Neil Lennon has said that he won’t be happy if Hibernian are forced to play Rangers at Ibrox for the third time this season.

The potential fixture possibility has come about because of the top and bottom split in the Premiership, which is due to happen on April 7.

The top and bottom six will then face off against each other for the rest of the season.

If the top six stays the same then there will be issues as Rangers have already played the other sides twice at home but are due two more games on home soil.

That raises the probability of one of the teams being made to travel to Ibrox again and Lennon has said that he wouldn’t be happy about that.

“I wouldn’t be too happy about going to Ibrox for a third time,” Lennon said in the Daily Record.

“I think we’ve earned the right and the club have earned the right to have another game against Rangers at home, with a capacity crowd. That’s the whole point in getting promoted and making the top six.”

The fixture problem is one of the downsides of the Premiership split, with pros and cons to the system.

Lennon himself admits that it makes the end of the season more exciting but is still adamant that he doesn’t want his team disadvantaged.
