  1. Post update

    Thanks for your company tonight as Hibs shocked many people's pre-season Scottish Championship Rangers (not mine, I tipped Hearts!) at Ibrox to put themselves back into the promotion hunt. Join us again tomorrow night for the Scottish Premiership game between Aberdeen and St Mirren at Pittodrie. Bye for now.

    Stewart Syme: "Heard that Question Of Sport are looking for temporary captaincy replacements at present - is 'Super Ally' available perhaps?"

    Jack Kennedy: "Irony - Hibs' best result for yonks being an even better one for their fiercest rivals. Now six points clear."

    Tom Watson: "The second-half performance by Hibs was even more impressive than the first. At long last, composure, maturity & resolve." Glad to see you staying behind to watch the Hibees and not dwelling too much on that Ryder Cup defeat Tom ;-)

  5. Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I have always believed in the players. They have shown these performances but not got the result.

    "When it comes off, it's nice. The players have taken the knocks and perhaps deserve it, but now they deserve the credit.

    "It's hard to single anyone out after a performance like this as they all gave their all.

    "The way I am, every game is a must-win and it's only three points.

    "There's a long way to go, but it puts us in amongst them and can have a big bearing on what can happen."

  6. Post update

    Victory catapults Hibs from ninth place to fifth above Dumbarton. Alan Stubbs' side might now be 10 points behind leaders Hearts, but at least they have not lost further ground on their Edinburgh rivals and are back in the mix for the play-off places if not the title itself.

  7. Post update

    That defeat leaves Rangers six points behind Scottish Championship leaders Hearts. Some bookmakers have, as a result, put the Edinburgh side odds-on to win the title. They might be jumping the gun a bit, but it confirms my pre-season feeling that the Ibrox side were anything but clear favourites to top the table by the end of the season.

  8. Hibs wing-back Lewis Stevenson on BBC Radio Scotland

    "I enjoyed the first half. The second half, it was a bit backs to the wall.

    "But we defended well. The central defenders were outstanding.

    "We need to do that more often. If we play like that every week, we'll win more often than not."

  9. Post update

    Craig Paterson

    BBC Radio Scotland pundit at Ibrox

    "You've got to use a result like this and build on it. Hibs have been losing games they should have been winning. This must give everybody at the club a real lift. I am delighted for Alan Stubbs. He tried a system and it wasn't working, but he's changed it in the last couple of games and it's worked."

  10. Post update

    Hibs secure a deserved three points. The Edinburgh side were clinical on the break against a fairly toothless Rangers side devoid of ideas.

  11. FULL-TIME

    Rangers 1-3 Hibernian

  12. Post update

    Fraser Aird (I almost forgot he had come on for Rangers) sends in a dangerous cross that goes close to going straight into the Hibs net at the far post.

  13. Post update

    Alex Harris gives Rangers another nervous moment with a flashing drive that rises only a few feet over the crossbar from 20 yards.

  14. Post update

    Rangers are pressing and Darren McGregor heads powerfully towards goal as he rises to meet a corner, but the defender's downward effort is saved on the line by goalkeeper Mark Oxley.

  15. Post update

    Alex Harris impressively races clear of the Rangers defence and the substitute has a great chance to finish the game for Hibs. However, the midfielder's weak attempt is blocked by goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.

  16. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Kris Boyd stoops to head into the far corner of the net from eight yards from an in-swinging David Templeton cross. However, there's no goal as he is flagged rightly for offside.

  17. Post update

    It's the Hibs fans who are making most of the noise at Ibrox with six minutes left.

  18. Post update

    Alex Harris, whose light has somewhat faded after an impressive start to his Hibs career, comes on to replace two-goal Jason Cummings as manager Alan Stubbs looks to flood the midfield and take the sting out of the game.

    Robert: "Time for Ally McCoist to get the sack. He is clueless."

  20. Post update

    The official attendance is 31,619 at Ibrox. Pretty good for a second-tier fixture in Scotland, although Rangers did manage better in the two leagues below before the latest fan protests against the current board.

  21. Post update

    Nicky Law punches the air after scoring Rangers' goal
    Image caption: Nicky Law hauled Rangers back into the game with his goal shortly after the break.
  22. Post update

    Rangers goalkeeper Steve Simonsen saves low and well at his near post as slack play from Lee McCulloch hands Callum Booth a shooting chance from 20 yards.

  23. Post update

    Ian Black's curling free-kick is punched away nervously off the line by Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley and Rangers concede a foul in the penalty-box melee that follows.

  24. Post update

    Stevie Smith makes way for David Templeton, so often used to good effect by Rangers as an impact player from the bench. Can the former Hearts winger come back to haunt the Tynecastle club's Edinburgh rivals? Well, he immediately wins a free-kick off Lewis Stevenson after jinking run.

  25. Post update

    Hibs have managed to stem the Rangers tide and Ibrox is a tad subdued again.

  26. YELLOW CARD

    Hibs substitute Callum Booth is next to pick up an unfortunate booking as he attempts to stop the ball going for a Rangers goal-kick and clatters Darren McGregor.

