So with Liverpool arriving at Ibrox at long last to face Rangers, what home XI do we think Giovanni van Bronckhorst will select to do the job?

What Rangers side do we think will be picked to finally secure some points in this group?

McGregor in goals, it’s not even a debate.

In defence, it’s picking itself right now – Tavernier, Goldson, Davies and Barisic.

Midfield? Has to be Lundstram and Jack together – the best pairing we have.

Attacking midfield? These are where the choices for Rangers deepen. We have Arfield, Matondo, Roofe, Sakala, Kent, Tillman and Wright. Three of those are going to start, but who?

We think Matondo on the left, Arfield in the middle, and Sakala on the right. That’s right, we think no place for Ryan Kent, and a second half appearance for him if he’s needed. We’d be surprised if Tillman is in the XI.

Up front, it’s Colak. He will start.

So, your Ibrox Noise predicted XI?

McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Davies, Barisic; Jack, Lundstram; Matondo, Arfield, Sakala; Colak.

Which would leave a pretty decent bench:

McCrorie, King, Ridvan, Davis, Kamara, Kent, Tillman, Morelos.

Rangers need to get something tonight, and there’s no point in picking any backwards choices, we hope Gio agrees.

Bring it on!
