HEARTS V RANGERS, Tynecastle, Sat 13 Mar

At the end of the day, it’s a game of two halves. Or at least it’s a season of two halves for Hearts, as their strong early season performances have been undermined by the recent grim admission that the club is close to insolvency. So the Jambos play their last ever game against Rangers at Tynecastle as the owners sell up and plan to lodge in nearby Murrayfield stadium. At the same time, Hearts have applied for entry into the lntertoto Cup for the first time in years, and with their third place in the SPL more or less assured, there’s a chance that Edinburgh will see European football again be‘ore long. If not, we’ll surely be able to say we woz robbed.
