Craig Paterson on Hibs goalie Mark Oxley

"You could see the back four looking the same way, as if 'the keeper has got to save that'. Take nothing away from the strike by Tavernier. He got it up, he got it down and it clipped the underside of the bar."

Frustration for Hibs boss Alan Stubbs as Martin Boyle crosses the ball into the box when there was no-one up to support him.

Eight yards from goal, Kenny Miller tries a toe poke rather than putting his boot through the ball and Rangers may not get a better chance than that to score a second.

GOAL

Rangers 1-0 Hibernian (Tavernier)

Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

Hibs have a glorious chance to score the opener as Jason Cummings gets clear of Danny Wilson and rolls the ball along to Liam Henderson who had an age to take a touch and lash a shot at goal; instead, he hits a right-footed shot first time and the ball sails into the Broomloan Road stand.

Hibs get us under way again.

Former Rangers striker Jon Daly

"Hibs have Dominic Malonga, Dylan McGeouch and Sam Stanton as subs. I have been impressed with Liam Henderson, he has that ability to play the killer pass. On the bench Rangers have Nicky Clark, who is a goal threat."

HALF-TIME

Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

Well, that was lively. At one point, what with the glorious sunshine and the break-neck pace of the game, I wondered if we might see a water break - would that be a first in Scottish football? A couple of chances fell to each team, with Martyn Waghorn's header over the bar perhaps the best for the home side and Jason Cummings' shot just before the interval probably the best. A draw is fair, I'd say, so far.
