And that's it for a typical frantic evening in Leith. We're back tomorrow with the rest of the weekend's Scottish football action. Keep the heid.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has explained what the comotion on the sidelines after Ryan Porteous' red card was all about.
Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "We all understand that there are bad tackles. I've done a few myself. There is no problem with that but you can't defend that. So obviously our emotions are running high but I think when it all cools down both benches maybe have to have a look at their behaviour.
"I'll certainly be speaking to my staff on that front. But we were disappointed with the reaction from them trying to defend that because it's a straight red. There's no two ways about it."
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard took a moment to appreciate his team's third goal and in particular the manner in which Jermain Defore scored it.
"Let's all just admire Jermain Defoe. He's not going to be around for very much longer. So let's just admire real, high-class forward play. The first touch and second touch are world class and he does what he does."
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard believes tonight's victory was symbolic in showing the team's critics that they can score and win games without striker Alfredo Morelos.
Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "We get a lot of praise. I'm not saying we don't. It's just that to some people it's a surprise but we're used to the heat and pressure being on us. For me, under the lights with the TV here and everyone's got the headlines ready. That we're a one-man band and can't cope without Alfredo Morelos and blah, blah, blah. Unfortunately they can't write those headlines tomorrow."
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard on BT Sport: "There has been heat on myself and this team since I first walked in the door. That's what you have to accept and demand. We've come here today and put in a really strong away performance. Hibs couldn't deal with our intensity and quality. We thoroughly deserved our win."

It was a fiery old evening in Leith, six yellows and a red card brandished, all but one of them for the home side.

BBC Scotland's chief sports writerQuote Message: Hibs didn't give themselves a chance tonight. Even at 1-0. I thought Rangers were very, very good. They could have scored more. This is a substantial win for Rangers. Steven Gerrard will be thrilled.
Rangers winger Ryan Kent on BT Sport: "We set the tempo from the start, we pressed hard from the front, we were solid and got off to a good start.
"Maybe they got frustrated as the game progressed, we kept the ball really well, frustrated them.
"[Shipping a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Aberdeen at Pittodrie] was mentioned at half-time, not to get lazy in possession, to go out in the second half and try and pick up where we left off."

That was a shellacking. Rangers storm the capital, take their three points, and keep up their tit-for-tat pursuit of Celtic at the Scottish Premiership summit. They're within two of their city rivals now, who host Aberdeen tomorrow.
Ryan Kent pounced on a shocking Ofir Marciano error to open the scoring after just three minutes. Joe Aribo made it 2-0 four minutes later with a cracking finish.
Jermain Defoe put any faint hopes of a Hibs comeback to bed early in the second half before Ryan Porteous was sent off for a wild tackle of Borna Barisic after the break.
Rangers could and should have scored more, playing out the final quarter in second gear rather than filleting Hibs any further.
Unsurprisingly, a hefty addition of stoppage time will follow Ryan Porteous' red card. Four minutes will be played, and we're into those now.
More patient build-up play from Rangers, who pull depleted Hibs left and right, before Scott Arfield curls one just over from about 20 yards.
We're into the final two minutes of normal time and it's still all Rangers. It's like a training drill, this. The home stands are almost entirely empty.
Former Hearts & Rangers winger on BBC SportsoundQuote Message: Hibs just want to limit the damage now. Don't concede again. If you can nick something and get up the park then fine. But I don't think it's a game you can start flooding people forward because then you could be left with a really embarrassing scoreline.
Brandon Barker comes very close to bagging Rangers' fourth against his former team. The winger darts into the box from the left but a fine Ofir Marciano save keeps the score at 3-0.
Five minutes left now. Rangers are just bumbling along in second gear, not really going for the jugular, but you know they could pile on the hurt if they seriously stepped it up.
As if we haven't had enough aggro tonight, Christian Doidge can't reach a hopeful through ball and runs into Allan McGregor as the goalkeeper shepherds him off the pitch.
As Doidge careers towards the advertising boards, he grabs hold of McGregor's arm, and they both take a tumble. As you can imagine, the Rangers stopper is none too impressed with the WWE-style armbar employed by the Welshman.
That's the final change for Rangers, Greg Stewart on for the immensely impressive Ryan Jack.
