    Former Rangers striker Jon Daly

    "Hibs were solid throughout. They defended deeper than they would have liked to but ultimately they had the better chances."

  5. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Craig Paterson on Hibs goalie Mark Oxley

    "You could see the back four looking the same way, as if 'the keeper has got to save that'. Take nothing away from the strike by Tavernier. He got it up, he got it down and it clipped the underside of the bar."

  6. FULL-TIME

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    James Tavernier's fourth goal of the season gives Rangers an important win over their prospective rivals for the automatic promotion place to the Premiership. Mark Warburton's side go top, while Hibs are left to ponder some missed chances.

  7. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    James Tavernier balloons a free-kick high over the bar. That could be the last chance of the game.

  8. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Sub Dean Shiels finds space down the right for Rangers but the ball into the box is not precise enough to set up a team-mate. Hibs need to get hold of the ball pronto!

    Hibs go close as sub Sam Stanton clips a pass in for the ambitious Lewis Stevenson who reaches the six-yard box before Rangers clear.

  12. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Nathan Oduwa's foul gives Hibs a chance 35 yards from goal, but John McGinn's free-kick is over-hit and home keeper Wes Foderingham can collect for a goal-kick.

  13. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Hibs are running out of time to create a chance. Rangers are spending most of their time in the visitors' half.

    Nathan Oduwa shows some nice footwork down the left, cuts inside but his shot drifts harmlessly wide of the Hibs goal.

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Frustration for Hibs boss Alan Stubbs as Martin Boyle crosses the ball into the box when there was no-one up to support him.

  21. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Eight yards from goal, Kenny Miller tries a toe poke rather than putting his boot through the ball and Rangers may not get a better chance than that to score a second.

  23. Post update

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian

    Danny Carmichael makes a terrific run down the left, enters the Rangers penalty box and cuts the ball back for Liam Henderson who, under pressure from his marker, knocks it wide. It's agony for the band of Hibs fans close by.

  24. GOAL

    Rangers 1-0 Hibernian (Tavernier)

    From out on the left, James Tavernier smacks a free-kick high over the defensive wall and in under the crossbar. Mark Oxley was rooted to the spot...until it was too late.

  25. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibs have a glorious chance to score the opener as Jason Cummings gets clear of Danny Wilson and rolls the ball along to Liam Henderson who had an age to take a touch and lash a shot at goal; instead, he hits a right-footed shot first time and the ball sails into the Broomloan Road stand.

  26. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Rangers centre-back Danny Wilson is next to be cautioned, for a foul on John McGinn.

  27. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibs defend manfully to deny Rangers but the goal threat from the visitors has lessened.

  28. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Nathan Oduwa, on loan from Spurs, comes on for Barrie McKay. The Rangers fans give the 19-year-old a huge ovation.

  29. YELLOW CARD

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Fraser Fyvie is booked for an industrial challenge on Rangers midfielder Nicky Law.

  30. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Rangers captain Lee Wallace gets back to his feet and looks OK to continue.

  31. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Lee Wallace is writhing in pain on the turf after Martin Boyle's sliding challenge. The Hibs man got the ball but only after sending Wallace down.

  32. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    James Tavernier's cross falls between strikers and Hibs defenders and pings off Fraser Fyvie for a corner as the home side turn the screw.

  33. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Dylan McGeouch is coming on for Hibs after making a permanent switch from Celtic - David Gray limps off, head down.

  34. GREAT SAVE!

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Hibs goalie Mark Oxley paws a left-footed effort by Jason Holt round the post. There wasn't a great deal of pace on the ball but it was aimed just inside the post - very good save.

    Hibs get us under way again.

  37. Post update

    Former Rangers striker Jon Daly

    "Hibs have Dominic Malonga, Dylan McGeouch and Sam Stanton as subs. I have been impressed with Liam Henderson, he has that ability to play the killer pass. On the bench Rangers have Nicky Clark, who is a goal threat."

  40. HALF-TIME

    Rangers 0-0 Hibernian

    Well, that was lively. At one point, what with the glorious sunshine and the break-neck pace of the game, I wondered if we might see a water break - would that be a first in Scottish football? A couple of chances fell to each team, with Martyn Waghorn's header over the bar perhaps the best for the home side and Jason Cummings' shot just before the interval probably the best. A draw is fair, I'd say, so far.

  41. YELLOW CARD

    Hibs midfielder John McGinn is booked for a rather cynical foul on Nicky Law in the middle of the park.

  42. CLOSE!

    At the other end Wes Foderingham saves a less-than-electric shot from 10 yards by Jason Cummings after he had been played in by Hibs team-mate Martin Boyle.

