Everything you need to know ahead of Wednesday's game at Ibrox.

Hibs travel to Rangers in the Ladbrokes Premiership looking to remain undefeated in Scottish football in 2020.

Jack Ross' side have drawn three and won twice since returning from the winter break, with the most recent result coming in the form of a comeback 2-2 draw against St Mirren on Saturday.

They'll need to play significantly better if they're going to keep the run going, even if Rangers are suffering through their poorest domestic form of the campaign.

The Ibrox side were held by Aberdeen at the weekend, just six days after being defeated by Hearts at Tynecastle.

The title-challengers will know they can't afford any further slip-ups as they look to stop Celtic winning their ninth consecutive title.

Hibs have avoided defeat on five of their last 10 trips to Ibrox, though they were humbled 6-1 by Steven Gerrard's men on their most recent visit back in August.

Rangers team news: James Tavernier is set to make his return from injury after being fit enough to take a place on the bench for Saturday's 0-0 draw with Aberdeen. Ryan Jack is expected to remain on the sidelines after sustaining an injury against Hearts, while Greg Stewart is yet to return. Florian Kamberi is unable to play against his parent club.

Probable Rangers team: McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic; Davis, Arfield, Aribo; Hagi, Morelos, Kent.

Hibs team news: Paul McGinn is in line to make his first start as a Hibs player after coming off the bench to make his debut on Saturday. Fellow substitute, Greg Docherty, is unavailable as he's not allowed to play against his parent club. Ryan Porteous continues to recover from long-term injury.

Probable Hibs team: Marciano; McGinn, McGregor, Hanlon, Stevenson; Hallberg, Omeonga; Boyle, Allan, Horgan; Doidge.

Key clash: It's got to be Paul Hanlon and Darren McGregor going up against Alfredo Morelos. Keep the Colombian quiet and off the scoresheet and Hibs will have a chance of taking a result back to Easter Road.

Last meeting: Rangers easily defeated Hibs at Easter Road, winning 3-0 while the hosts had Ryan Porteous sent off.

Referee: It's the first time Bobby Madden will take charge of a Hibs league game this season, though he has handled two Betfred Cup matches involving the Easter Road club. The first was a group stage victory over Arbroath at Easter Road. The other was the semi-final defeat to Celtic at Hampden.

Odds: Rangers 1/5 Draw 11/2 Hibs 12/1
