Hibs good form against Rangers comtinued from last season when they beat Rangers three times. Today it was only 2-1 but the game was so one sided in the first half that Rangers never had an attempt on goal. How Hibs only had a one goal advantage at halftime was the main talking point and concern around me as we have all seen Rangers come out of the sewer smelling of roses time and time again. When Rangers equalised on 65 minutes I thought we were going to get punished for all the missed chances but Chris Killen popped up on 80 minutes to score his second header and secure the three points. Killen was booked for his celebration and then picked up a second card five minutes later for leading with an elbow. Bardsley for Rangers received his second booking in injury time for shouting at the referee and made it 10 men apiece.
In all the years I have watched Hibs I don't think I have ever seen them dominate Rangers so much, although Rangers came back into the game in the second half it was still Hibs that looked the more likely to score. In the first half Rangers picked up four bookings as they started kicking out in frustration, Paul Le Guen must be wondering what he has let himself in for coming to the SPL.
Now that this current group of Rangers players has been humbled by the mighty Hiberninan I dare say the Glasgow press will be full of which Hibs players will be bought by the old firm in January. English Premiership targets Scott Brown and Kevin Thomsom were outstanding and whichever club finally signs them is going to be very lucky, I hope that is not for a while.
C'Mon the Hibs.
