Rangers are boosted by the news that Madjid Bougherra could return.

The defender - who has been out with a hamstring injury - trained on Friday and, if not involved on Saturday, will have a part to play against Dundee United on Tuesday.

Michael Higdon and Hugh Murray are suspended for St Mirren.

In-form striker Higdon begins a two-match ban while midfielder Murray is out for one game.

St Mirren (from): Gallacher, McAusland, Travner, McGregor, Potter, Thomson, Barron, Goodwin, Dargo, McLean, Van Zanten, Mair, Mooy, McGowan, Cregg, Barron, Samson.
