Mark Warburton has made two changes to his Rangers side for the game against Raith Rovers tonight, with Andy Halliday and Gedion Zelalem replacing Nicky Law and Dean Shiels.

Perhaps the most surprising decision, however, has been that Dominic Ball keeps his place in defensive midfield despite Halliday's return from suspension. The goalscorer against Falkirk, Billy King, is again on the bench alongside new signing Michael O'Halloran. Halliday is deployed in a midfield role further forward than normal, so it'll be interesting to see how he gets on there, and if Ball can keep his place going forwards.

The rest of the team is as expected, with the traditional back four and the usual front three. There's no place for either Jordan Thompson or Ryan Hardie on the bench, as new additions force them out of their place in the squad and into reserve matches instead.

Rangers starting line-up

Subs: Bell, King, O'Halloran, Forrester, Clark, Law, Shiels.
