Chris Sutton predicts Rangers v Hearts, fans will be surprised

By Harry Sykes

Chris Sutton has predicted on Twitter that Rangers will beat Hearts in Saturday’s Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox.

The Celtic legend is a frequent critic of the big rivals of his former club and has yet to be won over by new manager Pedro Caixinha.

But Sutton believes that Rangers will overcome Hearts with a 2-1 victory in the biggest Scottish fixture of the weekend with a verdict that many will regard as a surprise.

On his personal Twitter account, Sutton also backed Celtic to secure a 2-0 victory at Kilmarnock in the lunchtime kick-off at Rugby Park.

Rangers are aiming to get bounce back after losing 3-2 at home to Hibernian in a volatile clash last weekend that led to a public spat between Caixinha and his opposite number Neil Lennon as well as police and SFA investigations.

Caixinha will be able to call upon midfielder Ryan Jack after his appeal against the red card he received in the first half of the Hibs clash was upheld.

In other Rangers transfer news, the club have agreed the terms of a forward deal with just days of the window remaining.
