasgow Rangers will be hoping to book their ticket to the next stage of Europa League qualifiers after securing a win at Ibrox last time out.

Steven Gerrard manager of Rangers looks on during the UEFA Europa League Qualifying Round match between Rangers and Shkupi at Ibrox Stadium on July 12, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

After an encouraging win in his first competitive game in charge, Steven Gerrard will be hoping that Rangers can continue to show signs of progress rather than evoke memories of Progres when they take on Shkupi in the second-leg of their Europa League first round qualifier on Tuesday night.

A 2-0 victory at Ibrox puts the Gers in a decent position, but those who experienced the embarrassment in Luxembourg one year ago will not need telling that they cannot afford to become complacent in the second-leg. 

Gerrard should certainly play an extremely strong side in Macedonia, and we expect that there may possibly be just two changes to the team that won last week.

Scott Arfield is out of the game due to injury. His experience would have been beneficial in this kind of tie, especially with so many young players and fellow new signings around him. Ryan Jack may get the nod in his place as he is the kind of player that will relish the challenge if questions are asked.

Jack's presence also makes handing Ovie Ejaria an opportunity less of a gamble. The Liverpool loanee looked bright on his debut on Thursday and always looked keen to get on the ball, which was occasionally to his detriment. Having Jack and Ross McCrorie also in the middle of the park however, may give the youngster a little more freedom.

Daniel Candeais may perhaps return to the right flank with Josh Windass perhaps making way to the bench. However, with Gerrard sticking his neck on the line by moving the Portuguese to the middle for the first-leg and putting Windass on the wing, it may not be a great surprise if he decides to keep faith with that tactic as it was always going to take time to start paying off.

Elsewhere, Declan John may perhaps be considered in place of Jon Flanagan, but it may not be a huge shock if Gerrard keeps faith with the majority of the side that started the first-leg.

With that in mind, here is a look at how we are potentially expecting Rangers to lineup tonight...
