Philippe Clement’s team made seven changes from the Rangers starting lineup against Ayr United

This afternoon, when Ayr United visits Ibrox for their Scottish Cup fifth round match, Rangers faces a well-known opponent.

Since assuming leadership in January, Scott Brown has been leading the Honest Men. Naturally, he will receive a very hostile welcome upon his return to Govan.

His “love for Rangers” will undoubtedly lessen when he plays for the team full-time because he will be reminded of how heartbreaking it is to fall short against his former rivals.

With their current form, Philippe Clement’s team should be able to handle whatever Brown and Ayr throw at them today.
Ben Davies and Ryan Jack are back for the Rangers, but Tom Lawrence will get a rest while Clement controls his playing time. Leon Balogun sustained a facial fracture against Livingston last weekend, so he is probably still out.

Seven changes to the starting lineup are anticipated, with Clement likely to make the most changes in the Scottish Cup.

Oscar Cortes and Mohammed Diomande come first.

Philippe Clement could begin his final two January transfer acquisitions with a home match against lower league opposition.

Oscar Cortes, a winger, joined on loan from RC Lens until the end of the season, while Mohamed Diomande, a new signing from FC Nordsjaelland, cost £4.3 million.

Although both have already appeared in a few games as substitutes, this is their chance to establish their worth right away.

In other news, Robby McCrorie, the goalkeeper, might be given a second straight Scottish Cup start to give super Jack Butland a break.

Today’s resting options for Cyriel Dessers, John Lundstram, Ridvan Yilmaz, and Ross McCausland mean that Fabio Silva, Nicolas Raskin, Borna Barisic, and Scott Wright, respectively, should be named in the starting XI lineup.

This is our Rangers lineup prediction for the afternoon match.
