Rangers have made two changes to their side for the Scottish Premiership clash against St. Mirren on Wednesday afternoon.
Steven Gerrard has taken the decision to drop Ryan Kent after his poor run of form ahead of the upcoming Old Firm derby.
Confirmed on Twitter prior to kick-off, Alfredo Morelos has been welcomed back to make his first start since his SFA charge and ban, with Filip Helander also starting in place of Leon Balogun.

The Bears have numerous injury worries, with their midfield missing some key players for the foreseeable future at Ibrox.
Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack have handed Gerrard an injury headache going into today’s clash, and also this weekend’s Old Firm clash with Celtic.
Ianis Hagi has stepped up in their absence recently, scoring three goals in his last three starts, and he has been given the chance to continue that form today.
With Celtic also playing Dundee United at the same time, Rangers will just be concentrating on picking up another important three points.
The gap currently stands at 16 points at the top of the Scottish Premiership, and it is vital that continues or is even extended to put more pressure on Celtic ahead of their trip to Ibrox.
Rangers are consistently proving that the pressure isn’t getting to them this time around, and picking up three points at the ground they lost their unbeaten record in all competitions only weeks ago would be the perfect message.
