Haris Vuckic: Rangers want to spoil Hearts' promotion party this weekend

Rangers forward Haris Vuckic wants to spoil Hearts' promotion party on Saturday.

Rangers forward Haris Vuckic has told Sky Sports that he and his team-mates want to spoil Hearts' promotion party this weekend.

Rangers face the Scottish Championship title-winners at Tynecastle this weekend in a crucial final day clash for Stuart McCall's side.

After a 2-2 draw with Falkirk last weekend, Rangers need to win to stand a chance of leapfrogging Hibernian into second place.

The team in second place are given an 'easier' route through the play-offs given that they play two fewer games, but that draw against Falkirk meant Rangers dropped into third place.

Should they stay there, McCall's men would face Queen of the South in a two-legged affair, with this weekend's game against Hearts a difficult task considering their success under Robbie Neilson this season - and they will be presented with the league trophy in front of their own fans on Saturday afternoon.

Rangers' biggest hope of causing an upset will be Newcastle loanee Vuckic, whose goal against Falkirk means he has now hit nine goals in 15 appearances for Rangers.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Vuckic admitted that he and his team-mates have set a target of spoiling Hearts' promotion party, in the hope of securing second place.

"It's going to be difficult because everybody is going to be very motivated, the fans and all the players," said Vuckic. "Of course they are going to try to win the last game and be deserved champions but our focus is on ourselves because we would like to be second to avoid two extra games in the play-offs so our target is to spoil their party."
