Michael Beale has made four changes from last week’s League Cup final defeat as he names his starting line-up to play Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

Nicolas Raskin, Todd Cantwell and Ryan Jack all come in to a transformed midfield with Kamara, Lundstram and Tillman all dropping out.

Antonio Colak comes in for Alfredo Morelos to lead the line as they host the Ayrshire side on Saturday afternoon.

The home side are going into the game hoping to cut the gap at the top of the Premiership from nine points to six with league leaders Celtic not playing until Sunday.

They are also looking to get back to winning ways after suffering their first defeat under Beale in last week’s Viaplay Cup final.

Allan McGregor starts in goals behind captain James Tavernier who is on the right-side of a back four that also includes Goldson, Davies and Barisic.

Raskin, Jack and Cantwell make up the midfield looking to provide ammunition for Ryan Kent, Fashion Sakala and Colak.

Scotland international defender John Souttar returns from a long spell out with injury to claim a place among the substitutes.

But Tillman, who was a doubt for last week’s final, is not in the squad for a second league game in a row.

Kilmarnock meanwhile are second bottom of the division and are still looking for their first away win in the league this season.

Derek McInnes starts with Walker in goals behind Alebiosu, Taylor, Wright, Dorsett, Chambers, Armstrong, Power, Polworth, McKenzie and Doidge.
