Rangers manager Philippe Clement will face Hearts for the third time in only his 11th match in charge when his side travel to Tynecastle Park on Wednesday.

Hearts’ home ground can be a tough domain for rival clubs, particularly when the Gorgie side are in top form, as they have been recently, with four wins on the bounce since losing two late goals in a 2-1 defeat at Ibrox on October 29.
