Steven Gerrard and his Rangers side will attempt to bounce back from the disappointment of League Cup semi-final defeat against Aberdeen when they face Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Wednesday.
The Liverpool legend missed out on a first senior final as a manager as a late header from Lewis Ferguson – son of Gers legend Derek – propelled Aberdeen to a 1-0 victory at Hampden.
And now Gerrard’s thoughts must turn back to the league, a competition in which his side are not excelling. Fifth after nine matches and eight points behind leaders Hearts, they have, at least, the distinction of being the division’s most prolific club.
Gerrard is set to have to cope without a number of potential regulars in his side, including young Croatian left-back Borna Barisic. Lee Wallace remains a long-term absentee in that area of the field.
Meanwhile, Scotland midfielder Jamie Murphy and Graham Dorrans are both sidelined.
Rangers will be boosted, however, by the return of joint-top scorer Alfredo Morelos after a ban prevented him from playing at the weekend.
Otherwise, on-loan Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is likely to be a player to watch for, having been in strong form lately.
Weekend defeat to Aberdeen has not shaken the belief that Gerrard has in his team achieving their goals this season.
While the manager shouldered some of the blame for the 1-0 Hampden loss, he urged his players to “step up” and show what they are capable of in the aftermath of the defeat.
Indeed, with just a couple of months looming until the January transfer window, the Liverpool legend has warned that changes will be made in the winter if the team’s form does not improve.
“I pick the XI, I brought in 14 players. It’s a disappointed dressing room but I’m here to take responsibility – my players, my tactics, my gameplan. If there are any fingers to be pointed let them point at me,” he said.
Kilmarnock have a strong squad open to them ahead of the trip to Ibrox.
There are, however, doubts over the availability of former Rangers man Kirk Broadfoot. He has been suffering from back trouble.
Rapid winger Jordan Jones made his return from a ban at the weekend, while Rory McKenzie was able to shake off injury to return.
Possible Kilmarnock XI: MacDonald; O’Donnell, Broadfoot, Findlay, Taylor; McKenzie, Tshibola, Power, Jones; Brophy, Stewart
Possible Rangers XI: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Worrall, Flanagan; Coulibaly, Arfield, Jack; Candeias, Morelos, Kent
