Robbie Neilson: Hearts now raring to go against Rangers

first_img“We’ve had good results previously against them here in recent times and it’s a great game to be involved in.“The players are already looking at the Rangers game, it brings that excitement to go and perform and get a result.”Johnsen shone for Hearts with his double either side of the break, while the Norwegian-American also had one disallowed over a contentious offside decision.Neilson said: “Bjorn is a good player, it’s taken him a wee while to get used to the way Scottish football is. He came from Bulgaria and he hadn’t really played since January. Hearts boss Robbie Neilson says his players are now looking forward to the midweek Scottish Premiership clash against Rangers after dispatching of Motherwell.Bjorn Johnsen bagged a brace with Jamie Walker completing the scoring for the Jam Tarts in a comprehensive 3-0 win over Motherwell at Tynecastle.Neilson’s side will move back up to second if they beat Mark Warburton’s side on Wednesday and the Hearts boss highlighted how his players are now raring to go.He said: “It’s huge for us, it’s a massive game and a great game to be involved in – it’s a while since they’ve been there. “It was important we gave him time. I think he showed that he has real quality. He’s been playing well the last couple of games he’s been involved.“I think you can see he is a handful. His fitness levels aren’t where they could be, he’s still got a bit to go.”last_img read more
