Stuart McCall is ready to face in-from Livingston on Wednesday night and expects a very different game to their last encounter, as he explained to the club's official website.
The match against Livingston in March was McCall’s first game in charge and finished in a surprising 1-1 draw, after Rangers had come flying out the traps in the first 15 minutes.
Livingston have had a recent turn around in form after suffering nine games without a win, only drawing three of those games, and have now won their last three matches in all competitions.
McCall has kept a keen eye on the bottom-place side of late and knows the motivation behind their performance is to keep their jobs next season, with the Lions ready to take three points from the Gers, who have struggled away from home this campaign.
McCall explained to Rangers' official website that he is expecting this to be one of the team's toughest games going into the end of the season and is ready for a very different match to the one last time out.
“It will be a different game than my first in charge, we were excellent for 15 minutes then ran out of steam and they did incredibly well,” he said.
"In the time since then I have seen a lot of them, certainly in the last couple of weeks they’ve won three on the bounce and been full of spirit and have shown they have a lot to play for.”
He continued: "I expect this to be one of our toughest games between now and the end of the season."
At least a point against the Scottish Championship strugglers would be enough to take Rangers above Hibernian, but regardless of their current form the Light Blues will be expected to return to Glasgow with three points to their name.
Livingston are in desperate need of a win and could push Rangers all the way if they fail to score a couple of goals early on, with a repeat of the 1-1 draw not beyond the realms of possibility.
