Giovanni van Bronckhorst wants to ensure his Rangers players remain hungry for success as he welcomes new assistant Dave Vos to the club.

The Dutchman, who was appointed as Steven Gerrard's successor last week, wants to build on his side's Europa League victory against Sparta Prague when they travel to Livingston on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

A win would move the champions seven points clear of Celtic, who take on Aberdeen later in the day.

Connor Goldson was criticised for saying the squad had lost some of their hunger after defeat to Hibs in the semi-final of the League Cup last weekend.

But the passion was there in the 2-0 win over Sparta Prague as an Alfredo Morelos double secured Europa League football after Christmas.

Van Bronckhorst said: "My task is to keep this drive, hunger and passion in every game.
