A fair few Rangers fans are worried about the prospect of taking on Hibernian at Easter Road tonight without Alfredo Morelos.

But I am quite confident Jermain Defoe, who will come in for his suspended club mate, will supply the goals which secure a first win for the Ibrox club in Leith in two years.

Defoe is 37 now, but he still wants to play all of the time and his been itching to get his chance to show what he can do in the first team.

His manager Steven Gerrard knows him well and knows what he can do. To be fair to the former England man, he has already shown what he can do.

He is a real fans favourite – something which is not easy to become at Ibrox – and it is no wonder Gerrard is keen to keep him beyond the summer.

He knows he needs experience as well as youth in his side and with Allan McGregor in goals, Steven Davis in midfield and Defoe up front he has that in every area of the park.

The youngsters at the club benefit so much from having somebody there who has been there, seen it and done it during their careers.

Rangers have to play a little bit differently against Hibs tonight with Defoe instead of Morelos up front if they want to get a result and move back to within two points of Celtic in the Ladbrokes Premiership table.

If they shell high balls up the park they will just come back to them. Defoe makes really good runs, turns people and scores for fun.

But Rangers have known they won’t have their top scorer since Sunday and I’m sure they will have been working on their tactics all week in training and can return to Glasgow with three points in the bag.
