March 30, (THEWILL)- Rangers have reclaimed the top spot in the Scottish Premiership with a 3-1 victory over Hibernian at Ibrox. The match was a rollercoaster of emotions, featuring disallowed goals, dramatic comebacks, and moments of sheer brilliance.

The home side initially thought they had taken the lead in the 21st minute when Scott Wright slotted home the rebound from a saved James Tavernier penalty. However, VAR intervened, ruling Wright had encroached during the initial spot-kick, and the goal was disallowed. Undeterred, Rangers skipper Tavernier made amends by firing in his 22nd goal of the season to break the deadlock.

Hibernian equalised spectacularly on the stroke of half-time, with Myziane Maolida poking home from close range. However, Rangers responded immediately, with Nigerian forward Cyriel Dessers restoring their lead with a thumping header before the interval.

The second half saw Rangers maintain their dominance, with substitute Rabbi Matondo delivering the coup de grâce in the 85th minute, driving in a wonderful third goal to seal the victory. The win propels Rangers two points clear of bitter rivals Celtic, having played the same number of games, setting up a mouthwatering Old Firm derby next weekend.

With every passing week, the tension in the title race intensified and Philippe Clement’s side demonstrated their resilience and determination in securing this crucial triumph. As the season enters its final stages, Rangers have served notice of their intent to wrestle the Premiership crown from Celtic’s grasp.
