ROBBIE NEILSON admitted his Hearts players are looking forward to the midweek visit of Rangers after their 3-0 demolition of Motherwell yesterday.
A double from Bjorn Johnsen and one from Jamie Walker handed the Tynecastle side their first win in five matches after a stuttering sequence.
The Jambos boss said: “It’s huge for us, it’s a massive game and a great game to be involved in. It’s been awhile since they’ve been here.
“We’ve had good results previously against them here in recent times and it’s a great game to be involved in.“The players are already looking at the Rangers game, it brings that excitement to go and perform and get a result.”

Neilson insisted there is still more to come from American striker Johnsen after watching the player take his total for the season to four.

He added: “Bjorn is a good player, but it has taken him a wee while to get used to Scottish football.

“He came from Bulgaria and he hadn’t really played since January.

“It was important we gave him time. He has been paying well the last couple of games he’s been involved.

“I think you can see he is a handful, his fitness levels aren’t where they could be, he’s still got a bit to go.”
