Sky Sports Scottish football pundits Ian Crocker and Andy Walker have been predicting the upcoming Scottish Premiership fixtures and both are in agreement that Rangers will fail to win against Hibernian at Easter Road on Wednesday night.
In their column on the Sky Sports website, both men are tipping the Light Blues to pick up less than three points against Hibs, but differ on the match outcome and the scoreline.
Ian Crocker is going for a 2-2 draw between the sides, and his key man for the game is Hibs striker Oli Shaw, who he believes is a “bright and lively presence” after he found the net against Celtic at the weekend.
Meanwhile Walker – who had a brief spell at Hibs – is going for a 2-1 win for Neil Lennon’s side.
His key man for the game is Hibs midfielder John McGinn, who he thinks will “likely…move in January”.
The two teams had a highly controversial clash at Ibrox in August, Hibs winning by three goals to two. Ryan Jack – who is suspended for Wednesday’s game at Easter Road – was sent-off but later had the decision over-turned.
Whilst Neil Lennon was accused of over-celebrating the goals scored by his team in their victory.
The Gers go into the game in a good run of form, having won three league games in a row for the first time and a year and overtaken Aberdeen into second place in the Scottish Premiership table.
