    Ian Smith in Carlisle - a happy Jambo: When it really matters, Hibs always blow it. They just haven't got the big match temperament. Well done Hearts; looking forward to next season.

    Steve: Having endured the pain of Kilmarnock in 1965 and Dens Park in 1986, can someone reassure me that there is no possible gut-wrenching way for Hearts to lose this championship? Only asking...

  5. 'Pleased with all-round effort'

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall

    "It was a good performance; there were lots of good individual performances but in a team unit.

    "As I said to the lads, the seasons still got a long way to go. Today was good, but just because of what's happened in the past, we've still got a long way to go - there's still a lot to play for. A result, a performance like that can only help the confidence which has been low.

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall

    "I'm just pleased with all-round effort and desire of the players. A lot of ability and quality in there as well, I thought at times we played good stuff.

    "It was fantastic to see supporters who have been through a lot celebrating like that. That's the standard we've set now, we can't fall below that. People will talk about wanting to keep the jersey, but they've got to do it week in, week out. It's a starting block."

  6. 'A foul 100% of the time'

    Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

    "In terms of possession, I thought Rangers were better than us in the first half. In terms of chances created I didn't think there was a lot in it.

    "Second half I thought our tempo was better; we were starting to come into the game and, unfortunately, a very, very poor decision has altered the course of the game.

    Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

    "I don't want to stand here and try to explain it because I don't think there's any to give.

    "I've been in football a long time and I'll guarantee that's [Lee Wallace's challenge on Paul Hanlon] a foul 100% of the time".

  15. Hibernian 0-2 Rangers (Miller)

    Rangers double their lead as Kenny Miller threads the ball beyond the onrushing Mark Oxley but Hibs are in uproar for what they believe should've been a foul on Paul Hanlon by Lee Wallace.

    Hanlon is booked for his protests; Miller for his goal celebration. You had the feeling there'd be another goal in this one and Rangers double their lead.

    Kenny Miller celebrates his goal

    Are those of a Hearts persuasion looking out the party hats and streamers?

  16. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Sam Stanton is on for Scott Robertson as Alan Stubbs rolls the Hibs dice: his side need two goals in the 12 minutes remaining or Hearts will be league champions.

  17. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Scott Allan's 25-yard howitzer is deflected for a Hibs corner but the hosts fail to trouble Cammy Bell from the set piece.

  18. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Stuart McCall sends on Ian Black for Dean Shiels; not before giving the midfielder some tactical instruction with a series of elaborate hand movements; like offering top tips on how to reverse park on a busy street.

  19. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Lee Wallace appears Rangers' most creative outlet but he's still doing his defensive bit too; tracking back to mop up a Hibs counter attack by Fraser Fyvie.

  20. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    That missed chance if Franck Dja Djedje's final act as Alan Stubbs replaces him with Martin Boyle. Moments later, Lee Wallace feeds Nicky Clark but Hibs clear for a corner.

    Hibs keeper Mark Oxley then tries to grab at the ball from the set piece like a man on a storm-tossed ferry trying to prevent a pickle falling from his fish supper.

    There MUST be another goal in this one...

  21. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Now it's Hibs' turn to spurn a gilt-edged chance. Franck Dja Djedje angles into the box after a calamitous mistake by Bilel Mohsni but seems to crumble in the box and dab it inside when he should really be getting a shot away.

    How on earth have we only seen one goal today?

  22. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    What a chance! Rangers launch a counter attack, cutting through Hibs like a knife through butter. Kenny Miller feeds Nicky Clark but the back-tracking Paul Hanlon somehow gets back to block his shot.

    That could and should have been 2-0.

  23. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Good news from Easter Road if you're a Rangers or Hearts supporter. Lee Wallace's goal has put the former ahead, while the latter are a step closer to clinching the Championship title.

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall is urging his side to retain their focus.

  24. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    *Speed klaxon sounds*

    Suddenly the game is opening up as both sides attack each other with gusto and a bit of pace. Scott Allan is again at the centre of things for Hibs while Nicky Clark spurns a promising opening for Rangers.

    Much, much better!

  25. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Two chances within a minute. Kenny Miller scoops an effort over the Hibs bar before, up the other end, the unmarked Paul Henlon heads wide of the Rangers goal - much to the frustration of the Hibs fans and manager Alan Stubbs, who thunders back angrily into his chair in the dugout.

