Fashion Sakala starts for Rangers in Old Firm derby

Chipolopolo forward Fashion Sakala Jnr has been named in the starting lineup for FC Rangers for the Old Firm Derby. 

Rangers boss Michael Beale has made two changes to the team that beat Motherwell 3-0 to his side for this afternoon’s clash with rivals Celtic. 

From Wednesday evening’s victory over Motherwell, Glen Kamara and Fashion come into the starting XI with Ryan Jack and Alex Lowry dropping to the bench.

Sakala has started three of the last four games since Beale was named head coach. 

The Zambian international has scored two goals and made one assist in the last four Scottish Premiership encounters. 

That means Rangers start at Ibrox with Allan McGregor in goal and a back four of James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Ben Davies and Borna Barisic.

John Lundstram, Glen Kamara and Malik Tillman are in midfield, with Fashion Jr and Ryan Kent supporting striker Alfredo Morelos.

On the bench this afternoon are Jon McLaughlin, Ryan Jack, Antonio Colak, James Sands, Scott Wright, Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield, Leon King and Adam Devine.

Kick-off at Ibrox is 14:30 Central African time. 

RANGERS: McGregor, Tavernier, Goldson, Davies, Barisic, Lundstram, Kamara, Tillman, Sakala, Kent, Morelos.

SUBS: McLaughlin, Jack, Colak, Sands, Wright, Roofe, Arfield, King, Devine.
