STEVEN GERRARD has made three changes to his starting eleven for tonight’s Europa League play-off second leg against Ufa at the Neftyanik Stadium.

Kyle Lafferty and Andy Halliday are named on the bench after starting against Motherwell on Sunday while left-back Borna Barisic is ineligible to play this evening. Scott Arfield, Daniel Candeias and Ryan Kent all come back into the side to face the Russians.

In defence James Tavernier, Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson and Jon Flanagan will be given the task of protecting Allan McGregor’s goal and Rangers will be hoping to keep another clean sheet away from home having done so in previous qualifying rounds against Shkupi, Osijek and Maribor.

In midfield Ryan Jack, Ovie Ejaria and Arfield will start in the central area with Candeias and Kent featuring wide and providing service and support to Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.

RANGERS: McGregor, Tavernier, Katic, Goldson, Flanagan, Jack, Ejaria, Arfield, Candeias, Kent, Morelos
SUBS: Foderingham, Lafferty, Sadiq, Halliday, Ross McCrorie, Wallace, Middleton
