Rangers boss Steven Gerrard brought Coulibaly to Ibrox last summer.

Lassana Coulibaly has become the latest Rangers player dropped to the reserves.

Coulibaly was named in the Rangers second string XI to face St Johnstone on Monday afternoon - alongside first team regular Glenn Middleton and January signings Glen Kamara and Matt Polster.

The Mali international has appeared 27 times for Steven Gerrard's side this season, but has only registered 71 minutes of senior football in 2019.

He played the final four minutes of Wednesday's win at Aberdeen, but was an unused substitute in the 0-0 draw at Kilmarnock three days later.


Nikola Katic, Jon Flanagan and Gareth McAuley are among the other Rangers players to have featured for the reserves in recent weeks and months, although none are present in Perth.

St Johnstone's side contains the former Rangers players, Cammy Bell and Michael O'Halloran.

Should Rangers try to keep Coulibaly when his loan spell ends this summer?
