History of the Hibernian v Rangers fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Rangers at Easter Road Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 67 of the 141 previous games, with the The Hibees winning just 34.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in April 2007, when they fought out a thrilling high-scoring 3-3 draw in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Hibernian have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. A generous 10 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The The Gers's have scored 9 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Hibernian's 28 points from 19 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position. Rangers sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 38 points from their 17 games.
