Goalkeeper Marc McCallum says there is no reason why Livingston can’t inflict on Rangers their second defeat in the Championship this season.

The league leaders arrive in West Lothian tomorrow having seen their gap at the top cut to two points after Hibs’ narrow victory over Mccallum’s side on Tuesday night.

The Ibrox outfit have suffered defeat just once in the league this term, a 2-1 reversal at Easter Road earlier this month.

But, the Lions No.1, who is currently on loan from Dundee United, is of the mindset that Livi have nothing to lose but everything to gain from tomorrow’s clash.

“We’ve taken a lot from Tuesday night’s match despite losing,” McCallum explained. “We are more than able to go out and produce something tomorrow. I don’t think there is much between Hibs and Rangers so, with home advantage, we’ll be hoping to pick up at least a point.

“We’re pushing teams like Hibs and, when we played them in the cup last month, Rangers, but we have come away with nothing. I thought in parts of the game at Easter Road on Tuesday we dominated.

“But we want to try and pull away from the teams below us and try and catch the likes of Queen of the South.”

McCallum admits he is loving life working under manager Mark Burchill where his decision to seek first-team football elsewhere has so far proved to be a shrewd move.

“It’s been a good decision because I’m playing in some really big games in a real competitive division,” the 22-year-old said. “I’m playing against some top players and that’s what you want.

“I’ve always known I can do it but I’ve just never been given a chance up at United.”
