Rangers’ Scottish League Cup semi-final clash with Hearts is set to take place on Sunday, November 3rd at Hampden, according to a report.
According to the Scottish Sun, talks were held yesterday between clubs, the SPFL, BT Sport and Police Scotland and it looks likely the Gers will face the Jambos on Sunday afternoon.
The other semi-final between Celtic and Hibs is, according to the report, set to go ahead with a “teatime” kickoff on Saturday.
Rangers booked their place in the last four after a hard-fought win over Livingston in midweek as Glen Kamara’s goal was the difference between the sides at the Tony Macaroni Arena while Hearts needed a last-minute equaliser against Aberdeen to force extra-time before triumphing 3-0 on penalties.
Steven Gerrard’s side face a trip to Dingwall to take on Ross County in the league a few days before the semi-final is scheduled to take place as the games come thick and fast for Rangers.
The Gers haven’t lifted a major trophy since 2011 and they now have a fantastic opportunity to reach the final if they can get past Craig Levein’s Jambos.
After stumbling at the same stage last season, Rangers will be desperate to better that and book a return to Hampden for December’s final.
