Rangers will be forced to play reshuffled backline again as old Hibs foe back in reckoning
Hibs welcome back top scorer Martin Boyle for the clash with Rangers after he missed the win over St Johnstone through suspension.
Christian Doidge remains absent as he serves the second part of a two-match ban.
Kyle Magennis is still out with a groin problem, while Sean Mackie, Daniel MacKay and Melker Hallberg are short of match fitness after their respective injury lay-offs.
Boyle is expected to take the place of young forward Jamie Gullan, who depustised for the Australian internationalist last time out in Perth
Defender Leon Balogun is still not ready to return from his knock, meaning that Calvin Bassey – naturally a left-back – may need to fill in at centre-half again.
Filip Helander will return to full training next month after knee surgery and Nnamdi Ofoborh (heart issue) is also still missing.
