Rangers are boosted by the return of Steven Naismith ahead of their game against Killie.

Naismith missed the Old Firm derby defeat to Celtic with a hamstring strain but will be fit for the fourth-round tie.

Maurice Edu (knee) could also be back in contention for Monday's clash at Ibrox, while Nikica Jelavic and Kirk Broadfoot remain on the sidelines.

Kilmarnock are waiting on international clearance for new signing Anssi Jaakkola ahead of the game.

The Finnish goalkeeper signed for the Ayrshire club this week but faces a wait to learn whether he will be available for the squad for the fourth round tie.

Boss Mixu Paatelainen has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to Ibrox.

Rangers (from): McGregor, Whittaker, Papac, Foster, Lafferty, Weir, Bougherra, Davis, McCulloch, Ness, Hutton, Weiss, Miller, Beattie, Kerkar, Fleck, Webster, Naismith, Edu, Alexander.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, Fowler, Wright, Sissoko, Gordon, Hay, Hamill, Taouil, Rui Miguel, Bryson, Kelly, Eremenko, Sammon, Silva, Clancy, Jaakkola, Invincibile, Kennedy, Pascali.
