BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, May 6, 2011
After Celtic's stunning defeat midweek, Maurice Edu and Rangers now control their destiny for a third straight SPL title and their game on Saturday at home against Hearts is now a must win.
Maurice Edu is one again likely to start in central midfield for Rangers.
With just three games to go, Rangers are now in the driver's seat as three straight wins will guarantee them a third straight Scottish Premier League title. One slip up, however, could cost them the chance.
Rangers will also be looking to build off the momentum from last week when they handily defeated Motherwell 5-0 on the road.
Hearts' final standing in the Scottish Premier League is pretty much set as they currently sit in third place 20 points behind Celtic and eight points ahead of fourth Dundee United. A third place finish would secure the Edinburgh-based club a spot in the Europa League.
Rangers do not have any injuries listed at this time.
In the game Hearts will be without Andy Drive, Suso Santana, Jason Thomson, Calum Elliot, Kevin Kyle, and Lee Wallace because of injuries. Ismael Bouzid is suspended. Andy Webster is questionable.
