Rangers boss set to ring the changes as Gers head to Tynecastle to face Hearts

Rangers manager Gio van Bronckhorst takes his side across the M8 to face Hearts this afternoon in the Gers’ final Premiership fixture of the season – and their last before Wednesday’s Europa League final in Seville – and the Dutchman hinted he will ring the changes when the Light Blues run out at Tynecastle today.

The Tynecastle clash also serves as a something dress rehearsal for next weekend’s Scottish Cup final at Hampden but the Rangers boss made it clear that his focus is somewhere other than the capital this afternoon.

“Hopefully we win, but it’s obvious we are getting close to the final,” van Bronckhorst said.

“I wanted the last games we played in the league to get everyone fit and to give them minutes to be ready for the last week.

“Saturday will be the same but you can expect some changes with the line-up.”

Rangers boss will be hoping for no new injuries v Hearts ahead of Europa League final

With Rangers still short in attack going into the Europa League final, the Ibrox boss will be hoping he doesn’t suffer any more injuries to his squad ahead of Wednesday.

While van Bronckhorst is likely to wrap his players in cotton wool, there is a chance for the likes of Amad to come in and impress – and potentially force their way into the side v Frankfurt.

Getting through today with no injuries is all anybody wants so attention can fully turn to Wednesday night and the biggest game the club has faced in 50 years.
