Story of the game

Hibs started and finished this game the stronger side, scoring early and then again in the final quarter to take victory.

Rangers dominated for a large spell in the middle but could only find the one goal.

Liam McLeod

BBC Sport commentator at Easter Road

Hibernian defender Paul Hanlon

"Hibs have a priceless three points."

Paul Hanlon celebrates after scoring for Hibernian against Rangers

Paul Hanlon's goal takes Hibs to within five points of Scottish Championship leaders Rangers, who fail to win in the league for the first time this season.

Martyn Waghorn volleys into the hands of Mark Oxley but the Rangers striker was also penalised for a push.


There will be four minutes of stoppage time, two already played.

Martyn Waghorn is perhaps fortunate to still be on the pitch as he remonstrated with Fyvie during that melee on the pitch and the Rangers striker has already been booked.


Hibs' Marvin Bartley and Rangers' Andy Halliday are booked for dissent and Fraser Fyvie is also cautioned.

There's a flash point as Rangers players express anger at Fraser Fyvie's heavy challenge on Barrie McKay.

James Tavernier's lofted pass finds Martyn Waghorn in the Hibs area but the Rangers striker lifts his shot well over.

Nathan Oduwa takes out Fraser Fyvie as the Hibs midfielder tries to break and the Rangers player is cautioned.

BBC Scotland at Easter Road

"What a game this is turning out to be at Easter Rd. Just as it looked as if Rangers were about to go in front Hibernian score! Will there be another shuffle in the Rangers pack or will Hibs hold on for what could be a vital three points?"

Rangers have gone straight back on the attack after losing that goal. Jason Holt had a shot blocked by the Hibs defence and now there is a stop in play as Rangers forward Martyn Waghorn gets treatment on an ankle knock.

Paul Hanlon scores for Hibernian against Rangers

Hibs are ahead again. John McGinn's inswinging corner is missed by goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and Paul Hanlon is on hand to power home a header.


John McGinn's influence in this game is growing all the time. His free-kick from the right is tipped over by Wes Foderingham.

BBC Radio Scotland pundit Willie Miller says that was "a typical striker's tackle".


Very late tackle by Martyn Waghorn takes out John McGinn as the Hibs midfielder is on the run and the Rangers striker gets booked.


Rangers frustrated again as Nathan Oduwa's bending shot bounces on to the post. This game is so open.

It was a great pass from John McGinn for the Jason Cummings chance but the striker's take by chesting the ball forward away from his marker was also exquisite.


Another change for Hibs. James Keatings replaces Liam Henderson.


Hibs break and Jason Cummings gets clear from John McGinn's superb pass. The diminutive forward is one-on-one with Wes Foderingham but the keeper prevails, diving to his right.


Andy Halliday gets to the byline and tries to deliver a cross. The ball bounces up on to the arm of David Gray but not penalty given.

Stew Ross: "Typical Hibs I'm gutted looks like we are staying down again."

Rangers have controlled possession in the last few minutes and are finding all sorts of space in Hibs' territory.


Nathan Oduwa and Gedion Zelalem replace Nicky Clark and Danny Wilson in Rangers' first changes.


Rangers very close to getting the lead. Martyn Waghorn latches on to James Tavernier's chipped pass and forces an excellent save from Mark Oxley. The loose ball falls for Lee Wallace, whose shot is deflected on to the crossbar by Darren McGregor.


John McGinn's rising shot swerves past the left-hand post. Good effort from the Hibs midfielder.

Carelessness from Fraser Fyvie allows Rangers easy possession deep inside the Hibs half. Barrie McKay finds James Tavernier on the right and the full-back's teasing cross just evades Nicky Clark.


Rob Kiernan clears a low ball into the Rangers box and the defender's intervention flies just wide of his own goal. From the corner, Marvin Bartley's low effort slips past the right-hand post.

The Rangers equaliser has been credited as a Darren McGregor own goal.


Hibernian 1-1 Rangers (McGregor, own goal)

Rangers' Lee Wallace has a shot against Hibernian that deflects into the net

Just the start to the second half that Rangers would have wanted. Lee Wallace receives Martyn Waghorn's pass wide on the left, is given time to unleash a shot and the strike takes a deflection off Darren McGregor on its way in.


Hibernian 1-0 Rangers

The match resumes with Rangers kicking off the second half.
