Rangers dropped two valuable points against Livingston on Sunday and it was a painful case of deja vu for fans of the Light Blues as their team put them through and all too familiar 90 minute performance.

Kris Boyd claimed that Alfredo Morelos could’ve done more whilst the Gers gaffer was happy with his side’s tempo and the positions they were getting into but they lacked the cutting edge to take advantage.

Sky Sports half-time analysis revealed just how deep Livi were playing and demonstrated exactly what it would take to break the stale-mate, Borna Barisic came closest, nearly repeating his stunning free-kick that he scored against St Johnstone but it was clawed away to safety when it looked destined to hit the back of the net.

Does Gerrard have to make changes to the midfield?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Steven Gerrard’s men huffed and puffed but were met with a resilient Livi backline that regularly featured a “back six”, how costly the two dropped points will be will only be known at the end of the season, however, in the immediate after math, Gers fans made it crystal clear that they expected better – if they expect to win the league.

Rangers did carve out a few opportunities and kept their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the league but it will be the frustration caused by missing the chance to really put pressure on Celtic, rather than the dropped points, that will be hurting fans the most.
