Hearts vs Rangers Match Preview
Rangers have recovered superbly from their Old Firm defeat to return to the top of the Scottish Premiership table – and are expected to remain there by beating Hearts.
The only time Steven Gerrard’s side have dropped domestic points this season was when they lost 2-0 at home to their arch-rivals Celtic, bouncing back with four subsequent league wins.
Consequently, the Gers spent the international break at the summit of the standings because champions Celtic have lost at Livingston and been held to a draw at Hibernian – although the bookmakers clearly still believe the trophy will not be switching from the east end of Glasgow to the west at the end of the season judging by their title odds.
It’s up to Rangers to convince them otherwise and the best way to do that is to keep winning matches against teams like Hearts, who are through to face Rangers in the League Cup semi-finals in two weeks’ time but have won only once in the Premiership so far this term.
That was a hugely important victory, mind you, 2-1 away to their biggest rivals Hibernian with the goals scored by players who are being linked with moves away from the Jam Tarts – striker Uche Ikpeazu and 17-year-old left-back Aaron Hickey.
However, it is very difficult to oppose Rangers against the more rank-and-file opposition north of the border at present such is their excellent form and while it may not be easy at Tynecastle, they are backed to claim three points that will keep them at the top of the table.
