Gers can’t re­peat Tynecas­tle show


HEARTS are hav­ing a ter­ri­ble time of it right now and Craig Levein’s de­par­ture won’t solve any­thing overnight.

The fans were also giv­ing the play­ers a lot of stick on Wed­nes­day night as they went down 1-0 to St John­stone in Perth so they will go to Hampden un­der a huge weight to get a re­sult. The only way to re­lieve that pres­sure is to get to a fi­nal and that would keep the wolves at bay for a wee while.

I said be­fore the game there a few weeks ago that it was all about at­ti­tude for Rangers. They didn’t get it right and it cost them two points on the day.

This time, we need to start far bet­ter. We can’t give Hearts any en­cour­age­ment or give the play­ers or the fans any hope.

If Rangers con­cen­trate on their game and play the way they can, and as we have seen re­cently, they are too good for Hearts.

They will raise their game again, there is no doubt about that, but Rangers are in form, are the favourites and know ex­actly what to do to en­sure they don’t make the same mis­take again.
