Arnaud Djoum is under no illusions as to how big a game Hearts have in store this evening and believes the maroon faithful can play a crucial role in helping the Jambos to victory.
A Hearts win this evening would see them leapfrog Rangers into second place and Arnaud insists the dressing room is fully focused on securing the three points.
Speaking to the press ahead of tonight’s Ladbrokes Premiership encounter at Tynecastle, the Cameroon international said:
“The supporters are a big factor at Tynecastle. They give you so much motivation and really help you during games. It makes it easier to play," he said.
“It’s a very important game tonight, everyone knows games against Rangers are something special. The same as playing Celtic, they are big games.
“Everyone in the team wants to be part of games like this and they know how important tonight will be.
“This will be my first time playing against them and I’m really excited. We have to do everything to win this game.
“We want to finish as high up as possible in the league and this is another big game for us.
“This kind of game enables you to show how good you are. So it’s up to us to do everything we can to win.”
