World News – GB – Injured Ranger duo recalled to starting line-up for visit to Ross County


Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has been called up to Rangers’ starting XI for the first time in five games as he recovers from a calf injury

Jack’s absence gave Glen Kamara, Scott Arfield and Steven Davis the opportunity to impress but the latter took a rest for the Ross County tour

Jack isn’t the only player to come back from injury either, with Nigerian international center-back Leon Balogun also having the chance to impress

Balogun, 32, has not started a Rangers game since visiting St Johnstone in mid-October and the defender will have his chance after encouraging performances early in his Ibrox career

Rangers goalie Jon McLaughlin has also been recalled to the starting lineup for the game against the Staggies

The big plug, 33, hasn’t been seen since Rangers lost two points to Hibernian with the form of legendary Rangers goalie Allan McGregor keeping the former Hearts man out in the meantime

But McLaughlin will look to impress between the sticks today as he looks to strengthen his initial form in a Rangers jersey

The only other change from the squad that beat Galatasaray 2-1 on Thursday night is the inclusion of dynamic winger Jordan Jones

Northern Ireland international Jones missed Rangers’ scoreline in 5-1 win over Motherwell and was drafted with Ianis Hagi dropped

Here’s how some Rangers fans reacted to the starting lineup for the Scottish Premiership’s clash with the county:

It’s good that Balogun and Jones have more playing time Good team A much stronger team than last year Imo