  43. CLOSE!

    Paul Hanlon throws out a hefty leg to divert Lee Wallace's cutback out for a corner. From the set piece Martyn Waghorn finds space to send a "trundler" towards the Hibs goal where David Gray boots it off the goal-line.

  45. Post update

    Liam Henderson takes a sore one to the top of his foot as Rangers centre-half Rob Kiernan, a long way from the defensive area he normally patrols, challenges him with his studs up. Kiernan escapes having his name taken by referee Steven McLean.

  46. Post update

    Hibs' right-midfielder Martin Boyle shoots at goal but the curl on it takes it away from the target.

  47. Post update

    Lee Wallace does just enough to prevent Hibs striker Jason Cummings score

  48. Post update

    Martyn Waghorn nutmegs Hibs defender Paul Hanlon 20 yards out and is sent to to the turf by a nudge from Hanlon's backside. The home fans roar for a foul but the referee waves for play on.

  49. Post update

    Nicky Law bustles through the centre circle and is wayward with his pass out to the right. Nevertheless, he manages to pick it up again 30 yards from goal before Hibs' Lewis Stevenson takes the ball off his toe and, with a lovely shimmy which he made look all the better by his left-footedness, brings it out of defence.

  50. Post update

    Rangers midfielder Barry McKay plays a short corner to Nicky Law, who rolls the ball out to Jason Holt - his bizarre shot moves through the air like a welly boot being tossed at a country fair competition. Mark Oxley gathers with ease.

  51. Post update

    Hibs seem to be growing in confidence as the pace refuses to relent. It's a good, open game.

  52. Post update

    Hibs midfielder Liam Henderson and Lee Wallace vie for possession

  53. Post update

    Jason Cummings, Hibs' 20-year-old forward, tries to volley home from the edge of the six-yard box but sclaffs at it and a trio of blue-shirted manage to snuff out the danger. The visitors look very capable of scoring today.

  54. Post update

    Former Hearts man Jason Holt is next to pester the men in green and white with a run down the right - again Hibs get it clear.

  55. Post update

    At the other end Lee Wallace tries his luck from 18 yards with his weaker right foot but Hibs deflect it out for a corner.

  56. Post update

    Wes Foderingham seems to lose his marbles for a moment and fluffs a kick-out straight to Martin Boyle but Rangers defender Danny Wilson is back to mop things up like a conscientious school janitor.

  57. Get Involved

    Robin Tremmel on Facebook: "Come on Hibs! We really cannot afford to lose this one. 2-2 I think."

  58. Post update

    Kenny Miller wins Rangers a corner on the right with a direct run at goal from a throw-in, and from Barrie McKay's resultant delivery Martyn Waghorn out-muscles Lewis Stevenson but heads powerfully over the bar from eight yards.

  59. Post update

    Fraser Fyvie sends a rather beefy pass-back to Hibs goalkeeper Mark Oxley from 25 yards and his touch encourages Martyn Waghorn to race in on goal. The ball deflects to Barrie McKay but Hibs regroup and clear the danger.

    "Hibs look like they have flooded that midfield area to force Rangers down the sides."

  62. Post update

    Hibs' Liam Henderson makes a lung-bursting 40 yard surge over the halfway line before he loses control and fouls an opponent.

  63. Post update

    Rangers centre-half Rob Kiernan barges in to the back of Jason Cummings and Hibs have a free-kick 30- yards from goal. ..Ah, but his left-footed effort flies high over the bar into the Copland Road stand.

  64. Post update

    It's predictably frantic stuff, with players keen to get a few touches to settle their nerves.

  65. KICK-OFF

    Rangers kick off the match.

  66. Post update

    Hibs' new signing Dylan McGeouch is on the subs' bench, while his former Celtic team-mate Liam Henderson starts.

    Former Rangers striker Jon Daly

    "It's going to be a great game of football. Both teams are going to go out and play a great game and it will be a good advert for the Championship. Hibs will come in to this game quietly confident. I think they have two of the last three at Ibrox."

  72. Post update

    Hibs manager Alan Stubbs on "spat" with Mark Warburton

    "One minute you get called boring, next you're conniving, so what side of the fence do you want to sit on? The most important people on Sunday are not me and Mark, it's the players out on the pitch. These are always strong games. In the head-to-heads last season, they were pretty close affairs. I anticipate and hope it's going to be the same this season."

  73. Post update

    Points to prove

    Rangers are third in the Championship table but can leapfrog Queen of the South on goal difference with a win, while Hibernian can pull themselves level with Rangers, Raith Rovers and Dumbarton if they can plunder maximum points this afternoon.

  74. Post update

    BBC Scotland football pundit Craig Paterson

    "Hibs, if they are going to win, need to score goals and Jason Cummings is by far their best goalscorer."
