Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has insisted that his players are ready to go and “win a battle” this weekend when they face Livingstone in the Scottish Premiership.

The Gers have won all three games so far without conceding a goal and will be hoping to continue that form at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday against Gary Holt’s struggling side.

“We have had positive results at Livi but it is always a tough physical challenge,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the club’s Twitter account.

 

“We will have to be focused and ready but we are in good form to go and win a battle.”

Livi have struggled so far since the start of the new season, only picking up one point so far, and Holt’s men have looked a shadow of the side which impressed last term.

The Gers will likely come up against a former team-mate with Jason Holt having recently signed for the West Lothian side, while keeper Robby McCrorie will miss out due to being on loan from Rangers.

While Gerrard’s side may find themselves in a bit of a battle, there should be no excuses for failing to come away with the three points.
