Scottish Football Odds: Glasgow Rangers Clash with HibernianPublished February 13, 2015 by Amir G
Glasgow Rangers and Hibernian meet for a fight to secure the Scottish Championship's second spot (19:45 UK time).
This Friday evening sees serious action at the top of the Scottish Championship league as Glasgow Rangers host Hibernian at Ibrox Stadium (19:45 UK time). The last meeting between the two sides took place last December, with Hibernian thoroughly thrashing Rangers 4-0.
Rangers Seek Revenge
Taking in mind the fresh thrashing, Rangers will seek to turn the wheel and wage revenge today at home against their thrashers. While both teams are far away from undisputed table leader Heart of Midlothian, Rangers have the edge on Hibernian as they're located second in the Championship table with 41 points – Hibenrian are down just one point at the third spot.
While Rangers beat Alloa 1-0 in their last league game, the team suffered a defeat by the legs of Raith Rovers with a 1-2 loss at home. Rangers' performance has led some to claim it is the worst team in the club's history. Rangers will be keen not to let their thrashers from two months ago to emerge victorious again.
While Hibernian finished with a 1-1 draw against Raith Rovers a fortnight ago, their two prior games were quite successful: 0-2 against Queens of the South and 5-0 against Cowdenbeath. Despite the difficult situation their rival team is having, Hibernian boss Alan Stubbs asked his players not to think about that but to just focus on taking 3 points home.
A win today would take the Hibs up to the second spot where they could start a run to get away from the struggling Rangers. Stubbs said that he expects a response from Rangers after the bad week they have had, downsizing his side so to speak in order not to build any expectations.
The game will be live at Winner Sports with a host of in-play betting markets as well as pre-match markets. Full time result odds gave Rangers 11/10, Hibernian 21/10 and 5/2 for a draw. Tune-in Winner Sports this evening for quality Scottish football action.
