  1. Post update

    I'll sign off now. We'll be back for all the action tomorrow, with Premiership leaders Celtic away to St Johnstone in the lunchtime kick-off. You can catch the highlights from Ibrox on the BBC Sport website from midnight. The second goal is well worth staying up for.

  2. Post update

    Rangers manager Kenny McDowall on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We showed great determination and passion. The players have been knocked but, to a man, I thought they were fantastic.

    "Tonight they gave everything. They left it all on the pitch. We just can't get the ball over the line at the moment."

  3. Post update

    Tonight's display owed much to doughty defending, not the slick passing which Hibs have been praised for this season. A hat-trick of wins over Rangers with an aggregate score of 9-1? The travelling fans won't care a jot that it was not a vintage performance.

  4. Post update

    Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

    "We showed a different side to us and showed a real steeliness. Rangers knocked us off our stride but what we always have is goals in the team.

    "I'd like to finish top but it's Hearts' to lose. Do I think we can finish second? Yes, but it's a big ask. If we keep getting results like this is gives us a good chance."

    Robbie Devenney: "#bbcscotfootball Lewis Steven 251 appearances, 4 goals. Fairly sure 3 of this goals have come in the last 50 appearances, he's on fire."

    Mr H: "Embarrassing stuff from Rangers."

    James Hainie: "A good, professional performance from Hibs."

    John Dowson: "Rangers still have more than enough to hold off QoS and Falkirk #bbcscotfootball."

  6. Post update

    Lewis Stevenson

    Lewis Stevenson doesn't score many and he can proud of his effort tonight. The left-back had to dig in and defend more than usual but he got forward to devastating effect on 85 minutes to knock in the second goal with a terrific volley.

  7. Post update

    Hearts can move a whopping 20 points clear at the top of the Championship if they see off Livingston at Tynecastle tomorrow. It will be an Edinburgh one-two at the top but Rangers do have three games in hand over the team in green.

  9. Post update

    Hibs had to absorb a lot of pressure throughout that second 45 minutes but they held firm with some stout defending and manufactured a wonderful goal on the break to break the spirit of a much-improved Rangers.

  10. FULL-TIME

    Rangers 0-2 Hibernian

    It's a hat-trick of league wins over Rangers for Hibs, who leapfrog the Ibrox side into second place in the Championship.

  11. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers midfielder Andy Murdoch is booked for a lunge on Scott Robertson and gives away a foul in the Hibernian penalty box.

  12. Post update

    We're into stoppage-time and the home fans are streaming for the exits.

  13. Post update

    Hibs continue to sit deep as Rangers win a free-kick right on the edge of the penalty box D. The home side lay it to the side and out comes David Gray to charge down Dean Shiels shot. Why not have a dig from the dead ball?

  14. Post update

    Rangers suddenly look very tired after that fantastic finish from Lewis Stevenson.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Hibs striker Dominique Malonga trudges off and on comes Franck Dja Djedje for the last seven minutes or so.

  16. Post update

    Rangers striker Nicky Clark weaves past a couple of challenges to open up a shooting chance on the edge of the penalty box but Keith Watson throws himself into a block and deflects the ball over. The officials give a goal-kick...

  17. GOAL

    Rangers 0-2 Hibernian (Stevenson)

    Boom! The sucker punch from Hibs as they finally string a few passes together in the Rangers half, Dominique Malonga races forward and plays in Fraser Fyvie who combines with Lewis Stevenson, floating a lovely pass in for the left-back to take it on the volley over his shoulder. Lee Robinson gets his hands on the ball but can't keep it out.

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Rangers shake it up too, with strikers Jon Daly and Dean Shiels on in place of Haris Vuckic and Kris Boyd.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    That's to be Scott Allan's last act tonight as he is replaced by recent signing Fraser Fyvie. The former Aberdeen man may add more steel to the midfield but it seems strange to take off your most creative player when the lead is so slender.

  20. CLOSE!

    The net is rippling and some of the visiting fans think Scott Allan's clever free-kick is in but his effort catches the side-netting, with keeper Lee Robinson scrambling to get down at his near post.

  21. YELLOW CARD

    Marius Zaliukas demonstrates why he is not a renowned goal-scorer as his shot from 20 yards skews wide - way wide - out for a shy wide. Soon after, the Rangers defender is booked for blocking off David Gray.

