Rangers will face Livingston on Saturday in their opening match of the 2022-23 Scottish Premiership season in West Lothian. The 2020-21 champions are out to reclaim their top-tier crown after they were dethroned by rivals Celtic last term, and will eye the best possible start at Almondvale Stadium this weekend.

Team news and rosters

PositionLivingston roster
Goalkeepers George, Konovalov, Stryjek
Defenders Devlin, Parkes, Fitzwater, Obileye, Brandon, Boyes, Kelly, Cancar
Midfielders Longridge, Bahamboula, Pittman, Montaño, Mullin, Holt, Bitsindou, Shinnie, Penrice, Oméonga, Clark
Forwards Anderson, Gonçalves, Nouble, Hamilton, Kabia

A tough 2021-22 campaign compounded by three losses in their final four games of the primary phase saw Livingston miss out on the top six, in a subsequently bitter pill to swallow - their final points tally would have been enough for a fourth-place finish and European football in another world.

But David Martindale will hope to use the pain of last year's near-miss to build on an eventual seventh-place spot and crack the upper half of the table for good this term - and they can throw down an immediate marker against one of the favourites.

Predicted Livingston starting XI: Stryjek; Devlin, Fitzwater, Obileye, Montano; Shinnie, Kelly, Pittman; Nouble, Bahamboula, Anderson.

PositionRangers roster
Goalkeepers McGregor, McCrorie, McLaughlin, Wright
Defenders Tavernier, Yilmaz, Helander, Goldson, Simpson, Souttar, Katić, Żukowski, Davies, Barišić, King, Devine
Midfielders Lundstram, Hagi, Jack, Davis, Kent, Kamara, Sands, Ofoborh, Kelly, Arfield, Middleton, McCann, Lowry

Forwards

Čolak, Lawrence, Matondo, Morelos, Wright, Roofe, Sakala, McCausland, Tillman

2021-22 could have been a disaster for Rangers once Steven Gerrard flew from the coop for Aston Villa, so it is to their credit that under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, they rallied with a barnstorming run to the Europa League final, before turning that heartbreak against Frankfurt into silverware in the Scottish Cup.

The Dutchman has now had a full pre-season to leave his mark on proceedings and will hope to wrestle back dominant in the Premiership from crosstown rivals Celtic, who surely possess Old Firm bragging rights after yet another league triumph last term to dethrone them.

Predicted Rangers starting XI: McGregor; Tavernier, Souttar, Goldson, Barisic; Lundstram, Kamara; Matondo, Lawrence, Kent; Colak.
