but hope­fully Kyle will be avail­able now to help us.”

Mean­while, North­ern Ire­land vet­eran Gareth McAu­ley (right) is now fit and in con­tention to start for Rangers against Well to­day.

Af­ter ship­ping four goals in Moscow against Spar­tak in the Europa League on Thurs­day night, the 38-year-old could be thrown in for his first start since sign­ing from West Brom. Ger­rard said: “Gareth is here to chal­lenge the other three cen­tre-backs and he’s in my think­ing.

“It’s a match that suits him be­cause Mother­well go direct at times, try­ing to bom­bard your box with crosses and set-pieces.

“They go from back to front pretty quickly. So I’d have no qualms about play­ing Gareth whether it’s from the bench or the start. It’s his type of game.

“His pres­ence and size can cause prob­lems. He has scored many a set-piece goal in his ca­reer and that can be a tool for us.

“I wish I had him avail­able the last time we played Mother­well when they scored late on. He’d have been a big help.”
