The following day Rangers had to come from behind and require extra-time to see off Aberdeen, emerging with a 2-1 victory.

The midweek fixture is sandwiched between cup requirements with both in action over the coming weekend in the Scottish Cup.

Last meeting

The teams met back in August when Rangers ran out 2-0 winners at Ibrox in the second league fixture of the season. It took until after half-time for the home side to go ahead with Antonio Colak grabbing the goal before Alfredo Morelos, off the bench secured the three points.

Team news

Kilmarnock will be without defenders Jeriel Dorsett and Ben Chrisene, midfielder Liam Donnelly and striker Innes Cameron. Lewis Mayo is ineligible and Fraser Murray is a doubt..

Rangers continue to miss a raft of players. Kemar Roofe rejoins the long injury list after injuring his shoulder in the win over Aberdeen. It’s a list which includes Antonio Colak, John Souttar, Ianis Hagi, Ridvan Yilmaz and Tom Lawrence. All should become available in the coming weeks but Steven Davis is out for the season. James Sands will come back into the squad.

Anything else?

Since Michael Beale has returned to the club, Rangers have won five of six league games and progressed to the League Cup final but do have a habit of going behind. They have not won back-to-back games at Rugby Park since the 2010/11 season. In those 13 visits since they’ve won four and lost five.
