Rangers will take on Hibernian in a behind closed doors friendly on Tuesday according to a report by Glasgow Live

It is reported that first-team players are unlikely to play but it could be a good opportunity for fringe players to get noticed.

While speaking about defender Lewis Stevenson’s recovery from injury, Hibs manager Jack Ross revealed the details of the friendly against the Gers.

Ross is quoted by Glasgow Live as saying, “Lewis trained last Thursday and Friday and the condition he has come in from an injury is outstanding, we’ve got a bounce game on Tuesday that he’ll be able to play and that will be him ready to go.”

Glasgow Live report that the game will be against Rangers on Tuesday but the club are yet to confirm the fixture.

With Rangers playing Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday it is unlikely that any first-team players will be risked in a friendly.

But it could be an opportunity for some of the younger or out of favour players to show Steven Gerrard that they are worth taking a chance on.

Rangers outcasts Jordan Jones and George Edmundson could play despite each player currently serving an eight-game ban for breaking COVID regulations earlier this season.

It seems as though both players will remain at the club in the short term but it is unknown if the players have a long term future at Ibrox.

This friendly could be a chance for them to show Gerrard that they are still committed to the club and can be of use when their bans expire at the end of December.

The game could also be a chance for Ciaran Dickson and Leon King to get more game time after the youngsters made their Rangers debuts against Falkirk at the weekend.

The club is yet to release any information about the game but it will be interesting to see which players line up against Hibs.
