After years and years of under-achievement, Rangers can seriously aim to win the Scottish Premiership this season.

After 17 games, the Gers are top of the League standings with 34 points, ahead of second placed Celtic on goal difference with one game in hand.

Gerrard’s side face off against Hibernian on Tuesday and they will remain on top of the standings if they manage to win the game. Hibs will also be fancying their chances of pulling off another upset after they recorded a 2-0 victory against Celtic last weekend.

Meanwhile, Alfredo Morelos will return to action for Rangers against Hibs. The Colombian international had to miss the last two games against Dundee and Hamilton after a suspension created by his sixth yellow card of the campaign was doubled by his red-card during the defeat against Aberdeen.

Ryan Kent, Jamie Murphy and Graham Dorrans are all set to miss the game through injury.

The Leith club are the only top-flight Scottish outfit which Gerrard has yet to face as Rangers manager.

Gerrard expects an exciting clash. As quoted by the official Rangers website, he said: “I think it is going to be a big challenge for us as they are a good team and they have got good players.

“They are an attacking team who like to pile men forward, and they play brave football, so it is an exciting one.

“I watched the game last season, and it was one of those crazy games where you just don’t know what is going on at both ends with both teams trying to win it going gung-ho.

“I wouldn’t mind scoring five again, but I wouldn’t want my team to concede five! I don’t predict it to be as similar as that but I do predict an attacking game and an exciting game as there are a lot of good footballers on the pitch, and I think the atmosphere will be intense.”
