Rangers struggle to 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock

In the last game before the International break Rangers dropped two points at Rugby Park on Friday night. James Tavernier’s second-half free kick levelled the scores after ex-Rangers striker Kris Boyd scored for Kilmarnock. The light blues made heavy going of the trip to Ayrshire and haven’t hit any real form going into next month’s Old Firm game. Danny Wilson was ruled out just before kick-off with a calf injury (having been named in the starting XI) and Joe Dodoo lasted 15 minutes before being carried off. New signing Joe Garner made his debut from the bench, replacing Dodoo, and had a frustrating 75 minutes.

Philippe Senderos has Rangers medical (apparently)

There were reports late on Friday that Swiss defender Philippe Senderos was underoging a medical ahead of signing for the club. Nothing has came of it yet although Mark Warburton said he hoped on Friday that something would be done in the next few days. If Senderos does sign it looks like his competitive debut could come at Celtic Park.

Could Rangers be headed to England?

The English Football League have started consultations with member clubs over adding a ‘fifth division’ to England’s senior set-up and there are reports that Rangers and Celtic could be invited to join. Plans are in place for a new division to kick-off for the 2019/20 season and clubs have been asked their opinions on the make up of the new league. There are obvious benefits for all parties involved and it will be interesting to see just where English clubs stand on it.