  26. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Encouragement for Hibs as Dylan McGeouch shows a bit of pace before clipping a ball into the box for Dominique Malonga, whose looping header fails to trouble Cammy Bell.

  27. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Dean Shiels hobbles to the touchline after going down with what seems to be cramp or hamstring trouble. Tempers beginning to fray at Easter Road.

  28. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers come roaring forward on the counter attack after Lee Wallace nabs possession and have Hibs outnumbered.

    However, he tries to outfox Scott Robertson who is equal to the task. Nicky Clark is roaring at his Rangers team-mate from inside the penalty area; the striker was completely unmarked.

  29. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    The flow of the second half is disrupted by a couple of niggly fouls. Scott Allan is trying to create something for the hosts.

  30. KICK-OFF

    We're back under way at a sun-kissed Easter Road...

  34. 'I've really enjoyed it'

    BBC Sportsound pundit Chick Young

    "There's only been one shot on target in the game so far: Lee Wallace's goal. But I've really enjoyed it. It's not Barcelona v Real Madrid but it's entertaining in its own way."

  35. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Our pundits on BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound have been eagle-eyed in spotting that Rangers' 3-5-2 formation has stifled Hibs in midfield.

    Lee Wallace, who impressed in the opening 45 minutes, scored the only goal of the half.

    How will Hibs respond? Will Rangers continue to keep it tight or will Stuart McCall chase a second goal?

    Statistics from Easter Road
  36. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Lee Wallace's goal separates the sides at the break. Are Hearts 45 minutes away from securing the Championship title and Rangers narrowing the gap on second-placed Hibs?

  37. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    Rangers fans are dancing inside Easter Road and you'd imagine Hearts supporters are doing a wee Gangnam Style dance of celebration too.

    Hibs needs to find two goals to prevent their Edinburgh rivals clinching the Championship title today.

  38. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers

    BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson

    "Lee Wallace getting just rewards for his efforts..."

  39. Hibernian 0-1 Rangers (Wallace)

    Rangers draw first blood at Easter Road as the impressive Lee Wallace displays Ninja-like reflexes to lash the ball home from close range amid a forest of players inside the box.

    Lee Wallace celebrates firing Rangers in front
  40. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Ouch! Rangers launch another aerial assault on the Hibs penalty area, with keeper Mark Oxley careering off his line and leaping like Superman. He gets nowhere near the ball and clatters team-mate Paul Hanlon. That could've knocked out his false teeth...

  41. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Give us a goal please! The first half at Easter Road, despite being played under bright sunshine, is failing to light up proceedings.

    The midfield is a war of attrition and chances for either side are at a premium.

    Celebrity Jambo Ronnie Corbett isn't missing anything by walking the dog...

  42. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Rangers defender Lee Wallace concedes what appears a needless free kick wide on the right for clattering into the back of David Gray. Scott Allan fluffs his lines with the set piece; triggering a rueful shake of the head from Hibs boss Alan Stubbs.

  43. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    BBC Sportsound pundit Craig Paterson

    "Hibs haven't been able to impose their passing game on Rangers..."

  44. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Lee Wallace is seeing a lot of the ball down the left and earns a free kick after seeing his initial cross fail to bear fruit.

    Can Rangers profit? The answer is no. Nicky Law's free kick sails over the heads of everyone inside the box and out for a goal kick.

  45. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Nicky Law spears into the Hibs penalty area but is drowned out by a sea of green jerseys as the visitors force a corner. Rangers launch a couple of aerial assaults into the box but Hibs are up to the task.

    The game is crying out for a wee bit of magic as we approach the half-hour mark.

  46. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson

    "Good movement from Nicky Clark and Kenny Miller but Rangers need to get someone inside the box."

  47. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Lee Wallace's run is ended abruptly by Hibs full-back David Gray - who earns a booking for his foul on the edge of the area - but Nicky Law, fresh from his pole-axing earlier, arrows a free-kick high over the bar.

    Rangers midfielder Nicky Law gets gingerly to his feet after a bone-crunching challenge from team-mate Darren McGregor.

    The smelling salts or magic sponge are applied after the WWE-style impact and we're back under way. Stuart McCall and Kenny Black indulge in a bit of tactical chat at the Rangers dugout.

