Steven Gerrard’s Rangers face off against Hearts at Ibrox today in a substantial clash at the top of the Premiership table.

A win for the house side would see them move four points clear at the top, whilst a defeat would see them drop down to second with the Jam Tarts overtaking them.

The Gers beat third-placed Hibernian 2-1 prior to the international break, as Kemar Roofe and Alfredo Morelos’ second half objectives secured the three points.

We are predicting that he will make three changes to the side from the win over Hibs, with Jon McLaughlin, James Tavernier and Kemar Roofe all returning. Firstly, our company believe that McLaughlin will line up between the sticks. We released a post discussing why seasoned

shot-stopper Allan McGregor must be axed by Gerrard for this clash, and the previous Liverpool captain could observe that guidance and choose the&34-year-old today. At right-back, captain Tavernier might return in location of Nathan Patterson. The teenage defender supplied an assist versus Hibernian and recorded a SofaScore score of 7.6, which is why this is a tough call to make. Nevertheless, the experience(more than 300 appearances for Rangers)and leadership of Tavernier in a crunch game like this could be important for the Gers. In midfield, Joe Aribo, Glen Kamara and John Lundstram could maintain their locations in the middle of the park. We published a piece detailing Steven Davis’issues for Northern Ireland on international responsibility, which is why he might be enjoying on from the bench for today’s clash. Finally, Roofe could come in forScott Wright to line up left wing of the front 3, with Morelos through the middle and Ianis Hagi out on the right. The former Leeds striker came off the bench and scored against Hibernian and we previously discussed why he deserves to start. Wright and Hagi both caught the eye versus Hibs and it is not a simple call on who to drop out of the set. However, the latter created five chances in

contrast to Wright’s 4 which gives him the edge for this match, with the Romanian keeping his place in the side. AND in other news, Wilson must avoid Rangers nightmare over”distinct”monster compared to Yaya Toure …
