Livingston defender Jon Guthrie aiming to shrug off Betfred Cup defeat with Rangers upset

Jon Guthrie admits Sunday's Betfred Cup final defeat to St Johnstone was the 'hardest day' of his career. But he insists there's still plenty to play for this term - and is eyeing up a shock result against Rangers this evening.

The Lions take on Steven Gerrard's side at the Tony Macaroni Arena (6pm kick-off) aiming to inflict a first league loss of the season on the men from Ibrox.

It won't be easy, of course, but the 28-year-old is relishing the challenge.

He said: "I’d be lying if I said everyone was bouncing around the place. It was a tough day for us and the hardest day I’ve had in my career but we have to put that to bed.

“We analysed the game like we always do and spoke about what we should have done better but we also spoke about not dwelling on the game.

“It was a one-off and we have to move on. There’s still a lot to play for and we want this top six place secured as quickly as possible. It’s really important that we don’t let it turn into a rut.

“We’ve still got a lot to play for. If we can get that top six spot then we can see where it takes us for the rest of the season.

“We don’t want the season to just fizzle out. We’ve worked too hard and put too much into it to let that to happen.”

He added: "Would being the first team to beat Rangers make up for losing the final? It would go some way towards it. If we could be the team to put a stop to that record it would be amazing.”
