  1. Post update

    Thanks for your company tonight. Neither game was particularly exciting but all that matters for Hibs and Rangers fans is that their teams won. However, it's a sore one for Falkirk who lost ground in the Championship after that debatable penalty award for Hibs. Enjoy the rest of your evening.

  2. Post update

    Rangers manager Mark Warburton

    "I thought we dominated possession. Things went on out there that we have to learn from. It was frustrating tonight, I have to say. All credit to the players, they got their reward in the end."

  3. Post update

    So after 10 games Hibs have leapfrogged Raith Rovers and now sit second in the Championship on 22 points. Rangers are eight points ahead on a maximum of 30 points.

    Hibs manager Alan Stubbs

    "We are always looking for referees to be consistent. It's not an easy job, I understand that. I am surprised there was no fourth official here tonight when there are only two games on."

  7. Post update

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibs manager Alan Stubbs

    "I was surprised (at the penalty) but if you look at the incident before it maybe that has had a bearing on why he has given it. We dealt with everything that Falkirk threw at us - long balls and crosses. Last season we were labelled with not being able to deal with that, I think we have answered that. This is a really good three points for us tonight. We showed another side to us, where we had to show a bit of mettle."

  8. Post update

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

    Falkirk manager Peter Houston

    "I've got to watch what I say. I thought we deserved something from the match. I think errors have been made by Alan (Muir) over the last couple of games"

  9. Post update

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

    Falkirk manager Peter Houston

    "I feel a little hard done by. I certainly don't think it was a penalty kick. We put a lot into the match and we ended up with nothing. I mentioned to the referee in a polite manner, no swear words, 'why did you give the penalty kick?' I have only seen it live. I think he has tried to knock it round him. Where is our guy meant to go?"

    Andy Moles, East Kilbride: "I must check the rule book I was sure I was watching football. Disgraceful challenges by Livi and let's check the ref's undershirt. Ref/Livi lion."

    Rangers 1-0 Livingston (Clark)

    Nicky Clark scores for Rangers

    Substitute Nicky Clark collects a Lee Wallace cross from the left and pings a low shot past Marc McCallum from the edge of the box. The keeper seemed to be unsighted.

  19. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Nicky Law looks in the mood to find a winner at Ibrox. The Gers midfielder is constantly looking for the ball and just there curled a shot past the Livi left-hand post.

  20. Post update

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

    BBC Scotland reporter Brian McLauchlin

    Former Hibs captain Craig Paterson

    "Falkirk are winning every 50-50 battle out there. If you can't get your passing game going you've got to roll your sleeves up and fight."

  23. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Rangers are trying to stretch Livingston as they seek the breakthrough in the Petrofac Training Cup quarter-final. Having tried both wings, they go down the middle and some one-touch football releases Nicky Law in space in the box. His shot from 10 yards is parried by Marc McCallum towards Nicky Clark who can only scoop the ball over the bar.

    Anonymous: "Rangers have had 13 penalties in 10 games most very soft no uproar from press Hibs get 1 soft and it's end of the world."

    Ronnie in Kirkcadly: "It was an absolutely clear and definite penalty. No question about it. Actually I've no idea if it was or not but as Hibs never get lucky penalties we'll take it!"

  30. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Rangers start brightly, with James Tavernier, Barrie McKay and Andy Halliday troubling the visitors. The latter has a shot deflected over the bar for a corner kick which comes to nothing. Livi have a chance to regroup.

  31. KICK-OFF

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Livingston get the second period going at Ibrox. Come on, guys, we need some goalmouth action!

  36. Post update

    Falkirk fans speak to BBC Scotland's Brian McLauchlin

    "It looked like a slip [by John McGinn]. It didn't look like a penalty to me."

    "I think the standard of refereeing is abominable. He is giving Hibs everything.

    "It was a foul on the Falkirk player before the penalty happened."

    "I don't know what the referee is looking at it. The guy just jumped into it. It was never a penalty at all. It's disappointing because it is an even game. It is annoying when you get penalties like that against you."

  37. Text us on 80295

    Lennie: "Will you biased BBC commentators stop greeting your eyes out about the Hibs penalty. McGinn was pushed on the box. Penalty! Is that too hard for you to understand or is it because it is Hibs getting it?"

