Rangers vs Hearts team news confirmed as Philippe Clement rings changes from Dens draw

Philippe Clement and Steven Naismith will both have major decisions to make this afternoon as Rangers face Hearts at Hampden.

The second Scottish Cup semi-final of the weekend takes place at the national stadium with both sides knowing it'll be Celtic waiting for them in the final later this season. If this afternoon's semi is to be half as dramatic as yesterday's, fans of both clubs are in for an action-packed 90 or so minutes with extra-time and penalties always looming, as we saw after the 3-3 draw between the Hoops and Aberdeen yesterday.

Naismith has warned Gers that his Jambos side have "evolved" from previous outings between the two this season and the head coach will surely feel now is the best time to face the Light Blues.

Rangers have drawn with both Celtic and Dundee in recent weeks while defeat to Ross County will also still be ringing in their ears. That's why Clement has had to handle big personnel calls for this one.
