Rangers defender Filip Helander has been added to their Europa League squad after initially having been dropped to accommodate new signing Brandon Barker.

Swedish international Helander, 26, was surprisingly left out of the Gers lineup for their play-off clash against Legia Warsaw tomorrow.

Greg Docherty was also dropped from the squad list for Andy King who recently joined on loan from Leicester City.

Now, though, former Man City winger Barker has been left out of the squad and Helander has returned to the fold.

The latter signed for £3.5m from Bologna this summer to become Gers' most expensive signing of the new season.

He made his competitive debut against East Fife on Sunday afternoon and vowed he was "ready" for the Legia Warsaw tie.

It is believed Helander remains behind central pairing Nikola Katic and Connor Goldson who have been in hot form so far this term.

George Edmundson is the other centre-back who is in the reckoning for tomorrow night's game in Poland.

Meanwhile, despite Barker being ruled out, Rangers still have five options on the wings as well as a number of other midfield and attacking decisions to make.
