Left-back Foster comes in for striker Kyle Lafferty, the only change in personnel from the team which beat Motherwell 4-1 in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League at the weekend.

Vladimir Weiss also made his Champions League debut for Rangers, playing wide on the left in a cautious 5-4-1 formation while keeper Allan McGregor came back at the expense of Neil Alexander after serving a one-game ban.

Rangers (v Valencia): McGregor, Foster, Weir, Bougherra, Papac, Whittaker, Naismith, Davis, Edu, Weiss, Miller. Subs: Alexander, Fleck, Lafferty, Webster, Little, Wylde, Hutton.
