Livingston should make Rangers work hard for victory

Plastic not fantastic for the visitors

Rangers have had plenty to smile about recently

Ladbrokes Premiership
Sky Sports Football, 1.30pm Sunday

Rangers are set for a tough encounter in West Lothian, but they may just about labour to success.

Livingston have been a surprise package in the Ladbrokes Premiership this season, but they shouldn't be as they are playing the same way that earned them two successive promotions.

They are well-organised and compact and they work their socks off, showing no respect to whoever they play.

On top of that, the new artificial surface at the Tony Macaroni Arena slows the game down and will be detested by their opponents.

Steven Gerrard's side are in fine form, but he has acknowledged this could be a slog. They may well get the points, but don't expect a goalfest.

Recommendation
Rangers & under 3.5 goals
1pt 6-5 Ladbrokes, Betway
