Should Rangers deploy both Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos v Kilmarnock?

Rangers fans will be delighted that key attackers Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty are back in the squad on Wednesday night for the league match against Kilmarnock.

They have remarkably been included in the same starting XI just three times across all competitions so far this campaign by manager Steven Gerrard.

Morelos, 22, is considered the first-choice striker by most, with his return of 12 goals and eight assists so far this season proving that to be the correct decision.

But summer signing Lafferty is a proven talent too that can have a major role at Ibrox and so far Gerrard has used him as both a winger and central striker.

Rangers fans have rarely seen the combination work together in attack, but they both have plenty of goals in them and could be a handful for defenders.

The Light Blues are still trying to find the correct balance in their team and a two-man attack could be something to look at more frequently.

It would be a gutsy decision to start both through the centre against second-placed Kilmarnock, but they do have the home advantage and need to pick up three points.
