Pundit: 'I'm sure' Rangers have held meeting amid 'massive' McAllister reveal
Paul Robinson has tipped Rangers boss Steven Gerrard to name “a very strong side” for the Scottish League Cup quarter final tonight.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and Leeds goalkeeper said Gerrard will be “bitterly disappointed” with his side’s performances in the cups last season.
The Light Blues welcome Livingston to Ibrox tonight and the visitors will be high on confidence after a 1-0 win over Celtic on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s side crashed out of the Scottish League Cup at this stage last season following a 3-2 defeat at St Mirren.
Robinson insisted there will be no complacency tonight because of last season’s disappointment.
“I expect Gerrard to field a very strong side,” he told Football Insider.

“He will be bitterly disappointed by how the cup campaigns went. They did so well in the league and should really have done better in the cups.
“I’m sure they would have had a meeting in pre-season and talked about the need to improve in the domestic cups. It is an area they will have identified for improvement. They will be desperate to go further than they did last year.
“I don’t think they’ll be complacent given what happened.”
Speaking to RangersTV ahead of the clash, assistant manager Gary McAllister said the competition was “massive” for the club.
He added: “I have got to emphasise the point that this is a really big game for us against Livingston.”
