What channel is Rangers v Livingston? Is it on TV? How to watch Viaplay Cup quarter-final
Michael Beale’s side are the heavy favourites to lift the trophy that has eluded them since season 2010-11 after rivals Celtic were eliminated following a 1-0 defeat to Kilmarnock in the previous round.
Rangers go into the match amid ongoing supporter unrest over an unconvincing start to the season that saw them lose to both Kilmarnock and Celtic in the Scottish Premiership while also exiting the Champions League following a 7-3 aggregate defeat to PSV Eindhoven.
A 1-0 win over Real Betis in the Europa League group-stage opener last Thursday brought some optimism back but that quickly evaported on Sunday when Rangers were booed off by their own fans following a dismal performance despite a 1-0 win over Motherwell.
For Livingston, the trip to Ibrox presents them with a second fixture against the Old Firm in the space of four days following Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to 10-man Celtic, where boss David Martindale was frustrated with his side’s inability to take advantage of the extra man following Joe Hart’s first-half red card.
Livingston last appeared in the League Cup final in season 2020-21 where they lost to St Johnstone in an empty Hampden stadium due to Covid restrictions, while they last lifted the trophy in 2003-04 when David Hay’s side defeated Hibs 2-0 in the final.
