With Celtic already knocked out of the Scottish League Cup, Rangers will be looking to make the most of their opportunity in the competition this season, with Livingston next up in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Rangers vs Livingston Tips

  • Rangers to win & under 2.5 total @ 11/5
  • James Tavernier to score anytime @ 6/4  

Rangers have been doing just enough to pick up wins of late and it might well be a similar situation when Livingston head to Ibrox.

The Light Blues are available at 1/9 to pick up the win inside the 90 minutes, while Livingston are out at 18/1 to pull off a shock victory at Ibrox. A draw on the night in the 90 minutes is currently 7/1.

Team news

Rangers boss Michael Beale has some doubts regarding former Derby County forward Tom Lawrence after the Wales international dropped out of the squad that beat Motherwell 1-0 at the weekend due to injury.

Lawrence now faces a race against time to be fit for this League Cup clash, or he might be rested ahead of Rangers’ next Premiership game at home to Aberdeen on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Cyriel Dessers scored the decisive goal in the victory over the Steelmen on Sunday and will be pushing for another start on Wednesday night.

As for Livingston, manager David Martindale does not appear to have any fresh injuries on their back of their 3-0 Premiership defeat to Celtic at the weekend.

Kurtis Guthrie is expected to start up top for the visitors, with the in-form Joel Nouble in behind.

Rangers to win & under 2.5 total @ 11/5

Rangers are on a three-game winning streak in all competitions going into this game but the Light Blues have been made to work for those wins.

After a 2-0 win over St Johnstone, Gers landed a 1-0 victory over Real Betis in the Europa League, followed by that 1-0 success over Motherwell at the weekend.

Rangers have been finding ways to get the wins in recent outings and they should have enough quality to overcome Livingston on Wednesday.

However, considering Rangers have hardly been playing free-scoring football of late, a home win and under 2.5 total goals in the game offers good value at 11/5.

James Tavernier to score anytime @ 6/4

The talisman skipper at Rangers, right-back James Tavernier has seemingly enjoyed playing against Livingston of late.

While he did not score in their Premiership meeting earlier this season, Tavernier scored three times against Livi over three meetings last term.

With his ability from free-kicks and from the penalty spot, Tavernier is worth considering at 6/4 to add to his impressive tally of 105 goals for Rangers on Wednesday.
