Match Report

History has already been made by the Hibees this season, and of course next week’s Scottish Cup final represents an opportunity to create even more.

Before that though is the final home league game of the season, with Celtic providing the opposition in the lunchtime kick-off.

It will be an emotional occasion for former Hibs man and current Celtic captain Scott Brown, who is heading for a new player/coach role at Aberdeen after 14 years with the Hoops, and it could be the last game for a few others ahead of what looks like a summer of change at Parkhead.

For us though, clinching third place with a game to spare up at Aberdeen on Wednesday night means the pressure is off somewhat – and that means Jack Ross is likely to make a number of personnel changes with Hampden looming large on the horizon.

Goals from Callum McGregor, Albian Ajeti and Mohamed Elyounoussi gave Celtic a 3-0 win over Hibs in Glasgow in September, but it was a much closer game at Easter Road in November.

Jamie Murphy and Kevin Nisbet had the home side on course for an excellent victory, but an Odsonne Edouard penalty and an injury time equaliser by Diego Laxalt meant it ended 2-2.

However, Hibs got a measure of revenge back in January when Nisbet struck late on to earn a 1-1 draw after David Turnbull’s free-kick looked like giving Celtic the win.
