Hearts were beaten for only the second time this season, and the first time away from home, when we slipped to defeat at 10-man Rangers on Sunday, who moved above Hibernian as a result.

Two first half goals, and a sending off, left Rangers in control with our late goal not enough in our two-one defeat at Ibrox so we'll not go the entire away season without defeat, which takes marginal gloss off our Championship winning season.

A guard of honour was formed for us as we took to the field but it was Rangers that had the upper hand in the opening exchanges.

Having threatened Rangers finally broke through when Wallace cut back to Miller (28) who did what he's done for many a year to calmly finish past Alexander.

We could, and should, have had a chance to draw level when Walker got onto the end of Zaliukas backwards header, that was falling short of 'keeper Bell, but the ref determined that an earlier foul had been committed and stopped play to prevent us this chance.

This decision was made worse soon after when Shiels gave Vuckic (38) the chance, which he took, to make it two-nil before half time, and before this Rangers also went down to 10-men when McCulloch saw red for an elbow on Sow.

Hearts had the possession in the second half but couldn't do much with it with Rangers having the better chance to add to their lead before Zeefuik (83) pulled one back for us late on, when he followed up a Sow headed that was kept out by Bell, to score from literally a yard out but it wasn't enough.
