Rangers 3 – Hibernian 2: Neil Lennon makes gestures to Ibrox fans in fiery tussle
After Alfredo Morelos gave the Gers an early lead, Simon Murray levelled for the Hibees and Lennon turned to the home fans in the Main Stand, cupping his ears and making an underarm gesture.
His team went on to win through a James Tavernier own-goal and a Vykintas Slivka strike, with Tavernier pulling one back late on as the Light Blues finished with 10 men.
Ryan Jack was sent off in the first half after a tussle with Dylan McGeouch. Rangers had six players booked, with Hibs handed three yellows.
When it was suggested that Rangers assistant manager Helder Baptista had spoken to the police about him, the Hibs boss replied: “He should have got back in his box.
“I don’t know what he was saying, I assume he was unhappy about something. I didn’t make a gesture, I celebrated a goal. If they are unhappy about it, they can come and tell me. I am celebrating a goal. What way are you supposed to celebrate a goal?
“If I pick my nose, someone will find something to criticise me for, I am celebrating a goal.
“You are looking for things that aren’t there.”
Gers boss Pedro Caixinha said: “If I listen to what I listened to today, with the other manager getting to the fourth official the way he did, that allows me to go the same way, but I don’t have the same principles.”
