Three keys to a Rangers win as they face Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup

The Scottish giants must return to winning ways after two goalless games in succession.

Rangers will look to progress to the next round of the Scottish Cup when they face Kilmarnock at Ibrox this evening.

The Gers face a replay with Steve Clarke’s men following a 0-0 draw just over a week ago.

Steven Gerrard’s squad has been decimated by injuries and suspensions of late but some players will return tonight.

After slipping eight points behind Celtic in the SPL at the weekend, this competition now looks like Rangers’ best chance of silverware.

Ahead of the contest we look at three keys to a Rangers win…

Feed Morelos

The Colombian striker will return tonight having served two games of a three-match suspension.

As the ban only applies to league games, Morelos will miss out when Rangers face Hamilton at the weekend.


Since the striker’s suspension, Rangers haven’t scored a goal and his presence in attack has been missed.

The Gers talisman has 23 goals to his name this season and they will welcome his return tonight.

Avoid complacency

Gerrard was irked by his team at the weekend as he cited complacency among his players during their stalemate with St Johnstone.

The boss will hope that his players are at the races this evening as they go in search of their first win over Kilmarnock this season.

Rangers need to bounce back this evening and they will need to be on their game from the very first whistle.

Eamonn Brophy has been in fine form this season with nine goals.

He has missed a couple of games recently through injury but you can bet he will be bang up for this evening’s game.

Brophy’s goal proved decisive with Kilmarnock secured a 2-1 win over Rangers back in January.

Gerrards is now fully aware of the threat he poses and will need his back four on their guard.
