Fans who were hoping to get a first glimpse of Leon Balogun will have to wait a little longer as he is not named to the Rangers squad.
Gerrard has, however, named a team as strong as possible under the current circumstances, with Allan McGregor coming back to the side as Ianis Hagi, Alfredo Morelos and Joe Aribo all retain their places.
Coventry will be hard to break – they won the Ligue 1 title last season after their season was cut short by coronavirus.
Their captain is former Kilmarnock star Liam Kelly, 30, who will be eager to return to the North as the team look to prepare for life in the Championship.
Rangers XI: McGregor, Tavernier, Edmundson, Goldson, Barisic, Jack, Kamara, Aribo, Kent, Hagi, Morelos.
Coventry XI: Marosi, Burroughs, Giles, Pask, Drysdale, Hyam, Kelly, Hamer, Godden, Shipley, O’Hare.
