  1. Rangers in seventh heaven

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    So, while champions Celtic are involved in the small matter of a League Cup final against Aberdeen, Rangers have edged into a one-point lead at the top of the Premiership - the first time they have been there for seven years.

    A few weeks after topping the table, Hearts, meanwhile, are now in fourth after a run of four consecutive defeats in the league.

    Join us for the next round of Premiership games on Wednesday, but don't forget to switch to our other live coverage for the aforementioned final, which is about to kick off at Hampden.

  3. Gerrard not concerned with topping table

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Rangers manager Steven Gerrard disagreed with counterpart Craig Levein about the officials, suggesting that they "were excellent" and "strong".

    Indeed, the thought his own midfielder, Scott Arfield, probably deserved his red card as his challenge on goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal "looked late".

    Asked whether his side could remain top of the Premiership, Gerrard told BT Sport: "We'll have to try. The pressure comes from behind now and they have games in hand.

    "But that's not important right now for me.

    "What's important is that we have come away from home against a big team and got a result."

  4. Gerrard hails Rangers' character

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is delighted with the way his side had performed considering they had a tough Europa League game on Thursday.

    "You've got to be resilient in this league, especially against teams like Hearts, who don't go away," he tells BT Sport.

    "No matter what the scoreline is, they keep coming and they've got a manager who fires them up.

    "When the game is 2-1, you know the game is still in the balance, but the lads have shown unbelievable mental strength and character.

    "We emptied it on Thursday night and had 72 hours to recover.

    "Hearts before the game were talking about energy and intensity, but we were the fitter and better today.

    "They were better for the first 20 minutes, but we completely dominated the game thereafter."

  6. 'Rangers putting pressure on Celtic'

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    Quote Message: Rangers are putting together a run of results that are putting pressure on Celtic and that's all they can do. They thoroughly deserved the three points. We've seen them handling going down to 10 men before and it was Hearts' only way back, but it didn't materialise
  7. Levein hits out at referee Madden

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Hearts manager Craig Levein was left angry by referee Bobby Madden's decisions and especially thought Alfredo Morelos was offside for Rangers' winner.

    "I've lost my voice shouting at the referee," he told BBC Scotland. "I thought it was a terrible performance.

    "How Morelos gets away with what he gets away with, I don't understand.

    "How many fouls can you give away without being booked?

    "Like Neil Lennon said when Hibs played Celtic at Celtic Park, it was like playing against 12 men.

    "I was delighted with the players after their difficult run and I feel that, on another day, it is a game we could have won."

  8. Good signs for Hearts

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    Quote Message: There were signs there for Hearts that they have that confidence back and I don't think they will keep tumbling all season. I think there will be a stage when they go on a run of results again
  9. 'Bad decision cost Hearts a point'

    FT: Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: I think Rangers were the better team. Hearts didn't do enough and, of course, Allan McGregor was making save after save. They didn't put enough pressure on the Rangers back four. Hearts were better than last week, but they still have a long way to come if they want to be competing at the top of the table. But, listen, I'm afraid a call, which was wrong, has cost Hearts two points
  10. Get Involved

    #bbcsportscot & BBC Sport Scotland Facebook page

    Kyle: Rangers deserve the win despite the controversial winning goal. It’s a massive win - great character shown, especially after the harsh red card. Rangers had more chances and deserved it - and my 2-1 Rangers prediction came true to. Cracking match.

    bringthemonjpn: What a day for Rangers, and no cup final to worry about.

  11. Rangers move top of the table...

  14. ADDED TIME

    Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Five minutes of added time at Tynecastle. Can Hearts find an equaliser? Or will 10-man Rangers hang on to claim top spot?

  15. Hearts spurn chance

  16. Rangers closing in on top spot

  17. Hearts 'inviting pressure'

    Hearts 1 - 2 Rangers

    Allan Preston

    BBC Scotland summariser

    Quote Message: That's what I don't get, when Rangers are down to 10 men Hearts are taking everyone down the park. Leave a couple up the park! It then means Rangers have to put three back to cover them and McGregor is four but bringing everyone back just invites pressure.
  18. Arfield should've 'just left it'

    Hearts 1-2 Rangers

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    Quote Message: What is he [Scott Arfield] doing? Seriously you've got to say that right away. Zlamal does well, he gets back makes the save. His two hands are on it - you just leave it. Sometimes you want to try to bundle it if he's scrambling but Arfield goes in and bundles it. Talk about letting someone back into the game.
