boots like dr martens Rangers vs Aberdeen
New Rangers signings Sean Goss, Jamie Murphy, Jason Cummings and Russell Martin will have a second go at making their debuts when Aberdeen visit Ibrox on Wednesday.
The January recruits were expected to make their Gers bows during Sunday’s Scottish Cup clash at Fraserburgh but the game was postponed due to a frozen pitch.
They will now join returning loanees Andy Halliday and Michael O’Halloran in Graeme Murty’s squad for the Dons clash but Carlos Pena has gone back to Mexico.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge,” on loan Nottingham Forest striker Cummings said. “I like a bit of pressure and expectation to win. My character fits perfectly to playing for Rangers.
“Rangers create loads and loads of chances so I’m just going to be hanging about the six yard box looking to tap them in.
“Getting more game time was one of the main reasons for coming here. It’s no fun sitting in the stand or on the bench.
“I know I should be playing. I don’t want to be wasting away down there, so when I heard Rangers had come in I couldn’t turn it down.”
Team newsBruno Alves (calf) and Ross McCrorie (foot) have joined Lee Wallace (hernia), Ryan Jack (knee), Graham Dorrans (ankle) on the casualty list.
