Rangers have been disappointing in the league games since the mid-season break ended, and the Premiership title isn’t in their hand anymore. Hence, Steven Gerrard’s best chance of winning a silverware will be the Scottish Cup where Rangers will face Hearts in the quarter-finals at the Tynecastle Stadium this weekend.
The Bears booked their place in the next round of the Europa League after a crucial win over Braga. However, Gerrard’s men have struggled to open teams that sit back and defend in numbers. The Scottish Cup would undoubtedly be a big priority for the Bears now. It was against Hearts that Rangers’ title run started going off-track and hopefully, Gerrard and his men have learnt their lesson from their defeat in January.
Team News: Jermain Defoe and Filip Helander are the two significant absentees. Apart from that, everyone should be available for selection.
4-3-3 Rangers Predicted Lineup Vs Hearts
Allan McGregor is nailed on to start in between the sticks. Borna Barisic was able to get fit in time for the Braga clash, and Gerrard might start him again at left-back against Hearts. George Edmundson put in a strong shift in the European game. Hence, he should start over Nikola Katic, who has looked shaky in his past few appearances.
Connor Goldson is going to partner him at centre back. James Tavernier is expected to start at right-back again.
Ryan Jack might occupy the defensive midfield role instead of Steven Davis. Scott Arfield has been in impressive form, and he should continue in the middle. Joe Aribo might be deployed after he only played a few minutes against Braga. Aribo can go past players and produce that magic moment in the final third which Rangers would need against a committed Hearts side.
Ryan Kent scored the all-important goal against Braga in the second leg. Hopefully, he will get back to his best after some below-par performances. The former Liverpool man should start on the left-wing. Ianis Hagi continues to impress, and he will be expected to feature on the right flank.
Florian Kamberi got a chance to start against Braga, but he failed to take his opportunity after impressing in various cameos before. Alfredo Morelos should be fresh for this clash. We expect the Colombian to lead the line for the Gers.
