It’s no cause for celebration – but Hibs boss Jack Ross was certainly pleased with how his side handled their match with Rangers.
The Hibees played out a 2-2 draw with Rangers. They had been in front through Drey Wright, the winger nutmegging Gers stopper Jon McLaughlin in what was the first goal the away side had conceded all season.
But they roared back into the match, Alfredo Morelos scoring before half time and then Scott Arfield putting Rangers ahead just after the hour mark. Hibs weren’t out of this one though.
Christian Doidge netted an equaliser just over 20 minutes from time to ensure Ross’ men got a deserved point from their biggest test of the season so far. It leaves them nice and comfortable in third place.
Speaking after the game, Ross said that whilst there will be no partying following a share of the spoils with Rangers, his players should be immensley proud of their application in the game.
“We’re not celebrating because we’ve drawn the game,” said Ross (Hibs TV). “We wanted to win it but the players deserves a huge amount of credit and should take pride in their performance.
“To come from behind to still create and score was terrific. I think it was another barometer of where they could be this season. It’s encouraging that we keep believing in the things we are learning from victories.
“The work rate they put in to be in a good defensive position was incredible. And then still have the energy to try and create. There are so many aspects that are pleasing.”
