A place in the semi-finals of Premier Sports Cup is up for grabs at Ibrox on Wednesday night as Rangers take on last season’s beaten finalists Livingston.
The Light Blues will be eager to bounce back from a frustrating 1-1 draw with Motherwell and take one step further than they did in the competition last term when the Gers crashed out at the quarter-final stage to St Mirren.
Rangers breezed to a 3-0 win over Livi on the opening day of the league season and Steven Gerrard will be hoping for a repeat of that performance from his side as they bid to secure a first visit to Hampden Park in almost two years.
Gerrard has already admitted his record in domestic knockout competitions needs improving after failing to win the Premier Sports Cup or Scottish Cup during his time in charge.
The Glasgow giants will have to plot a way through a tricky tie against a Livingston side full of confidence and desperate to pull off a quick-fire shock Old Firm double after taming Celtic 1-0 on Sunday.
