The Gers head into the second Old Firm derby of the season sitting three points behind their opponents after playing a game more.
After netting a late goal to beat St Johnstone 2-1 last week, Rangers were pegged back 1-1 late on by Hibernian in their most recent outing to leave them playing catch up, but they have a big chance to close the gap on Saturday.
Here, Sports Mole looks at the options available to Steven Gerrard for his side's final outing before the winter break.
The first name on Gerrard's team sheet will be striker Alfredo Morelos, who took his tally for the season to 16 goals in 20 league and cup outings with his opener against Hibs.
Gerrard has called for the other players in his squad to "stand up and be counted", with a number of regulars and fringe players currently nursing injury problems.
Arfield appears to be the most likely to return to action this weekend, potentially meaning a place in central midfield alongside Ryan Jack and Ross McCrorie, giving Lassana Coulibaly a rest following a hectic run of fixtures.
