It is the first time the two sides have met since facing each other in the 2007-08 Champions League group stages when a famous 3-0 win for Walter Smith’s side in France was followed a defeat by the same scoreline in the home return.

Rangers have suffered a blow on the eve of the match with the news that defender Filip Helander will be out until at least December due to the knee injury picked up in the weekend win over St Johnstone.
