After going with a change line-up for the Europa League victory over Lech Poznan in midweek, the Ibrox boss has returned to something close to his preferred starting XI today.

The team is as follows: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Helander, Barisic; Davis, Kaara, Arfield; Roofe, Morelos, Kent.

Here’s what the fans had to say on social media:

@stumain22: “Ooft, what a strong team! SG not messing around with @dundeeunitedfc. Would have preferred to see Roofe or Itten in place of Morelos. Hopefully Zungu gets more game time.”

@Reggie99600466: “Good to see Helander back in squad. Love the fact we've got cover for every position on the bench, each capable of bringing something different yet able to fit into the system.

@RangersSpares__: “Honestly. That bench would smash just about every team in Scotland. Only team they wouldn’t beat is our starting 11.”

@Colin_Morris81: “I’m meant to be decorating. I’ll be taking an extended tea break at 12. Get a decent result so I don’t need to add that to the grief I get from the wife when she realises the painting hasn’t been done. Thanks.”

@Blueblade56: “Ced the Ted deserved a start here...”

@Rninety6: “Probably because today’s front 3 deserve to play more than Itten does, not sure though.”

@ianwilson19711: “I want that mob crying and not wanting to come out at half time cos they’re 7 nil down.”

@GersnetOnline: “A shame Jack remains unavailable but that's a very strong starting XI & bench for what will be a touch match in Dundee at lunchtime.”
