Rangers fans issued important information ahead of Hearts trip

Rangers travel to Tynecastle on Premiership duty on Sunday afternoon – and Hearts have issued important information for supporters ahead of the trip across the M8.

Gio van Bronckhorst’s side head to Gorgie looking to continue their 100% domestic record under the Dutchman and increase their gap at the top of the table.

Fresh off last night’s 1-1 draw with Lyon in France, there’s likely to be some changes to the side against Hearts with the likes of Allan McGregor and Alfredo Morelos likely to return to the side.

With Tynecastle likely to be close to capacity for the visit of the champions, Hearts have reminded fans that spot checks to check Covid-19 vaccine status will be in force on entry to the ground.

Fans will be able to enter Tynecastle from 10.30 am ahead of the noon kick-off and the Jambos have given lengthy instructions as they look to avoid delays for supporters on their way in.

While it isn’t a requirement, Hearts also recommend that fans complete and return two negative lateral flow tests throughout the week before heading to Tynecastle to see Rangers in action.

Rangers have been allocated fewer than 1000 tickets for Tynecastle this weekend, with Hearts reducing the Gers’ support and only giving us two sections of the Roseburn Stand having previously been given the entire section.

Before the game, Rangers will warm-up wearing special number 2 shirts in memory of Dutch star Fernando Ricksen, who tragically passed away in 2019 with Hearts making a similar gesture by warming up wearing a number 26 shirt in honour of Scottish Cup-winning captain, and ex-Ger, Marius Zaliukus who also died from MND in 2020.

Former Rangers, Hearts and Falkirk midfielder David Hagen also passed away in 2020 after he was diagnosed with the condition and fans are being encouraged to donate to bucket collections at Tynecastle whilst supporters can donate £5 to MND Scotland by texting CUREMND to 70660.

All the pre-match information from Hearts can be read HERE and fans without tickets are asked not to travel to Gorgie by the Tynecastle club.