    JFK, Inverclyde Hospital: "I have never seen anything as inept as Rangers were in the 1st half of this cup match. Let's hope that things improve in the 2nd half."

  39. HALF-TIME

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    On the stroke of half-time, Liam Buchanan pokes a speculative shot over the Rangers bar. It has been a poor first half.

  40. HALF-TIME

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

  41. Post update

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian

    BBC Scotland commentator Rob Maclean

    "Falkirk manager Peter Houston will be at least looking for an explanation for that bizarre decision, that controversial penalty award."

  42. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Liam Buchanan tries his luck from distance with a low drive which Wes Foderingham gathers and the Livi striker is a fraction away a minute later from meeting Gary Glen's cross.

    "I was as amazed as anybody when the referee pointed to the penalty spot."

  45. GOAL

    Falkirk 0-1 Hibernian (Cummings pen)

    With five minutes until half-time. Hibs are a goal up thanks to Jason Cummings' cool penalty kick.

  46. PENALTY

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    Alan Muir awards Hibs a soft penalty as midfielder John McGinn goes down in the box after colliding with Blair Alston. The BBC commentary team are astonished at that decision.

  47. Post update

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    Falkirk goalie Danny Rogers is at full stretch to parry for a corner Dominique Malonga's powerful shot.

  48. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Rangers attacker Nathan Oduwa is sent to the turf for a third time as Livi midfielder Hugo Miguel da Encarnacao Pires Faria (or "Big Shuggie" from now on) barges him over with a robust body check. Soon after, Barrie McKay's inviting cross is met by Andy Halliday at the edge of the box but he doesn't quite get the connection he was hoping for with his volley and it doesn't trouble the Livi goal.

  49. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

  50. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    At Ibrox, Declan Gallagher is booked for tripping Nathan Oduwa on the edge of the box out on the right. Andy Halliday takes the free-kick which is easily sent towards the halfway line by the visitors. Half an hour played.

  51. Post update

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    Blair Alston smacks a low shot through a ruck of Hibs players but Mark Oxley is quick to react and makes a solid save to keep the match goalless as the half-hour mark approaches.

  52. Post update

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    James Keatings balloons a free-kick over the Falkirk crossbar when there was the chance to at least test goalkeeper Danny Rogers, who is on loan from Aberdeen for the season.

  54. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Rangers are too ponderous as they look for a chink in the Livi defence and the yellow-shirted visitors manage to clear.

  55. CLOSE!

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Nathan Oduwa crosses for James Tavernier and Rangers' ever-eager full-back heads the ball at goal where Livingston's Ben Gordon is well placed to hoof it clear.

  56. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    BBC Scotland's Brian McLauchlin at the Falkirk Stadium

    "Great header by Falkirk's journeyman striker Lee Miller that comes crashing off the cross bar. Good opening 15 minutes by both sides. Goals are surely not too far away!"

  57. Post update

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    It's goalless at the Falkirk Stadium after 12 minutes. A win for either team would lift them above Raith Rovers into second place in the Championship.

  58. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Livingston reached the last eight with a 1-0 win over Queen of the South at Palmerston, while Rangers also won on the road, 2-0 against Ayr United.

  59. Post update

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    BBC Scotland commentator Rob Maclean

    "Hibs are looking threatening every time they go forward. They re enjoying the bulk of the possession and most of the positive moments so far."

  60. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Martyn Waghorn lays the ball off for Lee Wallace but the Rangers full-back's left-foot shot is cushioned by a block and trickles towards the Livi goalkeeper Marc McCallum.

  61. Post update

    Rangers 0-0 Livingston

    Rangers forward Nathan Oduwa gets back to his feet very gingerly after a horrible challenge by Kieran Gibbons. The Livi player lunged in and caught Oduwa on the ankle with his outstretched boot. That looked very painful.

  62. KICK-OFF

    Falkirk 0-0 Hibernian

    And play has begun in Falkirk too.

I don't know how it would work out financially but I don't care about that, I'm a football man. Falkirk want to get out of this division, that is our main aim. We are well run, we have money in the bank, we sell players."

    "Nathan (Oduwa) has been away with England. We have rested him, looked after him. He comes in tonight. Nicky Law came on on Saturday and made a really good impression. He comes in.

    "The main priority has to be the league but you can't talk about establishing a winning mentality and then say we don't really care about a certain game. We have prepared well and we want to win the game."
