'Why was that goal disallowed', 'Gave them too much respect' - Hibs fans react to Rangers defeat
Hibs fans were frustrated after another game against Rangers in which they competed but left empty-handed.
Joe Aribo scored the opener on 20 minutes before Ryan Kent doubled the lead on the hour mark. Kevin Nisbet’s 78th-minute header offered Hibs hope but the Gers held on.
Jack Gillies said: “We came back along the M8 empty handed today unfortunately. We weren’t clinical enough; Rangers took their chances, we didn’t, and we had a perfectly fine goal disallowed which was unfortunate. We gave a decent account of ourselves and were unlucky.”
Mark Smith added: “Thought Hibs had plenty chances today and on another day could easily have had 2 or 3. Hanlon and Porteous were excellent. Also why was that goal disallowed?”
Paul Welsh wrote: “Porteous played well, and hopefully Hibs get better results, from now on compared to last game in G51.”
Jordan Brown opined: “Two poor goals to give away from our point of view and too much respect given to them at times as well. Nisbet looking back to his best and a well deserved goal. Porteous outstanding as well.”
Mick Granley pointed out: “Twelve without a win over Rangers now.”
Steve McKenzie saw red, or rather, yellow: “Disappointed not to get something. Main point I want to make though is can we start wearing our green and white strip when there’s clearly no kit clash?”
Euan Wilson added: “We scored a perfectly legitimate goal that was disallowed from a corner, and our goal came from a cross into the box from open play. I felt we had the better of the aerial battle today and for me if anything should’ve exploited more.”
