Rangers’ second Scottish Premiership trip to the Tony Macaroni Arena this season has been shelved - to allow Livingston to make a journey in the opposite direction to Hampden.

David Martindale’s side defeated St Mirren 1-0 in the weekend’s semi-final to set up a crack at silverware with St Johnstone on Febraury 28, but were already scheduled to be playing Steven Gerrard’s team that day – the weekend after the Europa league knock-out round second leg with Royal Antwerp.

The Lions' cup final role means the league match on the synthetic surface will be given a new date, either in March or brought forward a week when both sides have a free weekend set aside for Scottish Cup ties which are dependent on the suspension of the lower leagues being lifted.

A date has yet to be finalised but on their last trip to West Lothian – a venue they have found tricky in recent seasons – Rangers drew 0-0.
