Ian Smith in Carlisle - a happy Jambo: When it really matters, Hibs always blow it. They just haven't got the big match temperament. Well done Hearts; looking forward to next season.

Steve: Having endured the pain of Kilmarnock in 1965 and Dens Park in 1986, can someone reassure me that there is no possible gut-wrenching way for Hearts to lose this championship? Only asking...

'Pleased with all-round effort'

Rangers boss Stuart McCall

"It was a good performance; there were lots of good individual performances but in a team unit.

"As I said to the lads, the seasons still got a long way to go. Today was good, but just because of what's happened in the past, we've still got a long way to go - there's still a lot to play for. A result, a performance like that can only help the confidence which has been low.

"I'm just pleased with all-round effort and desire of the players. A lot of ability and quality in there as well, I thought at times we played good stuff.

"It was fantastic to see supporters who have been through a lot celebrating like that. That's the standard we've set now, we can't fall below that. People will talk about wanting to keep the jersey, but they've got to do it week in, week out. It's a starting block."

'A foul 100% of the time'

Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

"In terms of possession, I thought Rangers were better than us in the first half. In terms of chances created I didn't think there was a lot in it.

"Second half I thought our tempo was better; we were starting to come into the game and, unfortunately, a very, very poor decision has altered the course of the game.

Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

"I don't want to stand here and try to explain it because I don't think there's any to give.

"I've been in football a long time and I'll guarantee that's [Lee Wallace's challenge on Paul Hanlon] a foul 100% of the time".

Hearts win the title

Hibernian 0-2 Rangers

Rangers narrow the gap on second-placed Hibs to three points and, with victory, see Hearts secure the Championship title.

Hibernian 0-2 Rangers (Miller)

Rangers double their lead as Kenny Miller threads the ball beyond the onrushing Mark Oxley but Hibs are in uproar for what they believe should've been a foul on Paul Hanlon by Lee Wallace.

Hanlon is booked for his protests; Miller for his goal celebration. You had the feeling there'd be another goal in this one and Rangers double their lead.

Are those of a Hearts persuasion looking out the party hats and streamers?

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Sam Stanton is on for Scott Robertson as Alan Stubbs rolls the Hibs dice: his side need two goals in the 12 minutes remaining or Hearts will be league champions.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Scott Allan's 25-yard howitzer is deflected for a Hibs corner but the hosts fail to trouble Cammy Bell from the set piece.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Stuart McCall sends on Ian Black for Dean Shiels; not before giving the midfielder some tactical instruction with a series of elaborate hand movements; like offering top tips on how to reverse park on a busy street.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Lee Wallace appears Rangers' most creative outlet but he's still doing his defensive bit too; tracking back to mop up a Hibs counter attack by Fraser Fyvie.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

That missed chance if Franck Dja Djedje's final act as Alan Stubbs replaces him with Martin Boyle. Moments later, Lee Wallace feeds Nicky Clark but Hibs clear for a corner.

Hibs keeper Mark Oxley then tries to grab at the ball from the set piece like a man on a storm-tossed ferry trying to prevent a pickle falling from his fish supper.

There MUST be another goal in this one...

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Now it's Hibs' turn to spurn a gilt-edged chance. Franck Dja Djedje angles into the box after a calamitous mistake by Bilel Mohsni but seems to crumble in the box and dab it inside when he should really be getting a shot away.

How on earth have we only seen one goal today?

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

What a chance! Rangers launch a counter attack, cutting through Hibs like a knife through butter. Kenny Miller feeds Nicky Clark but the back-tracking Paul Hanlon somehow gets back to block his shot.

That could and should have been 2-0.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Good news from Easter Road if you're a Rangers or Hearts supporter. Lee Wallace's goal has put the former ahead, while the latter are a step closer to clinching the Championship title.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

*Speed klaxon sounds*

Suddenly the game is opening up as both sides attack each other with gusto and a bit of pace. Scott Allan is again at the centre of things for Hibs while Nicky Clark spurns a promising opening for Rangers.

Much, much better!

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Two chances within a minute. Kenny Miller scoops an effort over the Hibs bar before, up the other end, the unmarked Paul Henlon heads wide of the Rangers goal - much to the frustration of the Hibs fans and manager Alan Stubbs, who thunders back angrily into his chair in the dugout.

Encouragement for Hibs as Dylan McGeouch shows a bit of pace before clipping a ball into the box for Dominique Malonga, whose looping header fails to trouble Cammy Bell.

Dean Shiels hobbles to the touchline after going down with what seems to be cramp or hamstring trouble. Tempers beginning to fray at Easter Road.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Rangers come roaring forward on the counter attack after Lee Wallace nabs possession and have Hibs outnumbered.

However, he tries to outfox Scott Robertson who is equal to the task. Nicky Clark is roaring at his Rangers team-mate from inside the penalty area; the striker was completely unmarked.

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

The flow of the second half is disrupted by a couple of niggly fouls. Scott Allan is trying to create something for the hosts.

KICK-OFF

'I've really enjoyed it'

BBC Sportsound pundit Chick Young

"There's only been one shot on target in the game so far: Lee Wallace's goal. But I've really enjoyed it. It's not Barcelona v Real Madrid but it's entertaining in its own way."

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Our pundits on BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound have been eagle-eyed in spotting that Rangers' 3-5-2 formation has stifled Hibs in midfield.

Lee Wallace, who impressed in the opening 45 minutes, scored the only goal of the half.

How will Hibs respond? Will Rangers continue to keep it tight or will Stuart McCall chase a second goal?

Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

Rangers fans are dancing inside Easter Road and you'd imagine Hearts supporters are doing a wee Gangnam Style dance of celebration too.

Hibs needs to find two goals to prevent their Edinburgh rivals clinching the Championship title today.

Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

Ouch! Rangers launch another aerial assault on the Hibs penalty area, with keeper Mark Oxley careering off his line and leaping like Superman. He gets nowhere near the ball and clatters team-mate Paul Hanlon. That could've knocked out his false teeth...
