    Rangers forward Steven Naismith
    Naismith is an injury doubt for Rangers

    Rangers will be without winger Jerome Rothen for their must-win Champions League meeting with Stuttgart.

    Rothen is suffering from sinus trouble, while Steven Naismith is a doubt with both a hamstring and calf strain.

    Striker Kris Boyd, often overlooked for European ties, also has a calf injury, but has a better chance of being fit.

    Manager Walter Smith has yet to decide whether to include Madjid Bougherra, following the defender's late return from international duty with Algeria.

    If Bougherra is not selected, teenager Danny Wilson will retain his place alongside skipper David Weir in central defence.

    US international winger DaMarcus Beasley is back in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury.

    But Pedro Mendes, Maurice Edu and Kirk Broadfoot remain on the sidelines for Rangers as they bid to keep their slim hopes of qualifying alive.

    The Scottish champions sit bottom of the section, with two points from four games, and travel to already-qualified Sevilla for their final tie.

    Victory for Romanian side Unirea at home to the Spaniards, however, would eliminate Rangers from the tournament, even if Smith's team beats Stuttgart.


    Rangers (from): McGregor, Whittaker, Papac, Weir, Wilson, Davis, Thomson, McCulloch, Naismith, Novo, Miller, Fleck, Boyd, Lafferty, Smith, Beasley, Bougherra, Alexander.
