After sweeping aside Royal Antwerp with great conviction on Thursday, Rangers were handed a much-needed rest over the weekend.

The Bears will now travel to Livingston on Wednesday evening knowing that a win will take them within four points of the Scottish Premiership title.

Steven Gerrard has a number of injury worries facing him and will be forced into some big changes at the Almondvale Stadium.

Allan McGregor will continue his run and great form in-between the sticks as he stakes his claim for the Player of the Year award with numerous masterclass performances.

The back four will see the first change, with Nathan Patterson coming in from the start to replace the injured Leon Balogun at right-back.

Borna Barisic, Conor Goldson and Filip Helander will complete the back four and hope to add to the incredible defensive record with another clean-sheet.

Steven Davis will hold in midfield, stepping into the role that Ryan Jack has left him numerous times because of his injury problems.


Glen Kamara and Joe Aribo will complete the middle three against what could be a demoralised Livingston outfit after their cup final defeat at the weekend.

It will be all change in the front three.

Ryan Kent is in great form and will be the only one to keep his spot on the wing after his goal involvements in the Europa League.

Ianis Hagi hasn’t set the world alight recently, and the Romanian could make way for the full debut of Scott Wright, who continues to shine off the bench.

Alfredo Morelos has been in great form, but with crucial games such as the round-of-16 ties with Slavia Praha on the horizon, Cedric Itten will be given the chance to build on his last-gasp goal last time out.

Here is how we expect the Bears to line up against Livi on Wednesday…
