Glasgow Rangers are due to play against Hearts in a Scottish Premiership clash at Tynecastle on Sunday, with nothing other than three points acceptable for the Ibrox giants.

The Gers head into the clash in second place but the Light Blues can leapfrog rivals Celtic with victory and head back to the top of the pile.

Rangers are looking to win the league title for the first time in almost a decade this season.

The Gers will back themselves to record a comfortable victory against Craig Levein’s side, who have so far managed to take just six points from their eight league games to date.

Rangers have also managed to beat Hearts during the past three league visits to them.

Interestingly, there has not been a draw during the previous 15 league games between the sides.

The last time that Rangers and Hearts played out to a draw came back in March 2006, when the score finished off at 1-1.

Ryan Kent and Jon Flanagan could be set to play for the Gers after having overcome hamstring and hernia problems respectively, according to a report which was published by BBC Sport.

Rangers have begun the league in good form as they have lost just one game to date.

Even the one defeat that Steven Gerrard’s side suffered was understandable as it came against defending Champions Celtic.

By contrast, Hearts have only won one league game to date. The home side for Sunday’s clash will need to play with plenty of spirit or else they could be in for a long afternoon in front of their home fans.

Rangers will be going all out to secure three points.
