GIOVANNI van Bronckhorst has majorly rotated his side and given a number of fringe stars the chance to impress against Hearts.

The Rangers boss admitted earlier this week that a much-changed side would face Hearts at Tynecastle this afternoon.

And Van Bronckhorst has stuck true to his word as a number of first-choice stars were out of the matchday squad for a rest.

Jon McLaughlin is in goal for Allan McGregor this afternoon, with a back four made of youngsters Adam Devine and Leon King alongside James Sands and Leon Balogun.

Steven Davis captains the Rangers team this afternoon, with Aaron Ramsey and Alex Lowry also in central midfield.

Scott Arfield, Cedric Itten and Amad Diallo make up the attacking trio.

RANGERS XI: McLaughlin, Devine, King, Balogun, Sands, Davis, Ramsey, Lowry, Arfield, Itten, Amad.

SUBS: McCrorie, Simpson, McCann, Ritchie-Hosler, Weston, McCausland, McKinnon, Miller, Fraser.

HEARTS XI: Gordon, Smith, Kingsley, Haring, Boyce, Mackay-Steven, Devlin, Cochrane, McKay, Simms, Sibbick.

SUBS: Stewart, Souttar, McEneff, Woodburn, Atkinson, Moore, Halliday, Halkett, Ginnelly.
