Rangers clash won’t decide title, suggests Hibernian’s Fraser Fyvie

Rangers FC Stands

Rangers will face Hibernian at Ibrox in Glasgow in the Scottish Championship this afternoon.

Hibernian midfielder Fraser Fyvie has suggested to The Edinburgh Evening News that this afternoon’s match against Rangers is not decisive in the Scottish Championship title race.

Rangers will take on Hibernian at Ibrox in Glasgow in a few hours’ time. The Gers and the Hibs are the two frontrunners for the Championship title this season.

Winners of the league will automatically get promoted to the Scottish Premiership at the end of the season.

“It won’t determine the rest of the season, win, lose or draw,” Fyvie told The Edinburgh Evening News. “The likes of Alloa, Livingston, Morton, Dumbarton and so on are all tough places to go.

“These teams will test you, they won’t let you walk over them. They know when the play us, Rangers or Falkirk they have to play well.

Rangers are at the top of the Scottish Championship table at the moment with 41 points from 17 matches. Hibernian are level on points with the Glasgow giants, but they are second due to an inferior goal difference.

Mark Warburton’s side will head into the game against Hibs on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Falkirk away from home at the Falkirk Stadium. It followed a disappointing 2-2 draw with Greenock Morton at Ibrox in Glasgow.

Hibernian will head into Monday afternoon’s match on the back of a 1-0 victory over Queen of the South. Alan Stubbs’s side are in good form at the moment and could pick up all three points from the encounter in Glasgow.
