Two sides who progressed to the next round of the Scottish Cup square off on Wednesday when Rangers play host to Livingston at the Ibrox Stadium.

The hosts head into the game on a blistering 11-game winning run across all competitions and will look to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

Rangers continued their fine run in the Scottish Cup as they eased to a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Sterling Albion last Friday.

They now turn their attention to the Premiership where they are currently on a 19-game unbeaten streak, stretching back to a 1-0 loss against Dundee United on August 7.

With 52 points from 21 games, Rangers currently sit top of the league table, four points above second-placed Celtic.

Similarly, Livingston progressed to the next round of the Scottish Cup as they claimed a 1-0 win over Ross County last time out.

Prior to that, they ended their two-game winless streak when they saw off Dundee FC away from home.

Livingston are currently eighth in the Scottish Premiership standings after picking up 23 points from 21 games.
