A general view of Ibrox Stadium ahead of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League match between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium on September 18, 2011 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers are back in action this afternoon as they host Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

Rangers starting line-up: McGregor; Tavernier, Katic, Goldson, Halliday; Kamara, Coulibaly, Davis; Candeias, Kent, Morelos.

Rangers substitutes: Foderingham, Worrall, Barisic, McCrorie, Grezda, Lafferty, Defoe.

The Gers need to respond after a 2-0 midweek defeat to Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup, and are back at Ibrox today to take on Kilmarnock.


Allan McGregor starts in goal as usual, but Nikola Katic and Andy Halliday come into the defence alongside James Tavernier and Connor Goldson.

Lassana Coulibaly is handed a shock start in midfield alongside Glen Kamara and Steven Davis, with Ryan Kent and Scott Arfield both out of action today.

Daniel Candeias and Ryan Kent feature out wide, supplying lone striker Alfredo Morelos in the Rangers attack, with Steven Gerrard keeping in his trusted front three.

Eros Grezda is named on the bench today as the Albanian winger attempts to make a first appearance for the Gers in almost three months after a battle with injury.

Borna Barisic is also on the bench, alongside Wes Foderingham, Joe Worrall, Ross McCrorie, Kyle Lafferty and Jermain Defoe as Rangers bid to get back to winning ways.
