ROBBIE NEILSON said farewell to Hearts last night after guiding them to a 2-0 win over Rangers at Tynecastle.
Ironically, the 36-year-old kicked off his managerial career at the club with a 2-1 win over the Ibrox side in August 2014.
Now he is heading for struggling English League One club MK Dons and is certain to take his Jambos assistant Stevie Crawford with him.
Neilson remained tight-lipped about the move before and after the victory over the Ibrox side.
Robbie Muirhead scored his first goals for the club to leave them second behind Celtic in the Premiership – and Neilson is now joining a team sitting 19th in England’s third tier.
The spotlight swung dramatically away from the outgoing Hearts boss to Mark Warburton as the action unfolded and Rangers just couldn’t produce the goods.
Gers have now won just one of seven games in the league against sides who finished in the top six last season and host Aberdeen in another huge test at Ibrox on Saturday.
December will be a testing month for Warburton as Hearts and Celtic also head to Govan after the Dons.
The pressure is beginning to mount on the Ibrox gaffer who turned on his players after the defeat in Edinburgh.
Derek McInnes and his Pittodrie men are determined to add to the misery at the weekend.
