Our writers have their say on who will start at Parkhead on Sunday and it's fair to say they are all championing major changes with the Europa League in mind.

With Thursday's mammoth game on the horizon expect changes and plenty of them at Parkhead.

Given it worked well in the Scottish Cup semi-final it'll be no surprise to see Jon McLaughlin start in goal.

Rangers are likely to revert back to a back-four so Tavernier, Goldson, Bassey and Barisic should start with Steven Davis and either John Lundstram or Glen Kamara slotting in beside him. My money is on Lundstram to get the nod given his physicality.

Middle to front, Scott Arfield may sit centrally with Fashion Sakala on the left and possibly Alex Lowry on the right for what would be an Old Firm baptism.

Leading the line is a man who struggled massively in the last trip to Parkhead but with Leipzig lying in wait, it could be a chance for Amad Diallo to shine.

Predicted line-up: McLaughlin, Tavernier, Goldson, Bassey, Barisic, Davis, Lundstram, Sakala, Arfield, Lowry, Amad

Van Bronckhorst will surely favour rotation on Sunday, to keep important personal as fresh as possible for Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg. 

Don’t be surprised if Jon McLaughlin starts between the sticks, especially given his showing last time out against Celtic. James Tavernier and Connor Goldson will play as ever, likely alongside Calvin Bassey and Borna Barisic.

The midfield should be made up of John Lundstram, Steven Davis and Scott Arfield. Lundstram was so integral to the team’s win earlier this month while Davis and Arfield are fresh having started on the bench in Germany. 

The front three could well consist of Fashion Sakala, Joe Aribo and Amad Diallo. It’s imperative that Ryan Kent is kept at fresh as possible for the visit of Leipzig. 

Predicted line-up: McLaughlin, Tavernier, Goldson, Bassey, Barisic, Lundstram, Davis, Arfield, Amad, Aribo, Sakala

Jonny McFarlane

While it seems ridiculous to advocate squad rotation for an Old Firm game when the title is still in sight, the looming spectre of a much more important game against Leipzig makes it essential.

Even if Rangers win at Parkhead, they'd need a consistent Celtic side to lose and draw in their remaining three games. It's so unlikely a scenario that Rangers must prioritise their very tangible shot at glory in the Europa League.

That means a return for Jon McLaughlin in goal, who many would suggest should be first pick anyway, while Leon Balogun slots into defence.

In midfield, Steven Davis is an obvious selection with Scott Arfield also trusted to add experience and guile on the right of the attack.

On the left, Amad Diallo should be given the chance to redeem himself from an awful performance on the last visit to the East End. With the world watching, it might help the youngster's focus to be in such a spectacular shop window.

Up front, Fashion Sakala is the only feasible option and therefore starts by default despite his obvious flaws as an attacking focal point.

Predicted line-up: McLaughlin, Tavernier, Goldson, Balogun, Bassey, Lundstram, Davis, Kamara, Arfield, Amad, Sakala
