Predicted lineups for Rangergers vs. Livingston; manager set for Clash with Best Squad”

Rangers will go to the League Cup semifinals if Michael Beale’s team defeats Livingston on Wednesday night.

When David Martindale’s team visited Ibrox last month on Premiership duty, Rangers easily defeated them 4-0, and Beale will be hoping for a similar outcome after Sunday’s lackluster performance against Motherwell.

What team will start now that Rabbi Matondo is the newest player to be ruled out due to injury?

The Rangers XIs chosen by our writers.

From middle to front, Michael Beale began the campaign with a bevy of alternatives and options. As injuries have decimated the Ibrox squad, he is now nearly at the bare minimum.

Abdallah Sima and Kemar Roofe were always going to make a comeback after missing out on the starting lineup against Motherwell. After Rabbi Matondo joined Todd Cantwell, Kieran Dowell, Nicolas Raskin, Tom Lawrence, and Danilo on the Auchenhowie treatment table, Scott Wright maintains his position through luck rather than ability.

Despite the fact that he scored against the Steelmen, Cyriel Dessers once more failed to impress. Sam Lammers didn’t exactly stand out either, but for the time being, he has the number 10 place.

Bailey Rice might not get to start in front of Jose Cifuentes because Beale can’t afford to take any chances. Since Robby McCrorie is a low-risk replacement for Jack Butland, the quarterfinal is an opportunity to give him a game. Ridvan Yilmaz may well go to left-back.

Rabbi Matondo’s injury is a serious setback because it narrows Michael Beale’s forward options, which were already reducing due to Todd Cantwell and Danilo’s respective absences.

The Welshman’s six-week absence presents Scott Wright with an odd opportunity. It’s amazing to think that he was about to leave Ibrox in the summer, but that he will now be pivotal over the next several weeks

.Since the performance against Mothwerwell was poor, adjustments should be anticipated. Even though Jack Butland has been the Rangers’ outstanding player this season, Robby McCrorie deserves to see some action. Although it won’t be at all shocking to see Butland between the sticks given the pressure Michael Beale is under, he has been patiently waiting for an opportunity.Ridvan has had to wait for first-team action, just like McCrorie. Although Borna Barisic has been performing well, the Turk can provide some vigor and dynamic forward running, which were lacking on Sunday. He m

The frontline should be the only other area to change. Despite scoring the game-winning goal against Motherwell, Cyriel Dessers gave a labored display. Kemar Roofe ought to make a comeback accompanied by Wright and Abdallah Sima.

McCrorie, Tavernier, Goldson, Davies, Ridvan, Lundstram, Cifuentes, Lammers, Sima, Wright, and Roofe are the likely starting lineup.

o commit players and open play up in front of him against what is expected to be a staunch and crowded Livingston backline.
