Steven Gerrard was forced into a change by the injury to Leon Balogun against Royal Antwerp, leading to Nathan Patterson’s inclusion at right-back, and the boss made one other switch for the trip to West Lothian.

Jim Strachan: “Thought SG may have given Kent a rest and use Wright but still strong team again.”

Scott Simpson: “What a strong team considering we have Roofe, Tav, Jack and Balogun sidelined!”

Justin James Reynolds: “Good strong team, thought Hagi not Kamara, but happy with the rotation! Nearly there, good show tonight, think we'll be champs on Sunday!”

@dave_n84: “The way Hagi has performed I’m a little surprised to see him drop to bench tbh.”

@ChrisMcL16: “Hagi doesn't deserve to be dropped. Been integral to team recently.”

@Scotty0148: “Would like to have seen Wright get a start, he's been impressive and seems to have fitted in well.”

@nxtheeee: “Wanna see Defoe and Jon in net – feel bad for them, hopefully once title’s wrapped up they get more games. Just shows the quality we have though.”

@OhItsSteely: “Wouldn't mind another Patterson goal with his first touch of the ball tbh.”

Peter Houghton: “Livi look jaded tired last couple of games. My only concern tonight? The rubber pellet surface.”

@stirlingbear55: “Plastic pitch, I'll take a scrappy 1-0 n nae injuries right now, cheers.”

Clifford Renfrew: “Come on Rangers .. we can smell 55.”
