Rangers have added Jon McLaughlin to their Europa League squad to replace Nnamdi Ofoborh.

The goalkeeper was left out of Steven Gerrard's squad for their Champions League qualifier against Malmo but has now been selected following midfielder Ofoborh's recent heart issue diagnosis.

McLaughlin joins Allan McGregor and Robby McCrorie as the third stopper in the squad as the Ibrox outfit prepare to face Alashkert this evening.

As has been the case on a few occasions in recent seasons, the Light Blues have been unable to name a full 25-man selection due to a lack of homegrown talent.

Three spots have been left open because Gers only five young Scots as opposed to the eight necessary to fill the squad.

Veteran striker Jermain Defoe has been left out and Nathan Patterson is listed in the B-squad.

Squad in full: McGregor, McCrorie, McLaughlin, Tavernier, Bassey, Helander, Goldson, Simpson, Balogun, Barisic, Jack, Hagi, Lundstram, Aribo, Kent, Davis, Itten, Morelos, Wright, Roofe.
