Scott Arfield has returned to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers starting eleven for today’s clash against Russian side FC Ufa.

As announced by UEFA, today’s full match squad is:

Starting XI – Allan McGregor, James Tavernier, Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson, Jon Flanagan, Scott Arfield, Ryan Jack, Daniel Candeias, Ryan Kent, Alfredo Morelos

Substitutes – Wes Foderingham, Lee Wallace, Umar Sadiq, Andy Halliday, Ross McCrorie, Kyle Lafferty, Glenn Middleton.

It looks like a return to a back four for Steven Gerrard, but a familiar looking team to what we’ve seen so far this summer.

Leading 1-0 on aggregate ahead of today’s crucial second leg, we will be hoping to see an improved defensive performance from Sunday’s match against Motherwell.

A place in the group stages of the UEFA Europa League is at stake, which would be massive for the club.

Let’s hope the lads can do themselves justice and get the job done after a long qualifying campaign.

Do you think Rangers will progress past FC Ufa today? Have your say in the comments below…

  • Rangers will do enough to get through tonight, either by a narrow win or maybe by a SCORING DRAW. Smart move by Gerrard having more bodies in the midfield to stifle their attacks. This also keeps Lafferty nice and fresh to put the fear of death into Scott Brown and Celtic on Sunday, when he is a cert to score!!
