He had played just over 70 minutes in Rangers’ draw in Lyon in the Europa League days prior.

Ahead of the match at Tynecastle Park, manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst confirmed the striker would be missing for an undetermined time.

"We don't know the exact injury or how long he's going to be out,” he said. “We have to wait until the doctor tells us the extent of the injury."
