I'll sign off now. We'll be back for all the action tomorrow, with Premiership leaders Celtic away to St Johnstone in the lunchtime kick-off. You can catch the highlights from Ibrox on the BBC Sport website from midnight. The second goal is well worth staying up for.

Rangers manager Kenny McDowall on BBC Radio Scotland

"We showed great determination and passion. The players have been knocked but, to a man, I thought they were fantastic.

"Tonight they gave everything. They left it all on the pitch. We just can't get the ball over the line at the moment."

Tonight's display owed much to doughty defending, not the slick passing which Hibs have been praised for this season. A hat-trick of wins over Rangers with an aggregate score of 9-1? The travelling fans won't care a jot that it was not a vintage performance.

Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

"We showed a different side to us and showed a real steeliness. Rangers knocked us off our stride but what we always have is goals in the team.

"I'd like to finish top but it's Hearts' to lose. Do I think we can finish second? Yes, but it's a big ask. If we keep getting results like this is gives us a good chance."

Robbie Devenney: "#bbcscotfootball Lewis Steven 251 appearances, 4 goals. Fairly sure 3 of this goals have come in the last 50 appearances, he's on fire."

Mr H: "Embarrassing stuff from Rangers."

James Hainie: "A good, professional performance from Hibs."

John Dowson: "Rangers still have more than enough to hold off QoS and Falkirk #bbcscotfootball."

Lewis Stevenson

Lewis Stevenson doesn't score many and he can proud of his effort tonight. The left-back had to dig in and defend more than usual but he got forward to devastating effect on 85 minutes to knock in the second goal with a terrific volley.

Hearts can move a whopping 20 points clear at the top of the Championship if they see off Livingston at Tynecastle tomorrow. It will be an Edinburgh one-two at the top but Rangers do have three games in hand over the team in green.

Hibs had to absorb a lot of pressure throughout that second 45 minutes but they held firm with some stout defending and manufactured a wonderful goal on the break to break the spirit of a much-improved Rangers.

FULL-TIME

Rangers 0-2 Hibernian

It's a hat-trick of league wins over Rangers for Hibs, who leapfrog the Ibrox side into second place in the Championship.

YELLOW CARD

Rangers midfielder Andy Murdoch is booked for a lunge on Scott Robertson and gives away a foul in the Hibernian penalty box.

We're into stoppage-time and the home fans are streaming for the exits.

Hibs continue to sit deep as Rangers win a free-kick right on the edge of the penalty box D. The home side lay it to the side and out comes David Gray to charge down Dean Shiels shot. Why not have a dig from the dead ball?

Rangers suddenly look very tired after that fantastic finish from Lewis Stevenson.

SUBSTITUTION

Hibs striker Dominique Malonga trudges off and on comes Franck Dja Djedje for the last seven minutes or so.

Rangers striker Nicky Clark weaves past a couple of challenges to open up a shooting chance on the edge of the penalty box but Keith Watson throws himself into a block and deflects the ball over. The officials give a goal-kick...

GOAL

Rangers 0-2 Hibernian (Stevenson)

Boom! The sucker punch from Hibs as they finally string a few passes together in the Rangers half, Dominique Malonga races forward and plays in Fraser Fyvie who combines with Lewis Stevenson, floating a lovely pass in for the left-back to take it on the volley over his shoulder. Lee Robinson gets his hands on the ball but can't keep it out.

SUBSTITUTION

Rangers shake it up too, with strikers Jon Daly and Dean Shiels on in place of Haris Vuckic and Kris Boyd.

SUBSTITUTION

That's to be Scott Allan's last act tonight as he is replaced by recent signing Fraser Fyvie. The former Aberdeen man may add more steel to the midfield but it seems strange to take off your most creative player when the lead is so slender.

CLOSE!

The net is rippling and some of the visiting fans think Scott Allan's clever free-kick is in but his effort catches the side-netting, with keeper Lee Robinson scrambling to get down at his near post.

YELLOW CARD

Marius Zaliukas demonstrates why he is not a renowned goal-scorer as his shot from 20 yards skews wide - way wide - out for a shy wide. Soon after, the Rangers defender is booked for blocking off David Gray.

Rangers continue to shell crosses into the penalty box and Hibs continue to hold firm. It's a bit like a training exercise. Surely the visitors need to try and get on the ball and make some passes in midfield, which is where their best players are.

We're into the 70th minute now as Martin Boyle pops up behind the Rangers defence but there are no takers for the Hibs substitute's low cross from the right.

Kris Boyd does well to cushion a cross into the path of Nicky Clark but in comes a sliding Lewis Stevenson to make a goal-saving challenge right in front of goal. Hibs are living so dangerously as they defend deeper and deeper.

As it so often the case in these situations, Rangers roll the ball to Kris Boyd and the defensive wall breaks to block his effort. It was never a free-kick, so that's probably just as well.

Liam Fontaine mis-controls the ball and it ends up in the arms of keeper Mark Oxley. Referee Steven McLean rules it a back-pass and awards a free-kick 10 yards from goal. Controversial...

SUBSTITUTION

Hibs bring on fresh legs in the shape of Martin Boyle, with Jason Cummings making way.

Paul Hanlon is hesitant as long ball falls in his direction, allowing Haris Vuckic to lift it over him, but the Hibs defender recovers to make an important tackle before the Rangers midfielder can fire off a shot.

Hibs striker Dominique Malonga finally gets a second-half touch and promptly falls over. A shake of the head from manager Alan Stubbs...

Daryl 'of a morning': "Rangers look to have got their act together, just need that final edge, too many missed chances, at least there are chances #bbcscotfootball"

Will Hibs stick with this 3-5-2 formation for much longer? At the moment, they are pinned right back and their front two are simply passengers.

Rangers striker Kris Boyd gets his bald head on another cross as he drifts into space at the back post but he can only steer Nicky Law's excellent delivery over the top.

GREAT SAVE!

Haris Vuckic whips in a corner as the Rangers pressure continues, Sebastien Faure gets a stooping header on target and Mark Oxley is at full-stretch to claw away the looping ball, although Lewis Stevenson was well placed to clear on the goal-line.

YELLOW CARD

Hibs midfielder Scott Allan is booked for diving into a challenge on Andy Murdoch near the halfway line.

First sign of the vanishing spray as Haris Vuckic dinks in a free-kick and Kris Boyd's flicked header is not too far away from the top corner of the net.

The pattern of play continues in much the same manner, with Rangers harrying and closing down quickly. The Hibs strikers have not had a look in since the game resumed.

PENALTY APPEAL

More cries from the home support as good approach play from Rangers ends with Haris Vuckic going down in a heap with Paul Hanlon in close attendance but there was no real pressure on the midfielder at all and he might have been better trying to turn and shoot.

KICK-OFF

Hibs eventually show up and the game is up and running again...

The Rangers team is out for the second half nice and early.

There are a few Rangers players out there who have not played for a while. Will they be able to go the distance? Hibs will hope to pick the home side off on the break as they did so successfully on their last visit to Ibrox. At the moment, the men for Leith are on target for a hat-trick of wins over Rangers in the league...
