It's a bold call from Mark Warburton

Mark Warburton has made the decision to finally drop Rob Kiernan and Andy Halliday from the Rangers team as they face Ross County at Ibrox today.

While we'll imagine that the manager will spin it as rotation in a busy week, it seems pretty clear that the two have suffered from their poor form. Kiernan, in fact, does not even make the bench.

The bad news, of course, is that means that Philippe Senderos and Jason Holt come in in their place. Martyn Waghorn also misses out, with Joe Garner starting.

It looks like that means Emerson Hyndman in a holding midfield role, which might be a risk given his ability to get goals and assists. Curiously, Senderos is preferred to Danny Wilson, who's on the bench. Is it really worth taking such a gamble to start him rather than have two left-footed centre-backs?

Joe Dodoo also makes a return to the squad for the game.
