Rangers team news: Morelos and Lafferty both available for Kilmarnock test

Rangers will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup last weekend with a home encounter against Kilmarnock on Wednesday.

The Light Blues were dumped out of the domestic cup in the semi-final and Steven Gerrard revealed after the game that he was not happy with the performance of some of his players.

He will now be looking for a reaction from his stars on Wednesday night at Ibrox, which has been a fortress for Rangers since his arrival in the summer.

However, he will know the game against Kilmarnock will not be easy, as Steve Clarke’s side currently sit second in the Scottish Premiership and have been impressing with their performances.

But, speaking in his press conference via the club’s official Twitter timeline, Gerrard has revealed he has some hugely positive news heading into the match.

He has confirmed that both Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty are back in the squad after both missing out on their Scottish Cup semi-final defeat.

The Colombian was suspended whilst the Northern Irishman was ineligible after appearing in the earlier stages of the tournament with Hibernian.

Gerrard did confirm that Borna Barisic has suffered a small setback, whilst Ovie Ejaria has a knock and will be a doubt for the Kilmarnock visit.

The Verdict:

Rangers will have been buoyed by the news that both Morelos and Lafferty are back available after Umar Sadiq struggled to make an impact against Aberdeen.

The Light Blues were certainly lacking the finishing touch in the final third at the weekend, however, with the duo back in the fold, the club will feel that they will be back in the goals once again.

Ejaria knock will have come as a blow, as the Liverpool loanee has been performing well for Gerrard’s side as he has been given a starting role in the team in recent weeks.