  22. Post update

    Rangers continue to shell crosses into the penalty box and Hibs continue to hold firm. It's a bit like a training exercise. Surely the visitors need to try and get on the ball and make some passes in midfield, which is where their best players are.

  23. Post update

    We're into the 70th minute now as Martin Boyle pops up behind the Rangers defence but there are no takers for the Hibs substitute's low cross from the right.

  24. Post update

    Kris Boyd does well to cushion a cross into the path of Nicky Clark but in comes a sliding Lewis Stevenson to make a goal-saving challenge right in front of goal. Hibs are living so dangerously as they defend deeper and deeper.

  25. Post update

    As it so often the case in these situations, Rangers roll the ball to Kris Boyd and the defensive wall breaks to block his effort. It was never a free-kick, so that's probably just as well.

  26. Post update

    Liam Fontaine mis-controls the ball and it ends up in the arms of keeper Mark Oxley. Referee Steven McLean rules it a back-pass and awards a free-kick 10 yards from goal. Controversial...

  27. SUBSTITUTION

    Hibs bring on fresh legs in the shape of Martin Boyle, with Jason Cummings making way.

  28. Post update

    Paul Hanlon is hesitant as long ball falls in his direction, allowing Haris Vuckic to lift it over him, but the Hibs defender recovers to make an important tackle before the Rangers midfielder can fire off a shot.

  29. Post update

    Hibs striker Dominique Malonga finally gets a second-half touch and promptly falls over. A shake of the head from manager Alan Stubbs...

    Daryl 'of a morning': "Rangers look to have got their act together, just need that final edge, too many missed chances, at least there are chances #bbcscotfootball"

  31. Post update

    Will Hibs stick with this 3-5-2 formation for much longer? At the moment, they are pinned right back and their front two are simply passengers.

  32. Post update

    Rangers striker Kris Boyd gets his bald head on another cross as he drifts into space at the back post but he can only steer Nicky Law's excellent delivery over the top.

  33. GREAT SAVE!

    Haris Vuckic whips in a corner as the Rangers pressure continues, Sebastien Faure gets a stooping header on target and Mark Oxley is at full-stretch to claw away the looping ball, although Lewis Stevenson was well placed to clear on the goal-line.

  34. YELLOW CARD

    Hibs midfielder Scott Allan is booked for diving into a challenge on Andy Murdoch near the halfway line.

  35. Post update

    First sign of the vanishing spray as Haris Vuckic dinks in a free-kick and Kris Boyd's flicked header is not too far away from the top corner of the net.

  36. Post update

    The pattern of play continues in much the same manner, with Rangers harrying and closing down quickly. The Hibs strikers have not had a look in since the game resumed.

  37. PENALTY APPEAL

    More cries from the home support as good approach play from Rangers ends with Haris Vuckic going down in a heap with Paul Hanlon in close attendance but there was no real pressure on the midfielder at all and he might have been better trying to turn and shoot.

  38. KICK-OFF

    Hibs eventually show up and the game is up and running again...

  39. Post update

    The Rangers team is out for the second half nice and early.

  40. Post update

    There are a few Rangers players out there who have not played for a while. Will they be able to go the distance? Hibs will hope to pick the home side off on the break as they did so successfully on their last visit to Ibrox. At the moment, the men for Leith are on target for a hat-trick of wins over Rangers in the league...

    Duncan mcqueen: "An objective opinion... Rangers vastly improved but strikeforce not so #bbcscotfootball"

    Hughiekel: "The fans might as well be outside, nothing for Rangers inside. #bbcscotfootball"

  42. Post update

    Rangers have been tigerish in their approach and have shown a desire and tempo that has been sorely missing of late. However, they have perhaps been rushing things in the final third.

  43. HALF-TIME

    Rangers 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibs celebrate Scott Robertson's goal

    Well, Hibs are in front but they have not really been at their slick best, with strikers Dominique Malonga and Jason Cummings both guilty of wasting possession in promising positions. Midfielders Scott Allan and Dylan McGeouch have had a few nice touches and Scott Robertson popped up with the goal.

  44. Post update

    Into first-half stoppage time and Rangers have Hibs pinned back in their own penalty box but the home side do not have their shooting boots on as a series of wild efforts are blocked. The visitors then break at pace with striker Jason Cummings drilling an effort across goal and his forward partner Dominique Malonga not exactly busting a gut to get anywhere near it...

  45. Post update

    Rangers come again and some more neat interplay tees up a chance for Nicky Law, who takes aim for the far, top corner with a curling strike but the ball flies well wide.

