Hibernian came from behind to beat 10-man Rangers 3-2 in a pulsating but at times ill-tempered Scottish Premiership clash at Ibrox. It was first meeting between the two clubs since the 2016 Scottish Cup final where David Gray scored a stoppage-time victor to give Hibs victory by the same scoreline, before a pitch invasion led to clashes and several arrests, and there was no little drama in this encounter.

Neil Lennon made three changes to the starting XI that comfortably disposed of Ayr United in midweek with David Gray, Ryan Porteous and Danny Swanson making way for Paul Hanlon, Steven Whittaker and Vykintas Slivka. Josh Windass is handed a start, while Alfredo Morelos and Kenny Miller carry the attacking threat.

Craig Curran opened the scoring with a second-minute header to hand the home side an early lead at Victoria Park before Mark Reynolds equalised midway through the first half with a well-timed volley into the roof of the net.

Efe Ambrose is relishing the prospect of running out at Ibrox tomorrow and has warned Rangers that Hibs will be up for the fight.

Hibs continued to dominate possession and looked to be cruising to victory but with nine minutes remaining Rangers pulled one back after Tavernier headed in a Danny Wilson cross.

Rangers: Foderingham, Tavernier, Alves, Cardoso, Hodson, Jack, Dorrans, Windass, Candeias, Miller, Morelos.
