Rangers to 'sacrifice' big-name player v Livingston - Steven Gerrard
Steven Gerrard has confirmed that a big-name Rangers player will be “sacrificed” against Livingston this evening.
The Bears will be without Borna Barisic and Calvin Bassey in Almondvale, leaving them with no out-and-out left-back for the penultimate game of the season.
Gerrard has warned against having too much of an ego, pointing towards an experienced option filling in there as we look to keep our invincible record.
Speaking via the Glasgow Times, Gerrard kept it secretive who will be filling that role, but it could be a clear area to target for Livingston.
“We are going to ask someone to do a role that is not his main role but he hopefully will sacrifice himself for the team, park his ego up and try and deliver a job for us in that position and we will go from there,” he said.
“We will have a strong team.”
Who could it be?
The instant name that springs to mind would be Steven Davis.
There was potential for Leon King to make his first start for the club, but it appears as though the gaffer will stick with experience.
If the previous clash at Livingston is anything to go by, this will be a clash filled with fire and controversy, so the experience could be the best option.
Davis has been phenomenal in midfield this season and could recycle possession perfectly down the left-hand side when needed.
That could lead to an attacking midfield, with Glen Kamara holding behind the likes of Joe Aribo and Ianis Hagi; watch out.
