Jason Holt has returned to the Rangers side, but only for a spot on the bench as Mark Warburton names an unchanged side to face Kilmarnock.

Jordan Thompson also makes a return among the substitutes, as Michael O'Halloran and Billy King miss out through being cup-tied. Dominic Ball again continues in defensive midfield. with Andy Halliday pushed further forwards and Gedion Zelalem in the other midfield spot.

The back four and front three are the usual, so it looks like Mr Warburton is putting his faith in the tried-and-trusted to get to the next round of the cup and beat top-flight opposition at the second time of asking. For Kilmarnock, Kris Boyd is on the bench while Jig has moved Stevie Smith back in defence for the game. Hooray!!!

Rangers starting lineup: Foderingham; Tavernier, Kiernan, Wilson, Wallace; Ball, Zelalem, Halliday; Waghorn, Miller, McKay.

Subs: Bell, Forrester, Thompson, Holt, Clark, Law, Shiels.

Kilmarnock starting lineup: MacDonald, Smith, Balatoni, Findlay, Hodson, McKenzie, Slater, Dicker, Obadeyi, Kiltie, Magennis
