Rangers have a couple of games left before celebrating their incredible league triumph. Their only objective is to maintain the ‘unbeaten’ status and the players must stay motivated before travelling to West Lothian to lock horns with Livingston on Wednesday evening.
Livi, meanwhile, have failed to maintain the momentum after a bright start. They need results to secure a top-half finish and the fixture at the Tony Macaroni Arena is tipped to be end-to-end with both teams aiming for all three points to meet their objectives. Although there are a few injuries and suspensions, Steven Gerrard must field the best possible lineup in order to get closer to the 100-point mark.
Predicted 4-3-3 Rangers Lineup To Face Livingston
Allan McGregor has been majestic all season with his stewardship between the sticks. However, the performance of Jon McLaughlin has been commendable as well in limited opportunities and the gaffer should give him the nod for the remaining two outings.
With Nathan Patterson suspended, skipper James Tavernier remains the only option to operate as the right fullback. Filip Helander and Leon Balogun are struggling with fitness concerns which should see Connor Goldson and Jack Simpson pairing up in the heart of the backline similar to last week’s Old Firm encounter. Calvin Bassey is suspended as well for breaching covid protocols, whereas a slight muscle strain should see Borna Barisic missing the midweek trip. Scott Wright might be fielded as a makeshift left-back as he featured against Celtic during the final quarter.
A calf surgery has ruled Ryan Jack out of the Euro 2020. It’s a massive setback for the Scotsman, however, the Gers are well-equipped in the middle of the park and should rely on the trio of Steven Davis, Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara to maintain the balance and orchestrate the show. Davis, 36, is still going strong from his deep-lying role. Also, the performance of Kamara as the chief ball carrier has grabbed the attention of European hotshots. Aribo’s energetic runs, link-up play and creative spark from in and around the box add more flexibility from the centre of the pitch.
Kemar Roofe scored a brace in the Old Firm derby and the versatile attacking ace must keep his place down the right-hand side of Rangers’ front three. Alfredo Morelos should be spearheading the attack and the flair of Ryan Kent from the left would keep causing menace in the Livi defence all throughout the contest. Ianis Hagi and Jermain Defoe might get involved at a later stage as ‘super subs’.
