The host took the lead through Austrian star Peter Haring in the 24th minutes, and Cedric Itten equalized for the away team in the 33rd minutes before Alex Lowry scored a goal in the 45th minutes to end the first half 2-1.
Substitute Cole McKinnon scored the last goal of the game for the away team in the 81st minutes to end the match 3-1.
Leon Balogun was impressive for the away team in the game, and he was able to contribute to his team’s convincing comeback victory.
The victory over Hearts FC means Glasgow Rangers football club finished at the second spot of the Scottish Premier League table, and they’ve already secured their spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
