Rangers vs Hearts Predictions


Scotland's two in-form sides should produce a cracking contest at Ibrox on Saturday.

I expect goals at both ends, with Rangers tipped to emerge with a narrow victory. 

  • Rangers have won 12 of their last 13 matches (Premiership)
  • Rangers have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches against Hearts
  • Rangers have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches against Hearts
  • Hearts have lost 10 of their last 11 matches against Rangers
  • Hearts have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 9 away matches

Head to Head


Rangers have an excellent recent record in matches against Hearts over the past decade. 

The Gers have won ten of their last 11 meetings, including a 2-1 win at this venue in October. Hearts have not won at Ibrox since 2014.

Rangers Form


Rangers extended their Premiership winning run to seven matches with a ruthless 3-0 win at St Johnstone last Sunday. Captain James Tavernier was at the double with two penalties to take his tally for the season to 19 goals. 

Two points clear at the top of the Premiership after Celtic's draw with Kilmarnock, Rangers have only failed to win two of their last 19 Premiership matches.

Since the arrival of head coach Phillipe Clement, the Gers have notched up nine successive victories at Ibrox, with at least two goals scored in all nine wins. 

Rangers Team News


Clement has no further injury issues to deal with ahead of Saturday's crunch clash at Ibrox. Cyriel Dessers, Ross McCausland and Rabbi Matondo are among those hoping for a recall to the Gers first XI. 

Kieran Dowell, Kemar Roofe, Danilo, and Abdallah Sima remain sidelined for the league leaders.

Hearts Form


Hearts arrive at Ibrox in superb form after securing an eighth successive victory against Motherwell last weekend. Top scorer Lawrence Shankland scored his 26th goal of the season as the Jambos eased to a 2-0 victory.

Steven Naismith's side are unbeaten in their last ten premiership matches, picking up an impressive nine wins during that unvanquished sequence. Away from home, the Jambos have been particularly strong, with seven wins from their last eight Premiership road contests.

Hearts Team News


Hearts boss Naismith has no new injury issues but is still unable to call on Liam Boyce, Kyosuke Tagawa and Barrie McKay. Kenneth Vargas is set to earn a recall after the 21-year-old scored when appearing as a second-half substitute against Motherwell. 

Verdict

With both teams in such good form, we can expect a competitive and potentially dramatic battle at Ibrox.

I'm backing the Gers to edge a high-scoring contest where I also like the chances of BTTS landing.
