Team News: Rangers
Nnamdi Ofoborh (Heart Condition), Jon McLaughlin (Unknown Injury) and Ianis Hagi (Knee Surgery) aren’t available for Rangers gaffer Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
In all likelihood, The Gers should opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match featuring Allan McGregor, James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Leon King, Borna Barisic, John Lundstram, Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield, Charlie McCann, Ryan Kent and Antonio-Mirko Colak.
Team News: Dundee United
Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness worry for the Dundee United gaffer Liam Fox to be concerned with. Peter Pawlett (Achilles tendon surgery) won’t be in action.
We’re of the thinking that The Tangerines might elect for a 5-3-2 formation using Carljohan Eriksson, Ryan Edwards, Charlie Mulgrew, Ross Graham, Liam Smith, Aziz Behich, Jamie McGrath, Dylan Levitt, Ian Harkes, Glenn Middleton and Tony Watt.
In this game, Dundee United have the capability to find the back of the net against this Rangers outfit, but it isn’t expected to be enough to prevent defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 victory for Rangers at the end of the 90 minutes. It should be a decent one.
