Thanks for your company tonight. Neither game was particularly exciting but all that matters for Hibs and Rangers fans is that their teams won. However, it's a sore one for Falkirk who lost ground in the Championship after that debatable penalty award for Hibs. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
- Rangers will host St Mirren in Petrofac Cup semi-final
- Nicky Clark fires in only goal
- FT: Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian
- Jason Cummings' penalty puts Hibs second in Championship
Rangers manager Mark Warburton
"I thought we dominated possession. Things went on out there that we have to learn from. It was frustrating tonight, I have to say. All credit to the players, they got their reward in the end."
So after 10 games Hibs have leapfrogged Raith Rovers and now sit second in the Championship on 22 points. Rangers are eight points ahead on a maximum of 30 points.
Iain Logan: "Good result for Rangers given Livi spent the entire second half trying to disrupt the game with handballs and shirt tugs #bbcscotfootball"
Hibs manager Alan Stubbs
"We are always looking for referees to be consistent. It's not an easy job, I understand that. I am surprised there was no fourth official here tonight when there are only two games on."
Hibs manager Alan Stubbs
"I was surprised (at the penalty) but if you look at the incident before it maybe that has had a bearing on why he has given it. We dealt with everything that Falkirk threw at us - long balls and crosses. Last season we were labelled with not being able to deal with that, I think we have answered that. This is a really good three points for us tonight. We showed another side to us, where we had to show a bit of mettle."
Falkirk manager Peter Houston
"I've got to watch what I say. I thought we deserved something from the match. I think errors have been made by Alan (Muir) over the last couple of games"
Falkirk manager Peter Houston
"I feel a little hard done by. I certainly don't think it was a penalty kick. We put a lot into the match and we ended up with nothing. I mentioned to the referee in a polite manner, no swear words, 'why did you give the penalty kick?' I have only seen it live. I think he has tried to knock it round him. Where is our guy meant to go?"
Andy Moles, East Kilbride: "I must check the rule book I was sure I was watching football. Disgraceful challenges by Livi and let's check the ref's undershirt. Ref/Livi lion."
The Petrofac Training Cup semi-finals between Rangers and St Mirren, and Queen's Park and Peterhead are scheduled for Saturday 14 November.
Rangers are through to the semi-final of the Petrofac Training Cup where they will host St Mirren.
Hibernian move up to second place in the Championship thanks to Jason Cummings' ninth goal of the season, a controversial penalty at the end of the first half.
Martyn Waghorn clips a cross on to the head of Nicky Clark but somehow the Rangers striker sends his effort wide of the target. One minute of the 90 remains.
BBC Scotland football pundit Allan Preston
"You'd think Hibs have enough now to see the match through. The three points are all that matter now."
Mark Burchill makes a double change for Livingston as Glen and Longridge make way for Currie and Georgiev.
Livingston have eight minutes plus stoppage time to take the match into extra-time.
Substitute Nicky Clark collects a Lee Wallace cross from the left and pings a low shot past Marc McCallum from the edge of the box. The keeper seemed to be unsighted.
Nicky Law looks in the mood to find a winner at Ibrox. The Gers midfielder is constantly looking for the ball and just there curled a shot past the Livi left-hand post.
BBC Scotland reporter Brian McLauchlin
"We're into the final 15 minutes at the Falkirk Stadium and the home side are pushing hard for an equaliser."
The attendance at the Falkirk Stadium is a healthy 5,429, of which about 1,800 are in green and white.
Former Hibs captain Craig Paterson
"Falkirk are winning every 50-50 battle out there. If you can't get your passing game going you've got to roll your sleeves up and fight."
Rangers are trying to stretch Livingston as they seek the breakthrough in the Petrofac Training Cup quarter-final. Having tried both wings, they go down the middle and some one-touch football releases Nicky Law in space in the box. His shot from 10 yards is parried by Marc McCallum towards Nicky Clark who can only scoop the ball over the bar.
Lee Miller collides with Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley as the Bairns push for a leveller. They have had the upper hand in the second half.
Lewis Stevenson is back to clear the danger for Hibs with a goal-saving challenge on Falkirk substitute John Baird.
Mr Hind is not impressed: "#bbcscotfootball Who cares if it was a penalty? It's Dog & Duck vs Punch Bowl. Sunday morning 'football' Boring. Conf South is better."
Anonymous: "Rangers have had 13 penalties in 10 games most very soft no uproar from press Hibs get 1 soft and it's end of the world."
Ronnie in Kirkcadly: "It was an absolutely clear and definite penalty. No question about it. Actually I've no idea if it was or not but as Hibs never get lucky penalties we'll take it!"
Rangers start brightly, with James Tavernier, Barrie McKay and Andy Halliday troubling the visitors. The latter has a shot deflected over the bar for a corner kick which comes to nothing. Livi have a chance to regroup.
Livingston get the second period going at Ibrox. Come on, guys, we need some goalmouth action!
Manager Mark Warburton has made a change for the second half. Nicky Clark comes on for Rangers forward Nathan Oduwa, who was the subject of two bad challenges in the first half.
And the game is under way again at Falkirk.
Falkirk fans speak to BBC Scotland's Brian McLauchlin
"It looked like a slip [by John McGinn]. It didn't look like a penalty to me."
"I think the standard of refereeing is abominable. He is giving Hibs everything.
"It was a foul on the Falkirk player before the penalty happened."
"I don't know what the referee is looking at it. The guy just jumped into it. It was never a penalty at all. It's disappointing because it is an even game. It is annoying when you get penalties like that against you."
Lennie: "Will you biased BBC commentators stop greeting your eyes out about the Hibs penalty. McGinn was pushed on the box. Penalty! Is that too hard for you to understand or is it because it is Hibs getting it?"
JFK, Inverclyde Hospital: "I have never seen anything as inept as Rangers were in the 1st half of this cup match. Let's hope that things improve in the 2nd half."
Mark Paterson: "What is your problem with Hibs I would like to know. Rangers get dodgy pens or free kicks nothing said Get a grip #bbcscotfootball"
On the stroke of half-time, Liam Buchanan pokes a speculative shot over the Rangers bar. It has been a poor first half.
