Philippe Clement has named an unchanged Rangers team for today's must-win clash with Kilmarnock.

Gers have no margin for error in the title race as they trail Celtic by SIX points after the Hoops thrashed Hearts 3-0 at Parkhead yesterday. Anything less than a victory for the Light Blues today would hand Celts the opportunity to be crowned champions against their Old Firm rivals in next week's derby at Celtic Park.

And with a full house set to pack into Ibrox today, the pressure will be on James Tavernier and Co. to get the job done against a quality Kilmarnock side, whose boss is in the running for PFA Manager of the Year. Derek McInnes has already masterminded three wins over Glasgow's big two this season and will have his sights set on another upset in Govan this afternoon.

Killie need to win to keep their faint hopes of finishing above Hearts in third alive heading into the final three games of the campaign. Even if they don't, though, the Rugby Park side are still well on course to secure their passport to Europe next season as they sit well clear of St Mirren and Dundee.

So while the Ayrshire men have nothing to lose, it's the opposite for Rangers who must-win if they are to salvage their Treble dreams. It could prove a nervy affair at Ibrox and you can check out how both teams line up below:

Rangers XI: Butland, Tavernier, Balogun, Souttar, Barisic, Lundstram, Diomande, Cantwell, Sterling, Silva, Dessers.

Subs: McCrorie, Ridvan, Lawrence, Dowell, Wright, Roofe, Davies, Raskin, McCausland.

Kilmarnock XI: Dennis, Mayo, Wright, Findlay, Ndaba, Armstrong, Donnelly, Polworth, Kennedy, Watkins, Vassell.

Subs: O'Hara, Deas, McKenzie, Lyons, Watson, Murray, Cameron, Mackay-Steven, Van Veen.
