No its or buts, only wins matter now.
First off, we must beat Livingston, no matter the score or performance.
Then we need to start putting space between us and Aberdeen and Killie.
Finally, if we do string wins together, we have to put pressure on the vermin, as they have folded a few times this season.

I think we're winning this tomorrow with a bit to spare.

Livi aren't the force they were earlier in the season and have slumped down to 7th.

One game at a time, but we have a nice run of games approaching, so let's start with 3 points tomorrow.

I think it will be the same side and formation that beat the tarriers except Katic in for Goldson.

Can't see McAuley playing 2 games in a week on plastic.

No time for pretty football tomorrow on that crazy golf style pitch. Just get the ball to our strikers as often as possible in the penalty area. Just win, Rangers, and we can debate the hoofball tactics when its finished.

There's no excuses for not winning this tomorrow.

I know a few Livingston fans that think they now have the 'safe syndrom' and aren't the side they were at the start of the season.

Getting beat by a Kilmarnock side that are flying and have been for a while I can understand - dropping points to this Livingston team will be unforgivable.

Win. No walking it into the goal, just win and clear anything that comes close to Shagger!

I’m hoping for a reaction; anyone else in the North Stand?

Think they have a few out. Key to this one is a solid and hard working midfield....and no more fu cki ng about with the ball at the back.

Mon the Gers, just do it.

Big let down v Kilmarnock, we just can't afford another one.

Get the job done Rangers, 2-0 victory will do just fine.

Mon the Gers, just do it, pleeeeeeese.

Ryan Hardie won't be able to play for them will he?

He's their top scorer despite hardly playing due to injury, the last thing we need is him scoring against us after Wednesday's debacle!

No, he can't play. The big lump they have up front that gave us no end of trouble last time is also out injured. That's their two top scorers. Cannot see them scoring or even threatening from open play. Said it on another thread, we score and we win imo.

McGregor Tav Worrell Katic Barasic McCrorie Kent Jack Arfield Candeias Morelos

Didn’t realise Barasic was available but I don’t think Halliday deserves to be dropped....I actually think he’s vital as he’s now our dead ball specialist....( or preferred corner taker if that sounded a bit OTT :) )

Got to be honest when I say I’m so nervous. I would like to see katic start ahead of worrall. i don’t remember katic making a worse mistake than worrall’s on Wednesday night

Id like to see us play a 3-5-2 today, use tav on the right and kent on the left up the wings getting balls in the middle to our two target men, if we play like that im confident we will grab a result

It would certainly be a brave decision if SG did considering what happened after the first 20 minutes at Kilmarnock.

Under 3-5-2, IMO, we become too narrow and the fullbacks have to advance to try to create any width which leaves the CB’s far too exposed to the counter attack.

I reckon SG will go for the safer option of playing Alfredo up on his own but you could be correct and he may think that the Kilmarnock debacle was purely down to the JW mistake.

Time will tell.

I think it’s going to be Worrall and katic today .

Livingston recent form is even worse than ours ( no wins in six for them) so surely to fcuk we can put three points on the board today .

If not, Gerrard will hear the fans and rightly so .

Another plastic pitch. Another difficult game for us. According to the BBC sports pages, we have only won once in the past five away games at Livingston, and that was back in 2004. We have to be realistic. It is not going to be easy today unless we change our style. Give Livi the luxury of the ball in midfield and we hit them on the break. If it is going to be like last September, we crammed into their final third and got nowhere. The pitch is a leveller. No doubt about it. We could see that at Killie last Wednesday. So, be savvy. Try something different. And remember, our defense against Killie and HJK has conceded four goals in two games. SG has to come up with plan B. Otherwise, it could be end up a draw, or worse.

Lat game there I was in Hospitality dining with the Chairman of Livingston prior to kick off. He was waxing lyrical about the great job Holt has done and how difficult they are to beat at home.

Me being me reassured we would take at least 3 off his " wee diddy team " Guess who came looking for me at full time? Sometimes I just wish I could keep my big mouth shut!

Dolly Menga ripped Goldson and Worrall a new arse.

So I'm back in Hospitality today, this time though I'll be keeping schtum. Livingston are no mugs, especially on that surface, and I think we'll struggle to take anything from the game.

Lesson Learned Loyal.

They are definitely not mugs at home and I thought they played decent football recently at Ibrox.
