Rangers duo return

Allan McGregor and Kevin Thomson both return from hamstring injuries for Rangers’ Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Motherwell tomorrow.

Goalkeeper McGregor has missed the last two matches, while midfielder Thomson sat out Tuesday’s 3-0 win at Dundee United.

McGregor’s recovery gives Walter Smith another selection headache over Neil Alexander, while midfielder Pedro Mendes will be sidelined for another month.

Provisional squad: McGregor, Whittaker, Broadfoot, Papac, Weir, Davis, Thomson, McCulloch, Bougherra, Novo, Beasley, Edu, Miller, Fleck, Boyd, Lafferty, Naismith, Smith, Little, Wilson, Alexander.
