Rangers made two changes from their midweek Champions League victory over Bursaspor for the visit to Hearts in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

Nikica Jelavic – ineligible for Europe – and Vladimir Weiss were both back in the starting line-up for the lunchtime clash at Tynecastle as Rangers attempted to maintain their 100% start to the season.

Lee McCulloch and Kirk Broadfoot both dropped out of the side, with hip and foot injuries respectively.

Hearts: Kello, Bouzid, Barr, Mrowiec, Craig Thomson, Jonsson, Black, Skacel, Obua, Kyle, Elliot.

Subs: Balogh, Palazuelos, Santana, Templeton, Stevenson, Jason Thomson, Glen.

Rangers: McGregor, Whittaker, Weir, Bougherra, Papac, Naismith, Davis, Edu, Weiss, Miller, Jelavic.

Subs: Alexander, Lafferty, Foster, Webster, Little, Wylde, Hutton.

Referee: C Thompson (Scotland)
