View: ‘Sensational’ ace to be axed in 2 changes – Predicted Rangers XI v St Johnstone

In the Rangers’ SPFL match against St Johnstone on Sunday afternoon, Philippe Clement is not expected to make many changes to his starting lineup. The Gers defeated Ross County 3-1 on Wednesday to tie Celtic at the top of the table on points, while St Johnstone is currently 10th in the standings after winning just once in their last nine games across all competitions. The manager may choose to stick with his starting lineup after such a strong showing this week, but there are some crucial decisions to make in some key positions at the same time.

Rangers’ defense under Philippe Clement has been excellent.

If Jack Butland is healthy, he will start in goal because he has been outstanding in net this season and is without a doubt the best.

In defense, Connor Goldson’s spot in the center of defense is assured by his consistently excellent play, while James Tavernier, who recorded three assists against Ross County, is playing at the peak of his game.

While Ridvan Yilmaz continues to excel at left-back to maintain his spot ahead of Borna Barisic, John Souttar scored a goal on his own and has been playing well, so it seems likely that he will keep his spot in the team. Leon Balogun is expected to be available to return from a facial injury.

John Lundstram, who has become a vital member of Clement’s midfield, ought to start. Tom Lawrence and Ryan Jack, on the other hand, are enrolled in personal fitness regimens, so it is unclear when they will be available. Mohamed Diomande, who has impressed since joining in January, should be able to make his first start in the SPFL as a result.

Oscar Cortes can now personalize the shirt.

On the right wing, Ross McCausland is playing brilliantly right now and should start ahead of Scott Wright in the attack. At number ten, Todd Cantwell has recovered from a difficult start under the manager to become a vital member of the team.

The left wing position could be claimed with Abdallah Sima sidelined due to injury. Rabbi Matondo has not played well lately; he was substituted at halftime in midweek despite being called “absolutely sensational” in the first half.

Oscar Cortes has had a strong season since joining in January, so this should give him the opportunity to start from the beginning. With another strong performance, he might even win the shirt. Cyriel Dessers, up front, should have scored five goals, but he only managed two, so he should still be starting.
