Rangers vs Hibernian Match Preview
Celtic are likely to have wrapped up the title by the time this game gets underway as they head to Pittodrie to take on Aberdeen on Saturday lunchtime knowing a point will be enough to secure the trophy, but Rangers can be happy with the progress they’ve made this season. The gap between the Bhoys and the rest of the league no longer looks insurmountable and the Teddy Bears even enjoyed relative success in Europe, having been knocked out of the Europa League on the final day of the group stages.
Under Steven Gerrard in his first full season as a manager, the Glaswegians have made strides forward and now they’re looking to finish the season on a high, coming into this game on the back of four consecutive Scottish Premiership victories. After earning revenge on the Dons, who had knocked them out of the FA Cup in the Quarter Finals last month, with a 2-0 win last weekend, you can back the hosts for another three points here at 42/100 with William Hill
Hibernian can still qualify for European football this season. Presuming that Celtic beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final next month, the fourth-placed team in the Scottish Premiership table will enter the Europa League at the earliest qualifying stage and as things stand, the Hibbees sit in fifth place in the division, four points behind Kilmarnock who they will take on at Rugby Park next weekend.
After the decision to remove Neil Lennon as manager of the club earlier in the season, former Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom has arrived at Easter Road and enjoyed a fine spell so far, having not yet lost in the Scottish Premiership and having taken draws from fixtures versus both Old Firm sides, the Edinburgh outfit will feel they can upset the odds and pick up three points here at odds of 13/2 with Bet365.
We think the Gers will be too strong here though and although Hibernian are in fine form at the minute we do expect them to suffer a first Scottish Premiership defeat under Paul Heckingbottom at Ibrox. The Hibbees have failed to score in two of their last four games and Rangers have looked strong at the back of late, conceding just once in their last four games and winning all four. We’re backing another home win to nil at odds of William Hill.
Jermain Defoe has been leading the line for Rangers following the suspension of Alfredo Morales for his red card in the defeat to arch-rivals Celtic last month. The former Tottenham Hotspur man may be 36 years of age now but he still has the goalscoring touch, racking up seven in his first 14 league appearances for the Teddy Bears. We’re backing him to score another in this game.
