Rangers midfielder Nicky Law discusses the importance of Hibernian clash

Rangers FC Stands

Mark Warburton's side have watched their lead at the top of the Scottish Championship table disappear in recent weeks.

Nicky Law has insisted that Rangers' top-of-the-table clash with Hibernian is their biggest game of the season so far, and urged the Gers' supporters to create a special atmosphere at Ibrox next Monday, The Scottish Sun reports.

Mark Warburton's side go into the game off the back of a run that has seen them win just once in their last four league games.

Their defeat to Falkirk at the weekend allowed Alan Stubbs' side to draw level on points with their title rivals ahead of the pair's meeting. 

Law explained to The Scottish Sun that this clash was always going to be a huge game, no matter what form the two sides were coming into the fixture with.

"We need to win that game. It's our biggest match of the season, but it was always going to be, even before our result on Saturday," he said. "It's one we need to find a way to win. It'll be a great game and the fans will be hugely important for us.

"I'm sure they will be right behind us. I remember the play-off game against Hibs last season and they were unbelievable that day.

"They really spurred us on, fantastic from first whistle to last, and we'll need that again. We're going through a tough spell and we need everyone to stick together to get us through it."

Law's concerns over Rangers' recent blip will surely be magnified by Hibs' own run of form currently. The Easter Road outfit are unbeaten in their last 14 league games and have only drawn twice during that spell.

However, the Gers can take some confidence in that they enjoyed a similarly dominant run at the beginning of the campaign, and it was they who inflicted Hibs' most recent defeat. 

With the momentum swinging currently in Hibernian's favour, it is imperative that Rangers send out a clear message to their title rivals that they are still the ones to catch this season.
