Rangers return to top with hard-fought Hibs victory

Rangers missed a penalty and had a goal disallowed as they returned to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a dramatic 3-1 win against Hibs at Ibrox.

With Celtic not in action until Sunday, the Ibrox side knew a victory would see them move two points clear of their Old Firm rivals but it was a challenge with the visitors unbeaten in their last six league games.

David Marshall saved his fourth penalty of the season to deny James Tavernier after Nectarios Triantis’ arm was adjudged to have caught John Souttar following a VAR check.

The Rangers captain did volley in for the opener, though, after Scott Wright’s rebound goal was disallowed for encroachment.

Myziane Maolida beat the Rangers defence to stab home the equaliser in first-half injury time before Cyriel Dessers reacted quickly to restore the Ibrox side’s lead before the break.

Rabbi Matondo came off the bench to add a third as Philippe Clement’s side returned to winning ways with the Old Firm clash a week away. Hibs remain sixth, one point ahead of Dundee.
