Rangers will be jetting off to Slovakia this morning with a huge crunch game against Maribor in their Europa League third-round qualifier second-leg. The fans are keen to have Lassana Coulibaly, Ryan Jack and Scott Arfield available and Steven Gerrard has been speaking to the Rangers website about the trio.
Steven Gerrard hopeful he will have Jack, Coulibaly & Arfield fit for the trip to Maribor.

So far, Steven Gerrard has taken Rangers by storm. The former England and Liverpool captain is yet to lose a game in his first job in senior management and he’s currently just three more games away from a spot in the Europa League group stages. If the 38-year-old can get them into Europe properly then he’ll be a hero in the eyes of the fans, however, it won’t be easy and he’ll need his midfield trio available if that is to happen.
Ryan Jack looks to be back in contention after missing the first leg against Maribor and the Scottish Premier League clash against St Mirren with a concussion whilst Lassana Coulibaly should be available after hobbling off against St Mirren. Meanwhile, Scott Arfield should also be back after being rested on the weekend against the Scottish Premier League new boys.
