Jamie Murphy is a notable absentee to face Osijek tonight as Steven Gerrard changes the Rangers team for the second leg.

With Rangers winning 1-0 from the first leg in Croatia, Murphy has been left out in favour of Ryan Kent taking his place on the left wing. Daniel Candeias lines up on the right wing with Evie Ojaria in the number 10 role.

Glenn Middleton, promoted by Gerrard to the first team today, makes the bench, as does Umar Sadiq, who bagged a goal against Wigan in the recent friendly. Scott Arfield also returns from injury, but Ojaria is preferred to him in midfield. Alnwick is the backup goalkeeper instead of Foderingham, and Josh Windass has not yet regained his place in the starting lineup.

The full team is as follows:

Rangers team to play Osijek: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Flanagan; Jack, Coulibaly; Candeias, Ojaria, Kent; Morelos.

Substitutes: Alnwick, Halliday, Arfield, Windass, Middleton, Murphy, Sadiq
