Rangers fans rejoice as Hearts Scottish Cup quarter-final details confirmed

Rangers fans have rejoiced after details were released for the Scottish Cup quarter-final clash against Hearts at the end of the month.

The club confirmed the news via a tweet from the official club account on Friday afternoon. The game is to be played at Tynecastle on Saturday 29th February with a 17:30 kick-off and will be televised by Premier Sports.

Itโ€™s a tie that has taken on even more significance in light of recent league results.

The Gers comfortably negotiated their two previous rounds of Cup action, defeating Stranraer 2-0 before running away 4-1 victors at Hamilton.

However, itโ€™s been a different story altogether in the league, with two defeats and a draw in the last five games.

Therefore, this represents a major opportunity for revenge for Steven Gerrardโ€™s side, with the Scottish Cup now clearly the clubโ€™s best remaining chance of silverware this season.

Bears rejoiced on social media when the details were released, but the celebrations werenโ€™t anything to do with Premier Sports selecting the game for live coverage.

Itโ€™s the late Saturday afternoon kick-off time which has supporters excited.

The scheduling gives travelling fans plenty of time to enjoy the build-up on matchday, while if thereโ€™s a big win to be celebrated, most wonโ€™t have to feel the effects in work the next day.
