LEE Wallace doesn’t think uncertainty over Robbie Neilson’s future as Hearts manager will have any bearing on the result of tonight’s game.
The Gers full-back thinks the Jambos won’t lose focus over Neilson’s potential move to English League One side MK Dons.
Rangers have a tough trio of games coming up with Hearts-Aberdeen-Hearts to take on in the next 10 days and Wallace thinks the Light Blues are capable of winning all three.
He said: “They are a well-structured side, well managed and well coached.
“To come from where they have with us in the Championship, they came up and did ever so well deploying a style of play that the club needed at that point and they have carried it into last season and secured European football.
“I have had experience of managerial uncertainty but it will not make one bit of difference for how the game goes or Hearts’ preparation.
“Irrespective of whether it is Robbie Neilson in the dugout tomorrow night or Jon Daly or Craig Levine, they will be Hearts and they will be ready to go for the game, as will we.
“It is a big period for us but it is a challenge and one we are all looking forward to but looking no further than tomorrow night.
“We believe we’re good enough to win these three games coming up; every game has the same tag that we know the teams we play will be really competitive.”
Wallace knows all about the Tynecastle atmosphere having been a Hearts player for five seasons.
Hearts could move second with a win over Rangers thanks to their superior goal difference.
The Gers skipper said: “We know it is going to be a difficult one, they will be a tough opponent and it is going to be an electric atmosphere, I know that first hand from experiencing it as a home player.
“On night games with the fans and how they get behind the team creates something. We know that will be the case and we also know our fans will travel in their numbers and be superb on the night.
“Every player who is out there is there to make sure we get the three points and send them home happy.
“We know every team will raise their game, be right on it and they’re going to make it difficult for us whether they are a second place rival, third placed or fourth placed, whatever it may be.”
