Alfredo Morelos The Colombian forward scored 20 times before the winter break and contributed 11 assists too despite being sent off three times as well.Jermaine Defoe Scored on his debut, as he always seems to, and will want to back that up with more starts and more goals now.James Tavernier Nine goals from right-back is remarkable in itself, but the Englishman has also set up 14 goals so far this season.

Rangers have more than enough about them to score against anyone in this division, while theyve consistently created plenty of chances away from home, but Livingston should not be dismissed from an attacking point of view. The hosts have scored in each of their last four at home, notching at total of 11 goals during that time, while theyve posted expected-goals for figures of 1.35, 4.4, 1.57 and 1.26, so they too can register on the score-sheet.

Livingston vs Rangers Prediction

Expert Verdict: Rangers have a surprisingly poor record in this fixture of late - at Livingston anyway - but a lot has changed since Livi's early-season home win. With Livingston out of form, this is a big chance to take all three points back to Glasgow. Rangers are back on track and will be keen to get back to winning ways after the mid-week defeat to Kilmarnock cost them ground in the title race.

Dolly Menga, the match winner when these sides last met in Livingston, went off injured in the Scottish Cup against Hearts, while Rangers loanee Ryan Hardie is ineligible. Ciaron Brown has signed on loan from Cardiff City but is only expected to serve as cover for the back three of Alan Lithgow, Craig Halkett and Declan Gallagher. Ricki Lamie returned from his injury lay-off over the winter break and was at left wing-back against St Johnstone.
