Easter Road should see another Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership thriller as Hibernian welcome Rangers three days after going agonisingly close to ending Celtic's long unbeaten run.

Only a desperate injury-time goalline clearance from Mikael Lustig prevented Hibs from sealing an incredible recovery after coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2.

Rangers, under Graeme Murty, finally recorded three league wins in a row at the weekend for the first time in a year.

There's absolutely no love lost between these teams after the messy events of the 2016 Scottish Cup Final, but goals look likely in a difficult-to-call encounter, which is sure to be a feisty affair.
