Foderingham – Hasn’t really done much wrong in recent weeks, still don’t think he’s the answer but he keeps his place.

Hodson – It’s time for Tavernier to have a seat on the bench, he’s been a shadow of the payer he was last season, his recent performances just haven’t been good enough.

Hill – Again hasn’t put a foot wrong in recent weeks and has used his experience, his lack of pace is a huge concern, however with no real alternatives he keeps his place.

Wilson – I think he’s been the best of a bad bunch this season, again pace is an issue but again who else is there?  If he’s fit he should start.

Wallace – Still not performing at the level he should be, did well for the assist the other night and we need to see more of that from him, a captain has stand up and be counted in games like this.

Halliday – Has been superb since the Barton fiasco, almost seems like he’s got a new purpose about him, lets hope he replicates his performance in the semi last season.

Kranjcar – Some will question his inclusion however imo he has been different class in the past few games.  His range of passing and vision is on another level to anyone in the league, we need to get him on the ball and let him dictate.

Windass – Again was tough to leave Holt out of the starting 11 however against Caley I thought he was poor and too many times in games he goes missing and the game almost passes him by, this isn’t the game for passengers.  Windass has looked superb and will provide more direct and better runs, he will also link better with Niko.

Waghorn – Been slightly off the boil since the injury, however his pace and energy is something we need and hopefully he can put in a performance we all know he’s capable of.

Garner – Another tough decision and some will want Miller to start after his winner against Caley and no one can questions is attitude and commitment.  However, far to often the other night he tried to get too involved and was back deeper than Halliday and Niko leaving us with no one in the box.  Garber for me will provide a better focal point and this could provide him the opportunity to start showing why we paid £1.5m for him.

Forrester – Surprised he hasn’t started more games recently and with McKay really off form it’s time to give Harry another crack at the whip.  Not sure what is wrong with McKay these days but against Caley he almost seemed afraid to take his man on, electing on almost every play to cut inside and find the easier 5 yard pass. 

Fuck I'm glad ur no the manager.

Isn't Wilson suspended for this game?  Also believe we have another player who is suspended?

I know we state our preferences but wouldn't be surprised if the manager surprises us with his starting line-up.

You've left poor Danny Wilson out while everyone else you've given funny names.

Is that because he replaced Kiernan :pipe:...:wink:

Warburton's  plan A is far too predictable and plays into tims high press game.If he goes with type then I fear the worst and feel Rangers must go with a back 5 playing long till tims run out of steam.Then our young midfield of Halliday, Holt and windass will out run them . Rangers must show respect to a team +18 goals in the league to our +0 and I feel if Warburton doesn't use a plan B in this game it may cost him his job . I know it seems like a very negative post but I'd say it's realistic and Walter Smith put tims to the sword many a time using these exact tactics.

Team full of legs.. went for Wilson and Hill as I feel Kiernan bottled it last game v them and Senderos not inspiring me at all...Feel like Hill and Wilson will at least have the stomach for the fight if nothing else...Bring on McKay and Kranjcar later on in the game...when they r tired so McKay can run at them and Kranjcar can find more space to play

I'm the same but how can we drop Holt ?...I like Kranjcar but he got a bit too excited last time and we could do with legs...keep him for 60 mins when there is more space for him to play

I'd go for this. Dodoo and Windass deserve their chance, whereas Waggy and McKay deserve to be dropped. If he wants to use the squad on merit then this is the time to prove that.

Picking Sinclair at left wing would really surprise they cunts

I think people underestimate how badly our play was affected by having Barton and Kranjcar in the same midfield. An energised midfield changes things big time for me.

This isn't the team I want but this is the team that'll start I'm guessing - 

Gilks

Tav, Kiernan, Hill, Wallace

Halliday, Holt, Kranjcar

Waghorn, Miller, McKay
