STEVEN GERRARD has named five changes to his Rangers side to face NK Maribor here in Slovenia this evening. 

From the side which defeated St Mirren 2-0 at Ibrox on Sunday, out go the suspended Jon Flanagan, the ineligible Borna Barisic, Ross McCrorie, Lassana Coulibaly and Ryan Kent, with their places taken by returning skipper James Tavernier, Andy Halliday, fit-again  Ryan Jack, Scott Arfield and Daniel Candeias.

That means, it’s a back five of Allan McGregor in goals, Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic and Halliday.

Jack, Arfield and Ovie Ejaria make-up the midfield, with Candeias and Jamie Murphy providing support to Alfredo Morelos.

On the bench for Gers are Wes Foderingham, Umar Sadiq, Lee Hodson, Ross McCrorie, Ryan Kent, Stephen Kelly and Glenn Middleton.

It’s a 7.15 UK time kick-off here in Slovenia – and the game is live on RangersTV outside the UK. Join Tom Miller and Iain Ferguson for full coverage.

RANGERS: McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Halliday, Jack, Ejaria, Arfield, Candeias, Murphy, Morelos.

SUBS: Foderingham, Sadiq, Hodson, Ross McCrorie, Kent, Kelly, Middleton.
