RANGERS take on Hibernian in tomorrow’s Scottish Cup Final at the National Stadium, and we’ve pulled together everything you could ever wish to know about our opponents from Leith…
NICKNAME: The Hibees
STADIUM: Easter Road
GROUND CAPACITY: 20,421
MANAGER: Alan Stubbs
CAPTAIN: David Gray
Alan Stubbs: “It will help that we have played there a few times this season. In the old days it was only one game and when you came out, you could be completely in awe of the place. Sometimes you can lost sight of having a game of football to play and it can sweep you off your feet.
“But we have had the experience of it this season. In the League Cup final I thought we performed quite well but didn’t get the result. Against Dundee United in the Scottish Cup semi-final, we didn’t perform as well but we got the result. Tomorrow we have to bring our ‘A’ game.”

LAST MATCH REPORT
FULL REPORT: Rangers lost their first match since being crowned Championship champions this evening, going down to Hibernian at Easter Road.
Coming just 72 hours after Sunday’s epic and unforgettable Scottish Cup semi-final win over Celtic, Mark Warburton’s side were unable to lift themselves to the same levels they found at Hampden, although they would have been extremely disappointed with the manner in which they conceded Hibs’ goals.
