Rangers take on Aberdeen at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership this evening.

Rangers starting line-up: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, McAuley, Flanagan; Jack, Coulibaly, Ejaria; Middleton, Candeias, Morelos.

Rangers substitutes: Foderingham, Worrall, McCrorie, Halliday, Rossiter, Grezda, Lafferty.

The Gers beat Hearts 2-1 on Sunday to go top of the Scottish Premiership table, and will be hoping to stay there with a win over Aberdeen at Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard needed to make changes tonight in order to freshen his side up, and he has done just that, but has kept Allan McGregor in goal this evening.

James Tavernier and Jon Flanagan line up as the full backs, with Gareth McAuley and Connor Goldson continuing as Gerrard's centre back partnership having played at Hearts.

Ryan Jack is recalled to sit in front of the back four, and he will be aided by Lassana Coulibaly and Ovie Ejaria in midfield, with Scott Arfield unavailable after his red card on Sunday.

Glenn Middleton is recalled to the side on the left wing at the expense of Eros Grezda, whilst Daniel Candeias will play on the right, supporting lone striker Alfredo Morelos in attack.

Grezda is named on the bench tonight, alongside Wes Foderingham, Joe Worrall, Ross McCrorie, Andy Halliday, Jordan Rossiter and Kyle Lafferty.
