Motherwell midfielder Keith Lasley returns to the squad for the visit of Rangers.

Lasley has served a one-match suspension following his dismissal against Hearts.

Steven Saunders (Achilles) is the only absentee for Stuart McCall's team.

Rangers manager Ally McCoist is hoping Matt McKay, Carlos Bocanegra and Alejandro Bedoya will all be available for the trip to North Lanarkshire.

Steven Whittaker is set to return for the clash at Fir Park after being out with a broken toe but Maurice Edu is suspended and Sasa Papac (illness), David Weir (hamstring) and Kyle Bartley (groin) are likely to remain on the sidelines.
