Hibs v Rangers: Alfie to excel in feisty Friday fixture


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) shares his best bets from Friday night's mouthwatering Scottish Premiership contest between Hibs and Rangers.

Hibs v Rangers | Friday 8th March 2019, 19:45 | BT Sport

Rangers are running out of time in their bid to catch Celtic but on Friday night can pile pressure on Neil Lennon. Steven Gerrard's men will be all out to close the gap to five points then sit back and hope Aberdeen take something from Parkhead on Saturday.

Paul Heckingbottom started well with three wins in charge of Hibs but got it all wrong against Celtic in the Scottish Cup. His side hardly laid a glove on the champions and he knows they'll need to be much improved in front of the cameras tonight.

Gerrard may have one eye on Tuesday's Scottish Cup replay with the Dons but has to get the job done and Gers are a best 5/7 with Unibet. That looks short considering both meetings this season have been draws and Gers have won once in five visits to Easter Road. Earlier this season it was 0-0 and before that there was the remarkable 5-5 draw not to be forgotten for Lennon's aeroplane celebration.

Hibs had netted 11 in four after Lenny's exit before being beaten by his Celtic side so Both Teams To Score has a chance 9/11 with Unibet and Marc McNulty is their most likely scorer at 11/8.

At the end of a week that's seen huge underdogs Ajax and Man United progress in the Champions League the Hibees are 4/1 at Ladbrokes while a draw pays 3/1.

Alfredo Morelos managed to stay on the park against Aberdeen and will be looking to do more damage here. The Colombian netted Gers' only goal against the Hibees this term on Boxing Day and is 4/1 at McBookie to score first and a tempting 6/5 with bet365 to strike at any time.

This fixture can be fiery too with recent history between the sides including Hibs' Scottish Cup Final win. A red card has a chance at 10/3 with Bet365.

Best Bets

Hibs v Rangers – Alfredo Morelos to score at anytime (6/5 Bet365)

Hibs v Rangers – Both Teams To Score (9/11 Unibet)

Hibs v Rangers – Red card in the match (10/3 Bet365)
