Rangers team line-up confirmed for St Mirren clash in Scottish Premiership at Ibrox

Steven Gerrard has named his starting team to face St Mirren with the Scottish Premiership title within sight.

A win at Ibrox against the top-six chasing Buddies will place Rangers on the brink of the prized silverware which could be confirmed if second-placed Celtic fail to win at Dundee United on Sunday.

The Ibrox fans are expectant and converged on the Stadium to welcome the players and management to the ground earlier on Saturday – however Rangers are expected to be without captain James Tavernier, midfielder Ryan Jack and forward Kemar Roofe who have been out injured recently. They have also been joined on the sidelines by defender Leon Balogun.

Steven Gerrard will also sit out this afternoon’s game having accepted a one-match ban from the SFA following the midweek win over Livingston.

Kick off at Ibrox is 3pm.
