Rangers face Hearts this afternoon at Tynecastle in the Light Blues’ final game before Wednesday’s Europa League final – and Gio van Bronckhorst has made a host of changes to his side with Alex Lowry the only starter from the midweek win over Ross County.

With nothing to play for this afternoon, the Gers boss has wrapped his stars in cotton wool to avoid any injuries ahead of facing Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday.

Rangers-bound defender John Souttar is expected to play some part for Hearts ahead of moving to Ibrox this summer,, the centre-back starting among the substitutes.

The Rangers fans are sure to be in a party mood at Tynecastle ahead of a massive week for the Light Blues, with a trip to Hampden to face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final also to come next weekend.

The Light Blues line up with Jon McLaughlin in goal behind a defence of Adam Devine, Leon Balogun, James Sands and Leon King.

Steven Davis, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Lowry make up the Light Blues midfield three while Scott Arfield, Cedric Itten and Amad lead the line.

There are also places on the bench for the likes of Kane Ritchie-Hosler, Tony Weston, Ross McCausland, Cole McKinnon and Murray Miller.

With no place in the squad at all for Kemar Roofe, it looks as though the striker’s hopes of reaching the Europa League final are at an end.

However, that can wait til later as the Light Blues look to end the Premiership season with three points.
