Hearts vs Rangers Match Preview:
Will Rangers be crowned Scottish Premiership champions, if only for two and a half hours?
Prior to the international break, the Gers defeated Dundee United 2-1 at Ibrox, with Antonio olak scoring twice.
So, despite Celtic’s defeat the next day, Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s club is now only two points behind the leaders.
The Light Blues will face Liverpool at Anfield in a tantalising battle of Britain on Tuesday but must first focus on this journey to London.
On the other hand, Heart of Midlothian would go above their visitors if they won by two goals or more.
The Jambos had a fantastic week leading up to the internationals, first defeating RFS 2-0 in Latvia.
Lawrence Shankland and Alan Forrest scored as they ended an 18-year wait for a UEFA group stage triumph.
Hearts are now second in their Europa Conference League group, and their home game against Fiorentina on Thursday will be a spectacle.
Three days later, the same two players scored as Robbie Neilson’s team defeated Motherwell 3-0 at Fir Park.
Hearts lost four of their five games with Rangers last season, but several within Tynecastle believe this time will be different.

Hearts vs Rangers Prediction:
Saturday’s game is the showpiece event in the Scottish Premiership this season, and for a good reason: it pits two sides vying for first place.
Hearts have a perfect record and will be confident of snapping their five-game losing streak against the Rangers. Meanwhile, the visitors have significant injury concerns and will be focused on their UEFA Champions League match against Liverpool at Anfield.
Nonetheless, domestic dominance remains the Rangers’ top priority. A win over Hearts will send a strong message after their painful Old Firm defeat in their last road encounter.
Both teams have good talent and will fight all out for victory, but the visitors should win by a narrow margin in a closely contested game.
Prediction: Hearts 1-2 Rangers
