What's basically been a poor season for Rangers could still see us finish second behind Heart in the Championship, with these chances more likely following the win against them on Sunday at Ibrox.

Hibernian's latest slip up opened the door for us and by becoming the first side to beat Hearts on their travels, winning two-one despite having McCulloch sent off, we moved above of them and leave second place - and therefore a 'slightly easier' play-off bid - something that is now in our own hands....

Having enjoyed the better of the play we finally made the breakthrough when Murdoch won the ball to give Wallace another chance to get forward with his pull back to Miller (28) seeing him open the scoring as he beat Hearts 'keeper Alexander ahead of the half hour mark.

Shiels gave one of the 'Newcastle Five', the only one to make an impression and worthwhile us having, Vuckic (38) the chance that he took to double the lead ahead of the break. Needlessly we were reduced to 10-men, before the interval, when McCulloch's elbow on Sow saw him given a straight red!

Hearts had the possession in the second half but couldn't do much with it with Law's run giving Clark the chance to add to the lead but his finish was poor and Alexander saved easily. Clark should have done better, but it didn't matter in the end even though Hearts got a goal back.

Bell had kept out Sow's header but Zeefuik (83) followed up to score from close range but that was merely a consolation as we ended the Hearts run of 13 wins from the previous 15-matches played away this season.
