Livingston defender Ben Gordon insists Lions don’t feel sorry for themselves ahead of Rangers showdown



Livingston defender Ben Gordon insists there is no chance of the Lions having an inferiority complex amid back-to-back clashes with title hopefuls Hibs and Rangers.

After being narrowly beaten 2-1 at Easter Road on Tuesday, Mark Burchill’s side host Championship leaders Rangers on Saturday.

Gordon is hopeful of causing a shock


The restrictions that the West Lothian outfit are working under was illustrated in Leith when Burchill was only able to name five substitutes out of the allocated seven.

However, centre half Gordon insists there is no chance of Livingston feeling sorry for themselves.

He said: “This is why there are so many players in Scottish football who want to play in this league.

“You want to play against the big teams like Hibs and Rangers and we have played against Hibs and Rangers this season and held our own at points in games.

“So I don’t think there’s anything to fear, there’s no kind of inferiority complex.”

Former Alloa captain Gordon admits the Championship title race is too close to call.

He added: “It’s a very difficult question. We’ve gone to Ibrox and done well.

“The recent game was one nil and it was a very tight game.

“We’ve held out own against both teams and I think it’s going to be a long season for them both to try to win the league.”
