Rangers, who left it late to turn things around to win at Patrick Thistle a week ago, look for a victory in the visit of Hearts to Ibrox on Saturday, the first of what will be hoped can be three in a row to end the campaign?

Given the fact the Rangers players only have two weeks between the 2016-17 season and return to pre-season training for the 2017-18, owing to Europa League qualification, the most important thing for Pedro Caixinha, looking at the bigger picture, would be that we don't see any more injuries on Saturday, and the games to follow.

The younger players will continue to get a chance with other squad members, Caixinha might still be undecided upon, having an eye cast over them again. Yes, as always, a win is wanted, like I say ending with three on the spin ideally, but there's other priorities at the moment isn't there?

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment for Rangers come the full time whistle.
