Hibernian v Rangers preview

Manager Pat Fenlon has a near full-strength squad to select from as

he prepares for his home debut. Midfielder and club captain Ian

Murray this week underwent a scan on his injured hip, which came

back clear, but he remains out. Striker Garry O’Connor recovered

from illness to play in the match at Motherwell, which was

abandoned at half-time, and is fully fit. Kyle Lafferty has been

rated doubtful for Rangers with a back problem. There is also a

question mark over defender Kyle Bartley who has a chest infection

but he has a better chance of making the trip to Easter Road.

Defender Carlos Bocanegra and full-back Lee Wallace are both in

contention after recovering from injury but winger Sone Aluko is

suspended. Hibernian (from): Stack, Hart, Towell, O’Hanlon, Hanlon,

Sproule, Wotherspoon, Palsson, Osbourne, Scott, O’Connor, Sodje,

Galbraith, Griffiths, Agogo, Brown, Stevenson, Stephens, Booth,

Thornhill. Rangers (from): McGregor, Whittaker, Bocanegra, Goian,

Broadfoot, Davis, Edu, Bedoya, Hemmings, McKay, Fleck, Lafferty,

Jelavic, McCulloch, Alexander, Bartley, Wylde, Wallace, Bendiksen.
