Match in Focus

12:15 Sa 27Dec

Hibernian v Rangers

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Hibs have lost just one of their last ten home matches
Expert verdict
It seems as if there is fresh turmoil at Rangers every week and it will be interesting to see how the Gers settle after Ally McCoist's departure. They have lost their last three away games and conceded eight goals, so Hibs should be hopeful. However, four of their last five league matches at Easter Road have been draws and this could be another one.
