NEW Hearts signing Genero Zeefuik believes the Scottish Championship leaders can kill off Rangers’ title bid with a win at Ibrox on Friday night.

The Groningen striker, who has joined the Tynecastle side on loan until the end of the season, believes the Light Blues cannot afford to drop 16 points behind Robbie Neilson’s side.

The 24-year-old - who marked his debut with a double against Dumbarton on Saturday - told the BBC: “If we beat Rangers on Friday then I think it’s over.

“When Hearts came in, I looked at the league and saw they were 13 points above Rangers, so it was easy for me to say yes.

“I went on to Google yesterday and searched for Ibrox. It is a big stadium and on Friday I’m maybe going to play there.

“Every little boy wants to play in front of 40,000 people. It would be a perfect moment to play against Rangers. It will be a very good game.”
