Rangers vs Hearts Predictions


Given their current form, Rangers are far too short to back with Hearts capable of giving the Glasgow giants plenty of headaches.

BTTS has a good chance at an attractive price, while I also fancy Lawrence Shankland to score anytime. 

  • Rangers have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 9 matches
  • Rangers have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 5 matches against Hearts
  • Hearts forward Lawrence Shankland has scored in 3 of his last 5 matches against Rangers
  • Hearts have seen BTTS in their last 4 matches

Head to Head


Rangers have an excellent record in recent matches against Hearts. The Gers won 11 of their last 12 encounters since December 2021, including a 2-0 win (AET) in the Scottish Cup final two years ago. 

Rangers Form


Rangers come into Sunday's semi-final contest in desperate form after dropping five points in the space of three days in the Premiership. After a shock 3-2 defeat in the Highlands against Ross County, a lacklustre performance saw the Gers held to a 0-0 draw at Dundee on Wednesday. 

Phillipe Clement's out-of-form side now find themselves three points behind Celtic in the race for the Premiership title. The Gers have won just two of their last eight matches.

Rangers secured their place in the Scottish Cup semi-finals with a 2-0 away at Hearts Edinburgh rivals Hibernian last month. 

Rangers Team News


Head coach Clement has plenty to ponder after a miserable pair of performances in Dingwall and Dundee this past week. Kemar Roofe and Fabio Silva could drop out after failing to impress in Wednesday's goalless draw at Dens Park. 

Mohamed Diomande is available again after a thumb injury, while Turkish full-back Ridvan Yilmaz could return to the squad, but is unlikely to feature from the start. Oscar Cortes and Danilo remain long-term absentees. 

Hearts Form


Hearts make the short trip to Glasgow in search of a third successive victory after back-to-back Premiership wins against St Mirren (2-1) and Livingston (4-2). 

After surprisingly falling two goals down in the opening period against Livi, the Jambos displayed their powers of recovery with four goals before half-time sealing a remarkable victory. 

Scottish international Lawrence Shankland continued his incredible scoring form, netting his 27th goal of the season – his 17th in an impressive 19-game stretch for Stevie Naismith's side.

Hearts Team News


Hearts boss Naismith has no new injury issues ahead of Sunday's semi-final in Glasgow. The former Rangers forward could name the same XI that saw off Livingston last weekend. 

Craig Halkett, Peter Haring, Calem Nieuwenhof and Liam Boyce remain absent for the Jambos. 

Verdict

While Rangers are short favourites, I expect a competitive contest at Hampden.

I'm taking BTTS as my top pick, while I also like Lawrence Shankland in the anytime scorer markets.
