Rangers return to Scottish Premiership action this weekend as they welcome Hearts to Ibrox on Sunday afternoon (15:30).

The Gers gained what could turn out to be a crucial point in Europe in midweek, while the visitors are winless in their last two.

Rangers vs Hearts Prediction

  • Rangers to win to nil @ 23/20
  • Abdallah Sima to score first @ 5/1

Team News

Borna Barisic missed the Europa League clash with Sparta Prague due to injury and it’s likely that he’ll be absent once again this weekend.

Meanwhile, Hearts will be without Stephen Kingsley due to a groin issue, while Craig Gordon, Craig Halkett, Barrie McKay and Nathaniel Atkinson all remain on the injury list.

Match Odds

Rangers are massive favourites for this game at 2/7, while the draw can be backed at 4/1, with Hearts 8/1 to claim the three points.

The Gers managed to keep a vital clean sheet in midweek, and they’re EVS to do so again this weekend.

Danilo is favourite to score anytime at 6/5, while he’s 4/1 to be the first or last goalscorer.

Rangers to win to nil @ 23/20

Philippe Clement has enjoyed an unbeaten start to his reign as Rangers manager and he’ll be seeking to extend it here.

Ultimately, the Gers should have too much quality for this Hearts team, but 2/7 is far too short to be tipping up, so I’ve gone for the home side to win to nil.

Hearts’ defence looks unconvincing as their defeat at Celtic Park showed last week, and the visitors have not won at Ibrox in nine years.

Abdallah Sima to score first @ 5/1

The 22-year-old is a man in form and will look to return to his usual position having played out of position in midweek.

The Senegal forward has scored nine goals in 17 appearances across all competitions so far this term, including four goals in his last three Scottish Premiership outings.

Sima netted a brace in last weekend’s 4-0 win over Hibernian and he’ll be confident of adding to his tally here against a Hearts side that have kept just one clean sheet in their last five.
