Rangers finished their Scottish Premiership campaign on a positive note as they produced one of the comfortable football results for the weekend. Peter Haring opened the scoring in the 24th minute before Cedric Itten equalized in the 33d minute. Alex Lowry gave Rangers the lead in the first minute of stoppage time before Cole McKinnon sealed the win in the 81st minute.
Rangers manager Van Bronckhorst: “It was very pleasing. It was the last game before the two finals, so I decided to change the team and give players some rest. I was really impressed by the win and the way we played. You couldn’t see the changes we had made, especially with so many youngsters on the pitch. I think they performed really well. We dominated against a very good side with a very young team. I’m very proud. It was great to see Cole on the first team. I’m really pleased for him with this special moment. It’s going to be amazing, a fantastic occasion. We will bring as many supporters as we can. We have to enjoy the occasion but make it a memorable night in Seville.”
Hearts manager Robbie Nielson: “It was just a tight groin. He thinks it’s just a tightness. That’s all it is. As soon as there was an issue we just got him off. There’s no point in taking any risks. It will just be dependent on the next day or two if it is just a tightness.”
