Glen Kamara suspended - Predicted Rangers XI v Brondby

Rangers will be looking to register their first win this season in the Europa League when they take on Brondby on Thursday night.

Anything other than maximum points would mean that Gers’ chances of progression have all but ended.

They will require a miracle from their remaining games to go through and would hope that other results go their way.

Even domestically, despite being at the top of the table, their recent form has been far from impressive.

They go into this game after a 1-1 draw against Hearts over the weekend and they were far from impressive in that contest.

Steven Gerrard will be looking for a positive response in what should be a winnable game for his Gers side.

The back five that started over the weekend is unlikely to be changed as Gerrard has trusted in this group of players.

They’ve been mainstays in his side since last season and are expected to play in this must-win game.

Nathan Patterson, despite all his impressive performances for Scotland, will still be waiting for a regular run in the first team.

Glen Kamara is suspended for this one, and his absence could see Gerrard play a 4-3-3.

Steven Davis will play on the tip of the midfield three and summer signing Juninho Bacuna should play in the free eight role along with John Lundstram.

This should give them much-needed balance and make the midfield robust along with offering fluidity in the final third.

Scott Wright is likely to make way for Kemar Roofe with Alfredo Morelos leading the line for Gers on Thursday.
