John Lundstram partners Mohamed Diomande in midfield with Todd Cantwell, Oscar Cortes and Scott Wright supporting striker Fabio Silva.

Rangers will be aiming to leapfrog Celtic this afternoon with a victory after Kilmarnock earned a point at Parkhead on Saturday.

A draw would see Rangers and Celtic level on points, but Clement's side could move two point ahead this afternoon should they manage to take all three points in Perth.

RANGERS XI: Butland, Tavernier, Goldson, Souttar, Barisic, Lundstram, Diomande, Cantwell, Cortes, Wright, Silva.

SUBS: McCrorie, Ridvan, Dessers, Lawrence, Sterling, Balogun, King, Raskin, McCausland.
