Rangers face a huge test on Sunday.
After a poor result at Kilmarnock on Wednesday evening, they travel to the Tony Macaroni, to face Livingston.
It’s a ground and a surface that doesn’t hold happy memories.

The hosts on that day also managed to keep a clean sheet against Celtic on their own patch.

Under Gary Holt, they are a difficult side to break down.
However, Rangers must do just that, on Sunday.
Three points are imperative.
Another slip up would suck belief out of the squad and the fans, almost as quickly as the Old Firm win built it up.

Therefore, the latest injury update from the manager, did not go down well.
One positive, is that there are no fresh absentees from the Kilmarnock game.
That’s particularly good news after the pre-match concerns about the state of the pitch.

However, Gerrard confirmed on Friday afternoon, that Vice-Captain, Connor Goldson, is not yet fit enough to return.

He was near ever-present during the first half of the season, and his absence was keenly felt at Rugby Park.

Livingston don’t pose quite as big an attacking threat as Killie, but nevertheless, it would have been a big confidence boost to get him back.
Here are some Bears reacting despairingly.
