Mark Warburton has handed starts to midfield veterans Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar as his side look to make it four wins out of four in the League Cup group stage vs Stranraer at Ibrox.

Barton has only had one short cameo so far, while Kranjcar has been involved slightly more. Jordan Rossiter could also be in line to make his first appearance from the bench.

Andy Halliday completes the midfield three, although there's no room for Josh Windass or Matt Crooks. The defence is familiar as ever, and Barrie McKay also starts the game as he did the previous three, partnered up front with Martyn Waghorn and Harry Forrester. New signing Joe Dodoo, who scored on his debut last time out, also gets a spot on the bench.

Rangers starting lineup vs Stranraer

Foderingham; Tavernier, Wilson, Kiernan, Wallace; Barton, Kranjcar, Halliday; Forrester, Waghorn, McKay.

Subs: Gilks, Hodson, O'Halloran, Rossiter, Miller, Dodoo, Hill.
