History of the Rangers v Hibernian fixture

Hibernian face a trip to Rangers at Ibrox Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 94 out of 140 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2006, with Rangers running out comfortable 3 - 0 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
