The games continue to come thick and fast for Philippe Clement and his Rangers team as they return to action in midweek

Fresh from their victory in the Viaplay Cup final, Rangers will aim to build further momentum when they return to Scottish Premiership action at home to St Johnstone on Wednesday night.

Philippe Clement's resurgent side currently trail league leaders Celtic by five points at the summit, but can reduce that down to just two with a victory over Saints when they play the first of two games in hand.

The Gers are proving a tough nut to crack under the Belgian boss and are on a five-game winning streak, with James Tavernier's second half goal against Aberdeen at Hampden Park on Sunday enough to end the Ibrox club's 13-year wait to lift the League Cup trophy.

Saints, who occupy eighth place in the table, head to Govan in buoyant mood following their narrow 1-0 win over Hibernian at the weekend. Craig Levein's men have moved clear of the relegation zone after tasting just two defeats - to Hearts and Celtic - in their last eight matches in all competitions.

The Perth outfit have collected seven points from their last three league fixtures, keeping two clean sheets in the process. They will look to take advantage of a potentially tired Rangers side on the back of two energy-sapping occasions against Real Betis and the Dons last week.

What is the latest team news?

Rangers midfielder Jose Cifuentes will serve the second game of his two-match domestic suspension, meaning Dujon Sterling is likely to retain his place in the side after a Man of the Match display in the Viaplay Cup final.

It's not yet known if there are any fresh injury concerns after the weekend tirumph, but Ryan Jack, Nicolas Raskin and Tom Lawrence are expected to miss out once again. Winger Scott Wright returned from injury as a second half substitute against Aberdeen and is available for selection.

St Johnstone boss Craig Levein could be prepared to name the same starting XI after their victory over Hibernian last time out. Nicky Clark (hamstring), Ross Sinclair (broken arm), Drey Wright (calf) and Cammy MacPherson (thigh) are expected to remain on the sidelines.