  27. Post update

    Rangers manager Ally McCoist is relying on the heavy mob to rescue the game as he brings on Jon Daly up front beside Kris Boyd and withdraws the anonymous Dean Shiels.

  28. Post update

    Jordon Forster misses a great chance to restore Hibs' three-goal advantage. The big defender comes flying in at the back post but somehow misses the target with his header from 10 yards.

  29. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers' Darren McGregor, who looks out of sorts as a right-back rather than at centre-half, where he was so impressive with St Mirren, is unfortunate to pick up a booking for a late challenge on Callum Booth.

  30. Post update

    Craig Paterson

    BBC Radio Scotland pundit at Ibrox

    "The goal has put a completely different complexion on the game. Suddenly, Rangers are winning all the 50-50s and the crosses that were aimless previously are now on the button. Hibs' problem is, they are not used to winning."

  31. GOAL

    Rangers 1-3 Hibernian (Nicky Law)

    Game on at Ibrox. A corner falls to Nicky Law and the English midfielder's beautiful half-volley from 16 yards beats the outstretched hand of goalkeeper Mark Oxley via a deflection off a home head.

  32. Post update

    Rangers' Ian Black and Dean Shiels look shell-shocked
    Image caption: Rangers' Ian Black and Dean Shiels looked shell-shocked
  33. Post update

    Rangers are fortunate not to concede more than a corner as Lee McCulloch looks to drag the ball behind with his arm as he slides into a challenge on Dominique Malonga. Conceding a penalty would have probably seen the rows of seats empty even further at Ibrox.

  34. Post update

    Fraser Aird has come on for the hapless Arnold Peralta as Rangers manager Ally McCoist looks to the young winger to inspire an unlikely comeback.

  35. Post update

    Defender Callum Booth has come on for Hibs goalscorer David Gray at half-time. A bit of a surprise there as we were expecting Paul Hanlon to stay in the dressing-room after picking up a bloodied nose during the first half.

  36. KICK-OFF

    Rangers 0-3 Hibernian

    Hibs kick-off. Can they hold on to this healthy lead and effectively kick-start their season and promotion challenge?

  37. Post update

    I have only seen Hibs live twice this season, both times at Ibrox and both times they have played well. Second time round they seem destined for victory. What's happened in between?

    Gustavo Fring: "Give Hibs some credit and stop banging on about Rangers!" To be fair, Chick is presently waxing lyrical about the Hibs performance, and midfielder Scott Allan in particular, on BBC Radio Scotland.

  39. Post update

    Chick Young

    BBC Sport at Ibrox

    "Bilel Mohsni has been a disgrace for Rangers in that first half. I cannot believe what he was doing, asking the fans to get behind the team after that performance."

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Ibrox

    "This is a game that's been characterised by Hibs' brightness and the flaws in the Rangers team. Rangers have one tactic and that is long diagonal balls to Kris Boyd. There is absolutely no variety in the Rangers attack.

    "Rangers have the wrong shape, the wrong tactics and Hibs keep threatening to get in behind them. Rangers are a mess and, even if they sort it out, three goals seems like too big a mountain to climb."

  42. Post update

    Tunisia defender Bilel Mohsni waves and gesticulates wildly at the Rangers fans as he troops off at half time. Rangers fans give him a few thoughts of their own back.

  43. HALF-TIME

    Rangers 0-3 Hibernian

  44. Post update

    Jason Cummings celebrates his opening goal

    Keith McAdam: "This will be the real test for Hibs. Can they maintain a tight defence and keep a clean sheet?" I don't think they'll mind as long as Rangers don't score three!

  46. GOAL

    Rangers 0-3 Hibernian (Jason Cummings)

    The isolated boos have become a crescendo from the home fans as the same Hibs trio combine to leave Rangers in disarray. Dominique Malonga shows lovely composure to find Lewis Stevenson. The wing-back could have shot for goal himself but instead sets up Jason Cummings for a precise low side-footed finish from 14 yards.

  47. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Ibrox

    "Defender Bilel Mohsni over hits a pass then yells at the Rangers fans, who had reacted in anger."

  48. Post update

    Rangers are all at sea, with passes going astray and the fans groaning, moaning and even booing.

  49. Post update

    Paul Hanlon goes down after rising for a high ball with Kris Boyd and the Hibs physio is signalling that the central defender will need to be replaced.

  50. GOAL

    Rangers 0-2 Hibernian (David Gray)

    Dominique Malonga bides his time wide on Hibs left before setting up Lewis Stevenson for a cross to the back post, where defender David Gray rises above Steve Smith to head into the net from eight yards. Rangers are rocking now at two goals adrift.

  51. GOAL

    Rangers 0-1 Hibernian (Jason Cummings)

    Just as I was criticising Jason Cummings for squandering a chance, he pounces to stun Rangers. Arnold Peralta, the winger left to patrol his own half at a free-kick into the Hibs penalty area, makes a hash of his attempt to deal with a long clearance from goalkeeper Mark Oxley. Cummings pounces and drives the ball low under goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.

