Neil Lennon’s Hibees welcome the Ibrox outfit on Sunday, May 13 (kick-off 12.30pm) in a match that could have a bearing on who finishes second in the league.

Hibs have sold out all their briefs for the West, East and North Stands and have therefore decided to halve the South Stand between home and away fans. Tickets are now available to buy for Hibs fans, with the club anticipating a home sell-out.

The Capital side usually hand over all of the 3900-capacity South Stand to the Old Firm when they visit, but with unprecedented demand for seats in the home end, Hibs are keen to accommodate as many of their own supporters as possible.

Hibs halved the South Stand back in 2015 when Rangers played them in the Premiership play-offs, but failed to sell out the stadium as the Gers prevailed with a 2-1 aggregate win.

With four games left of the season, Rangers currently occupy second place with Aberdeen on 65 points, with fourth-placed Hibs a further three points back on 62.
