Match preview

Rangers have failed in a thrilling 2021-22 Scottish title race, but Gers begin their bid to do better at Livingston on the opening day of the new campaign.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst lost the services of key players Calvin Bassey and Joe Aribo over the summer, but the Dutch boss has made some interesting moves in the transfer market, snapping up Ben Davies from Liverpool and the Welsh youngster Rabbi Matondo.

And their recent record against Livi will give the Gers boss plenty of optimism to start the new season with three points. Rangers have won six of their last seven meetings with David Martindale’s men without conceding and they are expected to kick off the new term with another comfortable win.

The new era of Hibs under Lee Johnson couldn’t have gotten off to a better start. New signing Aiden McGeady has already been ruled out for two months with injury and the Hibees were handed a penalty for fielding an ineligible player in the Scottish League Cup, sealing their early exit from the competition.

However, young midfielder Ewan Henderson was a rare shining spark. The 22-year-old made a permanent move to Easter Road from Celtic this summer and has been used in a more advanced role than during his loan spell at the club last season.

Henderson has scored three times in four League Cup games and is likely to play either from the left or as a number ten against St Johnstone.

The youngster could be one of the most potent attacking options in an opening clash between two sides who look a little light up front. He might be too expensive to put on the scoresheet.
