Rangers and Hibs have named their starting line-ups for their game at Ibrox as the Premiership returns after an international break.

The home side have a different man in charge than they had before the break as the Philippe Clement era begins with the Belgian taking charge of the team for the first time since replacing Michael Beale.

Hibs manager Nick Montgomery is also barely in the door at Easter Road and remains undefeated after his first five games, but he faces his first trip to Glasgow on Saturday.

They go into the game in seventh place with Rangers currently sitting in second spot.

Clement will be looking to make an early dent in Celtic’s seven point lead for at least 24 hours with the league leaders not playing until Sunday when they travel to Hearts.

He has kept faith with the mainstays of the team this season including captain James Tavernier, John Lundstram and forward Cyriel Dessers.

Jack Butland starts in goals behind Tavernier, Goldson, Souttar and Barisic with a midfield three of Lundstram, Raskin and Lammers supporting a front three of Sima, Wright and Dessers.

Todd Cantwell, Kemar Roofe and Dabilo all return and are named among the substitutes.

Montgomery has insisted his side won’t change their usual attacking approach and will look to take the game to the hosts.

And he has kept good to his word with an attacking line-up to start the game.

He starts with Marshall in goals behind Miller, Hanlon, Fish, Jeggo, Obita, Newell, Le Fondre, Youhan, Boyle and Vente.
