Rangers kick off their 2020/21 Europa League campaign against Lincoln Red Imps tonight.
The trip to Gibraltar to play on the minnows’ astro turf pitch needs to be professionally negotiated.
Rangers reward for winning would be a meeting with Willem II in the next round, but how will Steven Gerrard line up in pursuit of victory?
Rangers’ domestic defensive work has been record-breaking, and Gerrard may well try to limit disruption to his backline.
That said, Filip Helander may need to be carefully managed after being in Nations League action recently – which could hand George Edmundson an opportunity to impress in the back four.
Rangers were hit by injuries in the weekend 4-0 victory over Dundee United, especially in midfield.
Ally McCoist: Rangers hero
Ally McCoist is best remembered for his spell as a Rangers player. He was a prolific striker, scoring 382 goals for the club. His best season came in 1991/92, when he netted 49 goals in a single season.
Key part of Rangers’ success
McCoist’s goals helped Rangers enjoy sustained success. He won 10 league titles, and 10 domestic cups at Ibrox.
Rangers’ darkest moment
McCoist stepped in as Rangers manager at the club’s darkest hour. Forced to restart in Scotland’s fourth tier, McCoist led Rangers to back-to-back promotions to begin their journey back to the Premiership.

Rangers should have enough in attack and although Gerrard told the club’s official website that Alfredo Morelos is fit to play, a spot on the bench makes most sense for the striker.