  46. Post update

    Hibs keeper Mark Oxley gets down at his near post to collect a daisy-cutter from Haris Vuckic following a period of good pressure from the hosts.

  47. Post update

    Hibs are just a bit slack in their passing with Rangers still snapping and snarling away. Manager Alan Stubbs doesn't look too happy on the touchline, even though his side are in front.

  48. Join the debate at #bbcscotfootball

    Miguel Juans: "Rangers started well but not enough quality in possession so far... #bbcscotfootball"

  49. Post update

    Some of the home fans are crying for a penalty as Nicky Clark stumbles but there was no contact, the Rangers striker just lost his balance trying to spin on a pass. Kris Boyd then drills in an angled shot from 20 yards to keep Mark Oxley on his toes.

  50. SUBSTITUTION

    Rangers are forced into an early change as Kenny Miller limps off to be replaced by Nicky Clark.

  51. Post update

    Scott Allan leaves Haris Vuckic for dead with a smart turn to drive into the penalty box from the right but the Hibs midfielder's low delivery is deflected clear by a defender in blue.

  52. Post update

    Hibs are using the width of the park well, with Lewis Stevenson and David Gray hugging the touchline. A slick move from the visitors sees the ball hacked away by defender Darren McGregor after it got stuck under the feet of Jason Cummings.

  53. Post update

    Hibs striker Dominique Malonga has been clattered by a couple of hefty challenges but referee Steven McLean has not reached for his cards yet.

  54. Post update

    Well, that was rather against the run of play. Will it take the wind out of the home side's sails after a promising start or can they rally?

  55. GOAL

    Rangers 0-1 Hibernian (Robertson)

    Scott Robertson celebrates

    Scott Allan pings a firm pass into the penalty area for Jason Cummings to run on to. Lee Robinson flies out to make a brave save at the striker's feet and the ball breaks to Scott Robertson who stabs it home from near the penalty spot.

  56. Post update

    From the set-piece, Kris Boyd gets his head to the ball and his glancing nod skims narrowly wide of the post.

  57. Post update

    Rangers continue to win most of the 50-50s and enjoy a good spell of possession which culminates in Kenny Miller thumping in a dipping effort from 25 yards. Mark Oxely tips it over for a corner.

  58. Join the debate at #bbcscotfootball

    Anthony Duncan: "Surprisingly Rangers have got off to a good start, Miller & Boyd seem to be in the right mood tonight #bbcscotfootball"

  59. Post update

    David Gray darts down the right to swing a cross into the Rangers penalty area and it's missed by the defender at the near post. Unfortunately for the visitors, only central defender Paul Hanlon is in the area and he can't quite reach it.

  60. Post update

    It's been an impressive start from Rangers. The hosts have been aggressive and look sharp in the final third, while Hibs have yet to find any kind of rhythm.

  61. CLOSE!

    Rangers' Haris Vuckic has a blast from 20 yards and Mark Oxley gets down to beat it away. The ball falls to Kenny Miller, who cuts inside a defender and hammers in a rising shot that is headed clear by Liam Fontaine guarding the goal-line.

  62. Post update

    Under no pressure at all, Lee Robinson takes a confident catch from Scott Allan's corner. A nice boost for the Rangers stand-in keeper.

  63. Post update

    Hibs make their first foray into the opposition penalty box but Jason Cummings comes to a dramatic halt after a promising burst and he is blocked by Andy Murdoch.

  64. Post update

    A crowd of less than 11,500 witnessed Raith Rovers' Scottish Cup victory at Ibrox on Sunday. There are more in the stadium tonight but still a lot of empty seats, which makes the decision to refuse the visitors any more than 900 tickets an odd one.

  65. KICK-OFF

    We're off... and Rangers have already had a shot on target as Kris Boyd spins in the box but can only make a weak connection and Mark Oxley saves comfortably.

  66. Post update

    For all of those doing a sweep on how long it would take BBC Radio Scotland commentator Rob Maclean to make a Friday the 13th reference, he's gone and done it before kick-off...

  67. Post update

    The teams are in the tunnel. Lee Wallace leads Rangers in the absence of suspended skipper Lee McCulloch. David Gray wears the armband for the visitors since club captain Liam Craig is among the substitutes.

  68. Post update

    Remember all that fuss about the five Newcastle players coming to Rangers on loan and Kenny MacDowall saying he had been instructed to play them all? Well, it's not really been an issue since four of them are injured. Haris Vuckic is the only Magpie on show tonight and the Slovenian midfielder looked quite tidy on his debut, scoring in that loss to Rovers.

