HEARTS welcome Rangers to Tynecastle for what is sure to be a thrilling Premiership clash in the capital.
It’s 3rd vs. 2nd in the table and Robbie Neilson‘s Jambos will no doubt reckon they can be the side to end Michael Beale‘s unbeaten start as Gers boss.Malik Tillman scored the winner at Ibrox when the sides last met in November[/caption]
Hearts haven’t tasted defeat in the league since way back on November 9, winning or drawing the nine Premiership matches they’ve played since.
Their last loss? A 1-0 defeat at Ibrox to Rangers.
The Light Blues have been in excellent form since Beale’s appointment, dropping points just once in the league.
And they’ll know they have to keep that run going if they’re to keep hopes of catching Celtic in the race to be Premiership champions.
It promises to be a belter of a game and SunSport has all the key details ahead of this one.
