Rangers vs Kilmarnock team news

Rangers

Just when it looked like Rangers might be close to catching up to Celtic at the top of the Premiership standings, Celtic won the Glasgow derby as the two teams met to close 2023 this Saturday. Rangers are still in a solid spot since they are eight points behind Celtic with two games in hand, but they did miss a good chance to put even more pressure on their fierce rivals.

When it comes to team news, Danilo, Steven Davis, Ryan Jack, Tom Lawrence, Kemar Roofe, and Nicolas Raskin are injured, while Leon Balogun has to serve a suspension.

Predicted LineupButland – Tavernier, Souttar, Goldson, Yilmaz – Sterling, Lundstram – McCausland, Cantwell, Sima – Dessers

Kilmarnock

With four wins and two draws in the last six games in Premiership, Kilmarnock have been in great form to close out last year, but their first match in 2024 will be a tough one as they travel to Glasgow to meet Rangers, who will want to get revenge for the loss earlier this season in Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, Innes Cameron and Kyle Magennis are on Kilmarnock's injury list at the moment.

Predicted LineupDennis – Deas, Findlay, Wright, Mayo – Kennedy, Watson, Lyons, Armstrong – Watkings, Vassell

Confirmed Rangers vs Kilmarnock lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kick-off.