  69. Post update

    BBC Sportsound pundit Willie Miller

    "I make Hibs the favourites - what a night it could be for them. Rangers need strikers Kenny Miller and Kris Boyd to rediscover their form. They are experienced players and have to lead by example."

  70. Post update

    After a sticky start for manager Alan Stubbs, Hibs have lost just one of their last 17 league games, although there have been a few draws too many for the former Everton and Celtic defender to be wholly satisfied.

  71. Post update

    Hibs turned in their best performance of the season in that 4-0 win over Rangers on 27 December. Scott Allan and Scott Robertson bossed the midfield, while full-backs David Gray and Lewis Stevenson were a blur of perpetual motion as they bombed forward at every opportunity. The Edinburgh side dominated from start to finish and could maybe have had a few more goals.

    Their previous victory at Ibrox owed more to ruthless counter-attacking, with teenage striker Jason Cummings scoring twice as they raced into a 3-0 lead after 39 minutes.

  72. Post update

    Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs on BBC Radio Scotland

    "It was difficult for me to pick a team tonight. I believe I'm assembling a really strong group and they can come to places like this and be confident of getting a result."

  73. Post update

    That was a third loss in five games for Rangers caretaker boss Kenny McDowall, with his debut as the main man in the dugout a 4-0 hammering at Easter Road. Hibs are seeking a league hat-trick tonight, having won 3-1 in Govan back in September.

    Rangers did manage a win over Hibs in August, with an extra-time goal settling a Petrofac Training Cup match 2-1 in their favour.

  74. Post update

    Hibs blew a great chance to leapfrog Rangers on their last league outing, conceding a stoppage-time equaliser at home to Raith Rovers after dominating much of the game and squandering several good chances.

    Christian Nade was the man to dent Hibs that day and the big man was on target again last weekend, scoring the Scottish Cup winner for the Kirkcaldy side at Ibrox.

  76. Post update

    A quick word on the Hibs line-up, since manager Alan Stubbs has ditched his usual 4-4-2 diamond formation to go with three at the back. It worked a treat the last time he came to Ibrox as the visitors raced into a 3-0 half-time lead.

    Captain Liam Craig is the midfielder to miss out as Keith Watson steps into central defence.

  77. Post update

    There is a protest against the board at almost every Rangers home game these days. Former players John Brown and Nacho Novo are taking part tonight, with organisers saying they expect around 2,000 fans to join in outside the main stand. Feelings are running high ahead of next month's extraordinary general meeting of shareholders.

    All four of the under-fire board members stayed away on Sunday but they will be in the director's box for this one.

  78. Post update

    Lee Robinson takes over in goals for the hosts, while there is a first start for midfielder Andy Murdoch as Kenny McDowall makes six changes. Sebastien Faure gets a first start this season at right-back and Marius Zaliukas is back having been missing since early October.

    Striker Dominique Malonga returns for Hibs after representing Congo at the African Cup of Nations.

  79. LINE-UPS FROM IBROX

    Rangers: Robinson, Faure, Zaliukas, McGregor, Wallace; Hutton, Murdoch, Vuckic, Law, Miller, Boyd. Subs: Kelly, Aird, Black, Daly, Clark, Shiels, Halkett.

    Hibernian: Oxley, Watson, Hanlon, Fontaine, Gray, McGeouch, Robertson, Allan, Stevenson, Cummings, Malonga. Subs: Cerny, Forster, Craig, Stanton, Boyle, Fyvie, Djedje.

  80. Post update

    Rangers goalkeeper Steve Simonsen

    With Rangers struggling for form, it's probably not a good night to be without their captain and regular goalkeeper but that's what happened. Lee McCulloch has been suspended for stamping on an opponent, with Steve Simonsen banned after violating gambling rules.

    That's why Simonsen has got a shirt and tie on at Ibrox tonight.

  81. Post update

    A quick glance at the Championship table tells us that Rangers are one point ahead of Hibs and have played three games fewer. However, the home side are in something of a tailspin at the moment as they seek to avoid a third consecutive defeat.

  82. Post update

    Good evening and welcome to our coverage of Rangers v Hibernian in the Scottish Championship.

    With Hearts running away with the title, it looks like the play-offs for this pair but finishing as runners-up means some extra rest while third v fourth go at it over two legs.
