Glasgow Rangers will be preparing for their clash with NK Maribor at Ibrox on Thursday in the Europa League, however, they will be without six of their players for the clash according to the club’s official website.

Steven Gerrard’s side will know that they will be facing their toughest opponents in the competition so far, although they will feel confident that they can get a positive result against the Slovenian outfit.

The Light Blues have already defeated FK Shkupi and NK Osijek to reach the third qualifying round, however, the new Light Blues manager will be keen to see his side advance to the next stage as the club will be within touching distance of the Group games.

However, Gerrard will know it will not be an easy task against Maribor, especially considering that he has a number of players that could be unavailable for the clash.

Ryan Jack is one of those that is a doubt for the game after he had to leave the field early during their Scottish Premiership opener with Aberdeen at the weekend.

The midfielder received a knock during the game and is expected to undergo further assessments to see if he can feature.

“We told Ryan to stay at home for a few days after the knock he took at the weekend,” he told the club’s official website.

“He will be assessed further today by our medical team, and hopefully, we will have an update in the next 24-hours on how long he is going to be out.”

Gerrard also revealed that he had no fresh injury concerns ahead of the upcoming tie with Maribor, although new signing Borna Borisic will be unavailable after he featured against Rangers for Osijek in the previous round.

“Other than that, it’s just what you know – Declan John, Lee Wallace, Jordan Rossiter and Graham Dorrans. There are no fresh ones from the weekend,” he added.
