‘We really think we can pull through’: message sent by Hearts midfielder to Rangers


Rangers’ Glen Kamara (left) gets into a fight with Hearts’ Cammy Devlin during an early season game between the two teams.

For the first time this season, the Ibrox club have dropped points in back-to-back home games, costing them their place at the top of the Premiership table.

A third slip in succession would further inflame that disappointment. But while the outcome of Sunday’s lunchtime game between Motherwell and Celtic could seriously influence the mood and patience levels in the stands when the final game kicks off, Hearts have a responsibility to stay tuned. mind despite everything.

Setting themselves the goal of improving results in Glasgow, they have so far managed a 1-1 draw at Ibrox and a controversial 1-0 loss to Celtic, but there is a belief within the camp that they can go even higher.

“We all saw the [Old Firm] The game and Celtic have come out on top so Rangers will try to get a reaction out of that,” Hearts’ Australian midfielder Cammy Devlin said. “They are back home in front of their fans, but we will focus on ourselves and trust our structure. We really think we can get away with it.”

But, while backing himself and his colleagues up, Devlin isn’t foolish enough to write off the Rangers. Especially not with the likes of Aaron Ramsey lurking in the shadows.

“Aaron Ramsey’s career speaks for itself, he came from Juventus and played for years at Arsenal. He is a top player and I saw him at home in the [English] Premier League for so many years.

“He’s going to want to make his mark and it’s our job to try and stop him if he plays, but he’s not the only player we’re going to focus on.

“We are going to focus on ourselves and if he is on the pitch we will have to nullify what he does well, but it is the same with all the players. He’s a great player and everyone knows Aaron Ramsey, so it’s going to be great to play him, but we’re going to have to try and make sure he doesn’t do too much.

“Individually they are very good players and that creates a good team. Go to Ibrox for the first time, [Joe] Aribo and [Glen] Kamara are great players and against Celtic you have McGregor, Hatate who just came in was really good at Tynecastle the other day. I personally love that as a player. If you challenge yourself against the best players, you will only get better.

“You don’t want to be in your comfort zone playing with players who may not be that good. You want to face the best.”

“[Celtic and Rangers] They are very good teams, there is no doubt about that. It would be silly to say that they are not. They have great players and a good crowd, but we’re sitting where we are for a reason: 10 points ahead in third place. We are not far away, we are doing very well. We went to Ibrox and got a draw, we went to Celtic Park and lost 1-0 with possibly a goal that shouldn’t have been a goal. If we go in there and do what we work on in training, there’s no reason we can’t do it.”
