Only three players from the March 2014 win on penalties over Inverness were in the team for Sunday's win over the Gers at the national stadium, while only five names from the weekend were in the squad which lost the League Cup final to Celtic in 2016/17.

"He'll have them well drilled and hard to play against".

Fans were fuming with his display and took to Twitter to have their say... Fergie's made a massive impact since he joined the club.

"We have to live with that pain and disappointment and it is tough".

"It's going to be hard". We did everything but create clear-cut chances.

"If you've got anything about you it should hurt for a little while and in the coming performances you should take that frustration out on the other team".

They can move as high as second with a victory over Wednesday night's opponents Kilmarnock, however, but there is no guarantee of three points at Ibrox.

Hearts now have a five-point cushion at the top of the SPL after a scintillating start to the season has seen them win eight of their opening ten games.


Since bursting on to the scene last season and captaining Scotland in Mexico over the summer, McKenna has been the subject of continued big-money bids from English clubs, including Aston Villa.

Quizzed on whether he might have done anything differently, Gerrard replied: "I probably wouldn't have played Morelos against Ayr United - that's one regret that's swirling around in my head right now, and I'll learn from that".

Celtic have won 21/21 Cup games under the Irishman, scoring 67 goals and conceding only seven!

"We have kept clean sheets against Hibs and Rangers in the cup and hopefully we can do the same against Celtic in the final".

McKenna was proud of how the team stuck it out together, despite these difficulties.

"But there is still a lot to play for this season and I'm sure we will be challenging on all fronts come the end of the season".

Accies picked up their first point in four Premiership matches with a 1-1 draw at Kilmarnock last Saturday.
