FRANCISCO SANDAZA could return to the Rangers team tonight if Kevin Kyle is unfit to face Annan Athletic.

Sandaza has been out of action since fracturing a cheekbone in the Scottish Communities Cup win over Motherwell back in September.

However, the Spaniard could start if Kyle fails to recover from the "general soreness" he is feeling after playing on the artificial pitch at Links Park on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Dean Shiels, who has an ankle injury, is a doubt for the visit of the Galabank club.

However, winger Fraser Aird and centre-half Ross Perry are both available for selection once again.
