Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side have already made a successful start to the year with a comfortable 4-0 win over Stirling Albion last week, coupled with a draw at Aberdeen maintaining their unbeaten streak.
While the Glasgow side may be slightly disappointed with the away return, they are also paying the price for the past two games in this midweek fixture card with Ianis Hagi ruled out and Ryan Kent suspended after his controversial red card at Pittodrie.
Livingston were the first visitors to Ibrox this season and across the top flight, is a repeat of the opening weekend’s fixtures as the second half of the season gets underway – slightly out of alignment after the changes made to the winter break.
Here’s the key match info you’ll need to tune in for the action on Edmiston Drive.

The winter break moving forced several games to be rescheduled. This one, with David Martindale bringing last season’s League Cup finalists to Ibrox, was always originally planned to be played on Wednesday night but has now been joined been by two other night games either side, after crowd capacity restrictions prompted a re-think over the mid-season interval.
The top flight will catch up with another evening schedule next week which includes the Edinburgh and Old Firm derbies.
