Rangers went into the winter break in optimistic mood after a well-deserved win over Celtic that left them just two points off the top of the league with a game in hand.

That result meant Steven Gerrard's side had the title in their own hands, knowing that if they won every game in the second half of the season they'd finally claim the league title fans so crave.

Since returning from Dubai though Rangers have toiled, dropping points to Hearts, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock to fall 10 points behind and probably end any hope of winning the Premiership.

It's not simply a case of changing for the sake of changing, or aping Celtic's approach, Rangers have the players at their disposal to play 3-5-2 and it's something Gerrard and Michael Beale may want to consider for their upcoming matches.

A similar slump in form after the break last season does lend credence to that theory, but many Rangers fans have also raised questions about their formation.

On paper a 3-5-2 system makes a lot of sense for Rangers.

Even on Wednesday night there was an example of the value of flexibility, with Gerrard admitting before the match he wasn't sure if Kilmarnock would stick with the 3-5-2 they played away at Aberdeen or revert to 4-4-2.
