Scottish Premiership top-seconders, Rangers FC today defeated Hearts for the seventh consecutive time to ensure they thwart Celtic title celebration title against Hibernian on Sunday in a very comfortable 3-1 away win.

Steven Gerrard’s side used only 15 minutes to make their early dominance tell through a Jermain Defoe finish before Ryan Jack fired the second via Daniel Candeias assist.
