Philippe Clement and Nick Montgomery have named their starting line-ups for the Rangers vs Hibernian game at Ibrox.

Premiership action returns on Saturday after a two-week international break as the race for the title takes centre stage again with Celtic currently a point ahead but Rangers having a game in hand.

The treble-chasing hosts are aiming to reclaim top spot after being leapfrogged by the Hoops two weeks ago when their game at Dundee was called off over a waterlogged pitch.

Three points against the Edinburgh side will see them go two points clear of their city rivals, who don’t play until Sunday, with eight games, including two Old Firm derbies, remaining.

They are also looking to get back to winning ways at Ibrox after losing their last two games in front of their home support with defeats to Motherwell and Benfica.

It has now been over a month since they last won in the southside of Glasgow and they will be wanting to put that right against a Hibs side who haven’t lost in their last six league games.

Montgomery’s side got back into the top six with a win over bottom side Livingston just before the break.

A similar result in Glasgow could prove vital in their quest to be in the top-half when the split takes place in two weeks time.

They are currently two points ahead of seventh placed Dundee who have a game in hand.

Clement has started with Jack Butland in goals behind a back four of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, John Souttar and Borna Barisic.

John Lundstram anchors a three man midfield beside Mohamed Diomande and Todd Cantwell with a frontline of Scott Wright and Fabio Silva playing either side of Cyriel Dessers.

Hibs have David Marshall in goals behind Chris Cadden, Will Fish, Rocki Bushiri and Jordan Obita.

Neco Triantis and Joe Newell in midfield with Elie Youan, Emiliano Marcondes and Myziane Maolida looking to supply the ammunition for Adam Le Fondre.
