Rangers will be seeking revenge in the capital this evening after Hibernian knocked them out of the League Cup earlier this month, while looking to maintain their four-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
The Ibrox club have responded well to that hammer-blow, following up their Europa League victory over Sparta Prague with a commanding 3-1 success at Livingston on Sunday, as Scott Arfield, Joe Aribo and Fashion Sakala all got on the scoresheet.
New manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst will aim to make it three wins out of three when they arrive at Easter Road, a venue the Gers have had a mixed recent record at, winning two and drawing four of their previous visits.
Hibernian has found it difficult to maintain their impressive early season domestic form but a victory over the Light Blues would see them climb back into top five.
Jack Ross’ men followed up their Hampden heroics with a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Ross County in the highlands but bounced back on Saturday, thanks to Jamie Murphy’s late winner against St Johnstone.
