Following a desperately poor UCL loss in Belgium, Rangers return to Premiership action as they welcome newly promoted Kilmarnock to Ibrox Stadium.

Rangers suffered a major fall from grace in their 2:0 loss against Union Saint Gilloise just two months on from their narrow defeat in the final of the Europa League.

Now returning to Glasgow, Van Bronkchorst´s side will be expected to get back on the saddle with a second league win of the season.

With the return against the Belgians to come on Tuesday, Van Bronckhorst will demand a big response from his side and a comfortable home win has to be expected despite the Ibrox side´s desperately poor showing in Leuven.

Rangers vs Kilmarnock Betting Tips - Rangers to win to nil/AH1 (-1.5)

Despite those European disappointments, Rangers can always be backed with confidence at Ibrox with 11 wins and just 1 loss from their last 13 home league outings.

Against Kilmarnock, Rangers have a dominant record, winning 5 of their 6 most recent meetings and 4 of the last 5 at Ibrox.

The visitors arrive in Glasgow not short of confidence following a solid point gained in their opener against Dundee Utd but given Rangers need to build form ahead of that vital second leg in the Champions League, we expect the hosts to pick up 3 points with something to spare and a clean sheet to boot.

Rangers Team News

Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent could come back into contention for the home side, who will be desperate to improve their creative outlet following a blunt display in Belgium.

New signings Ben Davis and Ridvan Yilmaz could make their first starts with Barisic and Sands potentially dropping out.

Ianis Hagi, Filip Helander and Kemar Roofe remain long-term absentees.

Derek McInnes could name an unchanged side to that which held Dundee Utd to an opening day draw last weekend. 

However, Oli Shaw and Kyle Lafferty lead the attack last week, and it remains to be seen if McInness opts for a more defensive setup here.
