They will do so without winger Daniel Candeias, who has been a surprising omission from the 23-man squad.

The Portuguese midfielder has been a regular in the first-team since joining from Benfica in the summer of 2017, but will watch both matches against St Joseph's from the sidelines.

Rangers could only name a 23-man squad instead of the maximum 25 due to a lack of homegrown players.

Also missing are Jon Flanagan and Jamie Murphy as they each look to recover from injury.

The squad in full...

Goalkeepers: Allan McGregor, Wes Foderingham, Jak Alnwick

Defenders: James Tavernier, George Edmundson, Connor Goldson, Nikola Katic, Matt Polster, Borna Barisic, Andy Halliday

Midfielders: Ryan Jack, Steven Davis, Glen Kamara, Greg Docherty, Joe Aribo, Scott Arfield, Sheyi Ojo

Forwards: Greg Stewart, Alfredo Morelos, Jermain Defoe, Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie
