Hearts will also have a tribute to cup-winning captain Marius Zaliukas, whose death was announced during the semi-final win against Hibs.

The defender’s #26 will be included and remembered in the team’s day

Here’s what you have said about Robbie Neilson’s team - and it’s different to what we expected - and who you picked!
