Rangers predicted 4-3-3 v Hearts: Dodoo starts in two changes
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Rangers are expected to make two changes for the Scottish Premiership clash at Tynecastle against Hearts on Wednesday evening.
The Gers battled to a 2-1 win against Partick Thistle in their last league fixture, which saw two goals from young star Joe Dodoo.
The 21-year-old started on the bench on Saturday, but manager Mark Warburton could now give him a start after his impressive display.
This will likely see Joe Garner drop out of the starting eleven, while Danny Wilson could suffer the same in defence.
Veteran centre-back Clint Hill missed the previous fixture with a “slight knock” and could be deemed fit enough to come back into the back four to face Hearts.

Dodoo will likely be supported in the attack by fan favourite Kenny Miller and Harry Forrester.
The attacking duo have been in good form this campaign with six goals and six assists between them.
It is expected that they will be playing in front of usual midfield three Jason Holt, Josh Windass and Andy Halliday.
Joey Barton’s contract termination alongside Niko Kranjcar’s cruciate ligament injury has given the young trio an opportunity to earn some more match time in the squad.
Meanwhile, James Tavernier, Rob Kiernan and Lee Wallace are expected to start with Hill in the back four.
The Gers have the third best defensive record in the Scottish Premiership and they will be keen to maintain their high standards.
Goalkeeper Wes Foderingham will likely retain his place between the sticks ahead of Matt Gilks and the former has been in good form with seven clean sheets in 16 appearances.
It is set to be a tough clash between second and fourth place, but Rangers will be eager to continue their seven-match unbeaten run in the league.
