Fulham boss Chris Coleman praised Hearts after the Cottagers’ 2-0 win in Saturday’s friendly at Tynecastle.
“They will be no pushovers next season. I see no reason why they won’t give Rangers and Celtic a hard time,” the Welshman admitted.
“At times, we found it difficult to get the ball off them, and it’s usually us who do that to teams.
“We managed to keep a clean sheet, which was pleasing after the (recent) Celtic and Rangers results.”
