Rangers boss Steven Gerrard faces several key calls ahead of his side's clash with Livingston on Wednesday night.

With skipper James Tavernier still out and stand-in Leon Balogun a major doubt after injuring his quad against Royal Antwerp, Nathan Patterson looks set to start for Rangers at right-back despite facing an SFA ban for breaking Covid rules.

Kemar Roofe and Ryan Jack remain out alongside long-term knee casualty Nikola Katic, but Jermain Defoe returns after sitting out the European action.

Livingston star Efe Ambrose hopes to shake off a knock he picked up in Livingston’s Betfred Cup final defeat to St Johnstone to face leaders Rangers.

Fellow defender Jackson Longridge could make his return from a medial knee injury but long-term crocks Alan Lithgow and Keaghan Jacobs remain out.
