Rangers confirm starting XI for clash v St. Johnstone

Rangers have confirmed their starting XI for their Scottish Premiership clash against St. Johnstone on Saturday 28 January with four changes made.

Michael Beale decided to make four changes to his starting XI with the likes of Malik Tillman, Alan McGregor and Ryan Jack coming into the team to start against The Saints.

As confirmed on Twitter prior to kick-off, Beale decided also handed a debut to January signing Todd Cantwell who will be looking to get off to a lively start at Ibrox this afternoon.

Busy end to the month.

Beale confirmed that Rangers are talking to “three or four more” players having already signed Cantwell from Norwich City this month.

Nicolas Raskin and Morgan Whittaker are likely two of the other players Beale has alluded two with a potential surprise still lurking as deadline day approaches.

Ianis Hagi being back in the matchday squad after a year on the sidelines is a massive boost for the Light Blues and he’ll feel like a new signing himself in the coming months.

All of a sudden things are starting to look a lot rosier at Ibrox and the injury-plagued first half of the season finally seems to be coming to an end.

Adding the likes of Raskin and Whittaker to that mix leaves Beale with plenty of options to carry into the busy end of the campaign.

And talents like these are desperately needed if the Gers stand any chance of competing with Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
