Rangers storm back to hammer Hibs

 

Hibernian 1 Rangers 4:Walter Smith’s side showed their title credentials by staging a remarkable comeback against Hibernian and restore their four-point advantage over Celtic.

Republic of Ireland striker Anthony Stokes left the Glasgow side reeling when he claimed the SPL’s fastest-ever goal after 12.4 seconds — beating the record previously held by Saulius Mikoliunas for Hearts back in 2006 — but it was not enough for Hibs to maintain their impressive assault on the Old Firm’s dominance this season.

Rangers hit back through a double from Kenny Miller and goals from Kris Boyd and Nacho Novo to end the Edinburgh club’s unbeaten run of 13 league games and bring their own tally of goals to 19 for the month of December.
