The team news is in from Dingwall as Rangers travel from Ibrox to face Malky Mackay’s Ross County.
Searching for their first Scottish Premiership win of the campaign, Mackay’s team face a tough assignment against the Scottish Premiership champions. County hand Ben Paton a debut in midfield while his brother, Harry, misses out. The Ibrox side have named a strong XI, with regulars Alfredo Morelos, James Tavernier and Steven Davis all starting.
Mackay said of the game: “It’s a very tough prospect, the champions of the country and a very good team. It will absolutely be a tough one for us but one that we are really looking forward to. We are looking forward to getting a larger crowd into the stadium as well and it is going to be a really tough test.
“There will be time when you will be out of possession and you have to be calm and be relaxed when the other team has the ball. It is talking in the room where we do the clips, it is doing various drills on the pitch.
“It is just gradually getting the guys to work when they don’t have the ball, make sure they are calm and are in a good shape and knowing that when we get it back we are going to try to keep it.”
Here are the teams in Dingwall.
