Giovanni van Bronckhorst could be ready to spring a surprise starter at Anfield after bigging up Alfredo Morelos’ qualities and hinting he is going to be in the XI alongside Antonio Colak to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

The Colombian forward started in the last UCL match v Napoli but was unable to make much impression on the Italians’ defence, but Gio may include him as well as the Croat for the trip to Anfield.

It is being viewed that van Bronckhorst wants to use Morelos’ mischief-making to attacking a vulnerable Liverpool defence, with the Colombian’s physical presence well-documented, and his ability to win fouls in the opposition half strongly noted.

Despite Colak’s stunning form since arriving from Greece, the Croat striker isn’t as well-regarded for pure presence, rightly or wrongly, and he may well find help in that area arriving in the form of the Colombian.

Gio said:

“The decision is not difficult because you always look at the opponent and choose the best option. Both are in really good condition.”

This appears to be a big hint that it will be the pair to get the nod which would certainly excite Rangers fans.

Guess we’ll find out at around 18:45.
