Hearts have shocked Rangers once again at Tynecastle, securing a Scottish semi-final berth in the process.

Daniel Stendel’s men have beaten Rangers 1-0 in the Scottish Cup quarter finals thanks to a second half Oliver Bozanic strike. Lewis Moore rounded Gers keeper Allan McGregor, squaring it to the Australian who made sure to make his big opportunity count.

The game wasn’t to be without a plethora of talking points. Hearts had an injury setback early on as John Souttar was taken off with a nasty achilles injury. The Jambos also had it in the back of the net through Loic Damour in first half stoppage time but eventually it was ruled out for offside.

Deadlock was finally broken through Bozanic 52 minutes in and Stendel’s men managed to hold firm for a huge victory. It gives them another date at Hampden and another great result over Rangers. That’s three consecutive games now that Rangers have tried and failed to win in Gorgie.

Whether this has a positive boost on their Premiership survival charge remains to be seen, but as you can imagine, some Hearts fans were elated with another Gers victory.
