Well here it is, the last day of the season in the Scottish Premiership. I’m Mike Gibbons @mikewgibbons, I’m here to guide you through this fixture and ease you into your Sunday afternoon.

The race for the title might not have gone to the wire, but the race for second and third place has. For Hibernian, they need an unlikely six goal margin of victory to blag third place and bump Rangers into fourth, and outside of the guaranteed European qualifying places. With Neil Lennon’s criticism from midweek ringing in their ears, the Hibs players need to show up.

If Aberdeen don’t win at Celtic today, then Rangers can take second place from under their nose with a win at Easter Road (or a draw, if the Dons are beaten). The other thing going on for the Rangers players, of course, is this is the third round of ‘Keep Me, Stevie G’ auditions for 2018/19.

TEAM NEWS Your genial hosts, Hibernian: Marciano, Whittaker, Stevens, Slivka, Hanlon, McGinn, Ambrose, McGeouch, Kamberi, Maclaren, Scott Allan SUBS – Gray, Bartley, Swanson, Barker, McGregor, Dabrowski, Allan

Your dinner guests, Rangers: Alnwick, Tavernier, Bates, Martin, Halliday, Holt, Rossiter, Candeias, Goss, Murphy, Cummings SUBS – Windass, Herrera, Hodson, Bruno Alves, O’Halloran, Kelly, Docherty

And we're off!

Advert

'One Neil Lennon' is belting out around Easter Road. 0-0 (1)

Tavernier looks to be a little troubled by a long ball in behind, before turning out of trouble and sauntering back upfield to win a free-kick. Classy. 0-0 (3)

Cumming wins the first corner of the game for Rangers, which is headed decisively clear by Ambrose. 0-0 (5)

Hibs are playing with three up here, trying to force the issue. Kamberi cuts in nicely from the left into the area and lets a shot go. It deflects just wide, which the referee doesn't see and Rangers get a goal kick. 0-0 (8)
