Our writers Derek Clark and Jonny McFarlane give their verdicts on who will start against St Mirren on Sunday.

Derek Clark

With Giovanni van Bronckhorst under increasing pressure, it's imperative Rangers take maximum points in Paisley.

Expect a strong side to take to the field albeit it's likely there will be changes. 

Filip Helander should replace Leon Balogun in defence and given Ryan Jack suffered a bang to the knee against Braga, it may be time for Steven Davis to return to action.

Going forward, Aaron Ramsey surely has to return to the side and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Scott Wright recalled on the right-hand side. Up top, it's a toss-up between Kemar Roofe and Fashion Sakala. My money is on Roofe to get the nod.

Predicted line-up: McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Helander, Bassey, Davis, Lundstram, Ramsey, Kent, Wright, Roofe.

Remarkably, the Scottish Premiership is now the third most important of Rangers' endeavours this season.

Given the game's proximity to the second leg of the Europa League quarter-final against Braga you'd expect some changes.

Van Bronckhorst's men look out on their feet and it would be remiss of the manager not to make an attempt at freshening things up.

Steven Davis has struggled with injury but he's now fully fit and could surely come in to take some of the burden from the manager's misfiring stars.

Davis' calm head and experience has been under-utilised by the Dutch manager, a mistake on his part.

Similarly, Filip Helander who is arguably the club's best defender needs to be introduced.

Going forward, Rangers are struggling for goals so it's important to ensure there is plenty of attacking intent.

A trio of Kent, Sakala and Roofe should provide a combination of pace, trickery and power.

Predicted line-up: McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Helander, Bassey, Davis, Lundstram, Aribo, Kent, Sakala, Roofe.
