Rangers Hearts must win as Rangers now 7th

Saturday’s Scottish Premiership results put an added pressure on the Rangers Hearts clash at Ibrox tomorrow. Aberdeen and Hibs both clean up at home. Kilmarnock picked up a strong win away to Dundee and Livingston held out at Motherwell.

The Scottish Premiership is wide open at the minute as the entire top continue to chop and change positions. The only real constant has been in Rangers opponents tomorrow, Hearts.

Hibs and Aberdeen convincing as table still all over the place

Hibs resounding 6-0 against Hamilton takes them within two points of Hearts. Any slip up by Hearts tomorrow gives their 2nd place Edinburgh rivals an advantage and means there’s only one game between them.

Third placed Killie are now three points off top and the difficult to beat side continue to grind out important results. Livingston are 4th after holding out for a 1-1 draw away to Motherwell. Celtic, who play St. Johnstone tomorrow, sit in 5th.

Aberdeen comfortably dispatched St. Mirren 4-1 at home and are now emerging as a really capable side. Celtic struggled to an unsurprising victory over the side last weekend, but they are developing well. They now sit in 6th.

Rangers Hearts match a must win

Rangers must win tomorrow to ensure they keep touching distant with the leading pack. If not for anything else than the fact these teams themselves are looking very difficult to beat.

A win tomorrow will take Rangers to fifth, maybe even to fourth if Celtic slip up. Rangers need to make sure they dispatch the league leaders first.

Here’s three head-to-head battles which Rangers will need to win to progress.
