Hibernian 0-2 Rangers - McCall claims first victory with superb performance

Rangers FC

Rangers produced a superb display to beat Hibernian 2-0 at Easter Road this afternoon.

Stuart McCall tasted victory for the first time as Rangers boss after his side defied the odds to beat Hibernian 2-0 at Easter Road this afternoon.

Rangers went into the game having drawn each of their last five games, whilst Hibs - who sit one place above Rangers in the Scottish Championship table - had won their last five, conceding just one goal in the process.

The odds were stacked in Hibs' favour at kick-off, but McCall managed to grab his first win as Rangers manager after changing his system to play a 5-3-2 formation.

It paid dividends for Rangers, who took the lead on the stroke of half time, with left wing back Lee Wallace smashing rangers in front.

Kenny Miller then made it two late on to seal a vital three points for Rangers, who now sit just three points behind Hibs, with the teams remaining in second and third respectively.

It was vital for McCall to grab that first win as Rangers manager - and to win such a big game could be the springboard for the club to mount a push to return to the top flight of Scottish football.