  52. Post update

    If only for Hibs' sake, Jason Cummings had a right foot. Lee McCulloch's poor clearance from a low Lewis Stevenson cross loops up invitingly for the unmarked Hibs striker 15 yards out. But, instead of hitting it first time, Cummings tries to move it on to his left foot and the effort is blocked.

  53. Post update

    Richard Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Ibrox

    "Neither side can afford to lose at Ibrox tonight, with Rangers six points behind Hearts at the top of the Championship and Hibernian second bottom. Onus is on the home side to impose themselves, but looks like a conservative line-up with Peralta and Smith on the flanks"

  54. YELLOW CARD

    Hibs forward Jason Cummings collects a stupid booking for a needless stamp on the top of midfielder Ian Black's foot.

  55. Post update

    Hibs manager Alan Stubbs is all smiles before kick-off
    Image caption: Hibs manager Alan Stubbs was all smiles before kick-off. Will he be as happy at the final whistle?
  56. CLOSE!

    Stevie Smith's low free-kick forces goalkeeper Mark Oxley to palm the ball away from the far post one-handed at full-stretch before the ball is cleared hastily by Paul Hanlon before a Rangers player can pounce on the loose ball. Relief for the travelling Hibs support.

  57. Post update

    A clumsy challenge by Paul Hanlon - where have we heard that before - sends Kris Boyd flying and gives away a free-kick just outside the Hibs area.

    Andy Morris: "Six minutes in and both teams deciding to play percentages and hit it long. Hopefully football breaks out soon." Come on Andy, you old cynic, it hasn't quite been as bad as that. I have seen at least three passes strung together.

  59. Post update

    A fine block from Hibs central defender Liam Fontaine denies Kris Boyd on the turn after Rangers pounce on a visiting error and the striker is found by Steven Smith's low cross.

  60. Post update

    The first shot of the match comes from Ian Black, but the Rangers midfielder's long-range effort is easily held by goalkeeper Mark Oxley.

  61. Post update

    Rangers are dominating the early possession with Hibs looking to threaten on the break.

  62. KICK-OFF

    Rangers start the first half in their traditional blue tops, with Hibs in white with green shorts.

  63. Post update

    Ibrox had been looking a bit sparce, but it is filling up now as the party songs start and the teams prepare for kick-off.

    Keith McAdam: "New manager, new players it takes time. But showing more each match. We can win tonight." I assume that's an optimistic Hibs fan. Good to hear that the mood is improving down Easter Road way.

  65. Post update

    Like Rangers, Hibs have made only once change. Former Dundee United midfielder Scott Allan, who has failed to live up to his promise since his switch from Tannadice to West Brom, comes in for Dylan McGeouch, the midfielder who is on loan from Celtic having been sent off against Ross County.

  66. Post update

    Arnold Peralta, the Honduras winger who has failed to live up to his billing since joining Rangers from Vida, comes into midfield for lively Canada Under-20 international Fraser Aird.

    It means that Nicky Clark misses out against through injury along with fellow striker Kenny Miller, while Jon Daly is only fit enough for a place on the bench.

  67. Post update

    Hibs fans, or anyone else, do you share Alan Stubbs' optimism that his side can still be a force in the promotion race? Give me your thoughts @CliveLindsayBBC.

  68. Post update

    Hibs manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We are a young team but know we've got the players who can have a say on how this season unfolds.

    "Because we haven't been good enough away from home, people paint a different picture, but we have only lost once at home.

    "What we've done here in a short space of time is really good, but what is most important is points on the table.

    "I have brought nine players in and they have all been good additions to the team, but when you have all that turmoil, it has taken more time than I would have liked to put it right."

  69. Post update

    Hibs' last victory at Ibrox was in November 2010 - 3-0 in the old Scottish Premier League.

  70. Post update

    It is the first league meeting between the sides this season. However, Rangers won when they met in the opening game of the season, beating Hibs 2-1 at Ibrox in the Challenge Cup despite the visitors looking impressive at times.

  71. Post update

    Although Hibs sit second bottom of the Championship table, a victory at Ibrox would propel them to fifth place.

  72. Post update

    Hibs are hoping to build on their 2-0 win away to Premiership strugglers Ross County in the Scottish League Cup last Tuesday but have yet to win away from home in the league this season.

  73. Post update

    Rangers have gone nine games without defeat since losing at home to Hearts on 10 August.

  74. Post update

    Rangers are hoping to narrow the gap between themselves and Scottish Championship leaders Hearts to three points by winning their game in hand.

    The two sides at Ibrox were expected to be challenging for the title and promotion this season along with Hearts, with Hibs having been surprisingly relegated last season while Rangers won League One at a canter. However, Hibs sit second bottom of the Championship table.

    Good evening and welcome to our coverage of the Scottish Championship game at Ibrox between Rangers and Hibernian.
