Rangers   0 - 3   Hibernian

Highlights - Rangers 0-3 Hibernian

Highlights - Rangers 0-3 Hibernian

Hibernian claimed their first points under new boss Colin Calderwood with an emphatic away victory over Scottish Premier League leaders Rangers.

Liam Miller's swerving shot took goalkeeper Allan McGregor by surprise and ended in the net to give the visitors a sixth-minute lead.

And John Rankin's stunning right-foot strike put Hibs two up on 19 minutes.

Goalkeeper Mark Brown preserved Hibs' advantage with a string of saves and Francis Dickoh lashed in a late third.

Hibs' victory, their first at Ibrox since 2007, arrests a run of three straight defeats and moves them up to eighth in the table.

Rangers' first SPL home defeat since March 2009 ends their unbeaten domestic record for the season but, with Celtic losing at Hearts, Walter Smith's side remain top of the division by a point.

The hosts started in determined mood and, after Kyle Lafferty and Maurice Edu had shots blocked, Steven Naismith's effort was tipped over by Brown.

But the visitors stunned the home crowd when the impressive Miller escaped the attentions of Lee McCulloch before finding the net with a swerving shot that deceived McGregor, who tried to clear with his feet.

And Hibs could have doubled their lead when Miller crossed for David Wotherspoon, whose shot was blocked by McGregor.

Lafferty, who had fired wide just after Rangers went behind, threatened again when he got on the end of a Madjid Bougherra cross but Brown again saved well.

Hibs were growing in confidence and pressed home their advantage when Miller played the ball across to Rankin, who found the top corner from the edge of the penalty box with his weaker right foot.

Shell-shocked Rangers were struggling to pick their passes but almost reduced their deficit when David Weir's header was cleared off the line by Valdas Trakys.

Bougherra was similarly frustrated when his shot from a tight angle was blocked by Brown.

Rangers' first-half misery was compounded when both Edu and Sasa Papac sustained injuries had to be replaced by Vladimir Weiss and Kirk Broadfoot, respectively.

Brown foiled Kenny Miller with another fine save seconds before the half-time whistle.

And the goalkeeper continued to frustrate his former club after the break with an excellent save from McCulloch's shot.

Another Weir header was cleared off the line by Trakys before a Rankin effort forced McGregor into a finger-tip save.

But Hibs did get a third when Rankin's corner was headed down by Sol Bamba to defensive partner Dickoh, who smashed the ball into the net in the 76th minute.

And the visitors dealt with a series of late corners to keep their clean sheet intact.
