Following the loss to Rangers on Sunday, Naismith has made several key changes to the starting XI

Hearts have a busy week ahead of them, facing Livingston shortly before taking on Rangers for the second time in a week on Sunday in the Viaplay Cup semi-final.

After leading 1-0 for the majority of the 90 minutes, Philippe Clement’s squad managed to pull back two late goals to take the winning points away from Steven Naismith at Ibrox on Sunday. The Jambos now sit seventh in the league following the result but will hope to return to winning ways this evening as they take on a side currently in tenth place.
