Steven Gerrard’s men didn’t play this past weekend as their match with Livingston was postponed to this coming Wednesday due to the latter’s involvement in the Betfred Cup final.
If the league leaders can pick up all three points at Almondvale and then do the same when they host St Mirren on Saturday they will have a 21-point lead over Celtic going into Sunday.
In that scenario, the reigning champions will need nothing less than a victory to stave off the inevitable for another weekend.
However, if they do, it would also give Rangers the chance of officially ending the ten-in-a-row dream at the home of their biggest rivals. The Ibrox side have won both matches between the clubs so far this campaign and would require just a point to clinch the crown.
