Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha paid the price for some poor results of late and we reckon his departure can help the Glasgow giants to play with more freedom against Hearts on Saturday.
The pressure had been mounting on the Portuguese manager for some time and that looked to have an adverse effect on his players this week.
Graeme Murty did a decent job in his first stint as caretaker coach last February and can steer the visitors to a 21/20 triumph at Murrayfield for our Hearts vs Rangers betting predictions.
A Look At Hearts’ Betting Odds
Hearts suffered a deflating derby defeat against Hibs on Tuesday and look a team to oppose on the evidence of that display.
To be fair, they did fall behind to a superb Simon Murray strike after only three minutes, but the response was poor as their local rivals dominated large parts of that contest.
“It was very bitty and we didn’t get going at all,” admitted Craig Levein. “We were better in the second half but I didn’t feel we did ourselves justice.”
Injury problems forced Levein to start defender Rafal Grzelak in midfield and he was then replaced by 16-year-old Harry Cochrane at half-time.
Looking at the Hearts vs Rangers odds, 27/10 for the visitors to prevail by more than one goal could prove good value.
A Look At Rangers’ Betting Odds
Rangers followed up a frustrating League Cup semi-final loss to Motherwell by slipping down to fourth in the Premiership table after Wednesday’s draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox.
Those results inspired the Gers’ board to take action and axe Caixinha after just 229 days in charge, making him the shortest serving manager in the club’s history.
However, prior to that double setback, Rangers had netted seven times in away wins over Hamilton and St Johnstone, so the talent is there if Murty can restore some confidence and self-belief.
The former defender’s last spell as caretaker boss began with a cup win over Morton, before ending with a 6-0 rout of Hamilton and a 1-1 draw with Celtic at Parkhead.
Murty will hope for a fast start to boost his chances of getting the top job on a permanent basis.
Playing this match at Murrayfield should help and we’re adding 23/10 for the visitors to lead at half-time and full-time to our Hearts vs Rangers betting tips.
