Rangers faced off against Hibernian at Easter Road earlier today as they looked to secure a victory on their travels. The Gers made a quick start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 32nd minute when James Tavernier found the back of the net. Rangers went into the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.
Ianis Hagi doubled his team’s advantage in the 55th minute before Todd Cantwell killed the game off in the 86th minute. Hibernian got a late consolation thanks to Paul Hanlon’s injury-time effort but the contest ended with Michael Beale’s men earning an impressive 3-1 win away from home.