  50. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Scott Allan has shown some silky touches for Hibs but the hosts, save for the Liam Fontaine header, have been unable to make inroads towards Cammy Bell's goal.

  51. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Pacing the technical area, with arms folded, Rangers boss Stuart McCall looks content with proceedings in the opening 20 minutes at Easter Road.

    It remains goalless but the visitors are going toe to toe with Hibs.

  53. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Rangers press forward again but a decent opening fizzles out as Dean Shiels' wild effort has more chance of taking out someone's pie and bovril in the stand behind Mark Oxley's goal than finding the target.

  54. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    BBC Sportsound pundit Craig Paterson

    "The least he's [Liam Fontaine] got to do is warm the hands of Cammy Bell..."

  55. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    The hosts are chapping at the door now and Dylan McGeouch's sumptuous centre is headed wide by Liam Fontaine. The Hibs fans roar their approval and the game is beginning to come to the boil nicely.

  56. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Hibs break upfield and Malonga is fouled about 25 yards from goal. However, Alan Stubbs' men fail to profit from a decent position as the set piece fails to trouble Rangers.

    "It's all a bit scrappy at the moment but Rangers look really up for it..."

  59. Hibernian 0-0 Rangers

    Neither side has settled in a ferocious opening spell with the ball spending a lot of time in the skies above Easter Road. Reminiscent of last week's solar eclipse...

  63. Sunshine on Leith?

    Easter Road is basked in early Spring sunshine ahead of this afternoon's cracker.

    Hibs have accounted for Rangers in each of their previous three league games this season: scoring nine goals and conceding one in the process.

  64. 'Win it in front of your home fans'

    As we previously mentioned, Hearts could secure the Championship title today without kicking a ball in anger.

    Robbie Neilson wants to win it at Tynecastle and Hibs boss Alan Stubbs insists he would feel the same.

    "You want to win it in front of your home fans," Stubbs tells BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound.

    "We obviously don't want to do Robbie any favours; we'll concern ourselves with what we do today.

    "We want to get three points: if we do, fantastic, if we don't, I'll be on the phone to Robbie to congratulate him."

  65. 'We know what Hibs are about'

    "You can call it what you want," Rangers boss Stuart McCall says of his likely 3-5-2 formation.

    "I'm sure after five minutes of the game you'll find out what it is. There are certain areas we need to impress ourselves on.

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall

    "We know what Hibs are about, they like to get a bit of midfield control and get the ball in wide areas, they've got two very good attacking full-backs, but as much as we're aware of what they're about, we've then got to come and start making impressions on games.

    "At this moment in time, there are no thoughts of defeat for us."

  66. 'We've got the tools'

    "We feel we've got the tools to get a result," Hibs boss Alan Stubbs tells our intrepid reporter Chick "Chico" Young.

    Hibs boss Alan Stubbs

    "We've gone into every game wanting to win and, luckily enough recently, we've had success doing that.

    "Today's no different and it's going to be a tough game. Stuart McCall has paid us a real compliment by playing three at the back and five across midfield to combat us.

    "But we're confident at this moment in time and we believe in what we're doing..."

  67. Three at the back...

    Rangers boss Stuart McCall opts to go with three at the back this afternoon in a 3-5-2 formation.

    Two changes for the visitors as replace Bilel Mohsni and Kenny Miller come in for the the injured Tom Walsh and Kris Boyd.

  68. Cummings blow

    Jason Cummings failed a late fitness test for Hibs and doesn't make the squad for today's game.

  69. Title race

    Second-placed Hibs, who have beaten Rangers three times in the division so far this term, trail the league leaders by 23 points. Stuart McCall's men have a game in hand over Hibs and are six points behind.

    Robbie Neilson is on record as saying he'd prefer to secure the title at Tynecastle, with the Edinburgh side's next home match is against Queen of the South on 28 March.

    Celebrity Jambo Ronnie Corbett

    We'll have to wait and see...

    We can picture celebrity Hearts fan Ronnie Corbett out walking the dog - arms and legs pumping like pistons - and throwing the stick high and far as he awaits to hear of events at Easter Road; wondering if he'll be heading home to tuck into some league title-winning steak pie.
