What channel is Rangers v Hearts on? Scottish Cup final TV details, live stream, kick-off time

The last silverware of the season is on the line as Rangers and Hearts go head-to-head at Hampden Park on Saturday in the Scottish Cup final.

For Rangers the match takes on even greater significance as they look to avoid ending the campaign without a trophy following the midweek penalty shoot-out defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League final in Seville.

It is a quick turnaround for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men who will look to put their European heartache behind them to lift the Cup for the first time since 2009.
