Is Livingston Vs Rangers on TV? Stream details, kick-off time and team news for Scottish Premiership opener

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the Scottish Premiership curtain-raiser...

The domestic football season gets underway in Scotland this weekend, with Rangers visiting Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena as they begin their quest to regain the Premiership title.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have displayed some promising counter-attacking football against Premier League opposition in pre-season, giving the Dutchman plenty to be encouraged about heading into the new campaign.

Several new signings have impressed as the Light Blues defeated Blackpool and West Ham United before losing narrowly to Tottenham Hotspur at Ibrox last weekend.

They make the short trip to West Lothian on the opening day in the early lunchtime kick-off to take on David Martindale’s Lions at a notoriously difficult venue.

Rangers have had the upper hand in recent meeting between the two sides, winning 3-1 on their only visit last season before running out 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture back in January.

Livingston will hope to make home advantage count against last season’s Europa League finalists but they will face a difficult taks against a revamped Gers squad.

John Souttar, Antonio Colak, Tom Lawrence, Rabbi Matondo, Malik Tillman, Ben Davies and Ridvan Yilmaz have all arrived in Glasgow to strengthen their ranks following the departures of Joe Aribo and Calvin Bassey this summer.

Van Bronckhorst will hope his team can put on a convincing display ahead of their Champions League third qualifying round 1st leg clash against Belgian side Union Saint-Gilloise next week.
