Rangers team news: Ovie Ejaria set to return to squad for St. Mirren encounter

Rangers will look to put a disappointing draw to Kilmarnock earlier in the week behind them when they meet St Mirren on Saturday.

The Light Blues will travel to the Paisley 2021 Stadium for their Scottish Premiership lunchtime fixture.

Steven Gerrard’s side currently find themselves in fourth place, however, they are a further eight points behind leaders Heart of Midlothian, although they do have a game in hand.

Despite their rather poor form in domestic football, the Ibrox outfit will feel confident about getting a result against St. Mirren, as their opponents sit just off the bottom with just four points this season.

And, according to the club’s official Twitter account, it appears that they will be able to recall one of their key men to the squad.

Gary McAllister held the press conference, in Gerrard’s absence, and revealed that Ovie Ejaria is back available and will be in the squad for the trip.

The Liverpool loanee missed the game against Kilmarnock with an ankle knock, however, it appears he has overcome that problem.

McAllister is also revealed that Kyle Lafferty is expected to be available, whilst Borna Barisic is edging closer to a return following a thigh injury.

The Verdict:

Rangers will be pleased to be able to welcome Ejaria back into the line-up, as he has been a mainstay in the side.

The Liverpool loanee has played in eight of their 10 Scottish Premiership matches so far this season, having come up with one assist in those appearances, and the Light Blues will hope to see him firing when he returns.

Gerrard will know that this game is a perfect opportunity for his players to kickstart their domestic season once again, whilst also preparing themselves for their potentially tricky trip to Russia on Thursday when they meet Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.
