Rangers welcome St Johnstone to Ibrox in the Scottish top flight on Saturday afternoon.

The Gers have begun the new campaign with a pair of domestic victories and dramatically overhauled a 2-0 deficit against Union Saint-Gilloise on Tuesday night, advancing to the final round of Champions League qualifying.

St Johnstone were in the midst of European qualification this time last season. However, those ultimately unsuccessful continental commitments impinged on their league form. Yet, despite losing eight Premiership games in a row at the end of 2021, the Saints managed to avoid relegation - just.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst was able to welcome Alfredo Morelos back into the fold last weekend, bringing the Colombian forward on for a goalscoring return against Kilmarnock.

Fellow striker Kemar Roofe and defender Filip Helander are inching closer to full fitness but remain sidelined alongside the long-term absentee Ianis Hagi.

St Johnstone team news

Both full-backs Callum Booth (Achilles) and Tony Gallacher (foot) are yet to return from nasty injuries which they picked up at the back-end of last season.

Rangers vs St Johnstone score prediction

With the visit of last season's Eredivisie runners-up PSV Eindhoven on the horizon in midweek, Van Bronckhorst may not field his strongest lineup.

However, even a slightly weakened Rangers side should have enough to overcome St Johnstone - especially if the Gers stay switched on at set pieces, the chief route of assault for the Saints.

Prediction: Rangers 2-0 St Johnstone
