Steven Gerrard is hoping to have Joe Aribo back in his side for next weekend's match against Kilmarnock.

The midfielder missed out through injury as Rangers were held 0-0 by Livingston at the Tony Macaroni Arena on Sunday.

It was a frustrating afternoon for Steven Gerrard's side, as they dropped points for the first time this season.

Speaking after the match, Gerrard said: “I’m hoping to have Joe back for next weekend.

“He’s got a small ankle problem that we scanned.

“There’s a bit of swelling in there which is obviously a big risk coming to a surface like the one at Livingston.

“We made the sensible call but I think we certainly missed Joe as he’s obviously a game changer in the final third. We threw everything we had at this.

“It was only really Greg Stewart from an attacking point of view that we never threw on.

“We started with a front four who are good players, who a lot of the times win games for us, and we added a lot of good players to it.

“It’s a frustrating one but it’s important to stay calm and move on.”

Rangers welcome Kilmarnock to Ibrox on Saturday as they aim to remain at the top of the Premiership table.
