Rangers will welcome Livingston to the Ibrox Stadium on Sunday for a matchday 12 fixture in the Scottish Premier League.

The hosts currently lead the way on the standings, with 29 points picked up from 11 matches, while Livingston sit eighth on the 12-team SPL table.

Rangers come into this match on the back of a morale-boosting 2-0 victory away to Standard Liege in their Europa League opener, while Livingston fell to a 3-1 home defeat to Kilmarnock last weekend.


Rangers vs Kilmarnock Head-to-Head

This will be the 21st meeting between the two sides and Rangers have the better head-to-head record.

The Gers were victorious on 13 previous occasions, scoring 36 goals and conceding just 10, while the West Lothian side have just two wins. Five previous games ended in a stalemate.

The most recent meeting between the two sides came in August when they played out a goalless draw.

Rangers vs Livingston Prediction

Rangers have been in fine form this season and are unbeaten in their first 14 matches across all competitions (12 wins).

This is made all the more impressive when you consider that they have combined domestic action with navigating Europa League qualification, while they also totally outplayed their city rivals Celtic in the Old Firm derby last weekend.

Livingston, for their part, have also impressed and their loss last weekend ended a four-game winning run that saw them climb up the table.

They will, however, have their work cut out against Steven Gerrard's side who have serious ambitions of ending Celtic's nine-year title-winning run.

Prediction: Rangers 4-1 Livingston
