The starting line-ups are in as Livingston aim to bounce back from Betfred Cup final defeat when they take on Rangers at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

David Martindale’s side makes four changes from the side which lost to St Johnstone, with Max Stryjek, Jack Fitzwater, Craig Sibbald and Gavin Reilly all starting. Rangers make three changes from their Europa League win over Antwerp.

Aiming to secure top six spot

Livingston goes into the game aiming to not only get over the Betfred Cup defeat, but to all but secure a place in the top of six of the Premiership. As it stands, they are five points ahead of seventh placed Dundee United with two games in hand. A win over Rangers would secure a top six spot.
