Hibernian drew with the Bluenoses in their last match in the Scottish Premiership.
Hibernian boss Neil Lennon has said that he is happy with the point he picked up against Rangers in their last match. Lennon’s side made a match out of their contest vs Steven Gerrard’s side and clinched a point from the heavily contested match.
Lennon said, “It was a great point in the end. I thought we rode our luck at times. It wasn’t ideal losing our goalkeeper after little over 10 minutes. That sort of affects the way you want to use your substitutions. I thought we started the game well and then Rangers came on very strong. Listen, I am delighted with the point. I think we can play better, but you have to give credit to Rangers as well. I thought they were very good.”
He added, “They were great saves [from Bogdan]. They probably had the two best chances of the first half, then we had two great chances with Oli. But Morelos was always a threat tonight. He was very, very good. I was singing his praises before the game and I was glad he didn’t have his shooting boots on because he was a real threat. I thought Rangers did the dirty bits of the game a lot better than we did. But that is maybe to be expected with the size of the club they are and the finances they have. It was a good learning curve for some of our younger players as well. I thought Ryan Porteous again had a very strong game, Hyndman had a good game. We looked a little bit leggy towards the end of the game and that is obviously a worry for me.”
