FAMILIARITY may breed contempt. But fortunately, in the case of Hibernian and Rangers, it does not also breed boredom. A minor classic was served up in this tenth meeting between the teams in 14 months.
Hibs didn’t want to contemplate the consequences of defeat. Nor do they have to. Instead, they can savour taking another bite out of Rangers’ Championship lead, which now stands at just five points.
