Hibs’ battle to finish second in the Championship took a blow on Sunday when Rangers beat us, not only to close the gap on us but this win also handed our Edinburgh rivals Hearts the title!

A first defeat since December means that Rangers, in spite of their poor form, are now just three-points adrift of us and have a game in hand after this two-nil win at Easter Road. This game wasn’t without controversy though….

In a relatively poor first half our best chance saw Fontaine fail from six-yards when McGeouch’s cross found him unmarked in the box but he couldn’t take this, and we were made to pay.

A quickly taken Rangers freekick freed Clark, his cross was blocked by Stevenson but loanee ‘keeper Oxley was beaten by our former player Wallace (44) with him the first to react to put Rangers ahead on half time.

Rangers could have made it two in the second half and Fontaine appeared to push Clark in the penalty area as Rangers were denied a penalty.

Hanlon headed over Allan’s corner with a Mohsni slip allowing Djedje to get away but his pass to Malonga was cut out by Zaliukas as our chance to get back into the game past with the defeat confirmed when Wallace seemed to takeout Hanlon but a foul wasn’t given and Miller (80), controversially, scored to wrap up the points.
