Steven Gerrard has made one change to the Rangers side that beat St Johnstone as the Gers prepare to face Hibernian at Ibrox in this year’s Boxing Day fixture.

Leon Balogun replaces Filip Helander after recovering from his recent injury while there is only room on the bench for Alfredo Morelos.

Confirmed on Twitter prior to kick-off, Ianis Hagi remains in the side after his goal against St Johnstone last time out.

Allan McGregor continues in goal with a defence of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Balogun and Borna Barisic in front of him.

In midfield, it’s Joe Aribo, Glen Kamara and Steven Davis while Ryan Kent, Kemar Roofe and Hagi lead the line against the Hibees.

The Gers have the chance to extend their Scottish Premiership winning run to 12 games with a win over Hibs.

Rangers dropped points for the first time this season when they drew 2-2 at Easter Road in September.

Morelos and Scott Arfield scored on the day that Rangers conceded their first league goals of the season.

Revenge will be on the minds of the Gers players as they look to make amends for September’s draw and they bring good form into the game after defeating St Johnstone 3-0 in their last outing.

Roofe may be the man to watch as he looks to continue his fine goalscoring record and keep the Light Blues well clear of their Old Firm rivals.
