STEVEN GERRARD has named his matchday squad for tonight's last-16 Europa League tie against Bayer Leverkusen.

The Ibrox side face a daunting test this evening after losing the first leg 3-1 in Govan back in March.

All of Rangers' summer signings are ineligible to play apart from Ianis Hagi, as they have not been included in the club's European roster.

The Romanian playmaker has been dropped to the bench for the clash at the BayArena, with former Hibernian winger Brandon Barker given the nod in midfield.

Elsewhere, Swedish defender Filip Helander has been handed his first competitive outing since the 2019 League Cup final, while Steven Davis comes in for the suspended Glen Kamara in midfield.

Other than these changes, it looks as though Gerrard has named a full-strength line-up to face the German Cup runners-up.

A host of youth players will make up the majority of the substitutes with Andy Firth, Ross McCrorie, Nathan Patterson, Jamie Barjonas and Lewis Mayo named on the bench alongside squad players Greg Stewart, Jordan Jones, George Edmundson, Scott Arfield and Hagi.
